Stratus has global expertise in overseeing single-source design-build projects. In today’s dynamic and competitive marketplace, the design-build approach holds several important advantages. Our expertise helps our clients reduce costs by minimizing personnel while maintaining control of scope, budget, and schedule. Because all members of the design-build team work as an integrated unit, construction proceeds simultaneously with design, shortening the project schedule.
Due to our experience in working under multiple delivery models, Stratus can advise clients on whether a design-build, progressive-design-build, engineering/procurement/construction, public-private partnership, CMAR, or other option is ideal for a given project.
Design-build doesn’t fit every scenario, but it has real advantages for the agency/owner and the contractor. It ensures that the owner has a single point of responsibility; has the potential to reduce change orders and shrink project schedules; and creates a more flexible and collaborative approach to important, complex projects.
