As more and more businesses are forced to focus greater resources on maintaining financial accountability, sustaining their competitive edge and working with tighter budgets, the design and construction industry is working to meet these demands. As a result, the trend for the design-build method of project delivery is growing.
Panzica Construction Company, already known for its expertise in construction management, has also gained recognition in the fi eld of design-build. Design-build offers the owner a single-source of contractual responsibility and the ability to fast-track the schedule. Who would not want to experience a project with fi nger pointing eliminated; a project that still maintains high quality with cost responsibilities controlled and delivered in the shortest possible timeframe?
