Design Build

Colombo Design-Build Services

The Design-Build delivery method used by Colombo Construction Company, Inc. is a system that benefits the owner by providing a single point of contact for design and construction of the project.

This system allows the owner to work with the designer and the contractor from a project’s inception through occupancy. Collaborating throughout the design process, the contractor gains a thorough and detailed knowledge of the design intent; the architect can include the details and systems the contractor can provide most efficiently.

The Design-Build team at Colombo Construction will work with you to determine the most cost effective way to complete your project. 

From steel framed building systems, to concrete tilt-up to wood frame, our Design-Build team works with you to determine the building type that best fits your needs and budget.  The practice of design building is rooted in antiquity.


  • Having an experienced contractor lead your project.
  • Reduction of cost through the use of Value Engineering to evaluate comparative systems, materials, and methods on the project.
  • Early establishment of the project budget. The owner receives early cost input and pricing information from the contractor during the design phase of the project.
  • Improved owner control of the entire process by having a single entity lead the project from beginning to end.
  • The availability of special Design-Build team services such as preliminary feasibility studies, value engineering and life cycle costs analysis.
  • A “fast track” option that can minimize the time between the decision to build and move in by coordinating all phases of the project, simultaneously beginning construction while still developing final design drawings.
