Design | Build is characterized by the single point of responsibility for the project. The Design | Builder takes on both the Design and Construction services under one contract and represents the owner’s total interest.
Scott have provided comprehensive Design | Build services since 1978. With an in-house design capability and experienced pre-construction teams in each Branch, they are geared for the built-in Design | Build benefits of fast response, early comprehensive construction budgets, and the overlapping of design and construction to fast track a project.
Under a CM contract, the owner secures the services of a Construction Manager to work with his chosen design team. Benefits arise when owner, designer and contractor collaborate early in the project to achieve best practices including improved cost control and an earlier start to construction.
Scott’s Design | Build experience comes to the forefront with this method. Their years of experience working with design teams to match client expectations and protect budgets is well established.
This sequential Design – Bid – Build method reflects a client hiring a Design Consultant to produce documents that are competitively tendered to a given number of qualified bidders.
More often seen in certain market sectors where work is awarded in a bidding process, it requires longer lead time with design, and pre-construction input is limited.
Scott remain active in this market while maintaining a high level of sub-trade, supplier connections to assure competitiveness across their full product line, no matter which building method is chosen by the client.
Every owner has different objectives; fast track completion, strict budget demands, transparency or a high level of involvement at every stage are a few.
Customizing a project delivery method to precisely accommodate an owner’s requirements and provide a services package that best meets their needs is something Scott Builders consistently explore with each owner.
Our goal is to best apply our knowledge and proactive construction management services to meet a project’s unique demands.
