design-build approach

Design-build is a project delivery system in which one firm assumes total responsibility for the design and construction of a project.  As a result, construction administration runs much smoother.  One of the key advantages of the design-build approach is its compression of the more traditional construction schedule. With the design-build approach, construction can begin even before the drawings are complete.  “Fast-tracking” is a means of compressing the construction schedule, which allows field construction to begin before detailed design refinements have been completed.

 

• Single source of responsibility
• Increased communication and coordination
• Reduction of project duration by “fast-tracking”
• No adversarial relationship between contractor and designer
• Early guarantee of project cost and schedule
• Ongoing value engineering and constructability review
• Avoidance of errors and omissions claims

After concept development, the design-builder provides the owner with a firm price proposal which establishes the project duration and cost.  Project budgets are established and guaranteed early in the design phase by the design-builder, so the owner knows early in the process that the project is within budget.  Greater participation by the design-builder during the design process results in heightened constructability review and increased value engineering efforts.
