Design-Build (D-B) is a project delivery system that includes planning, design and construction under one contract. Design and Build is the idea of partnering the right team, from the start, to help get to a completed project successfully and provide the highest satisfaction to the client/owner.  

Basically it’s like putting together any sports team. You pick teammates you know you can collaborate with, trust, lean on for support and ultimately win the game with. Design-Build has many advantages to ensuring a successful completed project when working together as a team. 

There are three distinctive characteristics in the Design-Build approach, starting with communicating instantaneously. Being able to communicate instantaneously speeds the whole process which improves your project schedule. Secondly, you can conduct the business without boundaries; you have no physical or geographical boundaries getting in the way of your timeline, and thirdly, the production of customised products. Design-Build gives the builder the ability to quickly produce products that are custom and not your prototypical replications.

Design and build gives a single point of responsibility for delivering the entire project, and can help ensure good buildability, cost control and speed. The scale and complexity of design and build projects can vary considerably, but the Design-Build contract is generally suitable for projects where a detailed agreement is required, making provision for collaborative working, sustainability, advance payment, third party rights, bonds, collateral warranties and so on.

Well-suited for fast-track construction, design/build projects are often more cost-effective and less susceptible to delays in the work than traditional projects. Perhaps the greatest advantage for the owner is that the owner only has to look to one party for the design and the construction, so for more information on house and land packages Hamilton, Hamilton home builders and design builders Hamilton please go to .
