With HCI Construction as your design/builder, your in-house administrative burden is lessened, reducing the time and cost that is allocated in the typical design-bid-construct process. Design-Build is a project delivery strategy that brings designers and contractors together early in the detail design portion of a project. The client clearly defines the standards and general specifications they expect for a project, and the Design-Build team works together to satisfy those requirements.
Design-Build offers many potential advantages over traditional design-bid-build project delivery methods. Because the team works together, they are able to develop innovative and efficient solutions to meet the owner's expectations. These advantages include a single source of responsibility and a single point of contact; engineers and contractors work together as a team, which results in a more cost-effective approach. In addition, Design-Build can shorten the project schedule and reduce the number of change orders.
The Design-Build process differs from the traditional method by overlapping design and construction, allowing construction to begin after a portion of the design has been completed. This process results in greater innovation and flexibility in the selection of design, materials, and construction methods because of collaboration between the designers and contractors.
HCI Construction works closely with local Engineers to ensure that all construction requirements are met. We have established relationships with local and area designers to help you visualize your project.
