Design/Build What is Design/Build?
Design/build is a method of project delivery in which the owner hires one contractor to provide design and construction services. The contractor is responsible for both the integrity of the design as well as the quality of theinstallation. The process allows for factors such as time, quality, and innovation—not simply price—to be considered in choosing a contractor.

Traditional phases of a construction project include:

  • schematic design
  • design development
  • optional building information modeling (BIM)
  • construction documentation
  • bidding
  • construction administration

Pre-Construction The preconstruction phase of a project is as critical as the construction itself and Consumer Electric has a team that specializes in this phase. Our extensive experience makes it possible to be proactive to ensure constructability before the project even breaks ground. Specifically, our preconstruction team provides the clients with:

  • Careful review of all documents and drawings
  • Initial budget identification
  • Budget breakdowns established in easy to read format
