The Advantages of Design-Build

The Advantages of Design-Build

Design-build construction, where an owner contracts with a single company to both design and build a facility, offers several advantages that can’t be found in other project delivery methods, which is why the proliferation of design-build has greatly increased over the past 15 years. HiFive was created to ensure our customers capitalize on these advantages with every project.

Shortened Project Delivery Time

Because you have a single source of project responsibility, design and construction activities can overlap, resulting in reduced time to project completion.

Single Point of Responsibility

HiFive customers have a single point of project responsibility. There is no finger-pointing. Your project team is focused on delivering quality rather than protecting their individual interests.

Improved Coordination and Cooperation

HiFive is a single, integrated team focused on delivering a quality, exceptional facility. Project communication is simplified and streamlined, as the design and construction teams work and make decisions cooperatively.

Higher Quality

An integrated team is geared toward efficiency and innovation, which assures better quality and value. Design-builders meet performance needs, not minimum design requirements, which leads to more impressive results.

Limited Risk

With design, construction, and cost knowledge working together cooperatively to develop a quality facility, you have better control of design and cost. Communication errors, conflicts of interests, and fragmented construction responsibility are risks the HiFive team will control.

Minimized Claims and Changes

HiFive is responsible for both supplying the designs and specifications for the project, and bringing them to life during construction. Our customers won’t face the delays and additional construction costs arising out of errors, omissions and ambiguities in plans found in traditional construction methods.

In addition, you have a project team fully committed to meeting your goals, and not protecting their own interests in the project. The entire design-build process creates a higher quality and more efficient project, minimizing unforeseen costs and allowing you to open on-time to start profiting sooner on your investment.[/pullQuote]
