WHAT IS DESIGN-BUILD CONTRACTING?

At J PAUL Construction, the design-build model means that the design, planning, permitting, and construction services are held under a single contract between our team and the client.

This method has many advantages for the client in terms of both budgets and schedules. It offers opportunities for innovative ideas and considers the needs, goals and objectives from the outset, encouraging collaboration to ensure everything is incorporated into the completed project. It is our job as the general contractor to bring together the client, the architect/engineers, suppliers, and subcontractors, to foster teamwork and cooperation to showcase expertise and deliver quality products.


The traditional design-BID-build approach, where clients will outsource the design portion of the project to an architectural or engineering company and then request bids in order to select construction services through a separate entity, is still widely used.

But introduces inefficiencies in the process, stifles collaboration, decentralizes decision making, and dilutes accountability.

COST EFFICIENCY VERSUS TRADITIONAL DESIGN-BID-BUILD

It stands to reason that the Design-Build method employed by J PAUL Construction introduces cost efficiencies not realized under the traditional approach. Budgets are identified at the beginning of the process and managed by a single entity so they can be monitored and maintained through the entire project.

Incongruous details between design and construction are dealt with collectively through direct collaboration as the project progresses eliminating revision distribution and avoiding possible miscommunication and costly disputes. The ability for the design team and build team to work together in real time saves you time and money.


NO COMPROMISE ON QUALITY

With JPAUL Construction, quality is a cornerstone of our design-build business. Our ability to provide streamlined scheduling is in no way a reflection of cutting corners or compromising our product. We believe that planning while designing, designing while procuring, and procuring while building leads to more efficient processes and ensures timely delivery and efficiency while maintaining the highest standard of quality.

Accurate and efficient scheduling is a result of our teams’ ability to collaborate with our suppliers and trusted associates to achieve optimal performance and deliver concurrent processes. Communication starts from the beginning and aids project coordination and allows us to reach our performance targets.
