Design-build is best for a project with tight budgets and/or schedules. Similar to the CM|GC method, Design-Build is where we hire the architect and engineers and manage the design process. The advantages to you are one point of contact, and we can begin our value management activities from the very start.
Our process for this delivery method is creating a plan based on your input and expectations. Together, we will establish project goals and tailor a project strategy that fits and meets your priorities.
When we begin construction, our team transfers their understanding of the project to the field, operating with full knowledge of goals, technical details, and key issues so the vision for the project reflected in the design is executed flawlessly during construction.
We recently finished the Capstone Classical Academy, a charter high school (photos, left) as a design-build project. Because the architect, HVAC, and electrical engineers were hired as part of our team, we were able to direct the design, so the Academy was built with attractive and highly functional materials, but within their highly constrained budget. And with our knowledge of the project, our ability to self-perform, and the long-term relationships we have with K12 subcontractors, we were able to build the project in just five months.
