WHAT IS DESIGN - BUILD AND WHY SHOULDN'T I JUST HIRE A GENERAL CONTRACTOR?
We're sure this is your first question! It is a completely relevant question too.
The design - build construction model makes one entity entirely responsible to the client for the translation of their dreams into a built project. Sounds good right?
We really do think it is the most responsible practice. Here is why -
The design team collects data from you about your hopes and dreams for the project, and instead of moving forward, spending a large amount of time developing your dream on paper only to have it bid by outside contractors and then need to spend time revising your dream to accurately reflect your budget, the in the design - build model the team works directly with the construction team from the beginning. This allows us to give you the best advice about how to use your budget and removes as much stress for an admittedly stressful process as possible. We provide updated budget estimates at each of the design benchmark meetings to help us all find the right solution to your goals.
