Philosophy

"Every dollar an Owner invests in a new facility must act as a productive employee"

Dennis Herring
Found Partner


Our belief is that constructing a new building should be a fun collaborative process for both the Owner and the team designing and constructing the facility. Design-Build has proven to be the delivery method that best allows this win-win method of construction.

Over the years we have seen many Owners choose to use Design-Build for many reasons, normally out of frustration from their last experience or time-critical facility completion requirements. However, we always see Owners return to this delivery system once they experience the collaborative atmosphere of the project execution and see their increased return on Investment.

We know that an excellent building does not begin with the foundation- it begins with the programming and development of the new project. Our company is founded on providing the Owner with service and expertise that is “A little bit more than they contracted for and expected from us”

Approach

"Design Excellence is a result of Design-Build done right."

Mark Danielson
Founding Partner


Our Team’s approach is based on the most important element of the Design-Build process – effective and timely communication. Design-Build is more than a method of combining A/E teams and general contractors under one contract; rather, it is a collaborative effort in which the success of each party is directly tied to that of the overall team.

This motivates the designer to support the contractor and in turn, the contractor to support the designer which in turn mitigates risk for the Owner.

This process requires team members to have a thorough understanding of the Design-Build methodology. Our firm excels in, facilitating Design Excellence through our approach to design and construction management without stifling design innovation and aesthetics.
