The Role of Design/Build Contractors

Design/build is a construction methodology by which one entity — the design/build contractor — manages the entire project and serves as the client’s single point of contact from beginning to end. This process represents a departure from the traditional project delivery system where the client hires a separate company for each phase.

The design/build contractor’s responsibilities include:

  • Design: During this project phase, the contractor generates site use and development plans, creates conceptual and working building plans, and develops the building design for the client’s approval.
  • Build: The contractor also serves as the construction manager, which involves supplying skilled laborers and hiring subcontractors while ensuring the work meets the client’s specifications.
