The Truth Behind Design-Build

On October 18, 2011, in General Remodeling, by Justin Bravo

Design-Build Remodeling is a concept developed to benefit the homeowner with his or her remodeling project by providing both quality design and construction services within the same company. A design-build remodeling firm will be able to see your project through from start to finish, keeping design, engineering and budget in mind. The Design-Build Advantage:

  • Imagine the benefits of making a single phone call to a team that can handle your entire construction project.
  • From initial conceptual drawings, budgets, permits, feasibility studies and working drawings to the actual construction and final walk-through, we employ experts in their field to complete each step.
  • Developing the design in-house eliminates time-consuming and costly errors.
  • Detail and investigative work are completed up front, all but eliminating surprises during construction.
  • The timeframe from design to completion is significantly reduced.
  • Most important of all—design-build gives you a single source of accountability.
  • Be aware of Remodelers using “design-build” incorrectly

    Unfortunately a lot of remodelers misuse the term “design-build” and mislead their clients by using “Contract Designers”. These remodelers state that they have interior designers or that they are a design-build remodeler but they use “Contract Designers”. “Contract Designers” are designers that are not actually employees for those remodelers but rather a third-party company also known as a subcontractor.

    Ask any potential remodeler if their interior designer is actually an employee or a subcontractor. The design of your remodeling project is one of the most important aspects to the overall outcome of the finished product. How can you trust a remodeler who claims to be a design-build remodeling company but subcontracts the design portion out?
