Mark Hoeppner Construction, Inc. has been involved with Design / Build projects for many years now. We have had much success in regard to owner and our company satisfactions. Mark Hoeppner Construction Inc. has completed and are currently completing several Design / Build projects. Here are some advantages of Design / Build over Plan / Spec projects.
One of the main advantages of the Design / Build concept is the team that is formed. The owner, contractor and architect form a trusting team to achieve a common goal of a quality facility for the owner. This also builds the all-important communication lines between the parties that are maintained from design to completion.
With Design / Build the main focus is quality and desires with cost, not just cost. This makes the costing of desired items less cumbersome because they can be investigated during the design, not after the bid.
The Design / Build time frame is genuinely shorter. The pricing for the project is being prepared as the drawings are being completed. This can eliminate a few months out of the process, especially if the project is over budget. If a project goes through the bid process and the bids come in over budget, the design needs to be redone and the whole process is repeated. This situation can be eliminated in the Design / Build process.
Quality is important to everyone, especially in a project where you are investing a substantial amount of money. In the Plan / Spec process the contractor has to use the lowest priced subcontractor because if the contractor does not there is the real possibility that they will not be the selected contractor. Lowest price does not always mean that you are getting the best. In the Design / Build process you choose the subcontractors that you have worked with on past projects and know will do quality work and still remain economical.
Confidence / Relationship
With the owner being a team member there is an involvement with the contractor and architect that will not be realized in a Plan / Spec process. The owner can feel comfortable talking with the contractor and / or his field reps during the construction process. Also, with this personal relationship, questions or concerns can be more easily and quickly answered.
