Design-build in process of construction and planning.

The Role of a Design-Build Firm  

Design-build firms are becoming more and more popular with those looking to construct commercial buildings. If you are looking to have a commercial project designed and built, you may have heard a little bit about these types of firms. Learning more about what their role is and how they can be beneficial to you can help you to see the value in hiring one. Here are a few of the roles that these firms can play in the construction process.

What a Design-Build Firm Does

A design-build firm handles everything in regards to the building. They take the project on its early inception stages and see it through to completion. In most cases, companies hire architects and engineers as part of the team. These firms are able to complete the design process, handle bidding with individual subcontractors, and then oversee the building process. This means that you only work with one firm, rather than multiple firms and companies.

What the Benefits of a Design-Build Firm Are

One of the questions you may have is what the benefits of hiring a design-build firm are. There are many benefits associated with hiring a design-build firm, especially compared to hiring individual companies for every project. It can be time-consuming and tedious to have to research every company you are considering working with and then interviewing them. When you hire a design-build firm, you are working with just one company, which helps to save you time and expedites the entire timeline for the construction of your building.

The other major benefit associated with hiring a design-build firm is the cost-savings. Hiring individual companies can get expensive. When you hire a design-build firm, it is usually cheaper, as they are already familiar with every aspect of your project. Because they don’t have to get up to speed on individual tasks, it takes them less time, which allows them to offer you a better rate. When you want to construct your building with a budget in mind, a design-build firm can help you stick to that budget.

What Types of Projects a Design-Build Firm Can Complete

The final bit of information you may be curious about in regards to a design-build firm is what types of project they can complete. Each and every design-build firm is different. Some specialize in residential projects, some are geared more toward warehouse projects, and others prefer commercial projects, such as schools, hospitals, hotels, and office buildings. Contact various design-build firms to find out what types of projects they specialize in and can assist you with.
