Design-Build in Houston

Silver Spur Concrete is a commercial contractor providing design-build services throughout your project.


    Design-Build Explained

    Silver Spur Concrete is a full service design-build contractor in Houston that offers distinct advantages over contractors who do not provide start to finish services.  A standard construction process is for a project owner to hire an independent architect and engineer who coordinate through the design phase of a project and develop a set of plans which are then handed off to the general contractor for the construction phase. This method can cause costly delays and frustration for the project owner.  With a design-build contractor, all phases are coordinated through one contact, giving the contractor more control of the flow and timing of your project and creating opportunities for value engineering, resulting in a more efficient process and more valuable use of your project budget.  Silver Spur Concrete will handle your entire project all the way through from the initial design concept, to permitting, to lot preparation, and to actual construction.

    As a full service design-build contractor in Houston, Silver Spur Concrete offers a range of benefits to our clients. Unlike traditional contractors who only handle the construction phase of a project, we offer start to finish services that streamline the entire process. Traditionally, project owners hire an independent architect and engineer to design their project, and then hand off the plans to a general contractor for construction. This method can lead to costly delays and frustration for the project owner.

    At Silver Spur Concrete, we coordinate all phases of the project through one contact, giving us greater control over the timing and flow of the project. This approach allows us to identify opportunities for value engineering, maximizing the efficiency of the process and the value of your project budget.From the initial design concept to permitting, lot preparation, and actual construction, Silver Spur Concrete will handle every aspect of your project.

    Value Engineering

    At Silver Spur Concrete, we have the experience and expertise to apply value engineering to your project, maximizing its value and ensuring that your budget is used efficiently. Value engineering is a key benefit of hiring a design-build contractor like us, as it allows us to identify opportunities for improvement and cost savings throughout the project.

    Through value engineering, we can identify changes to the design of your project that will reduce maintenance and operation costs over the long term. This could include recommending more durable materials that require less upkeep, or designing the project in a way that minimizes the need for repairs or maintenance.

    In addition to reducing long-term costs, value engineering can also help to decrease the overall timeframe of your project. By identifying efficiencies in the construction process, we can work to complete your project in a shorter time frame, allowing you to start using and enjoying your new space sooner.

    Overall, value engineering is a powerful tool that allows us to maximize the value of your project budget and ensure that you get the best possible return on your investment. Contact Silver Spur Concrete today to learn more about how we can apply value engineering to your project.

    Value engineering is a powerful tool that can have a significant impact on the success of your project, and it is particularly effective when incorporated into a design-build process like the one offered by Silver Spur Concrete.

    In the traditional design, bid, and build method, it can be challenging to apply value engineering effectively. This is because no one entity has complete control over the entire project, making it difficult to identify opportunities for improvement and cost savings. With multiple independent teams working on different aspects of the project, communication can be hindered and important pieces of the project scope may be overlooked.

    On the other hand, a design-build contractor like Silver Spur Concrete has control over all aspects of the project, allowing us to coordinate the design and construction phases seamlessly. This gives us the ability to identify opportunities for value engineering and make informed decisions that will maximize the value of your project budget.

    Overall, the design-build process offers a number of benefits, including the ability to apply value engineering in a more effective and comprehensive way. Contact Silver Spur Concrete today to learn more about how we can bring value engineering to your project.

    Benefits of Design-Build


    Cost Savings

    When you hire a design-builder, you are basically buying a package. As a result you get reduced project costs due to efficiencies having everything under one roof. Efficiencies include change orders limited to owner requests, better communication between in-house team members, reduced accounting costs, and reduced over-run costs by having a greater ability to keep project completions within timelines. And with the ability to finish projects more quickly than without a design-builder, comes reduced opportunity costs. The faster a project is completed, the sooner profits can be generated and the loss of potential gain is minimized due to downtime or lost production.


    Fast Project Delivery

    Having everything under one roof greatly improves the speed at which projects can be completed.  Due to well practiced processes and streamlined communication between the various teams in the design-build process.  Better communication equals fewer problems which translate to fewer delays, resulting in a more efficient process overall.  


    Owner Risk and Management

    Hiring a design-build contractor simplifies the construction process for the owner.  With the traditional process, the general contractor, architect and engineer are all separate entities, which means there are three schedules to work around and three separate communication channels to work through. Any issue or delay in any of these channels can create costly project delays.  With a design-build contractor, an owner works through one contract and that contact has complete accountability for the quality, project schedule, and the final result of the project. This represents considerably less than when the accountability is split among multiple entities on a project.
