The builder is involved in the design process.
When the builder participates in the design process from the beginning, they provide helpful insights on construction materials and methods that can make the design more efficient and less costly to construct. Additionally, because the designer and builder work together with you, there is no misinterpretation by the construction team about the approved design. Having a design-build team also provides clear communication and single-point accountability.
Faster project delivery.
By overlapping design and construction, and by potentially reducing or eliminating conflicts between designer and builder, design-build can usually deliver a home construction project more quickly than the design-bid-build approach.
Since the builder is also the designer, it is far less likely that items will be overlooked, or allowances will not be sufficient to cover your choice of finishes and materials. This results in a far more accurate price estimate and true cost to construct.
If you were to take your architect-designed plan to three builders and had each of them provide you with a price, it is very likely you would receive three very different estimates. This happens because each builder is going to bid what they typically build, not necessarily what you want. With a design-build project, you get the new home you want without unnecessary change orders and overruns that cost money and time.
