Workers moving structural steel. Design-Build

The design-build model at LeChase focuses on bringing together our design and construction professionals in a collaborative environment in order to streamline your project. 


By overlapping the design phase and construction phase of the project, LeChase is often able to reduce the delivery schedule.  Our clients also realize the benefit of one single point of responsibility for the delivery of their project.

LeChase takes full responsibility for quality, cost and schedule. By managing multiple, parallel objectives, including aesthetic and functional quality as well as budget and schedule adherence, we free the owner to focus on timely decision making, and scope and needs definition, rather than coordinating between designer and builder.

Benefits of Design-Build:

The sole source responsibility inherent in design-build provides the basis for quality and proper project performance. This model drastically reduces conflicts between designer and builder over quality issues.

Cost Savings
Design and construction personnel, working and communicating as a team, evaluate alternative materials and methods efficiently and accurately. Value engineering and constructability are implemented from the beginning of the project. A 1997 Penn State study that evaluated the traditional design-bid-build, Construction Management at risk and design-build services found that the design-build model resulted in project delivery with the most cost savings.

Time Savings
Design-build is the fastest project delivery method. Because the design and construction phases overlap, construction of the project can start before all systems are totally designed. Long bidding periods and redesign are eliminated. Time savings reduce labor costs and allow for earlier utilization of the completed facility.
