Summary

  • Site selection– due diligence, entitlements land acquisition
  • Preliminary planning & estimating
  • Proforma development
  • Zoning, permitting and municipality representation/approvals
  • Scheduling
  • Value-engineering
  • Life-cycle costing
  • Constructability reviews

Owner’s Role:

  • Owner hires an architect and THG at the start of the design process
  • Owner manages two contracts – one with the architect and one with THG

Summary:

  • Early knowledge of total project cost, before design work is completed, at reduced initial investment. Builder input during design, ongoing budgeting and value-engineering
  • Well-suited for fast-track projects
  • Collaborative rather than adversarial relationship between architect and builder
  • Approximately 85% of project is competitively bid
  • Owner may participate in subcontractor selection
  • Owner warrants architect’s work
  • Construction management fee established at beginning of project

Owner’s Role:

  • Owner hires an architect to design the project and delivers completed plans and specifications to THG for pricing
  • The owner manages two contracts – one with the architect and one with THG

Summary:

  • Selection of builder is objective and based on completed design
  • Total project cost not known until design is complete and all design fees expended
  • Difficult to value-engineer after design is complete
  • Owner warrants architect’s work
  • Potential for adversarial relationships – because THG is not controlling the design. Architect can design it in a way that reduces costs, but they don’t, and then the responsibility falls on GC.

Owner’s Role:

  • Owner hires THG, who is responsible for both design and construction for the project
  • Owner manages just one contract

Summary:

  • Early knowledge of total project cost, before design work is completed, at reduced initial investment
  • Builder input during design, ongoing budgeting, and value-engineering
  • Reduced change-order potential
  • Single entity responsible for design and construction
  • Collaborative rather than adversarial relationship between architect and builder
  • Approximately 85% of project is competitively bid
  • Owner may participate in subcontractor selection
  • Design-Builder’s fee established at beginning of project
  • Selection of builder is subjective
  • Easier to control, can be more expensive for owner, delivery is quicker, Henning has to assume more responsibility. DB allows fast-track construction which means they will design the foundation plans and start building before it is even designed. Will do this with warehouse, distribution centers, and those with a reduced scope of work. Can typically shave off 6 months to 1 year.
