What are the advantages of using a Design-Build contractor?
Simply put, it’s a single source for all of your construction needs.

While traditional methods of having separate architects and construction professionals are still used, design-build is becoming the method of choice by those who understand or have experienced its benefits.

In contrast to traditional processes, the design-build method teams up the architectural and construction professionals to arrive at an efficient, value-driven solution for customers. Instead of working independently (and sometimes at odds with one another), these two groups work together from the beginning to identify the design and construction methods that best suit the customer’s needs—including respecting budgets.

The design-build project delivery method has the advantage of streamlining communication between the architects, engineers, contractors and subcontractors working on a project, and it can lead to cost savings as well.

As a true design-build company, STAR offers both architectural and construction services. Our own professional in-house architectural staff works in harmony with our production team for a seamless operation.
