Design/ Build
Similar to CM, but with a single source of responsibility.
The client contracts with the Design/ Builder very early in the process and the Design/Builder manages all aspects of Design and Construction.

– The Design Professionals work directly for the Construction Firm (Design/ Builder)

– Utilize the “hands on experience” of field and office personnel to eliminate or minimize design problems

– Done properly, the Design/ Build process eliminates the potential “finger-pointing” – the Design/ Builder cannot shift blame to another party

– Done properly, the D/B process can cut months off a total project design and construction schedule

Project Examples:
Dutchess Beer Distributors ($3.2 Mill – 6 months)
Monticello Paddock ($1.1 Mill – 4 months)
FEDEX Freight ($5 Mill - 6 months)
