What Is Design Build


Design + Build is a project delivery system used in the construction industry that requires an Architect as one of the primary participants to deliver a project in which the design and construction services are contracted by a single entity known as the design–builder or design–build contractor. Working with TES Design + Build gives you a single source for all of your facility construction needs. In contrast to "design–bid–build" the concept of design–build relies on a single point of responsibility contract and is used to minimize risks for the project owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project. Design + Build with its single point responsibility carries the clearest contractual remedies for the clients because the DB contractor will be responsible for all of the work on the project, regardless of the nature of the fault.

The traditional approach for construction projects consists of the appointment of a designer on one side, and the appointment of a contractor on the other side. The design–build procurement route changes the traditional sequence of work. It answers the client's wishes for a single point of responsibility in an attempt to reduce risks and overall costs. It is now commonly used in many countries and forms of contracts are widely available.
