Architecture

On-staff architectural expertise

Having on-staff architects is a luxury to some construction companies. For us, it’s a vital part of delivering the best building experience possible. From master planning to green design, from soil conditions to site restrictions, our in-house architects are ready to use 3D Virtual Design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) to take your ideas to the next level.

Our commitment is to marry design with budget. It’s the heart of design/build and where we excel.

For projects committed to sustainable building, our two LEED® Accredited Professionals ensure designs are as green as you’d like them to be. And, while sustainability has reached new levels in recent years, all the pros in the world are useless unless they know your specific operating conditions. That’s why an energy audit is so valuable.

Energy Audits make you even more green

In addition to green building techniques, our focus on energy efficiency provides opportunities most construction companies can’t offer. Comprehensive Energy Audits identify your unique operations and the applications that will help most to increase your profits and reduce operating costs.

With our specialized partners, we perform a full energy audit of your facility, including:

  • Free pre-qualification walkthrough—a site visual inspection with an architect and engineer
  • Comprehensive Energy Audit—evaluation of several areas including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, controls, and building envelope (thermal imaging); resulting report includes a capital budget plan identifying energy reducing projects, costs associated with implementation, value saved, ROI, and simple payback. Typical audit cost is $0.03 to $0.05 per square foot, with up to 50% reimbursable by Focus on Energy.
