As an alternative to supplying owners with a construction estimate based on architectural drawings and specifications, MAPP offers design-build services. By working with your selected design team from the design phase of a project to its construction, we help assure that the costs of the project stay within your budget—and that the integrity of the design is still maintained through a close working relationship with a third-party architect or designer.
Additional advantages of a design-build approach may include:
Single point of contact – With one source of accountability, owners won’t have to act as an intermediary between the contractor and architect/designer.
Better communication – With “design” and “build” professionals on the same team, potential problems can be uncovered sooner and communication among all parties is enhanced.
Shorter schedules – Because you start without a lengthy formal bid process and combine your contractor and design team, time efficiencies can be realized.
Quality control – A unified team removes ambiguities about materials and specs, leaving the architect/designer and contractor focused on delivering the client’s exact vision.
