Design-Build and the Changing Landscape: Then, Now, and What Lies Ahead

Design-Build for interior designers. Is it right for YOU?

There’s that word again…Design-Build! What IS Design-Build exactly and how are today’s firms defining themselves vs. firms of the past in today’s design-architecture-construction landscape? What are today’s consumers expecting when they consider hiring a design-build firm and what are the key pros and cons of transitioning your firm to a fully integrated Interior Design-Build Firm?

 

In THIS webinar, I will be discussing these points and dive head-first into the key concerns and reasons why design-build could be the new standard way of the future!

Here’s a sample slide of how we break down traditional Design-Build methodology.

 

 

This slide illustrates one of the differences in the TRADITIONAL METHOD OF DESIGN BUILD, where the “DESIGNER” (which has typically been the ARCHITECT) is called upon to inform the project as a “separate” entity within the project process. Typically, in traditional methods, the “designer” (or Architect) is then complete and not involved in the CONSTRUCTION process.

Today, with the new design-build methodology, DESIGNERS (now mostly qualified and skilled Interior Designers) are more fully integrated in the project process from concept to completion.  In most cases, the Designer is actually LEADING the project (with design, project management, procurement,  installation, etc., as part of the overall contracted services) from the very beginning to the completion.

 

 

You will also see here in this sample slide, that CONSTRUCTION elements are present at the DESIGN phase which is one of the KEY STRATEGIES to a successful design build project. Having your CONSTRUCTION TEAM PRESENT at the onset of the design-build project allows the DESIGNER to have a wealth of information up front to assist in streamlining the design process, ultimately, saving time and money for the client.
