Why Hire a Design-Build Firm for Your Retail Project?

Every great project starts with a great vision — and turning that vision into a reality can be a daunting task for even the most seasoned of retail owners and investors.

Fortunately, a quality design-build firm can help you achieve that vision while saving you a lot of time, money, and headaches in the process. 

Here are just a few of the ways this is made possible with the power of design-build. 

Many Experts, One Point of Contact

With the design-build delivery method, the owner works with one team, under one contract, with one primary contact leading the project team: the design-builder. This method ensures that there is a shared vision, with all critical team members assembled from the onset.

Design-build firms employ project managers, architects, and other experts who work seamlessly to ensure that your vision is realized from start to finish. This means that you can trust that the team will work together seamlessly to ensure that your project is completed on time, within budget, and with as little disruption as possible. 

Streamlining the Process with Design-Build

Design-build further drives synergy by allowing multiple project steps to take place simultaneously. 

Many front-end construction functions, such as schedule development, shop drawings, material purchasing, and manpower preparation can begin while the final design documents & permits are being completed.  

Design-build firms can provide you with early & accurate project budgets, recommend design choices that might lower your costs, and help you navigate potential supply-side shortages or upcoming price increases.

Additionally, the integrated approach allows the design-builder to make adjustments on the fly, which can save time and money by reducing design revisions and change orders.

Improving Quality, and Reducing Risk, With Design-Build 

Design-build firms are accountable for the entire project from start to finish, which means that they are invested in ensuring that the final product is of the highest quality. Your design-builder should do everything possible to ensure that the project meets your expectations and delivers the results you desire.

Further, a quality design-builder will constantly search for ways to help you achieve your goals in a more efficient and cost-effective way. This can help maximize your investment while delivering a space that exceeds your expectations.
