Gonzalez & Associates LLC is also capable of providing Design-Build services to our clients. Over the years we have developed strong working relationships with local architects/engineers. Design-Build is another contracting method that can provide significant cost and time savings for the client. This system is used to minimize the project risk for an owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project. In this system the design-builder is the contractor, and the design professionals are typically retained directly by the contractor. The Design-Build method provides the opportunity for improved coordination between the architect/engineer and the contractor, for a more efficient and constructible design, and provides the client with a greater overall team approach.
