We are a construction start-up led by architect-inventors. As architects, we bring a unique understanding to the design-build process that empowers workers, re-thinks construction techniques, reduces liabilities and creates a higher quality physical world to the planet. As builders, we seek to humble architecture through the realities of site and building culture.
Design-Build is a construction delivery method that provides owners with a single-point of contact through the design and construction process. In the traditional ‘design-bid-build’ progression, architects and contractors have separate engagements with the owner. Owners end up managing their own sub-contractors and consultants, ultimately becoming the middlemen in communication and mediators in disputes.
Combining the role of architect and builder within our work, we remove the legal, cultural, technical, and adversarial divide that the two fields have developed in typical practice. Understanding ‘building’ through both disciplines allows for little to no barrier of communication and a unified flow of work. Design-Build methods deliver the best value by evaluating budget solutions early in the design process and by creating continuous price estimates as the design progresses.
