Proactive Teamwork

The Level 10 approach to construction is naturally proactive, which lends itself to collaborative project delivery methods, including design-build. We start by bringing all members of the project team together at the earliest possible stage of design. With open communication and close collaboration, design-build can remove many of a project’s uncertainties, while lowering costs and speeding up delivery time.

Specific benefits of a design-build approach include:

  • Singular responsibility for cost, schedule and performance
  • Reduced owner risk
  • Reduction of change orders and better quality
  • Faster delivery
  • Cost savings

Level 10’s proven preconstruction capabilities, when coupled with our application of Lean construction concepts, allow us to complete successful design-build projects consistently over time. We are also a member of the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) and many of our executives are DBIA Associates.


[UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center 4th Floor Buildout] was a design-build project with great results, including being delivered three days ahead of schedule and within budget. Early collaboration with UCSF and project stakeholders also helped us understand the client's need for stringent noise and dust mitigation, given that we were to build the project in an occupied medical research building with sensitive research operations on the 5th floor.
