The “Team or Hybrid” approach to home remodeling or custom home building provides certain benefits of the design-build and the design-bid-build methods. Like the design-bid-build method, the homeowner selects the architect and also the general contractor to work together as a 3-part team from the very start of the project.
This provides the homeowner some of the benefits of design-build, such as more control over budget and, often, lower costs than design-bid-build. This is because the builder is able to provide cost and construction information from the very start of the project. The architect can then design the project within what the homeowner wants to invest, and not have to scale back the design or use a lower quality contractor to stay within the budget. It also helps improve communications and project transfer from design to construction.
