Design build contract is faster and more cost effective for the owner with The Pentreath Company being the single contact point. The owner knows the cost of the project before the project is in the design stage. Once the owner and the contractor agree on the parameters of the project and agree on the cost and type of contract, the architect, and civil, structural, mechanical and electrical engineers are brought in to the team. The project can be fast tracked with site work beginning while the other drawings are in the design and permitting stages. The design build contract can be lump sum, cost plus a fee, guaranteed maximum cost plus a fee, guaranteed maximum cost plus a fee with cost savings being shared by owner and contractor.
