Design-build is a construction project delivery system where the design and construction aspects are contracted for with a single entity known as the design-builder or design-build contractor. This system is used to minimize the project risk for an owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and the construction phase of a project. By being involved up front Baldwin Construction Company can provide budgets and maintain them during the design phase eliminating unexpected costs. Where the design-builder is the contractor, the design professionals are typically retained by the contractor. This is one of the oldest forms of construction since developing from the “Master Builder” approach. The Design Build system enables Baldwin Construction Company to save the owner both time and money.
