We work with you from start to finish
We specialize in providing comprehensive design & build services for commercial construction projects. Our team of experienced architects, engineers, and contractors will work with you from start to finish to bring your vision to life.
What is Design-Build?
Design-build is a delivery method in which a single entity, typically a contractor or construction firm, provides both design and construction services for a project. This approach can offer several benefits compared to other delivery methods, such as:
With design-build, the designer and contractor are part of the same team, which can make communication and coordination easier and more efficient.
Because the designer and contractor are working together from the outset, it may be possible to identify cost-saving opportunities earlier in the process, leading to potential cost savings for the client.
In a design-build project, the contractor is typically responsible for any design errors or omissions, which can reduce risk for the client.
With design-build, the design and construction phases overlap, which can potentially reduce the overall duration of the project.
Design-build encourages collaboration between the design and construction teams, which can lead to more innovative solutions and a better overall project outcome.
It’s important to note that design-build is not the right delivery method for every project, and it’s important to carefully consider the specific needs and goals of your project before deciding which delivery method is best.

This may include negotiating contracts with subcontractors and suppliers, as well as ensuring that all parties involved in the project are meeting their contractual obligations.
A construction manager may be responsible for ensuring that the project is being built to the required specifications and standards, and for identifying and addressing any issues that arise.

A construction manager may be responsible for coordinating communication between all parties involved in the project, including the owner, design professionals, contractors, and subcontractors.
