Bid & Build
Amerail has worked with Architects from the east coast to the west coast providing some of the finest Hotel exterior upgrades in the country.
We would be pleased to work in conjunction with ownership and their design team to incorporate Value Engineered ideas in the projects design and construction phases to produce a lasting transformation that will serve your organization for years to come.
In the Design-Bid-Build process, the owner contracts separately with the design firm that produces the construction documents and the builder that physically renovates the hotel. The design team works directly for the owner, and produces a set of construction documents that are used as the basis of the bidding process.
The Design Bid Build method is beneficial for owners who do not have particular expertise in exterior renovation projects. Since each phase of the project is distinct, theoretically, the process is more linear and easier to follow. Depending on the organization, having two separate contracts, with the architect and the general contractor, could either limit or increase liability. The owner serves as a mediator for any design and construction issue that occurs for each party.
With the Bid-Build method, the owner uses a good amount of project funds in the design phase, before getting a firm price on the actual construction phase. Because general contractors are typically not brought on early enough to give feedback during the design process this can leave owners vulnerable to: change orders, delays and additional costs initiated by the contractor.
