The design-build, one-stop-shopping approach is the most cost effective and time saving method to complete your next construction project, compared to the conventional design-bid-build process.
Benefits of Design-Build:
Contractor and design accountability (contractor hires architect and engineer)
One point of contact from project conception to completion
Ensures client building plans are executed with maximum precision
Minimizes cost overruns and change orders
Faster overall design and construction time
The design-build construction system is a contracting method that is gaining popularity, as it can provide significant cost and time savings for owners. Whereas the traditional design-bid-build process separates design and construction, design-build provides a single point of responsibility for an entire construction project. Instead of the owner contracting separately with the architect and the contractor, design-build typically ties the architect contractually to the contractor. The contractor then enters into a design-build contract with the owner. The owner now only has to deal with one entity, the design-build team, and not each one separately.
How it works...
At Datum Construction, we select an architect/engineer for a specific project and place him/her under contract as part of our design-build team. We then work with the owner to plan, design and construct the project to meet the specific goals, constraints and demands of the project.
