What is Design/Build
The design-build process is a simplified approach to construction involving one unified team to work together on the erecting of a building, from start to finish. With ultimate collaboration between architects, builders, engineers, estimators, and the building owner, incredible things can happen.
Traditional vs Design/Build Process
Benefits of Design Build
The benefits of the design-build method far outweigh those of any of the alternatives. Because the entire project is completed under one entity, design-builds essentially skip a step in the process of building construction. In traditional methods, the owner must manage two separate contracts between the project designer and the contractor, as well as allow extra time for the contractors to bid on the project and establish estimates and costs. At Boychuk, we have a complete in-house team, allowing architects to coordinate with the other team members. In this way, the design-build method effectively eliminates unforeseen or unnecessary costs and streamlines the process for owners and design-builders alike.

Safety is Paramount
Regardless of the method of construction used, safety should always be paramount on a job site. At Boychuk, we ensure all of our employees receive regular and relevant safety training, and our policies and procedures are up-to-date with current accident trends, fatalities, and causation factors.
Sit down with us to discuss your project in an initial consultation. We can begin to plan your project based on the type of building and structure you require. We will review your business, industry, goals, vision, facility needs, and financial situation.
Project design sets the stage for a successful project. Our architects and design team will begin to review critical information regarding the structural systems, building interiors, and site assessments. Because our architects are in-house, they can work together with all other key team members to add value and innovation to the project scope.
With a design in place, our team can put together a set budget that fits within your cost allowance. We will produce initial estimates and then a final maximum price. We only charge you what the project actually costs. With all members of the team under one roof, you can be assured that the budget will be accurate and reasonable.
Permits & Approvals
By acquiring all necessary permits and approvals, we eliminate one more thing from your plate. From research into zoning laws to development and building permit acquisition, we simplify the process of construction. This step is one more way we put our clients first.
At this stage of the process, while traditional build methods would require bidding for a contractor, we move straight to the construction phase. We even begin preliminary steps while the design is still being finalized. This overlap allows for rapid delivery of the project completion while still adhering to a high standard of quality in both materials and workmanship. Following construction, we will perform a walkthrough and supply you with any additional literature and documentation to set you up for success.
