One Stop Accountability = Greater Project Control

Design-Build is one of the most common procurement models used in construction today. At its core is the requirement that a single source – or ‘design builder’ – be placed in charge of both the design and construction of a project. This requirement positively impacts the time required for these two phases as project scheduling can begin before the design is finalized. Design and construction done concurrently also allows for earlier establishment of project costs.

The owner additionally benefits with an increased level of collaboration between themselves, the designer and the contractor, as design changes can be made while receiving real-time understanding of resulting cost and schedule implications.

Value Engineering for Innovative Problem Solving

Maple Reinders has delivered countless projects under the Design Build delivery model in both our Buildings and Civil sectors. One of the greatest advantages that we provide clients through this method is our value engineering approach.

As the design solution is prepared, and in conjunction with the Owner, multiple facets of value delivery are reviewed and tested with the goal of providing the best quality and constructability for the lowest cost, without compromising design.

Progressive Design-Build

PDB is a qualifications-based process wherein an Owner “progresses” towards a design and contract price with the team. The selected Design Builder then delivers the project in two phases:

1. Preliminary/Preconstruction Services
2. Final Design and Construction Services

For more information on PDB please visit Design-Build Institute Of America

More recently, Maple Reinders is bidding work under the Progressive Design Build (PDB) model.
