The Benefits of Design and Build Construction Design and build projects are used when clients want to save time by having the construction and design coordinated and managed efficiently. Following are some benefits of this kind of construction method.
The design and build approach utilises a single contract for both architecture, engineering and construction responsibilities. The design and build approach strengthens the owner’s control of the process because they have one point of contact throughout the project. Financial risk is minimised because one partner is solely responsible for the success of the project.
With design and construction being handled by one organisation, there is a single point – and perhaps, standard – for project quality, costing and timeline. The client is better able to focus on decision-making instead of coordinating with architects, builders, engineers, councils, consultants and project managers.
As the design-build team works closely with their client, it can conceptualise the completed project in its planning stages. Continuous and concurrent estimation is reduced. As a result, the design and build team is better able to create a more accurate quote and cost breakdown early in the project, before significant investment is made.
Collaboration between designers and builders is the foundation of the design-and-build model. Everyone’s input is needed and valued in the design and construction process to meet the client’s goals. Part of the responsibility of the design and build team is to meet the business leaders, department and faculty managers to discuss plans and make recommendations.
Better Communication Lines
In the design-and-build method, specific design and construction details are developed throughout the process, keeping the focus on the client’s expectations instead of traditional finger-pointing between the architect, contractor and engineer. Working with a design professional and a construction expert at the same time helps keep communication lines open and makes sure potential problems are addressed before the project commences.
The design and build method helps promote transparency in the process of material and construction specifications. Since the designer, builder and engineer are part of the same organisation, they focus on protecting their client’s interests.
With design and build, the owner’s requirements and expectations are expressed through specific performance terms, and the design-builder is responsible for producing quality results.
Faster Turnover Time
Design and build projects are completed much faster than usual projects. Bidding time is minimised, project scheduling can commence early, and potential problems are detected sooner.
