What is Design + Build?

October 15, 2018

Would you choose design and build over the conventional system of architect and general interior fit-out contractor?

Before we even choose between the two options. What do you mean by “Design and Build” anyway?

It’s about time that we understand why the design and build process is the way forward for the interior fit out sector in Philippines. It is evident that the design and build process is gaining momentum to become the leading project delivery system in the Philippine fit-out industry.

The design and build process is a modification from the more traditional bid-design-bid-build delivery of interior fit out contracts. Design and build projects are commonly set by a single entity, who is in charge of the design and is also responsible to manage and build the project. Successful design-build projects offer the owner/client many benefits that add optimal solutions to a project.

As the Philippines continuously marks itself as one of the fastest developing country in Asia, the business opportunities of the interior design and fit out industry is thriving as demand for office, retail spaces continue to grow, not to mention the fast development of infrastructure. Alongside this growth has come increased competition, owners and employers finding themselves challenged with meeting a glut of design, sustainability, cost, time and functionality specifications.

Improved Project Quality

Design and build interior fit-outs inherently provides higher quality than the separate, often conflicting architect / designer vs. contractor approach. Because the design and build firm has responsibility for performance, it is motivated to build with quality objectives without losing the essence of the design.

Improved communications

Since the design parameters and budgetary goals of a project are being developed simultaneously it allows effective execution and communication between all parties through a single-point-of-contact. Understanding the parameters of a project amongst designers and contractors is a crucial step in this process. With everyone working together the owner has greater access to the project team throughout its development.
