Big R Bridge works with design-build owners, engineers or contractors to deliver exceptional architecture, value and performance.
What is design-build?
Design-build is an integrated approach that delivers design and construction services under one contract with a single point of responsibility. This system is used to minimize the project risks for the owner and tighten the delivery schedule by overlapping the design and construction phases of a project.
What are design-build advantages?
Design-build projects save time and money. Collaboration between firms in design-build projects yields substantial savings and public sector agencies are now taking notice.
