Design-build is a project delivery method that provides homeowners with a single contract – and a sole point of contact – for both the design and construction phases of a home remodeling project. Design-build firms take on the contractual risk and responsibility for every aspect of a remodel – from conception to completion.
By contrast, the design-bid-build system for project delivery requires homeowners to juggle two separate contracts – one for design and another for construction. As a result of managing multiple vendors, many homeowners endure project delays, disputes resulting in finger-pointing, financial loss, and low quality finished products.
The design-build delivery system helps homeowners to minimize those risks while providing superior results.
