Design-build is the service of designing and constructing a building all under one contractor. This means that the designer and contractor will work together as a team to plan and build a project instead of working separately.
What has once considered an alternative construction method is now more normalized and used more frequently. This method saves time by not having to regroup and catch everyone up on any changes. Instead, the team is constantly collaborating the entire time, so nothing is left unaccounted for.
The design-build services at Armada Hoffler provide our clients with an integrated approach to construction using a collaborative team environment with a focus on the specific needs of each project. Design-build offers operational advantages such as the ability to fast-track work based on the close, contractual relationship between the designer and the builder. Clients who take advantage of this turnkey solution also benefit from costs being minimized, schedules streamlined and efficiencies realized without sacrificing quality or performance. Other benefits include enhanced client control, value engineering, and reduced client risk.
