Design & Build has come into its own this last decade as more and more projects head towards this inclusive method of construction. In a recent study in the US, Design & Build (D&B) projects superseded in number as compared to the traditional method, design, bid, build. Regionally, it appears D&B is also gaining traction, particularly in smaller scale projects with a tighter budget and timeline.
So Love That Design aimed their last focus group of 2021 at the major players in this field in the region to learn all about the processes involved in the completion of a design and build project vs the traditional method – the design, benefits and headaches, product sourcing, value engineering, tight timelines, and any challenges involved in following sustainability goals and certifications. An honest and open conversation ensued where we learned about what actually happens from the moment the client sits at the table. In this research led piece, we get to highlight the details, the differences and intricacies, and bring it to the masses.
