Design/Build

DESIGN / BUILD

Design/build is a method of facilities project delivery in which one entity, the design/builder, forges a single contract with the owner to provide for architectural/engineering design and construction services. The potential benefits of this project delivery method include:

  • Single point of responsibility
  • Reduced administrative burden for the Owner
  • Better quality control
  • Opportunity for innovation
  • Early knowledge of costs

Because of the unique qualifications of the Principals of JWR Construction Services, the “Teaming” necessary to make design/build successful is inherent in the company culture. At JWR we have been performing design/build services for the past 28 years. Our research has shown that design/build, when compared with traditional design and low-bid contracting, is 33% faster, 6% less in unit cost, superior in product quality, and generates less than half the claims and litigation.
