Design-Build Tumwater by Kaufman Construction & Development

A Quality Design-Build Firm With Proven Results.

Kaufman Construction & Development has enough experience in the property development industry to know when time or resources are being wasted. This is why we offer the design-build option. This process eliminates unnecessary gaps in communication by establishing close connections between teams of designers, architects, and contractors. It also improves the construction and design delivery process by significantly reducing waste. The design-build option expedites operations overall — meaning that your project has a higher chance of being completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

Not all contractors offer single-entity pre-construction methods that deliver superior results.

  • Delivery speed increases


Design-build versus design-bid-build

The design-bid-build is the traditional method of construction, and though it has its own benefits, the design-build option is significant because it offers solutions for business owners with the right resources but a smaller window of time. Other methods of construction delivery split the teams of contractors, designers, and architects so multiple contracts have to be managed. In addition, change orders occur more frequently because the collaborative element is missing. According to the Design-Build Institute of America, the design-build method increases delivery speed by 33.3 percent and reduces cost growth by 5.2 percent.

Further distinguishing the design-build option is the creation of a single contract, thus a single source of responsibility. With the designer and constructor integrated, the flow of work is more unified, meaning fewer changes and disputes. In other forms of construction delivery, the business owner can get caught in between disagreements between the separate teams.
