Our approach to working with our clients is to customize our services for their unique and particular requirements. If we are performing architectural services, we engage the client early on to assess as much information up front as possible. We create a working atmosphere of thought sharing and collaboration to understand and address specific necessities of the design program. Various design tools (i.e., BIM, 3D Modeling, Energy Analysis, etc.) are utilized, which provides a realistic outcome of the design progression. As Construction Managers or Construction Administrators, our emphasis is evaluation, constructability and risk management for our clients. We “de-construct” the production from Pre-Construction activities to Closeout and determine the crucial elements of the project. The end results benefit the project team by creating benchmarks and metrics. Sophisticated Owners are the norm of the day and should be treated that way for the most successful and realistic outcome.
I D & C creates a methodical approach to design and construction projects. We meld sustainability, environmentally correctness and technologies into schemes that are functional, address our clients’ requirements and complement their locations. Our mindset is to capture the essence of local symbiotic relationships…through integrated design, construction and multi-purpose functionality of targeted elements. Environmental efficiencies would minimize the need to introduce outside features and augment our “built environment.” Through an appreciation of our surroundings, continued education of materials/methods and a comprehensive sustainable direction, we understand how to alter our surroundings with the least negative impact.
I D & C distinguishes itself from other firms by being capable to design and construct your project through our in-house professional staff. Our business model consists of Architectural/Interior design, augmented by Construction services, which completes our “golden circle” of professional services. We offer the expertise of seasoned constructors, managers and administrators with that of innovative and creative architecture. By having a significant background in the construction industry (completed more than 3 million square feet of new or renovated space); we can manage many aspects of the design and construction strategy. As a “start-to-finish” single source for all of your conceptual design through construction requirements, we simplify the project team's labor and maximize proficiencies. Some of the project delivery systems that we incorporate include Construction Management, Design/Build, Cost plus Fee and Integrated Project Delivery systems. We garnish our Subcontractors and Owners relationships, so we encourage collaboration very early in the event. Creating an atmosphere of partnerships with the design, construction and development participants, produces mutual respect and common goal mentality…while allowing the resourceful union of exploration, problem solving and the continuous evolution of the Owners' ambitions.
