Design-Build Construction

In a Design-Build project, Chief Construction serves as the sole contractor for the design and construction of a project. The client works with one contact person who keeps them informed during the entire construction process.

Considerations when using the Design-Build delivery method:

  • Chief Construction oversees the architectural and engineering aspects in the design phase and is the project owner's key contact throughout the duration of the project. This coordination and transparency can help the project stay on schedule and on budget.
  • The design–build project delivery method relies on a single point of responsibility contract and is used to minimize risks for the project owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project.
  • Chief Construction is the single point of contact through the build process and will be responsible for all of the work on the project from conception to completion.
  • Chief Construction collaborates with the owner to determine the construction team based on the most qualified proposal and best value.
  • Chief Construction manages the construction team, keeping the project owner informed throughout all phases of construction.
