Design Build — Building on Your Idea for a Successful Project
Using a design build delivery approach, many owners call on Raymond Construction to be the “single source” or point person in overseeing the delivery of complete achitectural/engineering design and construction services. Working with a negotiated contract, our construction team participates in the planning process along with the design team much earlier than what a competitive bid process allows.
Based on our experience, preliminary design using construction knowledge up front can take your conceptual sketch or idea to completion faster and at a dramatic savings in cost.
A design build process provides owners with the following benefits:
- everyone involved is working as an effective team from the start
- improves quality control
- develops more accurate initial budget costs and schedules
- provides an opportunity for early implementation of cost savings ideas
- reduces hidden costs and the number of change orders
- reduces the amount of time required to design and build a project
- provides clear definitions of project requirements early on
- facility requirements defined in performance terms offers flexibility
Much of the work delivered by Raymond Construction is negotiated using this design build approach.
