Design/build is a method used in construction to deliver a project where the design and construction services are contracted by a single entity known as the design-builder or design-build contractor. This method with its single point responsibility offers the clearest contractual solutions for clients since the design/build contractor is responsible for all of the work on the project. Design/build streamlines the time to produce results in a construction project. It is one entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from the initial concept through the completion of the project.
Design-build is often compared to the ‘master builder’ approach which has been in practice for a few thousand years, especially in Europe. The American Institute of Architects acknowledges that design/build is becoming one of the main approaches to construction. Studies have shown that the design/build delivery method is growing in non-residential projects in the United States. It is now one of the most significant trends in design and construction today
Chandlee and Sons Construction Company believe this method of delivering a project saves clients time and money. It also enables clients direct input in their design without placing themselves in between the architect and the contractor. At the same time clients are relieved of legal and managerial responsibilities because the burden of the costs and risks rest on the shoulders of the design/builder.
As a result of offering clients the design/build method, Seth Chandlee and Jim Chandlee have are able to complete projects sooner and with fewer problems due to the collaboration in project management. The integrated team at Chandlee and Sons is geared toward efficiency and innovation which saves the client money. Seth, Jim and their team strive to exceed performance expectations in order to deliver the very best finished project. And because Chandlee and Sons is held responsible for the cost, time and performance clients are free to concentrate on their project. We find the relationship between our team and clients is transformed into an alliance which fosters teamwork. We have found design/build projects to be very successful for our clients and for ourselves, says Seth Chandlee.
During the last month, Chandlee and Sons Construction Company, located in Alpharetta, Georgia, has provided design/build services for the Ankle & Foot Centers of Georgia in Deerfield Place, Milton, Georgia and Willow’s, a unique gift and card shop in Canton Market Place shopping center in Canton, Georgia.
