Our Process at a glance
Want to know what’s the biggest catch-22 in construction when it comes to designing and building projects? Well, according to various studies it’s the idea that cutting corners can end up saving you a lot of money. Various peer-reviewed papers, including one published by the American Society of Civil Engineers, correlated the different costs between the two traditional construction delivery methods — Design-Build (DB) and Design-Bid-Build (DBD).
What’s the Design-Build Method in Construction?
Design-Build is when you hire one firm, one company, to spearhead your whole operation. To take on all the heavy lifting, There’s one project manager that shepherds and administers not only your design team but also your construction crew. Both key sectors working in unison under the supervision of this overseer. It’s pure synergy.
It’s far more comprehensive and optimized.
What is Design-Bid-Build in Construction?
The Design-Bid-Build method, also known as design tender, works under a different optic. It’s a bit looser and a bit more DIY when it comes to homeowners. In what way? Well, in a nutshell, the homeowner is the overall project manager. You have two different teams – a firm that designs your project, delivers said blueprints, and then a construction crew that builds it. In this strategy, the homeowner tries to save a buck or two, by negotiating each instance of their project with different firms. Each of these companies only assumes responsibility for their phase of the project. It’s more complex, more harrowing, and counterintuitive.
The general thought is that, by shopping around for bids, the homeowner can in fact find a more affordable option. Unfortunately, studies have shown, time after time, that in most cases costs actually sky-rocket by up to 43%.
Why? Since there is no cooperation between teams, when a problem arises, or an obstacle needs a workaround, the home-owner has to to go back to the drawing board, and contact the design team. This in turn produces risks, delays, and costs.

Our process is mostly built on a Design-Build delivery method. Our teams work in unison and have experience interacting with each other. We make dynamic decisions based on your vision and your ultimate goal. Both the construction crew as well as the designers can holistically interpret your idea — with vital input from both sectors.
- Our teams are up-to-date with current construction costs and equipment available.
- Both teams work in tandem, giving you precious notes on your idea, which in turn will help lower the cost and give you a better quality product.
- There is open transparency between all our team members. You won’t have to be the go-between. Our project manager will be your coordinator. You’ll only have to talk to one person and be certain that your commands are being communicated down the line.
- We offer an incredibly fast delivery method — both teams working in unison have that advantage.
- Faster reaction times when dealing with unforeseen circumstances or challenges.
- One-stop-shop — saving you headaches, allowing you to sleep easier, and giving you a well-rounded project.
- Accountability — since we take on the responsibility of the whole project, D.B.C Solutions is accountable for any oversight or issue. Normally, when contracting different firms for each phase – one for design and the other for construction – they will have a habit of blaming the other when something hits a snag.
