Design/Build Coordination


There are many reasons why Design/Build is the preferred project delivery method in today’s market. First and foremost, there is a single source of responsibility between the Owner and the Design/Builder. This eliminates the levels of relationships between the contractor and design team so the owner only has one contractual relationship. Second, the time frame to complete a project is compressed since design and construction activities are concurrent. Third, project costs are identified at an early stage and budgetary concerns can be addressed in the preliminary design. Fourth, Design/Build inherently provides higher quality since the singular responsibility serves as a motivator for proper project performance.

Frye Builders’ philosophy on Design/Build is to outsource design services to experienced architects and engineers. This allows the selection of designers who are specialists in the type of project to be built. Subcontractor procurement is a more selective process and is not based on Design-Bid- Build method of using the low bid price submitted by a firm with little knowledge of the project. Instead qualified firms, who are involved in the design process and understand the cost, timing, and quality requirements of the project, are part of the team.
