Design Build

Here at JB STEEL™, we believe a construction project succeeds when all of the right stakeholders are collaborating together from the beginning and all the way to the end. That means inviting everyone including our designers, estimators, project managers, field managers, trusted trade partners, etc. to the table to foster buy-in, creativity, effectiveness to meet or exceed our customer’s needs throughout the project. This type of project delivery allows us to work with our customers from the very beginning to listen and understand the intent of the project. Throughout the process we have the ability to quickly and easily tweak or adjust according to what the customer wants, opposed to a more traditional Design-Bid-Build delivery method.

What is Design-Build Contracting?

Design-Build is a construction delivery method where the Design-Build Team works under a single contract with the Owner to provide Design and Construction Services. Design-Build teams work together from the project's inception through completion, providing a collaborative approach that has been shown to save time and money when compared to traditional Design-Bid-Build methods. In addition, Design-Build contracts often lead to better communication and coordination between the designers, contractors, and subcontractors, resulting in a more efficient construction process.

Is Design-Build Less Expensive?

With No 3rd parties and a smoother process, design-build can save time and money on large construction projects.

Better Coordination

With design-build contracting, the same company is responsible for both the design and construction of a project. This allows for better coordination than compared to a traditional design bid build project delivery method.

Faster, More Accurate, Design Process

With design-build you have a pre-construction team that includes a project manager and super intendant who are performing constructability reviews much earlier in the process overall creating a more efficient project.

Faster Build Time

Design-build contractors can often complete projects faster than traditional project delivery methods which will save on all overhead expenses associated with the project.

The Pre-Construction Process And Benefits

The pre-construction process is an important part of any project, large or small. It traditionally includes activities such as creating the plans and specifications for the project, verifying that it meets local laws and regulations, performing a cost-analysis, and providing insight into potential risks involved with getting the project completed. Pre-construction is where teams formulate a clear plan on how they can efficiently complete the job while complying with all requirements to avoid costly problems or delays once construction begins. Many times prior to starting construction, teams will go through revisions in order to double-check that everything is on track before taking the next step forward. Without a thorough pre-construction phase, there would be no assurance that everything has been accounted for ahead of time and projects may suffer from inefficiency or incorrect budgeting due to unexpected issues down the line.
