Is it preferable to have design-build in-house architecture, design, and construction or to outsource them? There are pros and cons to each and the following are some of them.
Control the Process
Design-build firms enjoy the process involved, and they have a lot to say regarding the budget and design.
Customers see design-build firms as a one-stop-shop. When they come to the firm, everything is taken care of, and there are no other parties to manage.
Reciprocity allows design build firms to work with many different firms. They know several architects that are good and can establish a good working relationship.
Also, they know great designers they have worked with before, and they can refer to each other.
Portfolio diversity means they can work on a modern and contemporary home and transitional home since they work with different architects and designers with different styles and tastes.
Limited by the Clientele
Most of the time, design-build firms are restricted by the clientele, limiting the firm’s ability to do different designs out there in the market.
Personalities and Decisions Made during Pre-construction
It isn’t easy to ensure that build designers and architects speak the same language and coordinate the process correctly.
