Why Design-Build?

The Design-Build method (often called “Turn-Key”) is in contrast to the traditional Design-Bid-Build method and allows for a much quicker, more enjoyable construction experience. A partnership is created (a completely open and transparent one if it’s with Colony) which leverages the builder’s experience during the design phase and avoids all the costly, hidden change orders which are a nasty byproduct of the traditional lowest-price-wins method.

Minimizes owner Risk & Stress - Single-source responsibility saves the owner from having to deal with issues arising from all consultants & sub-contractors. The builder takes all responsibility.
