Remember the days of your childhood? You’ve planned your whole school year around October 31 – the night you’ll collect a year’s worth of candy. You’ve determined the best costume and maybe you and your friends have planned to dress up as a group.
All of the details of this cold, autumn night have been planned down to the size of your pillowcase – hoping it will be filled with your favorites.
Yet, you’ve put those hopes and dreams in a random group of people.
What’s the return of investment on your costume when your loot is dumped out on the carpet? There’s no greater disappointment to a child, after canvasing and collecting for hours, when all of his candy-filled dreams have ended, and all that represents his hard work are Twizzlers and Pixie Sticks.
Fast forward twenty years.
You’re a business owner. You’ve developed and planned your concept, ideas, and brand for years. You’re finally leasing a space, you’ve got drawings from an architect, and it’s time to put them out to bid.
Will you rely upon random door knocks?
“Trick or Treat!”
Of course, we advocate the design-build method, but should you choose design-bid-build as in this scenario, why not choose contractors you trust?
