What does Design-Build mean? And what does it mean for you?


Remodeling Tips



Design-Build is the project process where one team works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design AND construction services. The other way that a lot of contractors work is called Design-Bid-Build. This involves having one company design the project and another company build the project, forcing the owner to juggle two different contracts and possibly two sets of sub-contractors.

So what does this mean for you?

Gabor Design Build operates as a Design-Build contractor to save you time, money and headaches.


By working with a Design-Build contractor, you will save yourself time because you have one point of contact that walks you through the entire project. At Gabor Design Build, that person is your Project Manager. They work with our CAD Designers to draw up your plans, hire the sub-contractors to complete the labor, work with the inspectors to move the construction process along and the designers to make sure your project looks exactly how you envisioned it. Your Project Manager takes the time to coordinate all these schedules which means you don’t have to.


Because your Design-Build contractor is the one designing your plans as well as constructing the project, that means they are able to find you cost savings and eliminate issues before a single hammer is picked up. At Gabor Design Build, our Project Managers work hand in hand with our CAD Designers to ensure the plans are realistic and without issue.


Every remodeling project has issues that come up, it’s just the nature of the business. If a contractor tells you that there will be no complications, RUN. It is virtually impossible to know what you are going to run into when walls are opened up. The important thing is having a contractor who can quickly and effectively communicate the issues and come up with fixes for them. That’s where the single point of contact is most noticeable because you, as the homeowner, are not responsible for calling various subcontractors to eliminate the issue.

Beyond the basic bonuses of hiring a Design-Build contractor, Gabor Design Build has even more. Our Project Managers are all architecturally trained so you can trust their experience and expertise. Our designers work out of our 5,000 SF Showroom and are able to help you pick out every detail of your project from flooring to light fixtures and everything in between. Our Warehouse acts as a staging area for your project so that you are not inconvenienced by cabinets or fixtures taking up space in your garage. Most importantly, our Process can give you the peace of mind that we will always be there when you call and we will carry the project through to a beautiful completion.
