Ten Penny Construction teams with Gontram Architecture to deliver commercial projects via the Design-Build process. Our unique process of architect-led design-build makes our Clients’ lives simpler by providing design and construction from a single source. The fact that we are architects and contractors gives our clients the distinct advantage of early budget confirmation, and the virtual elimination of surprises, delays, change orders, and cost overruns.
In the traditional Design-Bid-Build process, clients hire an Architect, who then designs the dream project for the Client. It is then put out to bid to multiple general contractors, who provide a price, that may or may not be within the project budget, but is guaranteed to be ripe with potential change orders, surprises, and budget busters in the end. It is a contentious process that puts the Owner between the design team and the construction team if a conflict arises, with multiple parties pointing fingers at each other.
In the Architect-led Design-Build process, everything is provided to the Owner thru a single-source, team approach. The Architect and General Contractor work together from Day One to provide a successful project, within an initial budget, within the time allotted, and with no surprises. And with a single source for design and construction, the owner doesn’t need to worry about playing referee.
At Ten Penny Construction, we make the complicated and stressful process of commercial design and construction predictable, economical, and enjoyable. We’d like to help you with your project! You can find out more about our process by downloading our FREE GUIDE.
