Do you know what a Design/Build actually is? Shawn McCadden for his Design/Builder’s Blog this week demystifies what it means to do Design/Build. McCadden writes, “Unfortunately many think they are doing or claim to be doing Design/Build, but they are not… I find it sad to see how many hours and dollars are lost and wasted by contractors trying to figure out how to do Design/Build.”

McCadden advises the following:

  1. Yes, becoming a real Design/Builder will be an evolution of change.
  2. In the beginning selling Design/Build will be a challenge.
  3. If you do Design/Build well, you will gain trust from clients who will refer you to others.
  4. Remember that there are plenty of contractors already doing the same things you’re challenged to consider doing; and knowing that you know you can also do it.
