Top 3 Benefits of Working with a Design-Build Contractor
Whether you want to remodel a single room or your whole house, there are several advantages to using the design-build method of construction over the classic design-bid-build method. Contracting out the work to several different contractors can lead to miscommunication and costly mistakes. Working with a design-build contractor means you have a single point of contact for all aspects of your project’s design and construction, thus eliminating schedule delays and overblown budgets.
1. One Team, One Contact
A design-build firm eliminates problems that could arise between multiple independent contractors, architects, general contractors, and designers. When you work with a design-build team, everyone already knows how to work well with one another. Working with a design-build firm also eliminates the constant back and forth communications that can arise between you and a variety of engineers, architects, construction managers, and designers. When working with a design-build team, you also streamline the collaboration process to a single point of contact to answer any questions or concerns.
2. Budget Management
When working with a design-build firm, you only have to pay a single set of fees, rather than the multiple consultation fees, hourly fees, and countless other fees you will encounter when working with multiple firms. A design-build firm can also conceptualize an entire project and set a budget from the beginning, because they are aware of all possible pricing and fees. This removes ambiguity, increases efficiency, and allows for a smooth transition between each stage of construction.
3. Faster Project Completion
The collaboration process of design and construction projects can take weeks or even months and can involve hundreds of timelines. However, design-build projects can be completed in less time due to reduced bid time, flexible scheduling (projects can even begin before the design is finalized), and potential construction problems are uncovered early.
