Design Build is a project delivery system in which the design and the construction services are contracted by a single entity. This process provides many advantages over traditional a design-bid-build system. The traditional system consists of an appointed designer on one side and the appointed contractor on the other. The Design Build process changes the traditional flow of work; it answers the client’s wishes by providing a single-point of contact in an attempt to lower risk and overall costs.
IC Mechanical uses a Design Build system by employing professionals from both the design and the construction sector. Our partnerships provide a long term solution for Design Build needs, rather than a one project only partnership.
Design Build firms provide many advantages including:
Everyone is working together and has the same goal; meeting the clients expectations.
One entity is responsible and accountable for everything removing intermediaries including costs, timelines and professionalism.
Professionals with expertise in both fields provide a complete view of the project and increased collaboration.
Faster project completion, bid time is reduced, scheduling time is reduced and potential problems can be discovered early.
Flexibility allows design build firms to complete a variety of projects with various complexities.
These advantages are just a few provided by using a Design Build firm for your project. With our strategic partnerships we continue to provide these advantages to our client base. Contact us today to see where our Design Build capabilities can enhance your projects.
