How to Get the Most Out of the Design-Build
Project Delivery Approach
  • The design-build approach has become the favorite
    for many homeowners in the last decade or so. In
    the beginning of 2019, ForConstructionPROS.com
    estimated that 44 of construction dollars would
    be spent on design-build projects between 2018
    and 2021. Unlike the traditional building
    approach where the control of the project is
    split between the designer and contractor, this
    strategy hands the whole responsibility on one
    entity either the designer or contractor.
  •  
  • If you are a contractor or designer in charge of
    a design-build project, you must realize that the
    ball is entirely in your court. Your boss is
    totally dependent on you to make his dreams a
    reality. How can you make sure you do not
    disappoint?
  • Here are a few tips worth noting.

4
Adopt A Team-Oriented Approach
  • Making the shift from a bid-mentality to a
    collaborative environment can be a hard shell to
    crack for many contractors and architects. This
    is because many of them are used to bidding low
    and making as much profit from the project as
    possible. In doing so, they find it easy to
    point fingers when things go south during the
    project. If you really want to score high with a
    design-build construction approach, you have to
    be willing to adopt a team-oriented and
    integrated approach.

5
Be Picky With Your Team Members
  • Having a good design-build team is the secret to
    the success of a construction project. When you
    have the most qualified workers in your team, the
    sky is the limit for you. Obviously, good
    workers do not drop from the sky. It takes
    meticulous screening of every single candidate
    you bring onboard. Do not settle for low price
    but rather, genuine talent, skill, and
    experience.

6
Understand Design-Build Best Practices
  • Like any other huge project, there are a number
    of best practices in the world of construction.
    An example is performing specialty trade
    integration in the beginning stages of the
    project rather than after the design phase is
    over. It is easy to feel cocky about your
    knowledge of these practices without really
    walking the talk. If you want to be effective in
    what you do, ensure you are educated on all the
    design-build best practices.

7
Get A Clear Vision From The Owner
  • It is uncommon for project owners to clash with
    their contractors because of communication
    breakdowns regarding the vision of the project.
    It is, therefore, prudent that you clearly
    understand and articulate the project vision from
    the owner. That way, you can achieve their goals
    and give them what they pay for.

8
Define The Scope Of Work For Each Member
  • A successful building begins with a clear
    understanding of the expectations of each team
    member. This requires a thorough definition of
    the scope of work upfront. If this is lacking,
    the final product may not meet the projects
    goals. The project leader should ensure that
    everyone knows what he or she needs to do at
    every point of the project.
  •  
  • There is a difference between an average
    contractor and a cutting-edge one. The latter
    will do all they can to put a smile on their
    owners lips. If you are to join the list, watch
    out for the above-highlighted tips.

Common Challenges of the Design-Build Project
Delivery Approach and How to Overcome Them
  • From minimizing costs and claims to reducing the
    construction time, the design-build (DB) project
    delivery approach is the current big trend in the
    construction industry. If you want to let go of
    the stress of sharing your project between
    architects and contractors, design-build has got
    you covered. Unfortunately, contractors and
    architects are yet to reap the maximum benefits
    of design-build. This is partly because of
    certain challenges that they face in DB projects.
    Follow through as we unveil some of these
    challenges and their solutions.

10
Absence Of Effective Collaboration
  • Contract management is one of the biggest
    challenges in many design-build projects.
    Ideally, this delivery method heavily relies on
    the collaboration of every participant to ensure
    effective results. Unfortunately, contract
    management is sometimes unwilling to embrace
    collaboration for their personal reasons.
  •  
  • Solution Every team member should be trained to
    foster an integrated, collaborative environment.

11
Incompetent Team
  • One of the advantages of a design-build project
    approach is that the project owner can select the
    very best manager to oversee the project to its
    completion. However, building a strong cohesive
    team is easier said than done. Everyone from the
    top management down to the bottom teams should be
    very competent. When you hire the wrong people,
    you will soon experience trouble.
  •  
  • Solution The person in charge should put effort
    and time into selecting every single worker for
    the team.

12
Trust Issues Between The Owner And The Contractor
  • Although many owners love the design-build
    approach because it involves dealing with one
    person in charge of the project, some have issues
    trusting them. Often, these owners lack the
    comfort and security that the contractor or
    engineer can really handle the task. So even if
    they have the contractor working for them, the
    owner will want to micromanage the project too
    much. On the opposite side of the spectrum, some
    architects or contractors do not communicate
    everything to their bosses, making them feel left
    out. Both of these scenarios can cause mistrust
    between the project owner and the contractor.
  •  
  • Solution Communicate mutual expectations from
    either party before signing any contract.

