We have seen a significant increase in the popularity of the design/build option in recent years as many clients realize the advantage of having us responsible for designing, managing and constructing the building. It has gained in popularity because it is one of the most efficient and cost-effective methods of managing a construction project.
Understanding Your Vision
Under this form of management, we meet with the owner or stakeholders, we listen to gain a full understanding of your vision and needs, and develop those ideas into designs. Once a design is finalized, we proceed with managing and building the project.
There is an appreciable increase in efficiencies with having one firm providing both design and build services as all communication and coordination occurs within our own team rather than across multiple organizations.
