What Is Design-Build?

Design-Build is a collaborative approach to building homes. The process combines the design and construction stages into one contract.

This eliminates the need for multiple contracts between the homeowner, architect, designers, contractor, and subcontractors.

Design-Build vs. Design Bid Build

During the Design-Build process, a single contractor is responsible for both the build and design aspects of a project. One contractor works directly with the client from the beginning stages of the project all the way to the end. Design-Build services improve communication and eliminate the stress of managing budgets for multiple contractors and subcontractors.

The design-bid process involves a clear separation between the build and design phases. Initially, homeowners hire a design team to develop architectural plans and specifications. Once the design is complete, the bidding process begins. Different contractors submit their bids for the construction work and the homeowner chooses a contractor based on their bid price and qualifications.
