DESIGN / BUILD

UNLIKE MANY OTHERS, WE OFFER DESIGN/BUILD SERVICES IN HOUSE.  WITH ARCHITECTS, BUILDERS, AND MANAGERS UNDER THE SAME ROOF, WE HAVE BETTER COMMUNICATION AND COLLABORATION. OUR APPROACH IS TURN-KEY AND SEAMLESS. 

With our internal team of Architects, we are able to facilitate all aspects of the design process while closely monitoring the project budget and schedule (working in tandem with design) to ensure all your needs are clearly met. 

Our team of Architects and Project Managers collaborate to meet your vision in real-time. We have an increased sensitivity to design because we are builders – in the end, it means we are more knowledgeable regarding costs and constructability while understanding the nuances of design. Ultimately, you experience a better process that impacts value, cost, and schedule.

Our growing expertise in architecture helps us perfectly blend aesthetics and execution. We create beautiful and functional designs and apply strong construction methods to achieve your vision and protect your investment.

COLLABORATION =
LESS RISK & MISTAKES

Collaboration from the very beginning of the project provides a seamless process from project planning through owner occupancy.

PROJECT COSTS 
ARE REDUCED

Single-point responsibility allows for more accurate budget development, reduced timelines for design, fixed design fees, and a streamlined bidding process.

PROJECT IS 
COMPLETED FASTER

Working with both a streamlined design and bidding process accelerates the award of sub-contracts and allows construction to proceed quickly and effectively.  

HOW IT WORKS

The owner manages one contract and a single point of responsibility allowing the owner more control over the project and process.

 

The design/build team begins the project with an integrated team of design and construction experts who work collaboratively to ensure a seamless process of developing the project scope, creating design documents with constructability in mind, and budget checks throughout the process.
