1. The Process
The design/build process partners the builder, design team (architect, engineer), and the owner all under one contract from the very beginning of the project
2. Single Source Accountability
Rather than hiring several contractors and consultants, an owner has just one entity to deal with
3. Value-Engineering
For a contractor to bid on a project, precise details relating to the construction methods and materials must be provided to avoid ambiguity and to facilitate an "apples-to-apples" comparison of bids.
