Benefits of Design/Build
Is Design/Build the Right Model for You?
You have three standard options for tackling a major remodeling project:
1-retain-architect-design
2-hire-design-firm
3-hire-contractor

While each of these options presents its own benefits, liabilities and trade-offs, we feel you’re most likely to achieve the best outcome with a Design Build firm assuming that firm has both strong design and construction departments. We believe in having both design and construction under one roof. A design/build model links the planning and execution phases within the umbrella of one firm. With our firm, we have fully-staffed design and construction departments.

We believe in having both design and construction under one roof. A design/build model links the planning and execution phases. A renovation project succeeds or fails in both the planning phase (design) and the execution phase (construction). We see every project as two very integrated opportunities to build your project twice–once on paper, and then in reality. With that in mind, let’s look more in detail at the three models.

We’ve summarized the benefits of the design/build model.
