If you’re not familiar with design build, you will be soon! Design build is an incredibly important branch of the construction and architecture industries. Heidan Construction specializes in design build. Because it’s one of our strongest features as a company, we want to tell you all about it. So, what is design build? Why is design build important? Let’s take a look.
The Marriage of Two Trades
In short, design build is the combination of two incredibly important trades: architectural design and building construction. If you hadn’t already guessed what it was, you probably feel it’s pretty obvious now! After all, it’s right there in the name.
The way these two trades are combined is in the beginning to end process of creating a building. What makes this type of work unique from the traditional building process is that the same team does all parts of the process. Instead of trading off with another set of professionals, Heidan Construction creates a design for your home or office and then sees it through to the end.
What makes this system so much different than the traditional structure of a building production team? Well, primarily, it’s in its efficiency and results. With a traditional team, it’s more likely that the design and construction teams are completely separate. Most likely, they’re not even part of the same company. While this traditional approach does mean each team is more “specialized,” it also means they’re disconnected.
Actually, if you take a closer look at that elusive “specialization,” you begin to see why it’s not so superior after all. A design team that only does design will be limited by their conceptual knowledge. A construction team that only does construction will be limited by their practical knowledge. When one of these teams hits a bump in the road of their designing or building process, they will use the knowledge hallmark to their specialty to solve it. That approach is not the most efficient, and can end with less than perfect results.
With design build, on the other hand, you have a team of people who specialize in both the conceptual and practical aspects of building. This fluency in both major steps of the building process means outside-the-box solutions and a finished building that goes above and beyond traditional standards. So, what is design build? Design build is how we achieve architectural excellence.
