The design build method is one of the most effective ways to build. Clients select a design build arrangement when they want to work with one contract entity, instead of a separate contractor and consultants. By bringing all project team members together in the design phase, the design build method helps foster a more successful partnership.
At Miles & Kelley, our team of professionals are some of the most respected in the business. They pride themselves on their ingenuity in solving problems and creating environments that motivate and inspire. This is the way we are able to best serve our clients. Reasons we recommend Design Build Construction:
- By making both the designer and the builder mutually responsible for the completed project, obstacles that often delay a project are avoided. And while design build can't control certain conditions such as weather delays, eliminating all controllable opportunities for delay is critical to a timely delivery. Design Build construction saves time.
- Many costs are avoided when both the designer and builder are mutually bound to the successful accomplishment of the project, as the design and budget are developed simultaneously. The design-build team continuously assesses the feasibility and constructability as the design progresses, avoiding the pitfalls of the traditional “design-bid-build” approach in which the builder’s expertise is employed after the design is completed. Thus, many costly revisions are eliminated during construction. Furthermore, with the shorter timelines that are achieved in the design-build approach comes a final tab that's fair for all involved. Design Build construction saves money.
- Because the designer and builder are partners from the conception of the project, the clients’ needs and desires are fully implemented. Design Build allows owners the benefit of selecting systems that best suit their needs and meet their project budget. Design Build gives the owner more say.
It’s easier to manage a Design-Build project because it is structured for optimal efficiency.
