Design-Build: An efficient method to create new spaces

Many homeowners may not have encountered the term design-build before, but when researching the process of remodeling or new construction, they may come upon that term. It’s not a new concept, but has grown in popularity in the past decade in the construction industry.

So, what is design-build? Design/build is a process where an entire remodeling or new construction project – from the initial design concepts and budgets to permits, regulations and zoning laws to actual construction and final walk through – are organized and performed by a single entity, a single point of responsibility.

In past decades, he traditional approach for construction projects consists of the appointment of a designer on one side, and the appointment of a contractor on the other side. The design–build system changes the traditional sequence of work.

So, why is this important to a homeowner? The efficiency of this process allows for tight control of costs; management of the construction schedule; and a quick turn-around between design, construction and completion. Design/build prevents remodeling horror stories. Senior staff oversees the entire process, ensuring that the project will be delivered on time and on budget.
