BENEFITS TO YOU
Completed about 30% faster than other construction methods, design-build enables projects to develop organically, allowing design, engineering, and construction phases to overlap and influence each other. Pre-construction can be started before all design details are finalized, allowing projects to begin (and end) earlier than possible with traditional procurement methods.
Napier-Reid answers your wishes for a single point of responsibility in an attempt to reduce project risks and overall costs. As such, you don’t need to manage multiple contracts with different consultants and contractors for the same project. In addition, a single contract means that issues of cost, schedule, quality, responsibility and risk management are clearly spelled out in one document.
Design-build reduces costs an average of about 6%. Because designers and builders collaborate throughout all stages of construction, they are constantly working to choose the best, most cost-effective solutions and construction methods.
Under the design-build approach, Napier-Reid will provide you a competitive bid based upon a set of project performance requirements or specifications. Napier-Reid becomes your turn-key solution provider, who is responsible for both design and construction.
From a practical perspective, the design and construction will be integrated from the very early stages of the project. This integration provides the opportunity for considerable interaction and discourse between the engineer and the contractor during the design phase. As a result, Napier-Reid will be able to commence construction with the understanding of how the design has progressed and how it is proceeding with the potential to save both time and cost.
By bringing all project stakeholders together in a single contract, the design-build approach helps foster a more successful partnership. As such, Napier-Reid addresses process design and project construction requirements within the budget and schedule parameters, resulting in less potential for project escalation. Also, Napier-Reid can implement a fast-track approach, starting construction before the total design is complete. This is particularly important if you require the delivery of a cost-effective and quality facility on a reduced schedule.
