Design Build

As your Design-Build team leader, Bass Built will see your project through from a picture in your head to the keys in your hand. We eliminate the potential adversarial roles of the old traditional construction method by working together with a professional team of architects, designers, engineers, suppliers, subcontractors, and you to deliver your project in the most time and cost efficient manner possible.

As your Design-Build contractor, we are able to place your project on the fast-track to expedite it through the preconstruction phases, from design to completion.

What is Design-Build?

Design-build is an alternative to design-bid-build. Under the latter approach, the owner selects and commissions an architect or engineer to prepare drawings and specifications under a design contract. The owner subsequently selects a construction contractor to build the facility under a construction contract. Two separate contracts leave room for disputes between the two contracts. Putting all your eggs in one basket is actually a wise choice when it comes to Design-Build.

Design-build is an advanced method of project delivery in which one entity (the design-builder) forges a single contract with the project owner to provide both architectural/engineering (A/E) design services and construction services. Design-build is also known as design/construct or single-source responsibility.

Design-build, design-bid-build, and construction management are the three project delivery systems most commonly employed in North America. Over the past 15 years, use of design-build has greatly accelerated in the United States, making this delivery method one of the most significant trends in design and construction today.

Advantages of Design-Build Construction of Your New Home

  1. You get early project budgeting numbers from the contractor. A tangible price is put on initial conceptual ideas and kept in one place; no need to divvy up your budget amongst several different services.
  2. A guaranteed maximum price can be determined early, right after the scope of the project is determined. This means that you aren’t going to get gouged from one of the many moving pieces in a typical construction project.
  3. The owner, contractor, and architect/engineer work as a TEAM to design and build a project that satisfies the needs of the owner. Our team dynamic has proven successful time after time.
  4. If time is an issue, construction can begin before the design is completed. This is often referred to as “Fast Tracking”. A good example of “Fast Tracking” would be that the site work and excavation could start while the interior layout is still being designed and interior finishes being selected.
  5. The need for high cost change orders that can occur in design-bid-build are eliminated.
  6. Architectural and engineering fees are kept to a minimum, and determined from the beginning.
  7. Contractor fees are kept to a minimum, and determined from the beginning.
  8. Construction costs are minimized through use of the latest systems and methods known by the contractor to be cost effective.
  9. Chances for misunderstandings are minimized, if not eliminated, with the team approach.
  10. Conflicts are eliminated that generally occur with the traditional “Low Bid” system because of the team mentality.
  11. Realistic completion dates are established by the contractor who will actually be doing the work. The job will be done when we say it will be.
