The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) has identified three significant advantages to design-build over traditional methods:

Single Source of Responsibility

The major advantage of design-build is our ability to provide you with a single source of responsibility for all aspects of your project. You will have a single accountable company – no excuses and no finger pointing, everybody is on the same team and you have an HL Design Build, LLC professional assigned specifically to your project. By building a collaborative team that includes the consultants, architects, interior designers, craftsmen, subcontractors, suppliers, as well as you the client, the design-builder can ensure the owner's goals are met.

Save Time

As a fully integrated team we significantly reduce the amount of time from the inception of your project to its completion. Teamwork reduces rework and redesign. Fast-tracking allows us to overlap design and construction stages by streamlining long lead time purchases and compressing bidding times. The chance for things to fall through the cracks is greatly diminished.

The design-build method is highly adaptive and responsive in the field. Big decisions can be revisited during construction without contentious change orders or additional processing fees. As a design-build firm we are involved from start to finish, which makes us inherently more efficient and effective.

Save Money

Eighty percent of the cost of a project is driven by subcontractors and suppliers. In traditional project delivery, they do not get involved until plans and permits are complete. By then it is too late, or very costly, to incorporate any cost savings ideas they could offer. As a part of the design-build team, this input is provided throughout the project and can be incorporated beginning with design at no additional cost to the project.

Single Source of Responsibility + Save Time + Save Money

These simple but fundamental differences allow you to deal with one company while you save money and time. Design-Build transforms the relationship between designers and builders into a collaborative alliance which fosters craftsmanship, teamwork with accountability and results in highly satisfied clients.

Where craftsmanship and design combine... is the foundational commitment on which we launched HL Design Build LLC in Phoenix, Arizona in 2002. We provide General Contracting, Architectural, Interior Design and Real Estate Development services for residential and commercial projects. Design and Construction are fully integrated to assure our clients that design excellence is coupled to quality craftsmanship. There are many reputable building firms in our Valley. The vital difference is that we build to your design rather than change your design to what we build. Our integrated design and construction approach assures that your design is unique and not simply a modification of a pre-existing plan. Your vision is realized without compromising design, quality, materials or craftsmanship. We enjoy our clients, what we do, the way we do it, and are committed to making your experience a meaningful and memorable one.

Customer satisfaction is essential to our business, and our work has given us many repeat clients who have requested us to design and build multiple homes or commercial projects.

Our clients keep coming back because they trust us to take on all aspects of their projects. We have won their confidence and that of our peers. We have received numerous awards for work, and our projects have been featured in a variety of regional and national print and electronic media, lifestyle magazines and professional journals.
