Design-Build presents a great opportunity for early collaboration. Rather than separate the “Designers” from the “Builders,” Design-Build delivery formalizes a partnership between design and building teams throughout the entirety of the project, from inception to completion. This includes the contributions of key subcontractors and engineers during the conceptual stages of design.
At HOFMANN FINN, we believe that our experience and knowledge permit us to substantially support the design process. As a team member working toward a common goal, we offer informed suggestions on items such as: structural system alternatives, construction details, material selections, proven means and methods, lead-time issues, and provide valuable input on many other design components.
In a Design-Build process, this direct line of communication between the design and building teams has proven to provide a seamless transition from design to construction, typically equating to substantial time and cost savings for the owner.
