Design-Build is, without a doubt, the best approach to new home construction. It is a collaborative approach bringing together you (the client), your builder, and your design team at the very beginning; before an architect begins drawing and sometimes even before you choose the land on which to build. The Design-Build approach explores your desires, needs, and your budget before all else. Additionally, it holds everyone accountable for meeting your design objectives and doing so within the budget you set.
General Contractors (Builders) are usually contacted by you, the client, after your architect has completed the design for your custom home.
Project Management, or what some call Construction Management, is a relationship between the Owner and the Management Company that gives the Owner more control over where materials are sourced and which subcontractors will be invited to bid.
