Design-Build is another popular contracting method that can provide significant cost and time savings for owners. While the traditional Design-Bid-Build process separates design and construction, Design-Build provides a single point of responsibility for an entire project. Instead of the owner contracting separately with the architect and the contractor, Design-Build typically ties the architect contractually to the contractor. The contractor then enters into a Design-Build agreement with the owner.
With this delivery method, the Contractor assumes the responsibility for the design, permitting, code compliance and construction of the project.
Benefits of Design-Build include:
· One point of responsibility
· Enhanced communication between contractor and design professionals
· Integrated coordination of design and construction efforts
· Greater control of budget and schedule