13
Unclear Expectations Within The Team
  • It is one thing for contract management to
    articulate the vision of the project. It is
    another for team members to know exactly what is
    expected of them. The team should understand
    their contribution to the greater good of the
    project. They should be flexible, available, and
    knowledgeable and discover what they should do
    always.
  •  
  • Solution Clearly explain the scope of work of
    every team member.

14
Legal issues
  • The last challenge affecting the design-build
    project delivery approach is the myriad issues
    that are not solved or tested. Some of them
    include the following
  • Contract relationship between the parties
  • Performance warranties
  • Licensing laws
  • Competitive bidding laws
  • Entitlement to change of orders 
  • Although there have been great strides towards
    design-build services, these legal issues need to
    be dealt with. As the number of DB projects goes
    up, there is hope that the future will be
    different.
  • Solution Get legal experts to help you sort out
    the legal issues.
  • Although the design-build project delivery
    approach comes with a number of advantages, it
    also presents some challenges for the contract
    manager. Luckily, there are solutions to these
    challenges as explained in this guide.

15
Why New Homeowners are Opting for Architect-Led
Design Build
  • If you have ever seen a building project to the
    end, you know it can get messy and frustrating
    really fast. Trying to play referee between
    architects and contractors, staying in budget,
    and managing delivery times require serious
    commitment and effort. It is even worse if you,
    as the project owner, have to split your time
    between the project and other undertakings like
    your job or running your business. This is why
    design-build is popular among homeowners these
    days. This is a single point-responsibility
    approach to construction where either an
    architect or contractor is given control over the
    project.
  • Let us zero in on architect-led design build and
    examine why new homeowners are crazy about it.

16
What Is An Architect-Led Designer Build?
  • As the term sounds, this approach is where an
    architect is responsible for the means of
    construction, safety procedures, techniques, and
    the well-being of everyone handling the project.
    They are in charge of the total cost of the
    project (both the design and construction
    phases), timings for substantial and final
    completion, all project delay costs if
    applicable, all safety procedures, costs of
    mechanics, and architects sub-consultants or
    subcontractors. In other words, the architect is
    the person controlling all design and
    construction services necessary to complete the
    project. To do this, the architect must obtain
    the contractors commercial general liability
    policies and proper licenses.

17
Why Architect-Led Design Build?
  • There are several reasons why the architect-led
    design build is huge in the construction industry
    now. Here are some of them.
  • 1. Single Point Responsibility
  • In traditional construction, the designer and
    contractor are notorious for playing the blame
    game when something goes wrong in the project.
    Often, this causes issues with honoring
    warranties and litigation because none wants to
    be responsible. In architect-led design build
    projects, the architect has full responsibility
    for the projects outcome. This means that if the
    plan fails to develop the required number of
    kilowatt-hours, the architect bears the blame
    even if the parties dont know what caused the
    failure in the first place.

18
  • 2. Shorter Time Of Delivery
  • The second reason homeowners fancy the design
    build strategy is because it guarantees a shorter
    duration of the project. When the same party is
    handling both the design and construction phases,
    initial construction and procurement can take
    place before the completion of the design phase.
    The last months of the design stage overlap the
    first months of the construction/procurement
    stage. The end result is time savings which
    translate to reduced construction costs and
    faster revenue.
  • 3. Minimal Claims
  • Single-point responsibility also ensures that
    there are few or no claims for extras during
    building projects. This is in contrast to
    traditional construction projects where a
    contractor is entitled to compensation caused by
    errors, ambiguities, or omissions in the
    specifications and plans.

19
  • 4. Performance Warranties
  • Finally, architect-led design build makes it
    possible to construct overall performance
    warranties and to tally them alongside
    coordinated damage causes. Traditional
    construction largely does not have performance
    warranties because the constructor may throw the
    blame to the designer and vice-versa in case of a
    failure.
  •  
  • Building a house is a huge undertaking. This is
    why homeowners prefer using a method that leaves
    with the least amount of worry, anxiety, and
    concern. The architect-led design build can do
    that and more.
