Design Build

What Is It?

Design-Build is a process where an Owner executes a single contact with one entity to provide both design and construction services. That entity is a team of premiere construction contractors, often led by Syler Construction, and one or more civil design firms. As a team, we partner with an Owner to design and construct the project in the shortest possible time and at a reasonable price to provide a high-quality product that will serve users for years. Design-Build is a method where we start construction before design is completed. Working together, the team can be innovative in finding ways to quickly resolve issues that emerge. Design-Build also allows faster work completion at substantial cost savings compared to the traditional process of design-bid-build.

Advantages of Design-Build

  • Time Savings
  • Single Point Responsibility
  • Team Ingenuity
  • Less interruption of your daily business

Program Phases

The Preliminary Phase allows owners to explore the feasibility of their remodeling plan without paying costly architectural design fees. The Preliminary Phase includes the preparation of several schemes, including schematic sketches and budgeting pricing for each phase.


Once the Owner chooses their desired design and corresponding budget, The Design/Development Phase refines the preliminary phase sketches into plans, prepares project specifications and provides the Owner with a construction proposal.


The Construction Phase completes the Design/Development Phase drawings with sufficient detail to obtain building permits and builds the project.

Build Program

Step One: The Needs Analysis
The first step in our Syler Construction Design-Build Program is the introductory process. We plan our meeting with you and arrive on schedule. We sit down and review your needs, desires and goals.

Step Two: The Design Phase
Following the Needs Analysis, we build your ideas into a architectural design, complete with pricing. For projects requiring less detail, we provide a work description, complete with pricing.

Step Three: The Review Phase
After our design is complete, we schedule another appointment with you to sit down and review the concept that we have drafted, based on the Needs Analysis conducted earlier.

Step Four: Our Recommendations
If we have additional recommendations, as a result of existing conditions, the design intent, or selected products, we present them to you formally, supported with sample product or idea information for your evaluation.

Step Five: References & Field Trips
We are proud of our work and will gladly provide a list of references. Whenever possible we provide field trips to previously completed Syler Construction projects for first hand product evaluation.

Step Six: Customer Input and Integration
After completing, reviewing the design with you, and inputting our recommendations, we carefully integrate any additional input that you may wish to provide us before permit drawings (if required) and final estimate/proposal preparation.

Step Seven: The Pre-Construction Phase
As the construction work begins and the design begins to take shape, the project is monitored daily and the construction schedule is updated weekly. Additional changes are inputted when applicable through written work change orders.

Step Eight: The Walk-Thru Phase
At substantial completion, we walk the project with you and prepare a punch list for any outstanding items, product defects, and/or additional work.

Step Nine: Final Modifications
Following the walk-thru phase, we complete the punch list and all final inspections.

Step Ten: The Follow-Up
Following completion, we provide you with the project manual, complete with company and manufactures' warranties, finish schedule, submittals and a contact sheet of all subs and suppliers. Additionally, we want your input of our performance in writing, so we can continue to improve and meet the demands of our clients. At Syler Construction, we are always available to provide ongoing support and services. We strive to meet the needs of our customers.
