Delivery Method Advisement

Determining the project delivery method (how the project will be designed and constructed), is one of the Owner's most important decisions. Different delivery methods have particular advantages, depending on client needs regarding schedule and cost. Hainline assists Owners through the various processes required to successfully deliver a project.

The most traditional project delivery method in the United States. In this scenario, an Owner contracts with separately with a designer and a general contractor. 
Design-Bid-Build consists of three main phases: design, bidding, and construction.

General Contractor/Contract Manager (GCCM) 
This method brings the General Contractor (GC) on board early to engage during the design phase. This collaboration is intended to meet ambitious cost and scheduling needs while also managing quality. GCCM Contracting is a process of collaborative management and construction process between the owner, architect and contractor. Typically, both the GC and the Architect are contracted separately and directly with the Owner. 

Under this method, an owner typically hires a single entity, the design/builder, to perform both design and construction under a single contract and reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project.
