The Design-Bid-Build construction process allows the clients to get constructive feedback about the project. The Design-Bid-Build model consists of six steps.
During this phase, the client works with Artisan Development and has a general idea of the project goals and timeline and costs.
In the Design-Bid-Build model, we complete the following steps in the pre-construction phase:
• Get budget approval.
• Contact city officials, local representatives, and private sector personnel to notify them.
• Make any additional plans or adjustments to the construction site.
• Coordinate schedules with the surrounding community and private firms to
minimize any disruption.
• Conduct an equipment inventory to assess any need.
• At the end of this process, the client makes any final decisions and last-minute check steps. Once these steps are complete, the client releases a Notice-To-Proceed for contractors to start the next phase.
In the Procurement phase, we coordinate with all contractors to create a baseline schedule to complete the project phases on time. Some contractors’ roles directly depend on other contractors, so we diligently plan the entire project scope and steps. We use this phase to delegate any team roles for the project, including managers, team leads, and more.
Also, in the Procurement phase, we note any materials with extensive lead times that could delay the project. For example, windows, steel beams, and plumbing items can take longer to arrive, so we keep an eye out for these.
The construction process is when the design becomes a reality. Contractors and subcontractors work together to complete the design based on the specs in the construction documents.
To keep the project on track, we’ll schedule either weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly review meetings with project stakeholders from both organizations. In these meetings, we review the work completed thus far and look ahead at upcoming project goals.
During this phase, we shift all building management to the client to prepare them to move-in to the new home. We also take this time to answer any last-minute questions. Afterward, the project is complete!
Our project closeout phase is a primarily internal review of our overall project efficiency. We host project meetings with our team leads, managers, and contractors to identify areas to improve. We also highlight project strengths that we plan to implement in the future.
The objective is to be able to take a successful rehabber and educate and get you the ground-up experience necessary for your future projects.
