The Design-Bid-Build delivery model requires owners to pursue an architectural design that does not involve the construction teams.
Our service delivery
Kinetic conducts thorough design document reviews during the tender period and offers advice regarding potential budget issues and other risk factors. However, since the design precedes builder involvement, addressing issues must be through change orders.
- Two contracts: Designer and General Contractor
- Three distinct delivery phases: Design, Tendering, and Construction
- Linear sequence of work
- Owner warrants the sufficiency of the design to the contractor
- Widely understood model with all players
- Design must be complete before construction begins
Kinetic’s experience as a General Contractor dates back to the company’s inception in 1984, when founder Bill Gyles set out to manage stipulated-price contracts more effectively than existing construction companies.
