What Are Design-Build Construction Services?
Design-build services and construction have rapidly grown into the size and are becoming a more precise option for project delivery. For the project owner, this precision or accuracy becomes a single contact point which makes the service provider be responsible for accurately delivering the project as per the set schedule, allocated budget and performance benchmarks.
The robust planning, constructability assessment, and cost estimation prove to be a solid platform and guide the design engineers from the concept to the construction documents. The best part of this way of project management is that all stakeholders work as one unit. These stakeholders include the likes of the project owner, the service provider, architect, builder, and engineer along with all other project consultants. This ensures that all team members work collectively to achieve the same goals and objectives which will result in the successful completion of a project.
How Does Design-Build Work?
In this project delivery technique of design-build, as a project owner, you will only have to work with one party and that is your design-build service provider. This service provider will be responsible for every component associated with the planning of design as well as construction phases. The process of design-build is very different from the conventional design-bid-build construction model. Due to the fast and effective delivery method, modern design-build is among the fastest growing techniques in the field of construction.
The conventional design-bid-build technique places the project’s responsibility into the hands of the owner. For this reason, they will have to collaborate and work with the design consultants and develop the front-end of a project. They will also have to work on putting the project on bid and hope for the construction industry to respond to the design favorably. As this is a traditional technique, it often creates relationships based on competition and promotes that non-productive finger pointing behavior. The reason is that the design contractors and consultants aren’t directly responsible for the work that the other party has completed and delivered. In such a scenario, the team responsible for design might blame your contractor for overrunning of budget and your contractor might blame the poor design efforts for all current change orders. This is not the case in design-build construction because in this method all responsibility for contract and design as well as construction falls on a single entity and that is your design-build contractor.
How Can You Choose Your Design-Builder?
As a project owner, you will have to deal with your project from ground zero. There is no existing design for the project but the variables associated with the design since the project’s design scope, are there. Hence, it’s critical to select the firm for design-build while heavily relying on experience as well as track-record. The expertise and the skill set of the entire team also matters a lot in this regard.
It’s very important to develop a contract having GMP or guaranteed maximum price with a split for savings between the owner and the contractor. With this contracting technique, your design-builder will enjoy the incentive from the contract for controlling the costs as much as possible.
During the research process, your design-builder will ask regarding your experience associated with value engineering and pre-construction planning. Most of the general contractors say that they do understand the whole idea and concept of design-build and its project delivery technique but they don’t have the expertise to deliver it successfully.
Why Do You Need the Same Contractor For Design and Build Services?
Most of the general contractors heavily rely on their subcontractors or the specialized trade market for the purpose of assessing costs and performing constructability evaluations. For instance, the contractor will ask for assistance from the concrete contractor for reviewing the designs and costs linked with the project’s base of the deck. In the methodology of design-build, the initial design stages don’t provide enough details for reviewing the subcontractors. On the other hand, the subcontractors will also not put any energy within the evaluation as the project is still a bit far from being placed as a contract.
For this reason, the design-builder must have a very strong background when it comes to constructability reviews along with cost estimating. The design-builder must be able to see the project through the level of construction document, and must also have experience in the phase of pre-construction planning.
As progress happens in the design process, your design-builder must keep a close eye on the project’s budget and must also make various decisions associated with value engineering for ensuring that the budget doesn’t go off the track. Therefore, the design-builder should be well-versed with the design plan that the design team has to show and must also understand what is necessary for the completion of the project.
Perks of Getting a Design-Build Services from NYE
With this technique, the service provider can perform both engineering and architectural design with the construction work. This system has numerous advantages especially over the conventional contracting technique which is design-bid-build. In this technique, the project owner has to commission an engineer or architect for the preparation of specifications and drawings. The owner will also separately select a contractor while negotiating or using competitive bidding. On the other hand, the design-build technique provides a number of advantages which we have listed as follows:
