In a Design-Bid delivery method where the owner obtains multiple bids from general contractors, the difference between the bids may be around 5%. That represents your maximum cost savings through the traditional Design-Bid method.
Now consider: What if price was more of a focus throughout the design process, and not just during the bid process? Which approach wins out? Design-Build will usually win this evaluation. At Peoples Construction, we have submitted bids on projects using the Design-Bid method in which all bids exceeded the owner’s budget. By converting the project to Design-Build, we have delivered projects for far less than the original Design-Bid price. The greatest savings we have seen in these cases where both methods were used is just over a 50% savings by going with Design-Build as the delivery method.
Peoples Construction is a general contractor that does commercial projects mainly in the Jackson Mississippi metro area. We are a 50 year, third generation company that specializes in medium sized projects built with the Design Build delivery method. With this method, Peoples Construction can work with a client from the very beginning, taking their ideas and give them a finished product with the execution of only one contract for all facets of the design and the construction. This is the quickest and most cost effective way to build a new commercial building.
