Design/Build is a method we use when a client wishes to have one single point of contact for a project. In contrast to the traditional approach where there is separate contract with the architect, designer and contractor, this simplified approach, with one point of contact, allows us to reduce costs and often delivery time. Since there are not as many parties involved, we can offer a more organic approach to the work, changes and alterations to the original plan are easily adopted and included in the scope. This method not only saves time and money, but it also transforms the relationship between architects, designers and builders into an alliance that fosters collaboration and teamwork. Integrated in this way, we can be more efficient and innovative. Over the past 10 years , use of Design/Build has greatly increased in the United States, making this delivery method one of the most significant trends in design and construction today.
