Design / Build is a method to deliver a project in which a single entity contracts the design and construction services. This method changes the traditional sequence of work by creating a single point of contact and responsibility. Additionally, it helps reduce risks and overall costs.
The Design-Build Advantage
Faster Delivery — collaborative project management means faster completion of work with fewer problems.
Cost Savings — team integration focuses on efficiency and innovation.
Better Quality — design-builders meet performance needs, not minimum design requirements, often developing innovations to deliver a better project.
Singular Responsibility — one entity is held accountable for cost, schedule, and performance.
Reduced Risk — the design-build team assumes additional risk.
Merrell Building realizes that every builder has a different vision for your project. So, how do you know the final product is going to look the way you pictured it?
Every kitchen and bathroom remodeling project includes 3D designs. Therefore, you know exactly what your finished product will look like. 3D rendering techniques empower you with a stronger, more precise visualization of your space.
Architectural Design Plans
Alternatively, on larger projects, such as home additions or whole-house renovations, detailed drawings are a must.
For this reason, one of our on-staff architects will help with the planning. Undoubtedly, this added level of detail planning helps catch mistakes and provide a more accurate estimate. Architectural & 3D rendering improves communication between us, as a design-build contractor and you, as our client. Together, we can consider different design ideas, discuss potential problems, and coming up with even better ideas.
This level of precision, in the beginning, makes the process more efficient by reducing unexpected changes and mistakes. Importantly, this is something that also helps you stay within budget and on schedule!
Before any construction begins, you and our team meet for a pre-construction walk-through. At that time, we discuss an initial schedule, working hours, material storage, hauling off debris, and other important items. Additionally, clients are provided with their “To-Do” list. This details the client’s responsibilities including due dates for material selections and our preferred vendor information. We connect with well-respected companies to supply our clients with top-notch, quality materials. Our team exclusively works with suppliers who have consistent high-quality products and excellent customer service.
