Design Build

Design/Build

D.H. Griffin is an experienced design/builder and has relationships with several design professionals throughout the Carolinas. We also bring Owner’s Representative experience, working as an extension of our customer’s staff. Whether it’s creating a new retail store in just a few weeks before the holiday shopping season, or finishing a project before grant money expires, there are several reasons why construction projects may require an extra speedy delivery. For those projects, owners often choose the design/build delivery method because it allows the design and construction phases to progress concurrently. For example, the builder can start the earthwork and foundations while the building systems and finishes are still being selected.

An added benefit of design/build contracts is that the owner only holds a single contract for both the architect and builder, as opposed to one for each. This contractual relationship also fosters a spirit of collaboration between architect and builder not found in other delivery methods.
