The Design-Build System
Kaufman Construction & Development uses an integrated system called design-build, which is a method of construction that aligns the design-build team and Lacey project owners under a single contract. This keeps the flow of concept to completion more united, and the roles of designer and constructor better unified.
Before making a final decision on a building process, business owners should consider the consequences and benefits of each type. There are a few basic avenues an owner can choose when embarking on a commercial construction delivery method, including design-bid-build and construction management at risk.
In order to make a sound decision that minimizes risks across the board, owners must consider several important factors such as:
- Level of owner control
- A quality and responsive design process
- Risk assessment
What are the design-build advantages?
The Design-build construction process is superior to the more traditional project delivery of “design-bid-build” because it keeps otherwise separate entities together. This is especially beneficial to the owner because instead of managing two contracts, they can manage just one – the designer/contractor “design-build entity.
As a design-build company, we offer the lowest cost, most efficient contract option available in the industry.
This method streamlines the process by creating an alliance between designers and building contractors for projects in Lacey. The benefits of design-build versus traditional systems include:
- Collaborative, productive teamwork
- Fast results
- Cost-effective projects
- Fewer changes during the process
- Unit costs stay low
- Construction speed increases
- Delivery speed increases
According to the Design-Build Institute of America, “Over the past few decades, use of design-build in both private and public sectors has greatly accelerated in the United States, making design-build one of the most significant trends in design and construction today.”
