Design-Build

From concept to completion: explore our Design-Build capabilities.

Design-build brings design and construction together under various configurations, in order to overcome traditional obstacles involving time, construction costs and flexibility to innovate.

 

Backed by over two decades of experience in and out of Puerto Rico, you can trust DDD to become fully engaged in project coordination, constructability, and delivery under  budget, providing an unpalleled experience. With a superior standard of care, DDD can provide the success that clients look for: a project schedule with an improved delivery time and cost savings.

Increased Efficiency

Design-Build services assign the sole responsibility of design and construction activities to one entity. Our clients can rest assured as we reduce the project-based risk and concentrate on the project criteria, while efficiently overseeing the delivery. During this stage, if the owner wishes, DDD helps the owner to asses and create a clear and concise project design criteria.

 

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. This improved project delivery is achieved by re-organizing project phases and design decisions upstream in the project cycle, for more effective results.

Design-Build Advantages

Engaging an experienced Design-Build firms yields a myriad of benefits for the client, owner and other key shareholders:

 

  • There is one source of responsibility for any design or construction project
  • Integrated Decision Process
  • Lean Approach
  • Solutions engineered and “Guaranteed” to fit your budget
  • No Change Orders
  • Savings as a result of the “fast-track” nature of the process
  • Sustainable Solutions that decreased Life Cycle Costs
  • Leaner Process

Keys to Success

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 a 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 upstreaming certain services that were 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 workload, but minimize risk on later services of the project life cycle.
