Design & Build

DESIGN & BUILD

You might say it’s a simple approach to construction. A team, working together from start to finish in open communication and purposeful collaboration to deliver otherwise unachievable results.

It’s the notion that when owners sit at the same table with architects and builders, engineers and estimators, great ideas — the best ideas — are born.

And the way is paved for creative solutions to take hold, resulting in costs minimized, schedules streamlined and efficiencies realized.

 

What is Design-Build?Design & Build

Implementation of construction projects under the scheme "Design & Build" is a project implementation system used in the construction industry in which both design and construction is carried out by one organization.

With this approach, the entire responsibility under the contract is assigned to one company, thus minimizing the risks for the investor-customer and reducing the delivery time due to the simultaneous implementation of design, production, delivery and installation of the building.

By concentrating full responsibility on one person, the "Design & Build" scheme provides the client with transparent contractual terms, obligates the contractor to bear full responsibility for the project, regardless of the nature of the detected malfunctions.

Traditionally, the construction project is assigned to the designer on the one hand and the contractor on the other. The way of project implementation under the "Design & Build" changes the traditional sequence of works. It corresponds to the client's natural desire to assign full responsibility to one organization in order to minimize potential risks and overall costs.

 

Principles of the Design & Build

Design & Build

Implementation of construction projects under the scheme "Design & Build" is a project implementation system used in the construction industry in which both design and construction is carried out by one organization.

Minimal Terms of Project Realization: With the "Design & Build" scheme as a result of parallel work, different stages can be done simultaneously, which reduces the time spent on the project. According to the experience of "Mabeli", projects with this approach can be implemented 40% faster.

Responsibility at all Stages of Work: Mabeli will take over and will be responsible at all stages of work on the project, from the beginning to delivery of the object "turnkey". The main advantage of this is that if something goes wrong, architects and builders will not shift the blame on each other, trying to reduce their responsibility for the situation.

The Design-Build process

Implementation of construction projects under the scheme "Design & Build" is a project implementation system used in the construction industry in which both design and construction is carried out by one organization.

With this approach, the entire responsibility under the contract is assigned to one company, thus minimizing the risks for the investor-customer and reducing the delivery time due to the simultaneous implementation of design, production, delivery and installation of the building.

By concentrating full responsibility on one person, the "Design & Build" scheme provides the client with transparent contractual terms, obligates the contractor to bear full responsibility for the project, regardless of the nature of the detected malfunctions.

But unlike other construction methods, phases overlap, and all team members collaborate throughout the process to provide rapid project delivery.

 

The Design-Build process has five primary phases:

1. Selecting a Design-Builder

The Design-Build process begins when you select your Design-Builder. In other methods, you would start by selecting an architect. To limit the potential risks associated with having one entity design and construct your facility, you may have a competitive bidding process for Design-Builders.

Because Design-Builders aim to find you savings throughout design and construction, you’ll benefit from using a qualifications-based selection. That means you select the Design-Builder with the best credentials, experience, expertise and team. Design-Builders deliver the best value by evaluating budget solutions early in the design process and by creating continuous price estimates as the design progresses.

Because Design-Builders aim to find you savings throughout design and construction, you’ll benefit from using a qualifications-based selection. That means you select the Design-Builder with the best credentials, experience, expertise and team. Alternatively, you can use a best-value selection method, in which you select a Design-Builder based on a combination of estimated price and added value in addition to experience, expertise and credentials.

2. Pre-construction assessments

The pre-construction phase of a project is crucial, setting the course for a successful job. It includes business and financial assessments, in which your Design-Builder’s pre-construction staff learn about your business, industry, goals, vision, financial realities and current and future facility needs.

Concurrently, architects and engineers begin architectural, mechanical and electrical system assessments and review any existing floor plans, fire and smoke preparations, interior room finishes and structural systems. While the design team gathers critical information, surveyors perform a field assessment of your job site to ready it for construction.

With all the key information in mind, your project team partners with you to identify the right facility, design and construction program to help you achieve your goals within your budget and time constraints. The scope of your project is set, and creative solutions can take shape to help you realize your vision.

3. Architectural design

At this stage, your project team has a solid understanding of your business and financial needs, project schedule, cost, job site, and your facility’s architectural and mechanical requirements. Next, construction team and project managers partner with the architectural team to value engineer cost savings into the design.

This is where Design-Build differs from other construction methods. Architects can be employed directly by the Design-Builder, or the Design-Builder can subcontract out specialty design to trusted architectural design partners. Architects work on the same team, under the same contract, with the Design-Builder. And all key project team members come together to form a design that balances all needs. Architects, engineers, construction professionals and key subcontractors and vendors can all add value at the inception of a build.

Once owner and project team have defined the big picture, preliminary drawings progress into detailed design and schematics. And the project team works in fluid collaboration to produce cost estimates at 30 percent, 60 percent and 90 percent design completion. At the conclusion of this process, owners receive a guaranteed maximum price (GMP), a set project schedule and contract drawings — the drawings used to build a facility.

4. Construction

Following architectural design, you’ll save time, as you won’t need a second bid phase to select a contractor. In fact, your Design-Builder will start readying your job site while design progresses, and elements of construction can begin during the design phase.

By overlapping construction and design, your project team can deliver a timely build that makes aggressive schedules possible. You’ll still have a construction team, specialty subcontractors, materials vendors and all the same quality standards as you would in other methods.

But the job will get done more quickly, to a clearly defined scope with total accountability.

5. Post-construction

Once your new or renovated facility is complete, your Design-Builder should provide a post-construction handoff. That includes walk-throughs, instructional videos, hands-on training and core documentation for owners, facility managers and facility management teams. Don’t overlook the post-construction handoff, as it’s a critical part of any build.

 

Benefits of Design & Build

Design & Build

Rapid delivery. As we covered in the Design-Build process section, Design-Build offers rapid delivery because design and construction happen concurrently and because there’s only one selection phase instead of two. The delivery method turns otherwise impossible timeframes into reality.

Smooth process. Time and again, Design & Build reliably equates to headaches eliminated, teams collaborating and owners pleased. The single-source responsibility afforded by Design-Build means there’s no conflicting recommendations from contractor and architect. Instead, one entity has total accountability for any and all construction and design elements. Owners know where the buck stops, and the way is paved for a smooth owner experience.

Better solutions and better value. In Design & Build, there’s no need to limit solutions to traditional ideas. The job is the boss. So teams are only limited by what’s right for the job. As ideas come to the table, teams work as one unit to analyze them, in full transparency, so owners are assured of getting the best materials, siting, schedule, design and more. This innovative process makes it possible for owners to see more options, make better-informed decisions and realize a better value.

Better communication and fewer problems. Delivering a successful Design & Build project requires open collaboration between all team members. Creating a team-oriented approach promotes high levels of communication and transparency, both imperative to the success of any project. It allows owners to share their vision with the team, and align the interests of the stakeholders.

The team-oriented approach also provides the collaborative effort necessary to evaluate the project’s objectives, assess schedules and analyze opportunities as the project progresses. As a team, no other group is better qualified to align the owner’s vision with the project’s goals and objectives. Design & Build facilitates it. All team members stay on the same page because everyone is working under one contract.
