After delivering hundreds of design-build projects, Eclipse’s team of professionals are confident that this methodology, which integrates our architecture, engineering, interior design and construction management services, plus retail consulting if desired, into one agreement, provides the best opportunity for clients to achieve an optimum design, faster execution, higher quality of construction, and lower total program cost.
In fact, Pennsylvania State University conducted a study that showed the design-build method is typically faster and less costly, with higher owner satisfaction ratings, than the design-bid-build method. Insurance figures also record fewer litigation claims on design-build projects.
According to the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA), “Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the design-build team – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion.”
