Why D&C works for you and new home builds?

So you’re ready to take the next big step and invest in your property? Well you’ve come to the right place! There is so much involved when it comes to any kind of building project whether it be for new home builds or commercial builds. You might have already come across terms like D&C that you don’t quite understand. So let’s explore that together and allow us to share our knowledge and passion for the building industry with you.

What is D&C?

D&C or design and construct is a widely accepted and used construction delivery method in major building contracts. In its most literal sense, it involves designing and drafting the plans for the building from an engineering and architectural standpoint to then undertake the construction of the building. This differs from construct only contracts, where designs are brought to the builder through a third party, and the builder’s sole responsibility is to build based on the supplied plans.

Why does it work for you?

  1. Single point of responsibility.

    As everything is undertaken by the builder with a D&C contract, there is a single point of responsibility. This means if you have any queries, concerns or updates you need to advise your builder of, you only need to speak to one company. There is no need to scurry around calling multiple different people to try to coordinate your build. Everything is taken care of with a D&C contract so that your building experience is smooth and stress-free.

  2. Speed up the process.

    Thanks to the in-house capabilities of D&C constructions, any changes in plans or budget are easily modified by the designer to suit your adapted needs resulting in a faster project delivery. There is no need to liaise with a third party designer who can take weeks to make simple modifications, resulting in the dragging out of your project timeline and potentially blowing out your budget. With a D&C contract, your plans are collaboratively modified with a speedy turnaround to keep your build on track, so we can get you in there as soon as we can.

  3. Cost control.

    With a D&C contract costs are minimised due to a lack of outsourcing. With the open and transparent communication that a D&C contract provides, any potential hiccups or changes in schedule or design are communicated effectively with you so that you’re aware of the costs.
