Fast-tracked projects are common in the world of commercial building, which often leads to an overlap between the design and construction stages. The traditional approach is to keep these separate and have different contractors in charge of each job. Design-build, on the other hand, puts both tasks under one contract. It creates just one point of responsibility for the client and comes with a wide range of benefits, from greater simplicity to faster project completion and cost savings.
HR Construction offers design-build construction services to a variety of commercial clients throughout the United States. This approach allows us to offer greater convenience and more opportunities for collaboration, cohesion, and risk aversion. Our skilled in-house team partners with reliable subcontractors and brings your vision to life as a trusted design-build construction company.
What Is Design-Build
A design-build strategy simplifies the point of contact for the hiring company. Without design-build agreements, HR Construction still works intimately with design teams, bringing expertise on topics of constructability and job-site practicality. We may steer the design process to improve production efficiency and speed, but we would not have contractual oversight of the design team. This can make it difficult to implement construction needs and improvements that would best fit the project.
When we take a design-build approach, we can team up with architects, engineers, interior designers, and other parties to better bring our client’s ideas to fruition. This strategy dramatically simplifies the contractual status of the project, providing the client with just one entity that’s accountable to them. HR Construction can perform all required due diligence as well as facilitate the programming, estimating and budgeting, preparing documents for designs and contracts, scheduling, procuring, and, ultimately, performing the construction itself.
With design-build, we have much more control over the project’s design phases, which can help us improve a range of outcomes. According to the Design-Build Institute of America, design-build construction offers:
– Lower unit costs
– Faster construction
– Less cost growth
– Less scheduled growth
– Faster delivery speeds
Design-build supports high-quality projects and can result in many efficiencies and cost benefits for clients.
