Experience and Attention to Detail
In concept, the Design/Build process combines architectural, engineering and construction services within one contractual relationship with an owner. Northpoint works closely with each client taking great care to seamlessly integrate all critical project elements into a successful finish product that consistently meets/exceeds client expectations. We’re with you from the beginning, helping search for an appropriate building site or maximizing the use of an existing location, exploration of various design concepts with associated budgets and schedules, and of course the final design and construction of your building. We take great pride in our ongoing reputation and success with the Design/Build approach, and will endeavor to support your needs from start to finish.
Here are a few benefits of the Design/Build approach:
Reduced exposure to cost increases (change orders) during construction because the designer and builder work together from project inception and share the responsibility for meeting program requirements as a team.
Accelerated project delivery because the designer and builder work simultaneously allowing the construction to begin before the design is fully complete. For example, the foundation and building shell can be erected at the same time the interior finishes are being finalized.
Owner’s exposure to conflicts are reduced due to the single-source contractual agreement with the designer and builder, where they work as allies to mutually serve the owner’s interest to ensure the construction and building process goes smoothly.
