With contracting and design professionals at the table from the start of the process, Jenkins-Essex has been completing Design-Build projects for decades. While the Design-Build method’s popularity in the construction industry has been growing, especially since the early 2000s, our firm has been managing such projects for more than 40 years.
When partnering with Jenkins-Essex in a Design-Build project, the owner manages a single contract rather than managing an architect and contractor separately. One of the clearest benefits to the owner in this situation is that a single entity is solely responsible for delivery of the project, which reduces the owner’s risk. As a Design-Build team, we are able to enhance budget control, accelerate construction schedules as well as prevent discrepancies between the architectural and construction teams.
