DESIGN + BUILD
We are a full service design and build firm that provides professional design, planning, and general contracting. We offer comprehensive service from “conception to completion.” The advantage of the design and build model is that the client, builder, and designer are all in collaboration from the start. This method of collaboration helps eliminate gaps in communication, which in turn insures that projects are built to the highest standards, meet the clients vision, and stay on budget. The design and build model is particularly advantageous when building super energy efficient buildings.
The design process is iterative and cooperative. We are here to help the client articulate and synthesize their vision in an architectural language that suites them and the site, while maintaining our firm’s commitment to creating super energy efficient buildings. We provide programmatic and design refinement through sketches, 3-D computer renderings, models and ultimately construction documents. Although we are a small firm we have been working in BIM since 2010. A range of design products can be offered, depending on your budget.
As a general contracting firm we are able to manage the project in its entirety or work on specific components. We are interested in projects of all sizes and budgets that are committed ecological practices. On projects that we act as a general contractor, we hold preconstruction meetings with our sub-contractors to brief them on the project and look for ways to save time and money. The building process is scheduled tightly and executed accurately with a keen eye on the budget and overall objectives.
We can offer our design or contracting services separately and are willing to work with your architect, designer, or contractor in an cooperative manner. This maybe necessary if your building project is outside our local area.
