What is Design and Construct?
Design and construct is a method of project delivery in which the owner hires one contractor to provide design and construction services. The contractor is responsible for both the integrity of the design as well as the quality of the installation.

Traditional phases of construction project include:

Schematic Design
Design Development
Construction Documentation
Construction Administration

The design and construct process combines these stages. By combining the stages, construction can proceed before the design is completely finished. This allows for ordering items with long lead times, and locking in the prices of commodities that can rise dramatically. Design adjustments can quickly be made when necessary.

Advantages of Design and Construct
Design and construct method is becoming increasingly popular. It is attractive to owners and contractors for a number of reasons.

Singular Responsibility – Since a single entity is
  responsible for both design and construction, there is a single point of responsibility for quality, cost, and schedule adherence. This improves risk management for the project. The design and construct contractor is expected to produce an end product that fulfils aesthetic and functional objectives, and also meets budget and schedule constraints.

Quality – With the traditional "Tender" process, there is
  pressure to be the lowest bidder to secure the contract. Sometimes quality slips, and corners are cut so that the low bidder can find a way to make a reasonable profit. With design and Construct, the contractor warrants to the owner that the design documents are complete and virtually free from error.

Cost Savings – When a design and construct
  contractor is designing, he does so with the final product in mind. He is familiar with the specific materials needed, and the labour costs involved with installing them. Keeping in mind techniques, methods, code issues, and potential shortcuts can add tremendous value to the project.

Time Savings – This is one of the main attractions of
  the design and Construct approach to owners. Because design and construction are overlapped, total project time can be significantly reduced. Design and Construct is ideal for "fast track" projects. The resulting time savings translates into lower costs and earlier utilization of the completed facility.

Reduced Administrative Burden - The owner is not
  required to invest time and money coordinating and arbitrating between designer and builder. Rather, he is able to focus on timely decision making.
