How a Commercial Design/Build Company Saves you Money

A design/build company is pretty self-explanatory – it’s a construction company that offers both designing and building services. Design/Build is a relatively modern service that construction companies offer in order to save time, money, and stress throughout the process of their customers’ commercial projects. Let’s take a closer look at how hiring this type of commercial construction company can save you money!

How a Commercial Design/Build Company Saves you Money


Lower Job Costs

Every part of your construction project is bundled into the estimate provided by your design/build company. You won’t find yourself running around trying to hire different professionals for each particular job – a singular design/build company does it all.

Independent design companies may charge more for their services if that is all they offer, and the same goes for companies who limit their services to construction only. Bundling those services together saves the commercial construction company time and money, lowering your job cost.

Quicker Delivery

With everyone working together, the project moves along much quicker than with a traditional process. There isn’t much waiting on one technician or another, as coordination is key to the design/build method. This coordination allows for a smooth and quick transition from phase to phase, and what saves you time ends up saving you money too.

Less Mistakes

The design/build technicians will be the sole showrunners of your commercial project, and will have full accountability along the way. Because they are a closely-bound group who coordinates with one another openly, there is a lower risk of something going wrong between the different aspects and stages of your project. Less mistakes means less money and time required to make repairs or adjustments.

Here are some other ways that hiring a design/build company can benefit you:

  • You will likely have a direct line of communication with the owner of the company, allowing for a more personal experience.
  • Studies show that hiring a design/build construction company can save you up to 25% on commercial projects.
  • The cost of your project will be established early on, meaning you’ll be able to get the construction or build phase going sooner than with a traditional process.

Northstar did a great job at a commercial building I own. He soundproofed a large 3 car commercial garage and took care of some draining issues, by installing a 15’ drain and diverting the water away from the building. His estimate was very fair and he completed the work on time. I would recommend him highly .
