We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to serve our clients and to provide our services in the best way possible. One of the project delivery methods we use to meet deadlines and high demands for our clients is the use of the “Design-Build” approach. It allows for appropriate build times and lets our clients know exactly when their projects will be completed.
Tried & True Method
Over the last decade, the public procurement profession has seen greater use of alternative delivery methods of construction projects, including design-build, construction manager at risk (GC/CM or CM/GC), public-private partnerships (P3), and job order contracting. The traditional method of soliciting and contracting, design-bid-build, is still the most widely used method of construction contracting. It has been the mainstay of government construction contracting for well over 60 years.
Start Your Construction Project
During the construction bidding process, the contractor is selected based on qualifications, capabilities, experience, and price, thus avoiding some of the pitfalls of contract awards solely based on low prices. The design and construction are performed by a single team, under one contract. This reduces the owner’s risk from diffused responsibility for design and construction. Time can be saved because the ordering of materials and site work begins before the total design is complete.
This method of project delivery is one in which one entity – the Re Smith design-build team.
On-Time Projects with One Team
The design-build contractors work under a single contract with the project owner in order to provide effective and efficient design and construction services. This allows one entity to work on one contract in one unified flow of work from the initial concept all the way through to completion. This effectively then re-integrates the roles of designers and contractors. A design-build contractor model is an effective alternative to the traditional design-bid-build project delivery method and one we use to speed up build times on each project.
The design-build approach is good for our building team, but also great for you as our client as well! The design-build approach reduces errors, leads to faster project delivery, keeps your costs as low as possible, and allows for a greater degree of customization for your build.
Having a diverse build team with a wide range of experience and expertise enables us to better serve our client’s needs and to better deliver the customer-focused quality you’ve come to know and expect from RE Smith Construction.
