Why Design-Build

One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work, from initial concept through completion.

One of the primary reasons to choose Design-Build over the traditional construction project delivery is to shorten the length of time for a project. The enhanced coordination of design and construction methods, the coordination of MEP, collaboration between consultants can be a great source of streamlining a project in the field as well as on the drawing table.

But Design-Build is not simply overlapping construction activities. It is early design collaboration efforts and a single source of responsibility for the client. The team is on the same page at the beginning and throughout the entire process. At the outset, comprehensive understanding of the design, clear, proactive sequencing in procurement and in construction field operations yields a project with fewer surprises and fewer coordination issues.

Design-Build project methodology is seeing a resurgence in the marketplace on projects that are suited to this type of delivery.  Broadmoor has been providing Design-Build services for many years and is please to see this building delivery method grow in popularity throughout the industry.
