Hi, what are you looking for?


Why do surf parks use the Design Build process?

From WavePoolMag:

Between the vision of a wave pool and the bedrock reality of opening day lies a tangle of parts that must fit together perfectly – on time and on budget. Within these phases the biggest one is physically making the damn thing happen. This is called delivery method, and it denotes how you will proceed with the architect, contractors, subcontractors, and everyone else. 

There are three main ways of executing a contract delivery method: Design-Bid-Build, Construction Manager at Risk, and Design/Build. In a nutshell, Design-Bid-Build involves the owner hiring a Design team and low-bid contractor separately. Construction Manager at Risk means the owner hires a construction manager to work with the design team and go back and forth. In the Design/Build method, the owner contracts with a single entity, the design/build firm, to provide both design and construction services.
