The 5 Biggest Advantages of a Two-Step “Design-Build” Process

There are two primary ways to approach a construction project:

  1. Design-bid-build (three-step process)
  2. Design-build (two-step process)

The design-bid-build process is a traditional project delivery method that involves hiring an architect and contractor separately.

You pay an architect to come up with a design that fits your budget. Then you have contractors bid on your project. Finally, you select a contractor and begin construction.

If you use this delivery method, the architect and contractor will probably not have any direct legal connection — they are entirely independent from each other.

The design-build process, on the other hand, involves hiring a single company to complete the architectural design as well as all the engineering and construction aspects of your future practice.

While the design-build process is less common, it is often the most efficient and effective method of completing a construction project, especially for individuals with little or no experience in the construction industry.

Here are the five biggest advantages of using a design-build process to complete your new dental office…
