As a full-service construction firm, Broadmoor offers comprehensive services including in-house design-build project delivery. Broadmoor has thirty years of experience in design-build project delivery. We pioneered the development of design-build services in our region in the early 1980's and continue to see this form of project delivery grow in both public and private markets.

Broadmoor has extensive experience on a wide variety of projects and has played an integral part in design and construction of some of the largest design-build projects in the New Orleans area.
Design-Build is an integrated project approach that delivers design and construction services under one contract with a single point of responsibility. Owners select design-build to achieve best value while meeting a demanding schedule, cost, and quality goals. Our in-house design team never compromises design functionality, innovation, or aesthetics.
Flexibility is one of Broadmoor's trademarks. We provide design-build services with the ultimate goal of providing outstanding quality and service to our clients. Our Design/Build team can assume complete project responsibility, from the conceptual stage to the completed project.
Phases of Design-Build Project Delivery:
- Conceptual Design
- Design Development
- Construction Documents
- Construction Administration
Broadmoor's professionals are widely trained with a unique interaction between design and construction personnel which streamlines the planning and pre-construction phase, as our architects understand construction and our builders understand design. The strength afforded by the combined resources affords a balance which allows us to work seamlessly as a team.
Why Design-Build: One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept though completion.
- Quicker Delivery Schedule
- Cost Savings
- Better Quality
- Singular Responsibility
- Decreased Administrative Burden
- Reduced Risk
- Reduced Litigation Claims
One of the primary reasons to choose Design-Build over the traditional construction project delivery is to shorten the length of time for a project. The enhanced coordination of design and construction methods, the coordination of MEP, collaboration between consultants can be a great source of streamlining a project in the field as well as on the drawing table.
But Design-Build is not simply overlapping construction activities. It is early design collaboration efforts and a single source of responsibility for the client. The team is on the same page at the beginning and throughout the entire process. At the outset, comprehensive understanding of the design, clear, proactive sequencing in procurement and in construction field operations yields a project with fewer surprises and fewer coordination issues.
Design-Build project methodology is seeing a resurgence in the marketplace on projects that are suited to this type of delivery. Broadmoor has been providing Design-Build for many years and continues to see it grow in the industry.
