Whether you have an apartment due for renovation or planning to build a new home from scratch, you will have to choose between a design-build approach and the traditional approach. However, our custom home builders believe that you’re better off going with the former approach because for the following reasons.
By going for the traditional approach, you’ll have to hire an architect, contractor and designer on three separate instances. Because the three may not be familiar with working together, coordinating with each other (and you) can be arduous. With a design-build company, a single, more coherent team works throughout the entire process, with everyone always on the same page.
The design-build approach is also a more cost-efficient approach because of how much you can cut down on logistic expenses. There’s no going back and forth between separate agencies because design-build firms are located at a single physical address. Sourcing the materials is also more convenient as both designers and builders will use the same inventory to check which options are available.
In studies that compare the merits of design-build versus traditional construction, the results all show that the design-build method is significantly cheaper. Due to the quicker turn-around time and the absence of separate professional fees, these studies conclude that you can reduce your renovation costs by as much as 6%.
Faster Turnaround Times
Aside from eliminating the time spent going from one firm to another in a traditional approach, the design-build approach also helps speed up the process. Build-on-your-lot services work faster because materials are shipped faster, decisions are made quicker and coordinating to deal with any problems happens sooner.
