When people talk about advancement in the construction industry, what comes to mind is how technology is being used. But besides that, construction processes are changing too. A design-build approach is a system whereby the design, planning, and construction are under one contract. As long as you have partnered with the right team, you will get everything under one roof instead of finding different contractors for different building components. The Design-Build approach can’t be just one person. It doesn’t matter how great a super star you are, you can’t win the championship game without your teammates. It’s the same with Design-Build, you can’t complete any quality project on time or within budget without your team.Here are a few advantages of this approach.
One of the challenges of construction is being able to stay within the timeline. With a design-build approach, multiple things are being managed at the same time. All important stakeholders are involved from the beginning, meaning even when the owner makes a few adjustments in the construction, those changes can be made without wasting time.
For a project to be successful, it needs transparency. This is something that Bomar Construction insists on. The good thing about a design-build approach is that it promotes transparent communication. The team has to communicate with each other to be on the same page.
Saves On Cost
Another advantage of this approach is that it allows you to stay within your budget or even save you money. No one will ask you for additional fees for certain professionals. Once the price has been determined in the design stage, the team works to ensure they stick to that budget.
When you work with one team, you can account for all aspects of the project from the start. This includes construction costs, labor fees, landscaping, utilities, and any other construction-related costs. Even when a contractor gives the owners the quotation, there is a low chance that there will be shortages later on.
You pick teammates you know you can collaborate with, trust, lean on for support and ultimately win the game with. Design-Build has many advantages to ensuring a successful completed project when working together.
If you are about to start a construction project, consider this approach instead of the traditional one. Not only will it save you time and money, but there is a low risk of things not going according to plan.
