Unlike traditional project delivery, which divides design and construction into two separate functions, the design/build delivery method places the design and building responsibilities under a single entity.
Under Design-Build services are established by assigning the sole responsibility of design and construction activities to one entity. Under the Design-Build approach, the owner has opportunity to reduce the project based risk and concentrate on the project criteria (the concept for the facility he needs), while we become responsible for the delivery. During this stage, if the owner wishes, DDD helps the owner to asses and create a clear and concise project design criteria. DDD then becomes fully engaged in project coordination, constructability and delivery under one established budget.

As expressed above, the true success of this type of project delivery is derived from the understanding that every project must be a result of a clear project plan. With higher than average standard of care, DDD can provide the success that clients look for. A project schedule with an improved delivery time and cost savings.
This improved project delivery is achieved by re-organizing project phases and design decisions upstream in the project cycle, where they can produce more effective results. Differing from the traditional approach of design-bid-build, this shift results in up streaming certain services that where typically carried out once construction drawings were completed, to when conceptualization and schematic drawings are occurring. By achieving this, certain early phases of design carry a heavier work load, but minimize risk on later services of the project life cycle.
