In the design/build approach to project delivery, the owner contracts with a single entity – the designer/builder – for project planning, design, budgeting, scheduling, and construction. The design/build entity can be led by either an architect or a general contractor and can consist of any number of people. By creating a team approach with owner, architect, and builder, design/build is a cost-effective construction method that reduces upfront costs and generates earlier project completion.
Owners interested in a single point of responsibility for both design and construction can use South Coast’s design/build delivery system to foster better communication, reduce adversarial roles between design and construction, and accelerate project delivery. Our design/build approach relies on years of experience in delivering projects on time and on budget.
