Under the design/build approach, a team consisting of a general contractor, architect, and engineer is assembled to provide an owner with a one-source point of contact in order to design and build their proposed construction project.
This methodology promotes logistical economies, process efficiency and enhanced accountability.
Our staff is well-experienced and ideally-suited to this approach, and is equipped with an industry-specific database that provides the means to effectively monitor and control all aspects of a design/build project. As a project owner, you'll enjoy the associated advantages of reduced delivery time and increased accountability.
