Our Basic Services will be customized to meet the needs of each project. These services are based on the architect assuming a traditional role in a construction project. Tasks within each phase of services can be customized to meet a specific project delivery method.
Clients for construction projects are more and more accepting the Design/Build project delivery method. This delivery method is not a new process to the construction industry and has been widely used by the private sector for decades. Because the client and the design-build firm must work very closely together, an essential requirement for this contracting method is a great deal of trust in each other.
This Method provides for a non-adversarial relationship between the contractor and the architect/engineer who both work in a team relationship. It also allows for a early start of some elements of work before design is complete can reduce the project schedule. The owner has better cost control during the design process and result in a final design that assures project delivery within budget constraints from the beginning. There is a single point of responsibility for both design and construction, which should substantially reduce or eliminate claims and disputes for the owner.
