DESIGN-BUILD

When an owner contracts directly with a single entity to perform design and construction, it is known as a 'design-build'. It is a great approach for clients who know what they want up front, because it streamlines delivery. Design-build simplifies procurement of design and construction services, offering customers the convenience of dealing with a single point of contact.

It is key for us to work closely with the architect. Using a well experienced architect not only provides the owner with a creative concept based on their requirement but specific zoning or design requirements are also addressed upfront.

Projects are often awarded to design-build teams who compete on design, qualifications and price. The owner's request for services may contain either reasonably solid design criteria or preliminary sketches only. In the latter case, Gottardo Construction would retain our own architect to advance the design proposal. Price is fixed early in the process, although the owner may negotiate the price until design is finalized by the winning contender.

With this approach, we are responsible for all phases of the building process. In fact, Gottardo Construction is 100% responsible for building performance and materials long after the project close-out. This advantage provides the owner with added security when embarking on a design-build contract.
