Design-build is an efficient construction management approach where we retain TMG level of quality across all aspects of the project. With Design-build we deploy one entity, the Design-build team, that works under a single contract with the project owner providing design and construction services. Through overlapping the design phase and construction phase we are able to reduce the delivery schedule.
At TMG we are take full accountability for the quality, cost and schedule of a project. Through our management of multiple objectives, we allow the owner to focus on decision making rather than the coordination of designers and builders.
Benefits of Design-build:
In Design-build delivery, the architect and contractor work as a team. This model significantly reduces conflicts between designer and builder over quality issues. The Design-build team produces a complete set of construction documents that are reviewed throughout the design process providing effective value engineering by all parties.
Design and construction teams, working and communicating together evaluate alternative materials and methods efficiently and accurately. Value engineering and constructability are implemented from the beginning of the project. Decisions that can be made during the programming, concept and design phases will impact the schedule and costs of the project more than any other phase of construction.
A Design-build project allows for the fastest project delivery with design and construction seamlessly overlapping. An owner benefits from a reduced timeframe through reduced labor costs and earlier utilization of a facility.
Single Point of Responsibility
With a Design-build contract, design and construction quality, cost, and schedule are combined into a single point of responsibility. Design-build contracts enable partnering between team members, which in turn adds value to a project.
Higher Level of Budget Predictability
TMG Design-build system allows the contractor to determine a guaranteed cost early on in the design phase. This allows the owner to make changes, request additional value engineering, or add scope to a project before a significant portion of the design is complete.
