Design Build vs. Architect/GC Format

In our Design/Build format, we co-ordinate simultaneous design, approvals, engineering and selections instead of the traditional method of one task following the next.   The result is a significant schedule benefit to the Owner, a savings of up to half a year.     Many design and construction firms talk about schedules, we actually use schedules to co-ordinate the design and construction process. 

Architect / GC Format

In the traditional format the schedule looks like this:

  1. Subdivision approvals
  2. Building & Architectural design and specifications
  3. Site engineering for building
  4. This is a series of tasks, one after the other.

Design Build Format

In our Design Build format, we are able to put the various tasks on PARALLEL tracks simultaneously.   The occupancy date is up to half a year sooner, a great benefit to the owner.
