One of the initial decisions you’ll have to make on your construction project is the project delivery method you want to follow, whether it is the Design-Build method or the Design-Bid-Build construction method.

Design-Build

The Design-Build approach is the most popular choice for owners. This approach involves communicating to us your concept and budget. We will then work with you to design and construct your building using the most cost-effective materials and methods possible – essentially making Hamann responsible for your project, taking the lead as the main point of contact.

Design-Bid-Build

In short, the Design-Bid-Build approach is based on the project owner first hiring an architect/design team to develop plans and specification documents. Hamann will then take a look at those documents and give you a competitive price on your project.

There are a few potential risks owners need to be aware of when choosing this method.
– Cost overruns can stem from the builders not being involved early enough in the design process.
– Hiring a firm that may not be qualified or experienced for the job might result in additional charges and construction delays.
– As the project owner you will need to be much more heavily involved throughout the build process and serve as the point of contact between multiple vendors.
