Design-Build Services

AWA Business Corporation

When a client starts a project, they usually have to oversee two individual contracts, one for a designer and another for a builder. This process usually results in significant delays, especially if communication between the two firms is poor.

More often than not, these delays can waste both time and money, impacting the project. In addition, if a project goes over budget without significant progress, it will result in the owner having to draft contracts for new firms.

While these types of contracts can sometimes go well for the client, they can still be stressful to manage. Having two separate teams on any project can be confusing, resulting in misunderstandings and other problems on the job site.

How Design-Build Construction Services Can Help?

AWA Business Corporation

AWA Business Corporation is happy to serve our clients as a design-build construction company. By providing our customers with both services, we make it easier for the project manager to oversee the work we’ve done.

Design-build only requires one entity, which performs both the designing and construction services. In addition, one company oversees the entire project from design to completion, which streamlines the work provided. Combining these two services makes communication much easier, as there are not two separate firms hiring additional workers. Instead, there is only a single firm on any given project, which usually hires subcontractors to perform the work.

Even with various subcontractors under their wing, a firm can act as a unified team, which allows a greater range of work to be done.

Benefits of Design-Build

Design-build is beneficial for all parties involved, as it provides all entities to communicate and deliver project goals.

While traditional construction methods can sometimes result in miscommunication between the two firms involved, design-build is an effective tool for communication.

AWA Business Corporation is proud to offer comprehensive design-build services, which help property owners get the results they need.
Our design-build services have the following benefits:

  • Reduced Risk
  • Less Expense
  • Quick Turnaround Time
  • One Contract
  • Less Burden on the Owner

Reduced Risk

One of the biggest reasons many project managers consider design-build over traditional construction services involves overall risk. Hiring two separate entities for a single job can be relatively risky for project owners.

Hiring two separate entities can sometimes have unfortunate consequences. For example, if project delays come up, the two separate firms usually blame one another for the project’s various problems. These arguments could further delay the project and even result in expensive litigation.

How Litigation Impacts Construction

Litigation usually occurs if the two companies impact any warranties or violate contracts and regulations. It can cost an administrator or owner a lot of extra money, which could further delay the construction process.

Thankfully, design-builders take the risk out of contracting. Since there is only one contract, the owner worries less about the risk of in-fighting or litigation. The Design-Builder is responsible for hiring subcontractors or team members, meaning the property owner only has to worry about administration.

Less Expense

Hiring a single team to do all of the construction work can also save money for the property owner. Also, since everyone will be working over a single contract, there is no possibility of going over budget.

Utilizing one firm for all of the construction tasks results in a lower overhead cost for the owner. In addition, since the team is unified, all members can successfully communicate, preventing costly mistakes or delays.

Quick Turnaround Time

Hiring one firm to design and construct a property saves a lot of time. Not only does the contract take less long to draft, but the actual construction process tends to be quicker as well. This quick turnaround time has everything to do with the unified approach of design-building.

Since all the construction and designing happens under one company, it is easier for subcontractors and workers to communicate their work goals. This communication results in a quicker turnaround time for projects.

Less Burden on the Owner

Design-build services are also beneficial because they are much less stressful for the project owner. Since there is only one contract to oversee, there is much less paperwork involved in the job. Additionally, since only one company is on the site, there is no risk of internal litigation or other costly delays.

By having only one team on the job, an owner can focus on administration duties instead of mending relationships between two angry firms. In addition, since there is less potential for unforeseen delays, the project owner can worry less about the future of their project and focus on their day-to-day tasks.

With AWA Business Corporation, project owners have the assurance that their project will complete on time and within budget. Our highly experienced Design-Build team has been serving the local and national community for 25 years, and we’ve delivered quality projects to our clients as a result.
