By far, most Schwisow Construction customers choose the Design-Build method of construction. In this scenario, the owner would hire Schwisow Construction to deliver the construction project from start to finish…from design to the day we hand over the keys. As the contractor, we work very closely with the designer from the beginning, as a team, providing unified project recommendations to fit the Owner's design criteria, schedule and budget. Any changes are addressed by the entire team, leading to collaborative problem-solving and innovation, not excuses or blame-shifting. While single-source contracting is the fundamental difference between design-build and the older traditional methods. Equally important is the culture of collaboration inherent in the design-build process.
Using the traditional method of project delivery, the owner must manage two separate contracts between the designer and contractor. While we successfully complete projects using this method, it all-too-often creates an adversarial relationship between the designer and the contractor, which can make it more difficult to work together to solve issues. But, Schwisow Construction always keeps the best interest of our customer, the project owner, in mind when working to resolve any issues that may arise.
