JA Smith & Company offers clients the Design-Build function if a tenant is looking to start up their business or expand/relocate their current operation. Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – JA Smith & Company – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services.
We would control the whole process from start to finish by first meeting with the project owner to discuss ideas, then preparing preliminary designs & budgets for construction, then walking them through the plan approval and permitting process, and finally managing the construction project. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion.
Project Owner Benefits – The Design-Build Advantage
Faster Delivery — collaborative project management means work is completed faster with fewer problems.
Cost Savings — an integrated team is geared toward efficiency and innovation.
Better Quality — JA Smith & Company would meet performance needs, not minimum design requirements, often developing innovations to deliver a better project than initially imagined.
Singular Responsibility — one entity is held accountable for cost, schedule and performance.
Decreased Administrative Burden — owners can focus on the project rather than managing disparate contracts.
Reduced Risk — JA Smith & Company assumes additional risk.
Reduced Litigation Claims — by closing warranty gaps owners virtually eliminate litigation claims.
