What is Design-Build?

Design-Build is a contractual method by which architectural, engineering and construction services are performed under a SINGLE CONTRACT with the owner.

Hello to positive working relationships! The increasingly popular approach also gets your project finished on-time, in-budget!

Through this process, our in-house design engineers develop permit plans for a building from the owner's ideas with all parties on board from the start. Speed Fab-Crete can control the elements of time and money, giving you a cost and projected occupancy date before construction begins
