Design-Build

We make it easy

When a builder from Pittsburgh partnered with an architect from Seattle, they had a single mission: To help organizations achieve their goals through high-performing buildings. Single-source delivery of integrated design and construction is Momentum’s core offering.

At Momentum, we combine the best ideas of the design community with a world-class project management process. Results include buildings that are delivered in less time, at a lower cost, and extraordinarily successful business outcomes for clients.

I appreciate their partnership approach – Momentum’s transparency, candor and unique approach to every project are truly refreshing. They listen to the client and provide an end-product that is not only visually appealing but one that creates functional excellence as well.”

Why Design-Build?

It’s called an alternative project delivery method, but in fact, the Masterbuilder approach to building has been around for nearly 4,000 years! As building system complexity increased, owners have returned to the design-build delivery method with a renewed understanding that the design and successful delivery of a building project are inextricably linked. The statistical success of the design-build delivery method is well documented, but don’t just take our word for it – talk with one of our clients! This is what they have told us they’ve gained from the Design-Build approach:

  • Single point of contractual responsibility
  • Decreased internal staff resource requirements
  • Improved integration of construction knowledge in design
  • Earlier cost risk transfer to the Design-Builder
  • Improved team-member collaboration
  • Fewer change orders
  • Projects delivered more quickly and at a lower cost
