DesignBuild Solution

The most effective and most popular method used to deliver construction projects is the design-build approach. This approach means that one entity, the design-builder, enters into a single contract with the owner to provide both design and construction services.

The benefits of sole-source responsibility for both design and construction include:

  • Greater cost efficiencies with fewer change orders
  • Earlier knowledge of total project costs
  • Shared responsibility for the design, budget and schedule
  • Quicker project delivery through superior collaboration

Marvinbuild dedicated team works with you from the beginning to end of your construction project.

This collaborative and vertically-integrated team works with you every step of the way to ensure the project stays within budget and on schedule. The team members, including architects, project managers, engineers, drafting technicians, project estimators, and construction management professionals, all utilize the same four-phase project delivery system process.

We developed the design-build process with our customer in mind, as it enables us to deliver projects that meet your scope, schedule, and budget. This alleviates stress, eliminates time loss, and ultimately reduces the overall project cost, as our design fees are nominal and included as part of the construction package.
