The traditional method of renovating a commercial building includes two major yet separate steps. These are design and construction. In the past, people had to hire two separate companies for each process. Today, companies offer a complete design/build service.
The term design/build means that an architect or other professional will design the structure. The build aspect of the term refers to the construction team that will put up or renovate the building.
In recent years the practice of hiring one company for both steps of the renovation process has become more popular. This is because hiring workers from the same company has many benefits. Firstly, businesses will only need to deal with one contract when they are hiring a contractor. Previously, companies would have to sign two contracts. It is also worth noting that businesses will not have to shop around for two separate companies. Dealing with one design/build contractor means that the project manager will save a considerable of time.
Another benefit of using a design/build service is that the contractor will be present from the beginning of the project to the finish. This means that someone who knows the details of the budget, engineering requirements and design will be around at all times. This will ensure that the workers will stick to the budget and design plan. Hiring contractors that offer these two services alongside one another means that the renovations will be completed in a timely manner. This is due to the fact that companies will not have to waste their time finding another company and arranging a start date.
