By offering Architectural Design and Construction Management services under the same roof, we have the ability to take public projects seamlessly from concept to construction completion. This approach distinguishes us from other professional service firms and earns us high marks from the many clients who appreciate this extremely effective model of project delivery.
A single service provider means a single contract.
Our CM staff works under the same roof with our architectural staff and the two groups collaborate daily on projects. On the job and communicating from day one, we establish and accomplish complex phasing, maintain daily control of the budget and interpret and implement the design intent behind our drawings.
We have a strong incentive to get it right.
As licensed professionals, we are liable for every job we design. The checks and balances of handling both disciplines serve to keep us accountable and the project on track. We uncover value engineering and constructability issues early and benefit from multiple levels of quality control review.
It’s like design-build for the public sector.
The equation works well for trade contractors as well as owners. Construction documents are well coordinated resulting in lower bids, and traditional construction mark-ups are reduced because there are more prime contractors and fewer sub-contractors. CSArch closely tracks actual costs versus estimates and provides detailed reports in a format that allows owners to easily prepare final cost reports.
