As defined, the Design-Build method offers the client a single point of responsibility, thereby reducing client risk and overall cost. We are able to manage your project from conceptual design through construction as your primary contact. We have found that this way of working offers a smooth transition between design and construction, more attention to detail during construction, and a more effective line of communication for the entire team. We are uniquely able to analyze the cost of construction during early design phases, guiding the design process in a more focused way.
When working with other Architects as part of a team, we are able to quickly grasp the design intent and offer architectural detailing support if requested. We hold weekly or bi-weekly meetings with the Owner and Architect to outline the project schedule, upcoming details, review change orders, and discuss any questions the team may have.
We are experienced in all phases of residential design and construction. We offer schematic design/early design study, site planning, construction documents, and permitting. Full construction services include cost analysis, feasibility study, schedule analysis, construction, construction management, and client representation.
Our projects range from residential remodels, site planning, sustainable design and construction, landscape environments, hillside expansions and repair, in-house custom woodworking and concrete, boutique retail spaces, and on occasion industrial contemporary office renovations.
