Services are provided at the beginning of a construction project before the actual construction begins. These services are aimed at meeting a client's requirements in order to produce a functionally and financially viable project. Pre-construction services include a comprehensive and detailed plan review for developing clear understanding of project purpose and vision, preparation of preliminary budget, reviews for constructability, and development of schedule.
DB Services bring together architecture and construction into one entity which is responsible for complete project delivery. Design-build projects often move more quickly due to overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project. This system is often used to give the owner better control over time and budget, as well as provide a single source of responsibility for all of the work on the project.
With responsibility for overall coordination of the construction project, the general contractor provides all material, labor, equipment and services necessary throughout all stages of construction. They are responsible for day-to-day oversight of the construction site to ensure quality standards are exceeded and communication for all involved is collaborative and comprehensive.
