What is Design / Build ?
Design/Build is the method of contracting where the owner hires a competent contractor who in turn provides the services
of an architect, structural engineer, mechanical/electrical engineer, civil engineer and any specialty consultants. All design
and construction is handled under one contract. The design team works with the owner from day one to design a building
best suited to the owners needs. The best construction value, most sensible materials and methods and the owners
requirements are all designed into the building project. The result is a building with a realistic budget, little or no change
orders, and the best effective design right from the start.
