“..white lace and promises, a kiss for luck, and we’re on our way”. Yes, that is the opening lyrics by Carpenters, but what a common association when most people hear the word DESIGN-BUILD. If done correctly, Design-Build can be all sunshine and rainbows; however, We’ve Only Just Begun!
DBIA forecasted that by 2025 design-build is anticipated to represent up to 47% of construction spending. The Douglas Company has found that our successful design-build projects have three common factors:
- Early Involvement with The Douglas Company
- Clear Definition of Expectations
- Alignment between Owner and Design-Build Team
These factors are critical to a clean, fast-paced process. Our ability to influence the project’s design is most appreciated and provides the best value to the owner prior to construction and issuance of subcontracts and purchase orders. The industry’s increased project complexity and fast-paced schedule demands align best with the benefits provided by our design-build teams. Utilizing design-build also creates a greater team collaboration effort which results in a higher quality end product.
At The Douglas Company, our preconstruction and construction teams will help one “start out walkin’ and learn to run.”
