At the heart of every truly great building design, is an organic connection with the structure and its surroundings. On the interior, this is evident with the ease of flow between one room and another, and on the exterior, the transition to the natural environment should be pleasing and relatively effortless—employing both function and form. This is the framework Andrew uses for every design project. Whether a simple addition, renovation, outbuilding, or full-scale residence, we are happy to provide any level of assistance with the design development and/or construction.
On the design side, Andrew works closely with clients to expose their vision, then lends his own experience and flair to produce drawings at the schematic level. Once the preliminary design is approved, clients can move to the estimating phase or directly into the production of construction level plans, elevations, and details. On the build side of this process, Andrew can work quite efficiently at conveying the design ideas to the specialists where nothing is lost in translation.
The design-build process has been proven by the Construction Industry Institute to deliver projects faster, have better cost control, better schedule control, and have the inherent advantage of single-source responsibility. Other benefits include: a greater focus on quality assurance through continuous involvement by the designer throughout the project’s development; cost savings realized by having an integrated team geared towards efficiency and innovation; and, by easing the burden on the owner by allowing them to focus on the project rather than managing separate relationships with a design professional and contractor. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time and insures that the owner’s original intent is met.
