GERBER BEREND • DESIGN BUILD
Why Design Build
Our Design Build team excels at transforming our client’s dreams into extraordinary homes. Gerber Berend Design Build combines experienced designers with meticulous craftsmen into one Integrated Team, eliminating the lack of communication that often takes place between architects and builders for a seamless home building experience.
How Design Build Differs
Too often, a lack of communication between architects and builders or lack of expertise results in poor building performance, substandard finish details, or unnecessary and unexpected costs for the owner. Embracing a collaborative Design Build model, Gerber Berend ensures the seamless transfer of information from the Designer to the Builder through a team that has an established, efficient and well-practiced working relationship.
Design Build minimizes discrepancies or misinformation between the Architect and Builder that might otherwise cause cost overruns, delays, gaps in design consistency or improper execution of construction details.
The person who designs a structure coordinates the project on site, assuring that structural and aesthetic details are understood and carried out throughout the construction process.
How Our Clients Benefit
Building a home is notoriously challenging. Our job, our commitment to our clients, is to provide a seamless transfer of information from the Designer to the Builder as part of our efficient and practiced working relationship. Just as our Architects are involved in the construction process, our Builders provide invaluable feedback throughout the design process. Cost estimates during each phase of design are built into the process, providing overall budget checks throughout. Further, as details develop and the project scope changes, cost estimates are revisited, designs and budgets are revised, and expectations are realigned between the building team and the clients. Ultimately, a client has one Design Build team to stand behind the entire scope of the home building process.
Inherent in our Design Build process, owners incur no additional costs associated with design coordination in the field.
