PFEIFER Structures design-build construction contractual relationship chart

Design-build construction is an integrated approach that delivers design and construction services under one contract with a single point of responsibility. The design-build method successfully delivers office buildings, schools, stadiums, transportation, and water infrastructure projects with superior results.

The Design-Build Advantage

Key Advantages:

  • 30% Faster speed to market
  • 6% Lower overall project cost
  • 40% Non-residential construction market share

Design-build provides benefits for owners. Owners experience faster delivery, cost savings and better quality than other contracting methods. Dealing with a single entity decreases owners’ administrative burden and allows them to focus on the project, rather than managing separate contracts. The approach also reduces their risk and results in fewer litigation claims for all parties involved. Like owners, the design-builder benefits from a decreased administrative burden because the communication between designers and builders is streamlined.
