Most design / build companies in today’s market are nothing more than joint ventures between individual architectural firms and construction companies, neither of which having any understanding or appreciation for the other. This “hybrid” system of single-source responsibility is actually comprised of two separate companies which often hold conflicting ideas on issues involving the design and construction, especially which entity will be leading the project. This can lead to the owner having to resolve conflicts and destroying the harmonious teamwork concept which increases time and costs.
