Design-Build Experience

Over the years, the firm’s practice has developed with the notion that the best buildings result from a fully interactive collaboration with enlightened clients and highly skilled builders. Through the early engagement of construction professionals in the design process, we have been able to overcome both economic constraints and scheduling difficulties. The builders’ accurate knowledge of cost fluctuations, creativity in the means and methods of erection, and experience in the sequence and separation of construction are valuable elements that we use to the greatest benefit for our clients. Our arrangements have been as varied as the projects for which they were used, but the results have always been successful and profitable for all parties.

Design-Build   Working under the direction of a construction professional, we provide a design that accompanies a builder’s cost and schedule proposal.

Negotiated Bid   Working closely with a construction professional selected by the client, we provide a design that is assured to meet a predetermined cost and schedule.

Design-Assist   Utilizing pre-construction participation from construction professionals acting as independent advisors, in arrangements without contracting for construction.

Under these teamwork arrangements, our clients have included speculative developers, private corporations, governmental agencies, and other architects. Past projects have included phased construction, alternate design bidding, fast-track construction, and other cost and time saving programs. Many projects have utilized new materials and assemblies, creative means and methods, and the carefully considered separation of the work into manageable packages. space1
