Design-Build is the fastest growing and most popular method used to deliver construction projects in the United States. What is design-build? Design-build is when the owner manages only one contract with a single point of responsibility. The designer and contractor work together from the beginning, as a team, providing unified project recommendations to fit the owner’s schedule and budget. Any changes are addressed by the entire team, leading to collaborative problem-solving and innovation.
Offering in-house design services, Garco has been a design-builder since 1978. With the recent increase in demand for large, complex projects using the design-build delivery method, Garco has able to utilize more than 40 years of experience and expertise in design-build to partner with owners, architects, engineers and trade partners to deliver some amazing projects.
This delivery method works well with our collaborative partnership approach to construction projects. We’ve developed strong relationships with leaders in the architecture and engineering communities to foster a solid foundation for design-build teams. Our field crews also add value early in the design process by reviewing the drawings and specifications with the design management team and offering effective constructability solutions that lead to improved efficiencies. Since 2003, Garco has successfully delivered more than 30 large projects as the design-builder.
