Benefits of contractors and Architects working together:
- Team-Orientated Approach- The client, the architect, and the contractor will be working together to create a design that will fit the project. By working together, they will be able to identify the goals of the project, the specifications of the structure, and the subsequent costs of the project.
- Managing Expectations- By involving the client, the architect, and the contractor, we will be able to manage the expectations of the project to help minimize delays. We will be able to communicate any budget, availability of materials, and even environmental conditions that can affect the original plans of the project.
- On-site Inspections- Meetings between the contractor, architect, and the client will provide opportunities to discuss the progression of the project.
- Learning Process- Architects and designers will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the construction of the project. It will help them get insight into issues and concerns that contractors face during construction and incorporate those ideas into future designs.
