[White Paper] Opus DB3™ Approach Enhances Value and Efficiency


Whether expanding for growth, optimizing efficiencies or creating an inspiring environment, every building project starts with a unique purpose. The design and build process you choose will have a significant impact on how accurately and efficiently your vision comes to life. The Opus DB3 project delivery method was developed to help clients achieve greater value, within any budget, by maximizing quality, efficiency, and aesthetics to achieve their goals.

Opus DB3 is a truly integrated design-build approach unlike no other. It is a holistic, client-centered approach to design-build project delivery, built on the foundation pioneered by Opus founder, Gerry Rauenhorst, more than 60 years ago, and continuously improved over the years as client needs evolve. It differs from the traditional Design-Bid-Build process, managed by a general contractor, in that it fully integrates all stakeholders–client, architect, and builder–for meaningful collaboration between parties from the day the project starts until the last detail is finished. 

This collaboration results in maximum client value through:

  • Achieving best possible design value for the cost
  • Getting guaranteed maximum cost sooner
  • Completing project faster
  • Mitigating risk throughout
