The design-build delivery method mean we take sole responsibility for planning, design, engineering and construction phases. We create a single, “at risk” total cost contract with owners, offering several advantages:

  • Simplification of the construction process and “speed-to-market” delivery.
  • Involvement of our design-build team at the onset of the project, making us a strategic partner in the process from concept to completion.

As a design-builder, we work closely with owners to establish overall project objectives, target budgets, conduct site evaluations/selection, program development, and establish schedules and milestone dates. Our expertise in construction costs, scheduling, availability of materials and equipment, and similar factors help us to streamline projects and prevent costly errors or budget overruns.

Faster timelines. Exceptional end product.

Our design-build method can significantly reduce the construction timeline—sometimes by as much as 30 percent compared to the traditional design-bid-build delivery method. We achieve this by having overlapping of the design and construction phases. In addition, we establish costs early on and create true value through constructability reviews instead of post-bid scope reductions. This allows owners to make financial and business decisions based on an early guaranteed cost, defined occupancy date, and Moss’ open-book estimating approach.
