Common Questions about Sustainable Design Build and our GC-led 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. All of those services will be managed and run by SDB as the project lead and main point of contact. SDB will also schedule, manage, and perform all construction trades needed to complete the project. The benefit of this is an all-in-one approach allows SDB to leverage their experience of construction through all phases of a project and produce efficiencies in a client’s budget, schedule, and finished product.
The difference SDB makes compared to others is our approach to project design and estimation. We operate with first a design phase that lays out a design tailored to your goals, a detailed and complete scope of work, and a fixed cost for the entire project.
This type of service is especially valuable to clients who are seeking larger construction projects such as home additions, Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), or custom home construction. SDB provides turn-key design and construction services to clients looking to build the home of their dreams.
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 maximizes the value a client receives throughout the entirety of the design and build construction process. By being a “Contractor-led” design-build firm, it makes SDB keenly equipped to provide the most accurate pricing and efficient construction practices. Efficiency in construction gets you back into your home sooner.
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.
Single point of contact. SDB communicates with all trades and disciplines required for construction; architectural, structural, civil, soils, City Officials, Carpenters, etc., so you don’t have to!
