Design Build

Construction Management

Design-Build is superior to the traditional Design-Bid-Build process because the entire process from design to permitting to construction is coordinated and managed by one organization.

The Buildings Unlimited Design-Build team oversees this process while working one-on-one with the owner. Consistent builder-owner communication contributes to a thorough understanding of the owner’s mission, project, construction needs and performance goals.

Advantages of Design-Build Construction:

  • Single point of contact
  • Single source of responsibility
  • Single source of project deliver
  • Time efficiencies due to the single source model
  • Cost efficiencies due to the single source model
  • Increased accountability
  • Flexibility in dealing with changes
  • Efficient project feedback system
  • More accurate communication
  • Less paperwork

Time and Cost Efficiencies
There is a natural savings in time and money due to design-build’s streamlined process. It is less bureaucratic, requires less paperwork due to the single point of contact and increases the accuracy of the communication flow.

Single Source, Plus Flexibility
In a typical design-build project with Buildings Unlimited, we are the owner’s single source of responsibility and delivery for the duration of the project.

Budgeting, planning, design and revision, feedback, permitting, construction issues, change orders, and billing all go through Buildings Unlimited.

This single point of contact means a more flexible process. Based on the owner’s wishes, Buildings Unlimited can refine or make changes to the project, creating more value.

Buildings Unlimited design-build services increase accountability by allowing the owner to deal with only one entity if he or she has questions or concerns. In the event of a problem, the Buildings Unlimited team can easily identify and resolve the issue.

Efficient Project Feedback
As the project moves forward, there is an emphasis on feedback in order to ensure that aesthetics, performance, materials and labor are where they should be in the process. At any time the owner may contact Buildings Unlimited to express concern, ask questions or discuss a change.
