INTEGRATED PROJECT DELIVERY
Design/Build construction is an approach that has many benefits and should be considered for your next project. Integrated project delivery is the method in which key stakeholders approach the project together from inception through to completion.
The Design/Build Institute of America promotes the Design/Build model as an ideal platform for IPD, utilizing BIM, lean principles and other synergistic systems to enhance communication, efficiency and project understanding.
The Benefits of Design/Build
The benefits to be gained in utilizing Welliver’s well-designed and professionally managed Design/Build process include the following:
With both design and construction in the hands of the Welliver Project Team, there is a single point of responsibility for quality, cost and schedule adherence. Welliver, as design/builder, is motivated to deliver a successful project by fulfilling multiple parallel objectives, including aesthetic and functional quality, budget and schedule for completion.
Better Control of Quality
The singularized responsibility inherent in Design/Build motivates Welliver to work for high quality and proper project performance. The Owner's requirements and expectations are documented in performance terms and it is the project team’s responsibility to produce results accordingly.
Welliver’s design and construction personnel, working and communicating as a team, evaluate alternative materials and methods efficiently and accurately. Value engineering and constructability are utilized more effectively when the designers and contractors work as one team during the design process.
More Efficient Project Delivery
Design/Build is ideal for the application of "Fast Track" construction needs. By overlapping design and construction to some extent, and by eliminating bidding periods and redesign time, design-build can deliver a project faster than the design-bid-build approach. The resulting timesavings translate to lower costs and earlier utilization of the completed facility for you, the Owner.
