Design-Build (DB)

Our collaborative design-build delivery method combines architectural and engineering design services with construction performance as one team under one contract. Our fully-integrated design-build teams lead the process from initial planning sessions through project completion. This approach offers a single source of communication for the owner and streamlines the entire design and build process. It also allows for flexibility in overlapping phases of the project for a reduced schedule and greater overall value.
