Design-Build Services

Rhodes Building Company is well versed in the “Design-Build” method of project delivery. Our experience and relationships make us a strong team leader in the “Design-Build” delivery process.

"Design-Build" means development through team collaboration, resulting in the utmost control of cost, quality and schedule.

Rhodes Building Company has successfully delivered "Design-Build" projects throughout the State of Florida and is currently part of a team that includes [URL:]BHM Architecture, Inc.[URL] involved with new construction, tenant improvement and renovation projects throughout Central and South Florida.

"Design-Build" delivery offers clients the following advantages when compared to the traditional "Design-Bid-Build" delivery method:

- “Design-Build” provides the client a single source of accountability and contract delivery for a project. This single source contract method promotes a "team" environment and ultimately equates to an efficiently managed project from concept through construction.

- “Design-Build” equates to effective cost control for a project. Construction documents are developed through a collaborative process involving the "Design-Build" team and client. Cost implications of a projects design elements are clearly identified throughout this process ensuring that the client plays a vital role in determining and controlling the cost of a project.

- Team collaboration allows the ability to provide critique of a project during the design phase. This process helps in identifying potential construction/design related conflicts prior to entering the construction phase of a project and thus eliminating costly change orders.

- “Design-Build” leads to streamlined project schedules. This equates to faster project completion and ROI compared to traditional delivery methods. The "Design-Build" method creates reduced bid, permitting and approval times by promoting schedule development throughout the design process.

- “Design-Build” means maintaining the utmost control of quality,cost and schedule by creating a collaborative team focused on protecting the client's interests.
