What is New Jersey Design-Build?
Design-build is a methodology that has gained a lot of popularity in the United States and elsewhere in New Jersey over the past decade and a half. The concept relies on a single contract between the design-build team and the project owner. In other words, a single team works together from start to finish on a construction project.
Why New Jersey Design-Build Is Better
Design-Build methodology provides for project delivery under a single contract inclusive of both design and construction services. The contract price is typically a fixed number based on specific allowances and options selected by the homeowner. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork.
