The design-build construction system is a contracting method that is gaining popularity, as it can provide significant cost and time savings for owners. Whereas the traditional design-bid-build process separates design and construction, design-build provides a single point of responsibility for an entire construction project. Instead of the owner contracting separately with the architect and the contractor, design-build typically ties the architect contractually to the contractor. The contractor then enters into a design-build contract with the owner. The owner now only has to deal with one entity—the design-build team—and not each one separately.
At Navalis Construction, we select an architect/engineer for a specific project and place him/her under contract as part of our design-build team. We then work with the owner to plan, design and construct the project to meet the specific goals, constraints and demands of the project.
