Unlike the “traditional” contracting approach, where an owner commissions an architect or engineer to prepare specifications and separately selects a contractor, design-build is a process whereby one entity performs both design and construction. This approach ensures a single source of responsibility for every aspect of the construction process. In the tradition of master builders of the past – who practiced as architects, engineers and constructors fused into a single cohesive unit, National Builders brings together the key disciplines within a single organization. Under the design-build approach, we assume the risks that traditionally are born by the project owner, including managing and coordinating the design team, mitigating errors and omissions as well as controlling costs, schedule and delays – all which typically save the owner considerable time and money.
National Builders delivers comprehensive, fast track design-build solutions. Working in partnership with our clients, we establish the project cost early and then design and build within the budget. Our design-build philosophy combined with an extensive base of experience, resources and leading edge technology, allow us to offer the full range of facilities planning, design, construction and contract interior fit-out, all at a single point of responsibility.
