Design Build

COI offers Design/Build services in cases where the client seeks to contract with a single entity to minimize project risk and reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project. This method allows our clients a single point of contact for all facets of design and construction. COI will assume the responsibility of engaging and contracting with design professionals and assume full responsibility of the design and construction disciplines.

In actuality, there are only minor differences between Design/Build and our most common general contractor delivery method. In both cases COI’s team of professionals are engaged early in the design phase of the project in order to allow for cost control, risk management and client consultation through the design phase. The distinct difference between the two involves the contractual association among the client, contractor and design professional.
