The Design-Build method is not a new project delivery option. This method is viable in today’s market for the following reasons:

  1. There is a single source of responsibility between the contractor and designer.
  2. Fast track scheduling assists in compressing the projects duration since construction can begin while design is ongoing.
  3. Design-Build allows the owner to benefit from the teams resources which are oriented towards the goal of a mutually successful project instead of the adversarial relationships which are typical in the hard bid industry.
  4. Project costs are identified in the early stages which can lead to more innovative and cost efficient solutions.

Construction Management

Our approach to construction management begins with the formation of a team. The owner, the designer and Lakoff Construction Services work jointly to achieve clearly defined project objectives. Owners are most interested in the decisions which affect cost, quality and time. Lakoff Construction Services management will give you direct control over the decisions which control these factors.

Lakoff Construction Management Services will represent the owner in crucial areas such as:
  • Programming, project definition and pre-planning
  • Control of the scope of work
  • Project scheduling
  • Maximum use of subcontractor’s resources
  • Enhancement of construction quality
  • Timely project closeout

Comprehensive management and an individual commitment to owner satisfaction is the dynamic force which makes a project team – owner, architect and construction manager – successful while also providing maximum project value.
