TIMBERS Building Co. fulfills many project needs with a design/build approach to construction. A design/build construction process allows for the formation of a development “team” – a distinct advantage ensuring the timely and consistent standards of construction quality, supplying services from initial conceptual plans, through design and engineering, through procurement and into actual construction.
As part of a design/build contract, TIMBERS will work with you to organize an Owner, Architect-Builder team, beginning with the design phase. Working with your architect, or an architect chosen by TIMBERS, we together, create the optimum environment to ensure your desired results. Under this model, we serve as your representative and take on the responsibility of getting the bids in, soliciting prices, and forming the development “team” to build the project. A most important feature of the design/build team approach is the opportunity to save up to 25 percent of project costs.
More than 66 percent of all work done in the construction industry today is now awarded on a negotiated basis – by contrast to 33 percent of the work only 25 years ago. According to McGraw Hill, 1995 was the first year that more contracts were let on a design/build basis than a plan and spec basis.
