Design-Build is a method of project delivery in which the project owner and the Design-Build team at Patriot Development & Construction (PDC) – work under a single contract to provide complete design and construction services.
One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion.
Design-Build is an alternative to the traditional hard bid project delivery method. Under the hard bid approach, design and construction services are split into separate entities, separate contracts, separate work that the project owner needs to manage. This separation of entities can oftentimes cause tension and finger-pointing through the construction process, which most often ends up with change orders and increased costs for the project owner.
