“One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion. Design-build is also known as design/construct and single-source responsibility.”

What is Design & Build?

A design-build company combines the roles of designer and builder in a single entity, streamlining the construction process by providing both design and implementation services under a single point of contact. This allows owners to avoid the need to act as a mediator between separate design and construction teams.

Why Design & build?

  • Faster Timeline
  • Consistent Budget
  • Quality of Work
  • Streamlined Communication
  • Owner Reduced Risk

Design & build projects offer a faster timeline because the design and construction phases are completed concurrently rather than sequentially. This can also lead to a more consistent budget as the cost of design changes is minimized. The quality of work may also be improved due to the integrated nature of the design & build team and the streamlined communication between team members. Additionally, the owner’s risk is reduced as the design-build company takes on more responsibility for the project.

Design & Build Process

  • Initial meeting to learn about project scope. Studiokimi will provide an estimate for design and construction
  • Review design & build estimate (proposal) and entre the design phase
  • Once the design and all material selection is finalized Studiokimi will provide fixed construction cost and schedule
  • Begin construction

The design-build process involves a single entity providing both design and construction services for a project. This entity, often referred to as the design-build firm, manages all aspects of the project from conception to completion.

In the initial phase of the process, the design-build firm works with the owner to understand their needs and goals for the project. The firm then develops a design for the project and obtains any necessary permits and approvals.

Once the design is finalized and approved, the design-build firm begins the construction phase of the project. The firm is responsible for procuring materials, hiring subcontractors, and overseeing the overall construction process.

Throughout the project, the design-build firm acts as a single point of contact for the owner, coordinating all aspects of the project and ensuring that it is completed on time and within budget.

Overall, the design-build process offers a more streamlined and efficient alternative to the traditional design-bid-build process, in which the design and construction phases are completed by separate entities.
