Everyone in the building business touts Design/Build as we do, quicker/cheaper.
The fact is that the right design team, coupled with competent contractors often can help drive the design forward. How do we drive the process?
As builders we must have speed in our processes to survive.
As builders we gauge the costs compared to the design early on in the process.
We accelerate the construction schedule by moving forward with early phases (site work as an example) to accelerate the whole project schedule.
The bottom line is, while traditional processes are grinding along, struggling with budgets, re- working plans and possibilities, Design-Build teams are energized to get the project on-line and completed faster.
