Design-build construction should always have an architect involved in the process. The modular industry has many companies that provide services, but if you want a project to flow more efficiently make sure they have a licensed architect on staff.
What is design-build
Design-build is the process of choosing a team that can provide preconstruction design, general contracting site work, and also the modular manufacturing. There are companies that “team” with 3rd party outside firms, but this can create a conflict of interest or often times results in miscommunication. Some modular companies may try to convince you that a structural engineer is sufficient, but unfortunately when you choose design-build modular construction you will need an all encompassing team that can facilitate elevations, design, structural, permits, property setbacks, retention, EPA, and other site issues that can arise.
Design-build allows our clients to collaborate on every aspect of the design and construction process so that you are not paying twice for architectural re-design or value engineering. By knowing your budget, schedule, and design alternatives as you progress forward with your design-build project every team member is able to make well educated and informed decisions for a better outcome.
