Design Build

Ever thought about adding Design Build to your list of services? Already doing it? Design Build merges 2 very different disciplines to gain advantages for the customer and if done right for the contractor as well.

The difficulties for the contractor can be complicated.

Combining the 2 specialties can promote resistance and ill feelings among the departments. Distinct criterion for finishing the design and its hand off to Construction are imperative. As is clear communication from Build when changes to the design are considered.

Success is dependent on consistent, well documented processes for Project Management. Difficulties aside, if sold and managed correctly the rewards can be huge. Let us show you how to gain the advantage.
