Design / Build




Our Design/Build Services — where CIP provides both project design and construction — offers our clients distinct advantages when compared to the traditional design-bid-build process.
  • Single Point of Accountability
    CIP is responsible for all design and construction issues such as permits, budgeting, scheduling, and change orders. The client has a convenient single source for any questions or concerns, and to resolve issues faster and easier.
  • Shorter Completion Time
    As CIP provides both design and construction, we can overlap schedules so that certain tasks are done simultaneously to speed up the process. In addition, if changes to the design are required, they can be made without having to re-bid the entire project.
  • Realistic Expectations
    Design / Build projects are more feasible than those created from a purely design point of view as they incorporate both design and practical budget elements. Issues that can increase costs—such as more expensive materials, designs, or construction methods—are decided on together by CIP and the client, so there are no nasty surprises.
  • Cohesive In-house Team
    CIP’s in-house architects, engineers, construction managers, estimators, and on-site crew work together and communicate openly with the client and with each other to ensure the quality and workmanship of each phase of the project.
