Benefits of the Design/Build Approach

Clients have a single source of responsibility. The owner has only one contract to administer with a design/build team that has sole accountability.
Subcontractor and supplier involvement from beginning to end of project ensures most cost efficient design possible.
Fast track process resulting from the design/build concept allows permitting and construction start before completion of detailed drawings.
Value engineering can take place throughout the design process.
The bid process and its costs are eliminated.
Eliminates the possibility of paying architectural fees for construction document preparation, and soliciting bids from general contractors, only to learn that the budget has been exceeded. The redesign process and its steps result in additional costs and time delays.

Most of our projects are built using the design/build approach. However, if you have already contracted to have your plans prepared, Peoples Construction is glad to prepare a cost estimate and construction proposal from your supplied plans. We can also value engineer your plans. This is a process that involves reviewing plans and specifications, identifying items or techniques that could be changed to lower costs, and suggesting alternatives to these that would not adversely effect the building form or function.

You do not have to hire an architect or other design professional to have Peoples Construction contract your project. We are a full service design/build general contractor. We have the ability to take your ideas and generate all the plans and specifications necessary for permits and construction. We do this through utilizing our experienced staff of designers and consulting with a close knit group of architects and professional engineers.
