Design Build/General Contracting

Iris Slide 4-10

By working with our design team at the beginning of a project, we can assure that budgets and timing restrictions are kept in mind throughout the entire construction process. The traditional approach for construction projects consists of the appointment of a designer on one side, and the appointment of a contractor on the other side. The Design Build procurement route changes the traditional sequence of work. It answers the client’s wishes for a single-point of responsibility in an attempt to reduce risks and overall costs. Our team encourages dialogue between its clients, architects and subcontractors.  Among the many benefits of design-build are:

 

*         Design and construction services under one contract

*         Cost and schedule are controlled by a single entity

*         Typically best method for fast-track projects

*         High quality design delivered economically

*         Subcontractor expertise can be obtained in design process

 

Iris Construction Services incorporates its Design Build expertise into many of its construction projects. While we are not an exclusive Design Build contractor, we can also cater our General Contracting skills to a project that may already be designed. The benefit of our expertise allows us to constantly communicate with the architect of challenges that may come up in the field that require a creative approach or solution.
