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 team of design professionals to produce a lasting transformation that will serve their organization for years to come. With our extensive hotel renovation experience, we work closely with ownership and your design team to incorporate Value Engineered ideas in the projects design and construction phases. Items to consider before your traditional design, Bid and Build project.
- Multiple Parties Involved - In the Design-Bid-Build delivery, 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.
- Ease to Ownership - 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.
- Potential Higher Costs - The owner uses a good amount of project funds in the design phase, before getting a firm price on the actual construction phase. Potential vulnerability to change orders, delays, and additional costs initiated by the contractor because the general contractor isn’t normally on board early in the process, they aren’t able to give feedback during the design process.
