Our educated and experienced team are all tried and true and have completed many successful jobs together. Let us do the research so that you don’t have to.
Design-Build vs. Traditional Construction
Traditional project delivery has a lot more moving parts than design-build delivery. Traditional project delivery includes five main components:
The owner manages two main contracts: that of designer and contractor. They must act as middlemen between these two who may have difficulties communicating at times. Designers manager their sub-consultants, and contractors manage sub-contracts. Because of this you will have to rely on their base of knowledge and experience to hire competent teams.
Design-build has three main components:
- Design-build entity
As owner, you will only have to manage your contract with us, the design-builders. Our designer and contractor are on the same team and will give you unified suggestions and project updates. They are well-aware of what each are working on, as well as their respective sub-consultants.
One of the biggest selling points of a design-build team is cost minimization. Custom built properties can run up a bill quickly, and less team members means less overhead.
Design-build is a beneficial path to pursue especially for large-scale products. The less you have to micromanage and troubleshoot, the more you’ll have time to think about the big picture in terms of home design.
Divided teams can disagree on fundamental aspects of a build that you as an owner may not have all the information about, making it difficult to make an executive decision. At Rick O'Brien & Company Inc we’ve been providing Plainville with quality teamwork for years.
Our architects and contractors work shoulder to shoulder to make sure the project turns out exactly the way all three of you imagine it right from the start. Their sub-consultants and building team are also part of this smooth process and provide the highest level of quality construction and professionalism.
