Design & Build
The Design and Build process typically involves several key steps, including:
- Conceptualization: The project owner and the Design-Builder collaborate to define the project's goals, scope, and requirements.
- Design Development: The Design-Builder uses their expertise to develop a design that meets the owner's requirements while also considering factors such as budget, schedule, and constructability.
- Construction: Once the design has been approved, the Design-Builder takes on the responsibility of constructing the project, including managing subcontractors, scheduling, and quality control.
- Post-Construction: After construction is complete, the Design-Builder may provide ongoing support, such as maintenance and repairs, to ensure the project continues to meet the owner's needs.
Design and Build has become a popular project delivery method due to its many benefits, including a streamlined process, faster delivery, and increased accountability.
