The Design/Build method is the most efficient and cost-effective way to build a project. Design/Build promotes a team approach that includes the Design/Builder and the owner with the Design/Builder taking all of the risks for input and coordination of project details so the owner doesn’t have to
As the Design/Builder, Sullivan Construction works directly for the owner as the single point of contact. This enables us to manage the process efficiently, add value during the design phase and take all of the risks for the project from the owner. Realized cost savings are credited to the owner at the end of the project.
