Design-Build is a nationally recognized custom home and commercial building construction delivery method integrating architectural design, value engineering and construction services into a collaborative, single-source project management service.
Under this service arrangement, R.P. Valois assumes total leadership responsibility by assembling a team of design and construction professionals in a cooperative environment to carry out all phases of the project. Over the years, we have proudly taken the Design-Build method to even greater levels of client satisfaction through constant refinement and accountability measures. Advantages to building via this approach include:
Improved Communications & Accountability: Instead of interacting with a general contractor, architect, designers and consultants on issues and concerns, clients gain direct and immediate access by dealing with R.P. Valois. Besides averting problems, a one-point clear communication channel allows added flexibility and quicker project delivery.
Single-Source Efficiencies: Construction projects revolve around the daily management of countless activities and resources. As one might surmise, the single-source feature of the Design-Build concept naturally lends itself to obtaining maximum efficiencies throughout the project— efficiencies that save general contractors valuable time and the client considerable money.
Value Engineering: Construction industry studies reveal Design-Build projects can reduce the probability of budget overruns by a remarkable 45%. Such improvement is attributable to our ability to identify project saving opportunities derived from proprietary value engineering techniques; construction methodology; precise cost accounting and stringent purchasing procedures.
