The F&S Design-Build Method

Unlike the traditional Design-Bid-Build approach to construction, the Design-Build method allows the Owner to contract with a single entity for both the design and construction of the project. This approach offers the following advantages:

  • Total accountability – single point of responsibility for the project design and construction
  • Reduced risk for Owner
  • Effective value engineering ideas that maximize construction practicality during the design process
  • Cost-savings and efficiencies
  • Fastest project delivery system allowing for a quicker move in date (Fast Tracking)
  • Faster response to changing customer needs throughout project
  • Alleviation of potential conflicts between architect and contractor that sometimes occurs with the traditional delivery method

F & S Building Innovations understands that every project is unique and the Design-Build approach may not always meet the objectives of the customer. We stand ready to help our customers identify the method that best parallels their requirements.
