Efficiency and accountability are important to owners looking to complete construction projects on time and on budget. That’s why design-build construction has become an increasingly popular project delivery method - a single point of responsibility streamlines communication and fast-tracks construction projects.
With design-build construction, the architect and construction manager work together from project start to finish, simplifying the communication process and proactively solving issues that may arise. When faced with things like schedule changes or additional costs, a design-build process eliminates the confusion and “blame game” between key stakeholders that come with unexpected changes.
One of the biggest advantages of the design-build delivery method is that the owner has only one point of contact. A design-build contract simplifies the owner’s role in the project and gives all stakeholders a clear line of accountability. It doesn’t just stop at the owner, either; in design-build methodology, the owner’s wishes are communicated directly to the design and construction teams. With one point of contact, there are fewer layers of communication needed, leading to better outcomes and more productive owner involvement.
For owners and contractors, the construction manager is the primary point of contact, simplifying communication and streamlining the construction process.
Designers, architects, and the construction manager are involved from the beginning of the project and work closely to accomplish project goals.
The design-build process cuts down on procedural waste and promotes high efficiency.
High collaboration and streamlined communication processes cut down on miscommunication, which keeps the project nimble.
