It is this final puzzle piece that proves to be the elusive component of a construction project that is not built in the Design/Build arrangement. This older model leaves room for a potential disconnect between the customer, the architect, and the builder. This disconnect can apply to both the construction methodology of the project as well as, and very commonly, the actual cost of the project vs. the customer’s budget or cost expectations. This potential issue is where the Design/Build process shines: the design process is driven by the builder’s constant feedback to the home owner and architect regarding the products and systems and their costs.
They are the source of cost overruns, unavoidable delays, and failure to meet client expectations. Superior project planning can help prevent surprises by anticipating potential problems, covering every possible contingency – and developing a plan for next steps to get back on track when the unexpected happens anyway.
