For those unfamiliar with the design-build process, it’s a construction method in which the design and construction of a building are contracted and controlled by one source – the design-builder. Whereas traditional construction methods require the client to function as a mediator between the general contractor and the architect, design-build involves a single point of accountability, creating a more organized and controlled project. This helps prevent unnecessary delays in schedule and added costs due to unforeseen design discrepancies.
Design-build forms a meaningful portion of our work. By reducing our clients’ dependence on multiple vendors, including designers and engineers, Franjo has earned a reputation as a reliable, one-stop builder of innovative projects throughout the western PA, WV, OH and FL regions.
