Design / Build

In today’s competitive construction market, there are almost as many project delivery methodologies as projects, but tailoring your choice to the individual specifications and circumstances will help ensure success. Key factors dictating a particular type of delivery method include budget, time restraints, risk, and level of quality.

Design/build is a process which gives the client a single point of responsibility and reduces overall risk and costs of the project. David J. Cupido Construction Ltd. has developed relationships with design partners, but will also work with the client’s chosen partners. The design/build delivery method is a shift from the more traditional design/bid/build delivery of construction contracts. Successful design/build projects offer an owner many benefits that add value to a project.

Using the design/build delivery, Cupido Construction Ltd. coordinates your team, leaving you, the owner, free to focus on the project’s scope and general decision making. This leads to a higher quality project that better suits your needs.

Having David J. Cupido Construction Ltd. combine design and construction quality, cost, and schedule into a single point of responsibility helps the design/build team avoid potential adversarial relationships that could arise under traditional design/bid/build contracts, while at the same time fostering a partnership between team members, which in turn adds value to the project.

Construction specifications can be reviewed throughout the design process by all members of the design/build team. This leads to effective value engineering ideas created by the architect, contractor and engineer, working together to maximize design and functionality while adhering to budgetary and scheduling concerns.

This approach produces the best balance of cost, function, efficiency, maintainability, and delivery for a particular project. Cupido Construction Ltd.’s design/build team works together to form a complete set of construction documents; no matter how small or large the project may be. Under the traditional design/bid/build delivery, the owner is responsible for providing complete documents to the contractor. This allows the owner to make changes, request additional value engineering, or add scope to a project before the substantial design is complete.
