Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the design-build team – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion. Design-build is also known as design/construct and single-source responsibility. Across the country and around the world, design-build successfully delivers office buildings, schools, stadiums, transportation and water infrastructure projects with superior results.
Design-build is an alternative to design-bid-build. Under the latter approach, design and construction are split – separate entities, separate contracts, separate work.
Construction management design-bid-build and design build are the three project delivery systems most commonly employed in North America. Over the past 15 years, use of design-build has greatly accelerated in the United States, making this delivery method one of the most significant trends in design and construction today. Contract, One Integrated Team
Design-build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork. United from the outset of every project, an integrated team readily incorporates BIM and LEED certification goals.
We have enjoyed a great relationship with Kevin Barker, Nayan Patel, and the entire SCBCC team for over 12 years now, and they truly understand servicing a client from the inception of an idea turning over the finished project.

This Library project has been very challenging, the S.C. Barker team has been instrumental thought every phase to accommodate our needs. S.C. Barker’s staff is professional, organized, and very pleasant to work with and has excellent relationships with all the representatives of the library.
Miguel J. Vicente
South Georgia Library, Regional Director
Despite my knowing that SC Barker had clients all over town I always felt like I was their only customer. For this and many other reasons, I can give S.C. Barker Construction my unqualified endorsement and recommendation.
Spinoso Real Estate Group, General Manager
The successful completion of the construction of this facility was accomplished with a sophisticated network of quality subcontractors, organized project management, committed to quality control, and dedication to excellent results.
Nobles Director of Facilities and Maintenance, Valdosta City Schools
We have chosen over the years, to do all our projects with SCBCC as a Design-Build relationship. We have found great value in this relationship through their process of preconstruction/design, to construct our facilities, and through the warranty period.
After their assistance in the budgeting of the project, I felt like it was in my best interest to fast-tracking the project to have SCBCC do the project with a Cost-Plus approach. I knew from my previous experience with SCBCC I could trust them in a Cost-Plus approach and that they would make decisions regarding budget as if it was their own money.
President Fellowship Home Senior Living
Kevin and his staff have been honest and fair in our dealings and have always been interested in the successful and satisfactory completion of the job. Without and reservation, I can highly recommend S.C. Barker Construction Company for your next job.
It was indeed a pleasure to work with the S.C. Barker Construction Company and their project staff. Without hesitation, we would again welcome the opportunity to work with this company in the future.
