Why choose the design-build method?

16 September 2020

A construction project, big or small, takes time and a lot of energy. Between your busy work schedule, the soccer games of your children and your daily tasks… will you find the time necessary to choose the materials needed for your project and coordinate separate contracts for the architect, engineers and construction contractors?

In order to simplify your project and avoid unnecessary stress, hire a design build firm. You might be thinking to yourself, ‘’What does design-build mean?’’ Well, let us explain it to you.


What is the design-build method?

Design-build is a project delivery method whereby a single entity, the design build team (architect, designers and general contractor) works together with the project owner under a single contract from start to finish. Responsibility is thus centralized to an adapted and experienced team. This synergy helps reduce unforeseen events and delays during the different construction phases. 

This turnkey service allows better communication and simplifies project management, which makes cost savings possible and reduces the risk of errors. Your entrepreneur thus becomes the point of contact between you and all the other professionals. 

Unlike other construction methods, it is not up to you to manage all contracts with professionals, subcontractors, equipment suppliers and material suppliers. Project coordination is the responsibility of the contractor who takes care of your project.
