What is Design-Build?

Design-Build is a method of project delivery in which the Builder signs a single contract accepting full responsibility for both design and construction services of a specific project.

What are the benefits of Design-Build?

The benefits to be gained in establishing a well-designed and managed Design-Build process include the following:

Singular Responsibility. With both design and construction in the hands of a single entity, there is a single point of responsibility for quality, architectural oversight, cost and schedule adherence. The design-builder objective is to deliver a successful project by fulfilling multiple parallel objectives, including aesthetic and functional quality, budget, and schedule for timely completion. With design-build, the owner is able to focus on scope/needs definition and timely decision-making, rather than on coordination between designer and builder.

Quality. The singularized responsibility inherent in design-build serves as a motivation for quality and proper project performance. The Design-Builder warrants to the Owner that it will produce design documents that are complete and free from error. (By contrast, the “Traditional” design-bid-build, the Owner warrants to the Contractor that the drawings specifications are complete and free from error. Because it is the Owner’s warranty for the design documents under design-bid-build, the traditional approach relies on restrictive contract language, audit and inspection and occasionally, the legal system, to ensure final project quality.)

Cost Savings. Design and construction personnel, working and communicating as a team, evaluate alternative materials and methods efficiently and accurately. Value engineering and constructability are utilized continuously and more effectively when the designers and contractors work as one team during the entire design process.
