Design-build is a method of completing a project where the architecture and construction services are provided by a single source. Having the architect fully engaged in the construction of the project ensures the most seamless transfer of information and the highest level of commitment to the successful completion of the project.
Within our studio we relish the opportunity to lead the design as well as the construction and be a single point of contact and interaction for our clients. But we do not work in isolation. We engage with a team of experienced tradespeople early in the design process to find creative and intelligent solutions to incorporate into our design. This collaboration and investment by tradespeople enables us to minimize conflict during construction and better manage our client’s budgets and schedules through all phases of a project.
While not all our projects are completed through this method our experience and understanding of the construction process allows us to be effective communicators and purposeful advocates for all our projects.
