What is Design-Build?

With increasing demand for tighter schedules, an early commitment to fixed price, and a single point of accountability, the market is turning to design build as the preferred project method. As design builders, we are able to assemble a design team for you that will accomplish your vision within the budget constraints you may have.   Since we are able to do the designing FOR you, with your budget in mind, we are able to save time, money and headaches.  Often a design is created architecturally, without the cost elements factored into the equation.  As experienced builders with highly skilled estimating capabilities, we are able to find creative solutions that will fit your functional, aesthetic and financial needs.  We are able to work with existing structures, to re-construct them in a way that allows the space to best suit your needs.

  • Land acquisition and development
    We are informed and aware of available building sites, codes and projected development areas.

The Design-Build Process

There is a process in design-building that allows for a vision of the end result and accurate plans that produce a cost-effective end result.

  • Documentation
    Acquire the necessary documents for land development, which may consist of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP), soils report, topographic map, certified land survey, traffic study, and other possible requirements.
  • Define the Need
    A detailed survey and profile of the building size, style and specifications that will best suit you.
  • Develop the Design
    A master site plan, floor plan, and elevation are custom designed to meet your unique needs.
  • Determine the Cost
    An accurate, realistic budget is prepared based on the preliminary design.
  • Prepare
    Architectural and engineering drawings are prepared for final pricing and permitting.
  • Pricing
    A guaranteed Maximum Price is presented based on the owner’s complete satisfaction with the final design drawings.
