The Design / Build delivery method is a combination of both design, typically provided by an architect or engineer, and construction provided by a general contractor or construction manager. Design / Build is used frequently in speculative real estate development and used by highly sophisticated owners who have the ability to narrowly define scope of project and all the intricate details or performance criteria of the structure.
As a construction firm borne from a professional design firm, Sim Isaac Construction Services is intimately familiar with the Design / Build and “fast track” construction processes and feel comfortable working with this delivery method.
Some of the benefits for Design / Build delivery method to an Owner are:
Owner has single point of contact for design & construction of facility;
Design & construction can be happening concurrently since a single entity is contracted for both design and construction;
Potential savings in construction time and construction financing due to integrated design/construction process.
