During the 1980′s we took notice of the adversarial relationship created when separate architecture firms and general contractors are brought together to complete a project. The owner, wanting the best price, trusts the architect to keep plans within budget. However, when the plans are turned over to the contractor thousands of dollars later, there are missing items and issues left un-addressed. This results in costly change orders and can really break one’s budget as new things keep popping up.
With design/build, this adversarial relationship does not exist. We get things right the first time because we are the ones who take responsibility for the entire project at the end of the day. And we like it that way. It enables us to have complete control over your project and control costs more effectively, but it also makes the process easier on the owner as we are the only firm you need to contact from planning to completion. Our firm has experience designing and building a great variety of projects. Since we all live and work here in Southern California, we know the area, the regulations and have a genuine interest in seeing the area grow beautifully.
