We believe in a simple, yet effective, approach to commercial construction. Design-Build. Choosing Avatar to manage the design and build for your next project allows our team to coordinate every aspect of the build from concept to completion to post-construction while reducing communication to one point of contact throughout the project. This has proven to be the most efficient path toward project completion for clients who demand a superior end-product. Avatar takes responsibility for overseeing all aspects of the project so that you never have to worry about unmet goals, delayed schedules or budget overruns.
We provide you with a dedicated point of contact to ensure project goals are being met and are on track while our team of professionals work together to exceed your expectations.
What is Design + Build? — Simply the Most Cost Efficient Way to Build
- Hassle-Free Relationships
- Lower Costs
- Accelerated Schedule
The design-build construction delivery method replaces the traditional method of awarding separate contracts for the design and construction phases of a project. The contractor, designers, subcontractors and owner all work together as one team. This collaboration can reduce the time and cost of a project by as much as 20%.
With the traditional method of construction, owners must manage two separate contracts while acting as a “middle man” between the designers and the contractor. Under a design-build method, the owner manages a single contract with the design-build contractor, who forms and manages their team of designers and subcontractors.
The design-build process is a popular and effective approach to commercial construction projects. Designers are often utilized during the planning stage of development so that they can provide innovative solutions while building teams have foresight into what will be required for tasks ahead in order to ensure success, which typically results in higher quality buildings than those built through traditional methods. Some benefits include high-quality facilities with time efficiency and lower costs due to limited interference from third parties such as architects or engineers once the work has started on site.
The Design/Build Process:
- Choose Avatar as Your Design-Builder
