Design Build is a project delivery method that simplifies the process of retail remodeling and construction by providing you with a single point of contact for the design part as well as the construction part of the project. It saves you a lot of time and money and helps you avoid the hassle of dealing with the designer and the contractor separately.
Why Design Build
In traditional construction projects – be it a minor remodeling project or building something from scratch – you have to manage two different contracts – one with the designer and another one with the contractor.
If there they do not see eye to eye on certain things or if there is a lack of proper communication between them, the costs could go up and the project could get delayed. To avoid this problem, you have to act like a mediator and make sure they are on the same page.
With Design-Build, all these problems do not arise in the first place because the designer and the contractor belong to the same team. There is already an established system of collaboration in place and the team works like a well-oiled machine, without any friction between individual team members.
Most importantly, there is a single point of contact – the head of the Design-Build team – with whom you have to stay in touch throughout the project.
Why Pacific Retail Construction
We have nearly three decades of experience in the industry and we know what it takes to complete a project on time and within the allocated budget. Our Design-Build team has worked on several projects of varying scale and complexity over the years.
Our team members can draw on their experience and avoid mistakes that inexperienced contractors often make and ensure that your project is completed on time and the results exceed your expectations.
Careful Budgeting and Estimation
We prepare an estimate, get your approval, and finalize the budget right at the start to make sure you know exactly what your investment is going to be. We will not bother you with any surprise costs at the last minute.
Our team employs a variety of innovative design and construction methods to reduce your overall project costs while making sure the resulting product appeals to your aesthetic sensibilities. We apply the concept of Value Engineering to all our projects and recommend alternative building materials that are of high quality, but less expensive than the materials that are typically used in retail construction.
As a result, you might not only be able to save money upfront but also get more value on your investment in the long run, thanks to the reduction in maintenance and operating expenses.
The close collaboration between the designer and the contractor often results in an overlap in the design phase and the construction phase.
As the architect works on the design of the structure, the construction team will ready the site and get started with certain elements of construction. This is one of the reasons why the Design-Build team at Pacific Retail Construction can offer much shorter timeframes for delivery than most other general contractors.
Continued Flow of Information
The system also facilitates the smooth and uninterrupted flow of information among the stakeholders of the project at all the time. So, everyone is on the same page, the needs of team members are addressed immediately, any kind of conflict is spotted and resolved quickly, and the collective focus of the team always remains on the end goal – completing your project within the allocated budget in a timely manner.
Better Technology, Better Results
The use of cutting-edge technology allows us to manage our projects better, minimize or altogether avoid the wasteful expenditure of resources, facilitate better communication and coordination among our team members, and improve the overall efficiency and quality of our output.
Once we assume responsibility for your project, you can leave it to us entirely, rest assured that it will be completed successfully, and focus your time and efforts on your core business.
Single Point of Contact
Throughout the course of the project, you will only have a single point of contact – our Design Build team leader, who will coordinate all the members including designers, sub-consultants, contractors, sub-contractors, and material and equipment vendors.
The team makes collective recommendations from time to time to lower your costs and to improve the quality and safety of the structure. All you have to do is stay in touch with the head of the Design Build team and approve, or disapprove, the proposals that are submitted to you.
On the whole, our Design Build team can successfully complete any project – irrespective of its size, scale, and complexity – in a shorter time frame compared to any general contractor. We can help you save a lot of money and deliver results that are sure to exceed your expectations.
