The Design/Build process allows for the entire team (Owner, Architect, Contractor) to collaboratively develop a program and design with the ultimate responsibility of project delivery falling on the General Contractor. This process assures time and money savings, creates a “win win” partnership environment, and reduces risks during construction.
These benefits, as well as reduced owner's liability for design, and continuous analyses of constructability, budget and schedule, make design/build an ideal method for many projects.
"From the multiple bidding stages, through creation of the design/build package, to the close-out of construction, W.E. O’Neil Construction Company demonstrated the highest level of quality and responsiveness on this demanding design build project".
