Our Process


What is Design/Build?

Design-Build is another contracting method that is gaining popularity, as it can provide significant cost and time savings for owners. Whereas the traditional Design-Bid-Build process separates design and construction, Design-Build provides a single point of responsibility for an entire project. Instead of the homeowner contracting separately with the architect or designer and the contractor, Design-Build typically ties the architect or designer contractually to the contractor. The contractor then enters into a Design-Build agreement with the owner, so that the homeowner deals with only a single point of contact.

How Design-Build Works

Here’s how it works at Liberty Hill Construction: we select an architect or designer for a specific project and place them under contract as part of our design-build team. We then work with the owner to plan, design and construct the project to meet the specific design, budget and scheduling goals, within the constraints and demands of the project.

Similar to Construction Manager at Risk, Design-Build allows for improved coordination between the designer, contractor and trade partners, more efficient and buildable designs, advantageous economies of time and cost and a coordinated team approach.

We have experienced great success using this process and our customers have been pleased with the results.
