For luxury residential construction, the Design & Build model realizes project results that are delivered faster, of higher quality, and for the optimum cost - the best value for money, time and effort invested. It is well suited for projects with schedule constraints or those that are complex in nature, though the benefits of the Design & Build model apply to all forms of luxury residential construction.
