Pre-Construction & Design Assist

Santa Clarita Pre-Construction & Design Assist

Design Assist vs. Design-Bid-Build 

While looking into design and construction services for your commercial project, you have likely seen mentions of the design-bid-build and design-assist models. Seeing these terms, you might ask: “What are they, and how are they different?” 

In the design-bid-build model:

  • A property owner will independently hire a team of architects and engineers to complete a building design plan. Then, they will bid the design to a general contractor. 

In the design-assist model:

  • A property owner will hire a designer and general contractor simultaneously, allowing them to work closely together during a project’s pre-construction phases. As a result, the whole construction team is heavily involved in the design process, from the construction manager to subcontractors and suppliers. Intertex can assist the owner in finding the right architect and engineers for the right job, ensuring a comprehensive and seamless collaboration throughout the entire construction project.

At Intertex General Contractors, we are known for providing personalized solutions and finding ways to maximize the value our customers get from their projects. Our design-assist services are one special way we have accomplished these things. 

By collaborating with hired design teams, we deliver highly functional, time and cost efficient, and value-creating results. If you are starting a construction project, do not hesitate to reach out and get our team involved.

The Benefits of the Design-Assist Method

The pitfall of the design-bid-build method is the absence of the construction team during pre-construction. This often leads to designs that are infeasible or over budget. Also, because the process is linear, it can be difficult or expensive to revisit and alter a building’s plan. 

In contrast, the design-assist method has many benefits:

  • Project Continuity: It makes moving through necessary project phases easier, as it unites the different teams from the start.
  • Cost Efficiency: You can get a clearer understanding of the price of a project early on. You can also avoid expensive setbacks, consult trade specialists about budget-friendly material and construction options, and get competitive pricing for subcontracting.
  • Time Efficiency: The construction team can be prepared to start the project’s building phase without delays. You can also identify and resolve design issues before they become time-consuming, helping construction move ahead seamlessly.
  • Higher Quality Design: You can capitalize on the collective expertise of engineers, architects, general contractors, and trade specialists for building design. This often yields more functional and cost-effective building plans.
