Custom House

What is Design+Build?

As a Design and Build home builder, we use a process that is different than how most custom homes are designed and built. Conventionally, a client would hire an Architect or Designer to produce the construction drawings. Those drawings would then get handed out to potential General Contractors to bid the project. While this process works well, Design Build offers an alternative to help solve some of the inefficiencies and problems of the conventional design, bid, build model.  Design Build puts both the Designer and the General Contractor on the same team from the beginning of the process. This approach allows for greater collaboration between the design and construction teams, resulting in improved communication, cost savings, and schedule efficiencies.

Design and Build home builders are responsible for all aspects of the project, including design, permitting, and construction, which helps to streamline the entire process. This method offers more flexibility than traditional design bid build as the owner can make design changes and construction decisions while the project progresses. We see overall cost reductions and schedule reductions by using Design Build. A major benefit of this process is that we can also provide cost estimates and constructability input during the design phase, which can help the owner make informed decisions about the project.
