There are so many decisions to make when building a new home or remodeling your existing residence. But, the smartest one you can make is choosing a design-builder that will make your project run smoothly and allow you to actually enjoy the process!
Design-builders give you the advantages of working with a fully integrated team for a more seamless experience. Read on to learn why design-build can help you avoid unnecessary stress, delays, and added costs on your path to creating your dream home.
Traditional builds, also known as design-bid-builds, involve different contactors handling each part of the process. A design-build company, on the other hand, is just what it sounds like in that one firm manages the project design and construction of a residential property project. Scheduling, costs, and results are all handled under one contract, creating more convenience. Think of them as your “one-stop-shop” for getting everything you need to complete a project.
A design-builder offers unique expertise as its team has experience in both the design and construction processes. They know what has to be done and can competently problem-solve if any unforeseen circumstances arise. Engaging the services of a design-build company also allows for a more efficient experience in the following ways.
With a design-builder, homeowners are offered a more customizable design experience. You can communicate your ideas and collaborate with the design and construction teams to achieve the specific goals you have for your home. There’s no need for a cookie-cutter design (unless that’s what you want, of course).
With the traditional method of using different companies for each phase of your build, there are more opportunities for frustrating miscommunication. On the other hand, a design-builder provides a single point of contact for your construction project. All services are handled in-house, so potential issues can be identified and addressed as soon as they arise, and conflict resolution can be reached more effectively.
Having the entire project team in one company ensures that all parties are on the same page about the owner’s vision and what needs to be done to make it happen. One company is accountable and takes ownership over the project, eliminating the risk that conflicts of interest will detail your project. Instead, work is done more efficiently, and the risk of information being lost in translation is mitigated. You are guaranteed the same level of quality at each phase of the project.
Design-build projects take less time due to the reduced amount of time it takes to get bids done. Another benefit is that multiple tasks can be completed simultaneously, such as design and scheduling. A design-builder team is adept at coordinating multiple timelines and workflows, making it easier for projects to stay on schedule even with all of the different moving parts and deadlines.
Not having to pay additional contractors for each phase of the build process can lead to more money left in your pocket. That is because a design-builder can guide the owner through the design process adhering to their budget and better control the project’s cost along the way.
