Design Build Future
THE GROWTH OF DESIGN BUILD: TODAY & THE FUTURE
When Decker Electric was founded back in 1977, construction projects and demands were much different than today. As technologies and systems evolved to provide more efficient, timely and effective methods in construction, Decker Electric has adapted and even led the way in ensuring we provide the best service and end product possible for each of our clients and partners. One major delivery in the construction industry that is benefiting industrial plants, manufacturing plants, and even developers is the Design Build process.
Decker Electric has provided Design Build services to companies and individuals across the country for 30 years. Design Build is an integrated project delivery system that allows us as a single entity to coordinate, manage and operate the entire electrical construction process – from conceptual design to process startup or owner occupancy.
DESIGN BUILD’S GROWING POPULARITY
Design Build is rapidly becoming the preferred project delivery system for companies across the country. A study conducted by Fails Management Institute projected that Design Build projects would grow by 18% from 2018 to 2021, making it a $320 billion dollar industry. The areas most expected to see the greatest jump in utilizing the Design Build process include industrial, manufacturing and commercial.
There is good reason that Design Build is becoming a more sought-after construction model. Some of the benefits of Design Build include:
HIGHLY SATISFYING RESULTS
As Design Build continues to be the more preferred method with construction projects, people and companies who have utilized this method have been satisfied with the project. Compared to all other types of delivery methods, Design Build had the highest satisfaction rating. 76% of owners who had a Design Build project completed rated it excellent to very good. The reliability that Design Build project will be done on time and according to original designs is a driving factor in why many choose this method.
DESIGN BUILD DEMANDS IN THE MIDWEST & BEYOND
Here in Kansas, construction needs requiring Design Build are expected to increase on average with the rest of the country. But off just to our west in the Mountain region (Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and New Mexico), Design Build is expected to see its biggest growth here in the United States. Decker Electric has grown over the decades to provide services across our country, including Design Build in the Mountain region and states across America. This map shows the extent of our company’s service coverage.
DESIGN BUILD: A HISTORY OF CONSTRUCTION
Up until the last decade or so, the Design Build method wasn’t highly regarded among many in the construction industry or considered to be a novel alternative to traditional methods. With the growing conversation of how much Design Build has taken off recently as the preferred choice for new construction, it may seem that this is a new type of construction delivery method. It’s not. In fact, the Design Build model has been around for over four thousand years! Trusting one group or individual with the entirety of a construction project is a method with great history of success.
