For traditional building projects, an architect will hire an engineer to produce drawings for a project’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing work. Subcontractors in each of those areas will then bid the project, and those that are awarded the work will utilize those drawings.

In design/build projects, the subcontractors themselves either have in-house engineering capabilities, or they often are aligned with an outside strategic engineering partner. Collectively, they work with the architect and owner to develop the design and drawings in accordance with that owner’s vision.

For building projects of any size or scope, a GC or end user’s ultimate goals are usually two-fold: get the job done on time and on budget. In this regard, a design/build approach for electrical contracting projects is ideal.
