Southern Vermont Design Build Construction

West Dummerston Builders is always looking for new and innovative ways to interact with clients and improve the level of service we provide. One of the ways in which we have accomplished that goal is through our design build services. What exactly is design build?

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. Design-build is also known as design/construct and single-source responsibility.

How Design Build Saves You Money: A potential new home owner who decides on the D/B approach will save money in several ways.

$ No separate costs for an independent designer

$ All subcontractors are involved in the building process. This enhances work flow, greatly reduces waste, and saves labor costs

$ Provides the potential home owner with a realistic 3D rendering of the environment pre-construction. Allowing you to make changes that would have resulted in costly changes down the road

Design Build Advantages: offers several advantages to both the contractor and the potential new home owner

–  Build team can see 2D plans and 3D renderings during the construction process. This can help the team share your vision for the finished product and adapt to job site changes accordingly

– 3D modeling allows the homeowner to be intimately involved with the design process. Paint colors, furniture selections, and lighting choices are just a few of the details that can be incorporated into a design build to help the homeowner make informed design choices in real time

– Allows the build team to plan a more efficient home through the selection of green and sustainable materials and advanced construction methodologies. When the designer is the builder, these decisions are made up front and allow them to prepare cost benefit analysis for your review prior to construction.
