DesignThe design/build approach replaces the traditional method of awarding separate contracts for design and for construction. On a design/build job, Caspar and architect/engineer are allied and work together to serve the owner. Caspar and the architect/engineer work as a TEAM to design and build a project that satisfies the needs of the owner.

This TEAM approach eliminates the tendency to blame someone else if a discrepancy occurs. TEAM members focus on solving problems rather than placing blame.
