In a typical commercial build project, it is necessary to hire an architect or engineer and also a construction manager. In a design-build project, a single general contractor performs both design and construction services.
By working with the same general contractor for both architectural design and construction management a project has clear advantages that result in a savings of time and money.
Hilbers, Inc. has extensive experience as a design-build contractor successfully constructing many projects as the lead in both architects and general commercial contractor. Our expertise ensures excellent collaboration between the designers and builders. This partnership:
- Shortens the time to completion by allowing construction work to begin before the final design is complete
- Provides a single point of contact to manage schedule, budget, and quality
- Reduces administration and inspection costs and decreases or eliminates change orders due to errors or omissions
- Allows maximum contractor flexibility in the selection of innovative designs, materials, and construction techniques
