Our Process

Our design-build process means that we take the responsibility out of your hands and handle every detail from a-z.

Is The Project Feasible?

Understanding the client’s desires, zoning, permits, and many other details help us to best guide the project to success.

Define Project Scope.

We determine how the client wants and needs align with what’s possible on the project site based on our research.

Study Design Options.

We partner with you, our client, to study design options and select the best way forward in schematic design.

Develop Final

In next steps, our team will develop the final design and construction drawings and submit to the building authority for approval.

Traditional Design-Bid-Build Method Versus Design/Build

Design-Bid-Build Model:

  Reactionary

  Compartmentalized

  Multiple points of contact/responsible parties

  Can foster adversarial relationships

  Limited visibility into construction costs until after construction drawings are complete

  Often costs more and takes longer

Design/Build Model:

  Proactive

  Integrated

  A single point of contact/responsible party

  Promotes collaborative relationships

  Preliminary design can be used to gain visibility into construction cost early in the process

  Often saves money and time
