Saving you money

integrated-project-delivery CARAPELLAIt’s not their fault really. It’s just that traditionally, architects have little control over construction costs.

The Problem with Traditional Delivery Methods.
The traditional design-bid-build process keeps the contractor out of the loop until the bidding process, when the house is already designed by the architect. This means if the construction bids are over budget, the house may have to undergo significant redesign, costing the client money and time.

A Better Way

Our integrated delivery avoids this problem by bringing the contractor (and the rest of the design team) onto the project early so the design can be carefully worked out to meet the budget.
This method offers the following advantages:

  • Cost-effective design due to the Architect’s access to construction and pricing information during the design phases quality
  • Delivery of the project with reduced likelihood of cost increases or overruns
  • Familiarizes the entire design and construction team with the project early on, so there are less surprises during construction
