Design | Build

Under a design-build contract, the project is simultaneously designed and executed. Rather than the owner and design team establishing a blueprint that then passes to the contractor, each phase is constructed as it is being designed, with details being refined as the process advances. Through a close alliance between the owner, designer, and contractor that promotes collaboration and communication, the design-build approach allows an otherwise lengthy and costly project to be compressed into a manageable timeframe without increasing its budget.

Landau provides the same preconstruction services during a design-build project as with a construction management approach. We simultaneously begin working on the budget as the team begins the design. As we develop a better understanding of the design intent, we are able to assist the designers more efficiently and accelerate the construction pace. Throughout the process, the owner receives regular budget and schedule updates. When time is of the essence, a design-build contract can enable fast-tracking of the project.
