Design/Build Construction

KDW’s main project delivery method is design/build. This option allows you to hire us, under a single contract, to design and construct the entire project. Implementing a client’s entire building program using our turnkey approach is structured to minimize your risk. This integrated method combines the best practices of design and build to simplify the process and eliminate unnecessary elements. Under the design/build arrangement, design and construction can be overlapped, allowing construction contracts for some portions of the work to be awarded before complete construction documents are finalized. The design/build delivery method relies on a proactive, teaming approach to balance project scope, construction, cost, and schedule, which minimizes conflicts and expedites delivery. It shortens the project schedule and in most cases, saves the client money and headache. As the design/builder, KDW is your single point of contact—from start to finish, instead of the traditional design/bid/build delivery method where the owner enters into separate agreements with the architects, designers, engineers, and contractors.

Clients who want to reduce their overall project delivery time, ensure schedule and cost parameters, control their risk, or need an early cost commitment are turning to this proven delivery system.

In association with our industry partners, we offer the following design/build services:

» Land Due Diligence

» Deed Restriction Coordination

» Feasibility and Economic Analysis

» Market Analysis

» Entitlement (Zoning) Process Assistance

» Government Coordination

» Pro Forma Development

» Budget Development and Administration

» Strategic Planning

» Conceptual Estimating

» Design Coordination

» Scheduling

» Accounting and Cost Control

» Financial Assistance

» Construction Management

» Facility Inspections

» Subcontractor Prequalification

» Project Close-out

» Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Planning

Advantages of KDW's
design/build services

» Single contract = single point of communication and responsibility

» One combined payment for services

» No management of multiple contracts, vendors or invoices

» Upfront understanding of drive-out price

» Development services included in design/build contract

» Turnkey, time-saving design & build process

» Expedited project start and project delivery

» Time-saving overlap of design and construction

» Escalation and rising cost mitigation

» High-quality results, with minimal owner’s risk

Detailed benefits of the design/build approach include:

• Single point of contact. With design/build, an owner has a single point of contact that helps minimize the owner’s risk and responsibilities. The owner purchases a complete package of services, including design, construction, and facility training.

• Reduced project cost and delivery time. According to some estimates, delivery time can be reduced dramatically from inception to completion by using the design/build approach. The design/build team gives an owner guarantee of schedule and price. Savings accrue through a reduction in delivery time and matching owner budget to design and construction costs. On-site activities can begin earlier because of staged construction packages. Also, identification of early-purchased “long-lead” equipment is a major advantage in reducing overall delivery schedules. There is no need to advertise, evaluate bids, and award construction, which further reduces schedule pressure and saves dollars.

• Innovative solutions. Designers and contractors create a partnership to work together more creatively to solve design and construction problems. In addition, members are contractually teamed and typically have a greater incentive to develop the best solutions for the project.
