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 seasoned team has designed and built a wide variety of these projects across most building sectors.
