An owner’s guide to a simplified and responsible procurement process.
Confidence in your procurement method comes from a Design + Builder with a decades-long track record for client satisfaction. With a 96% client return rate, Loven Contracting has the vetted and tested methodologies necessary for successful Design + Build delivery, including a single point of responsibility, transparent processes, and the teamwork inherent in a pre-established contractor/architect relationship. All of this is coordinated through a single simplified contract, thereby reducing the owner’s required time dedicated to administration when compared to two-contract procurement methods.

The Design + Build Advantage for Post COVID-19 Construction
There are multiple considerations for Owners in a post COVID-19 world related to customer and employee health, liability, connectivity, and the maintenance of your revenue streams. Loven Contracting and our WELL™ and SITES™ certified design partners have years of experience working within rigorous healthcare standards and are applying this expertise in a wide range of project types today.
From best practices in HVAC design, to understanding the impact of healthy building requirements on your energy efficiency targets, we will help you to separate fact from fiction in the application of these new building requirements. Designing for both efficient and healthy environments occurs at the earliest stages of your project, and as your Design + Builder, we act as your advocate in understanding the best approaches.
Why Design + Build?
Design + Build offers the opportunity for active participation by all team members from the start of the process. By incorporating the knowledge and imagination of your experienced contractor and design partners, this procurement method enables creative solutions that may not be possible when one of the partners enters the relationship later in the project development process. Successful Design + Build partnerships emphasize clear communication in the preconstruction phase to solve constructability and estimating challenges early in the project.
