Our Proven designBUILD Process Integrates Design and Construction Services

The most effective and most popular method used to deliver construction projects in America is the design-build approach. This approach means that one entity, the design-builder, enters into a single contract with the owner to provide both design and construction services.  The benefits of sole-source responsibility for both design and construction include:

  • Greater cost efficiencies with fewer change orders
  • Earlier knowledge of total project costs
  • Shared responsibility for the design, budget, and schedule
  • Quicker project delivery through superior collaboration

Morton’s integrated and construction-led design process includes overlapped design and construction. From concept to completion, your Morton sales consultant and project manager will guide you through each of these phases.

We developed the designBUILD process with our customer in mind, as it enables us to deliver projects that meet your scope, schedule, and budget. This alleviates stress, eliminates time loss, and ultimately reduces the overall project cost, as our design fees are nominal and included as part of the construction package.

How Does it Work?

A dedicated team at Morton consisting of architects, project managers, engineers, drafting technicians, project estimators, and construction management professionals work with you and your local Morton sales consultant from the beginning to end of your construction project.

This collaborative and vertically-integrated team all utilize the same four-phase project delivery system process to ensure the project stays within budget and on schedule.
