The design-build approach to project delivery offers the owner the advantage of having a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. Basically, design-build is an alternative to design-bid-build approach where the design and construction are split into separate entities, separate contracts, separate work.
In utilizing a single contract, the approach saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designer and builder into an alliance that fosters collaboration and teamwork. Due to PBG Builders’ history of working cooperatively with some of Middle Tennessee’s most respected architects, they can assist you in identifying the most appropriate architectural firm for your project.
United at the beginning of the project, the design-build team immediately incorporate the building information model, and the LEED certification goals. Some of the advantages of the design-build approach are the following.
Faster project delivery

Better quality in meeting performance needs
Singular responsibility and accountability
