The Design/Build Concept for Medical Facilities

One Agreement, One Integrated Team

Guthrie General Design BuildMedical facilities, Physicians and hospitals in need of a reliable partner for their new construction, remodeling and maintenance needs are best served by the concept of design/build. Courtney Guthrie, of Guthrie Construction explains, “Design/Build means that your entire project is handled by our cohesive in house team. We offer Construction, Architectural and Interior Design, Project Management and Construction.” This is a significant benefit to the project owner because there is less time management and coordination between multiple partners, which significantly reduces stress and costly misunderstandings. Design/Build allows you to deal with one group who manages your project from start to completion.

This concept additionally creates cost savings because the entire team works together to insure that design details are integrated with architectural development. Construction has worked with the in-house architects to improve design concepts to include speed of construction and material cost savings in the process. An integrated team readily incorporates BIM and LEED certification goals.

The Design/Build approach additionally makes project delivery very streamlined. There’s one agreement between you and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork.

Guthrie Construction has been in the Design/Build business since 1975 with their primary focus on Healthcare facilities construction in the greater Phoenix area. 98% of their annual revenue is derived from repeat customers.
