Design & Build Construction

The Complete Package

October 5 operates on the Design-Build principle, which means both the design and construction are managed by us. We provide a single point of responsibility (“one-stop shopping”.) October 5 is responsible for the entire project from beginning to completion, this reduces overall risks and costs. Design-build construction is an alternative to design-bid-build construction. Under the latter approach, design and construction are split - separate entities, separate contracts, separate work. In general, design-build, design-bid-build and construction management are the three most common project delivery systems in the United States. However, over the past 15 years, design-build construction has become increasingly popular, especially in Southern California, making this delivery method one of the most significant trends in design and construction these days.

Start To Finish

October 5 offers a streamlined design-build-construction delivery method. The design-build construction process consists of six steps:

  1. Site Visit
  2. Conceptual Design Phase
  3. Design Documents
  4. Construction Documents
  5. Ordering Finish Materials
  6. Begin Construction
This delivery sequence has myriad benefits for the home owner. We ensure design-decisions and construction costs are consistent and completely integrated. Contractor and architect collaborate, while you are able to constantly communicate with them.


Your input is highly valued as the design-build process revolves around your vision. This also helps control costs and effectively schedules the projects. Moreover, October 5's collaborative communication eliminates ambiguities regarding the owner's expectations, and focuses on the completion of a quality project without unnecessary delays. Lastly, our integrative approach acknowledges and welcomes the interaction of form and function. This understanding removes potential maintenance issues that can appear years after your project is completed.
