The design-build project delivery system benefits owners by positioning a single entity as responsible for managing diverse project components. The owner can look to the design-build firm to centrally manage all design issues, budgeting, permitting, construction management, change orders, billing and client input. This focused management structure can help minimize project risk, reduce the delivery schedule, and optimize the methods and materials used to complete construction projects.
When managing design-build projects, Bohannan Huston coordinates an integrated, multi-discipline effort between the project owner, the design team and the contractor. We provide services from the point of the early designs through contractor bid selection and eventual oversight of the construction process. Our staff is experienced in directing all of the project’s specialists in a well-structured and coordinated environment.
Our Services Include:
- Utilities & Energy Infrastructure
- Federal Facilities
- Public, Private Sectors, & Partnerships
We have managed numerous complex, award-winning design-build projects—often on fast-track schedules—for federal agencies, national laboratories and private developers. In addition to managing the overall D-B projects, Bohannan Huston provides structural and civil engineering services as part of the projects. The success of the D-B team hinges on the ability of our designers to quickly provide accurate information with sufficient detail to support the preparation of the construction bid. Since D-B projects are highly dependent on the collaborative relationships of team members, we maintain strategic relationships with leading contractors and architectural design professionals.
