The Design/Build concept allows for fast-tracking, many different construction activities taking place at one time, to move the project forward at an accelerated pace.  This allows the owner to occupy the building sooner than possible with the traditional design, bid and construct process, shortening construction time and cost to the owner.

For example, as soon as the footing and foundation designs are complete, the contractor can start mass earthwork and site engineering while the rest of the construction drawings are being completed.
