As projects become more complex, many owners and developers prefer the simplicity of a design-build approach. Shockey recommends an early alliance between the project owner and an experienced design-build partner. Even if your project is just an idea, it’s not too early to get started.
With a design-build model, Shockey works directly with your designer (under a single contract, as a unified team) from inception through construction, to ensure that project costs stay within your budget. The delivery method, when correctly executed, fosters an environment of collaboration, teamwork, and efficiency — and often results in significant cost savings and faster speed-to-market.
According to the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA), the design-build delivery system is now the fastest-growing construction delivery method in the U.S. Our experienced team has designed and built a wide variety of these projects across most building sectors.
Although the design-build model does not always lend itself to shared decision-making between the contractor and the owner, Shockey truly looks at the relationship as a partnership. Together, we have been able to solve problems that benefit both parties.” — Pamela M. McInnis, Superintendent, Warren County Public Schools
“Shockey is a pleasure to work with; we’ve built maybe six projects together so far, and I have zero issues with them. Everyone I’ve worked with has been great.” —Jon Eisen, The Eisen Group
“The Shockey team’s professionalism is the benchmark for the commercial construction industry.” —James Gulson, Oxford Capital Partners, Inc.
