General Contracting often refers to a fixed price contract format, the traditional method of contracting for construction services and the most widely used. Under this format, the client retains consultants to design the project and to establish the scope of the work. The contract price and terms between the client and general contractor are developed either through a bidding process or through negotiation. Under the terms of a fixed price contract, the general contractor is responsible for delivering the scope of work established by the contract documents for a fixed price.
|The concept of design-build is well proven and has gained wide acceptance as an expedient and economical way to design and construct a broad range of facilities.|
We believe that the best results come from collaboration between the builder, the subcontractors, the manufacturers, the architect and the engineers. This design/build process provides an environment that encourages and maximizes this collaboration as well as establishes clear responsibility to ensure that the project performs as specified. The ability to work together as a team reduces the time required to complete the working drawings, mobilization, construction, commissioning and demobilization resulting in a shorter delivery period - without the adversarial relationship historically prevalent with the "traditional" delivery method. Since the team is responsible for the design, there is a reduced need for sizable construction contingencies to cover shortfalls in the construction documents.
Under the design-build format, both the design and construction of a project are included in the contractor's scope of work. Strykers Construction retains outside design consultants to perform the design work for such projects. This permits Strykers to assemble a team with the best expertise available related to a particular type of work.
