Frequently asked questions about our design-build services

Design-build refers to a construction delivery process where one entity is contracted to facilitate both
design and construction of the project. Harrison Homes is a residential design-build contractor,
providing the gamut of design and construction services: architectural design, floorplan design, exterior
and interior selections, procurement and vertical construction from plans through certificate of
occupancy. Harrison Homes can also contract for site development for the complete package of
residential construction fulfillment. Harrison is a one stop shop for design and construction for your
residential development.

Investors, developers and capital partners who own property for residential development for single-
family homes, townhomes or cottages often enlist Harrison Homes for design-build services. In the case
where a land developer has purchased and developed the lots, Harrison may be hired for architectural,
floorplan and interior design, and vertical construction. For investor groups and capital partners,
Harrison typically aids in the site development, in addition to the above services. Design and build
services are used for build to rent and build for sale residential products.

Partnering with a residential construction company that can handle both the project design and
construction allows the landowner or corporation to work with one organization, who then is
responsible for managing the entire process. The design-builder subcontracts out the necessary trades
and vendors for every phase of the project. They are the single point of contact for the landowner,
which simplifies the contract and the entire process. It’s proven to save both time and money, when
compared to the traditional Design-Bid-Build method. The number of change orders drops and
completion time often decreases, too.
