What is Design Build?

Designing and building a project involves an entire team of professionals: contractors, builders, architects, interior designers and that list can grow depending on the project scope. Managing that team is a fulltime job and overwhelming for most. That’s where Design Build comes into play. We help guide you through the entire process, from design to construction, managing the schedule, budget and individuals who will be involved in the process.

Design Build is a process in which we begin working with our clients before the project has been designed. The only thing required is a rough concept. From there we can determine important project details including scheduling, cost and materials of both design and construction phases of the project.

It’s difficult to see the bigger picture when there are so many fine details to contend with. Twin Peaks is a Design Build contractor firm in Vancouver. We help you get through the process by managing the details while never losing sight of the bigger picture, keeping it both on time and on budget.

Design-Build Advantages:

Comprehensive Budget Planning

Being able to determine budget requires experienced professionals who can see the project beyond just the building phase. The Design Build process allows us to not only factor in the costs of labour and materials, but to also understand the potential unexpected financial costs that may occur. This early research into costs allows us to formulate a plan that is feasible and within your means.

Cost Savings

There are many benefits to having your design team and contracting team working together, cost savings being one of the things. Designers and contractors are able to work closely together during the entire project which ensures effective and accurate planning and execution.

Time Savings

No one wants a remodel or construction project to go on longer than needed. Delays can be costly both emotionally and financially. Design Build decreases the time between design and construction. It also saves time by reducing the need for redesigns and additional budgets because alternatives have already been considered and discussed.

Better Communication, Improved Trust

Design Build gives the contractor, designer and client the time to get to know one another and better understand the project at hand. It is important that we fully comprehend your wants and expectations so that we can deliver a final product that you love and that we are proud of. We place a great deal of importance on maintaining a strong and trusted working relationship from the design build phase all the way through to completion.

Design & Construction in One Company

It’s important to have the same team involved with a project from the planning stage. Twin Peaks offers design, renovation and construction services which allows for fluid and open communication and detail-oriented project management. A united team ensures a single source of responsibility, ensuring that the project is on budget, on time and up to quality.
