Common Questions about the design build process.
What is a GC-Led Design-Build Firm?
A GC-Led Design-Build Firm is an organization that offers both the design and construction services required for building residential or commercial projects. The Design services offered include architectural, structural, civil engineering, soil, and other required disciplines. From construction, SDB will schedule, manage, and perform all trades needed to complete the project. The benefit of this all-in-one approach allows established relationships and processes to produce efficiencies in a client’s budget, schedule, and finished product.
The difference SDB makes compared to others is our approach to a project’s budget throughout all phases. We operate with a budget-first outlook that is guided by our experience, giving us more insight into design choices and material selections that can easily overspend a budget. If you are considering a design-build firm for your project please reach out to us to learn about the SDB difference.
Is Design-Build more expensive than a General Contractor?
No, the design-build process is laid out to produce efficiencies where traditional construction methods lack, this in turn can help clients save more money on their project! The key is having SDB bridge the gap between the design phase and the construction phase of the project. Even more, SDB is a “Contractor-led” design-build firm unlike other competitors who are “architect-led”. This means that the leaders and project managers of SDB are experienced in actual construction which lends a pragmatic foresight on certain design requirements.
What are the benefits of the Design-Build Process?
The design-build process is a unifying method of construction that is led under a single point of contact, Much like a general contractor. However, the design-build company offers much more by being a part of the design process of a project. This lends conscious decisions in the design of the project which will help align client goals later on down the road.
Single point of contact. Communicates with all trades and disciplines required for construction; architectural, structural, civil, soils, City Officials, Carpenters, etc.
Client-Conscious Design Choices
Can help clients identify cost savings in certain areas of their project where others would offer the more expensive or lengthy options.
Faster Project Completion
Experience in actual construction helps speed the process up through all phases of the project. Can make choices about time-saving designs, and can save money on material options that perform better and more cost-effectively.
What is a Contractor-Led Design-Build?
The design-build process is a streamlined construction method where architects and designers collaborate directly with contractors who perform construction. While beneficial, traditional companies that factor design build aspects from an architectural and design perspective operate at a disadvantage to the client. They might be unaware that those choices, while good on paper, will take too long to build or may even cost more. Sustainable Design Build is a Contractor-led Design-Build Firm, which means the people who are performing the construction of the project are present during the design phase. Our seasoned experience and knowledge in construction will guarantee the most efficient and cost-effective design and build.
