Design-Build Model

Definition:

Design-Build is a construction project delivery system where, in contrast to traditional “design-bid-build” systems, all the design and construction services necessary to complete a project are provided by a single entity known as the Design-Builder or Design-Build Contractor.

Origins: 

The design-build delivery system often cites the original “Master Builder” model used to build most pre-modern projects. Under the Master Builder approach, a central figure held total project accountability. From inception to completion, the master builder was the key organizational figure and strictly liable to the owner for defects, delays, and losses. The design-build system is a return to some of the fundamentals of the Master Builder approach.

BVER`S Design – Build Process

Our Design-Build Process allows for full execution of the “team concept”.  BVER works closely with the client to determine the scope of the project, construction methods and the target budget available. Our design-build process works closely with key subcontractors and consultants from conceptual design throughout completion of the construction drawings and specifications. Plans and specifications are reviewed in detail with the key trades to determine actual costs and alternative design and material selections are made early in the process.

Our continuous review of real world costs with our Development, Procurement and Construction divisions assures your project design remains within budget and is completed on time.

When time is of the essence and controlling cost is paramount to the success of the project. We are able to deliver and select the best methods and materials, and ensure that we are on top of any likely varying construction costs.

Benefits:

  1. One stop shopping:  You have a one single Contract to administer with contractor early involvement. The design-builder is solely accountable for the successful design and construction of your building. BVER serves as an extension of your organization, ensuring your building meets your business needs.  Hence minimizing your project risk.

  2. Integrated design:  Design-build provides great design while balancing image, function, quality, sustainability and cost expectations. During design programming, we present design options and together determine your critical project components, avoiding costly backtracking and redesign.

  3. Saving in cost and schedule: You have a better idea of financial outlay earlier in the process

  4. Speed:  The delivery of your project on time is just as important as meeting your design and budget expectations. Scheduling and estimating proceed on a parallel track with design, allowing for a faster, more reliable delivery.
