Whether you are expanding your practice, building a new stand-alone, or starting a new practice, designing and constructing the new space can be a daunting task. With the right team, however, this does not have to be the case. A qualified and integrated team can consider your vision and needs, ask appropriate questions, and guide you through the entire process. Because your time is valuable, they can help you handle issues such as costs and coordinating all construction activities.
When designing and constructing any space, there are many variables to consider. Do you want to purchase land and build a facility from the ground up? Have you found space in an existing building that you would like to lease? Maybe you’ve found an existing building that you’d like to buy and repurpose. Each of these options comes with its own advantages and disadvantages, as well as considerations, both legal and practical. A professional design/build team can help you choose the best option to suit your needs, lay out an efficient and functional design plan, and count all project costs prior to moving forward into final construction.
In the past, the way that owners would obtain a design for their project is to go directly to an architect/engineer who would prepare a beautiful design that meets their needs. The problem, however, often would be that the design exceeded the budget. In order to move forward, redesigns and compromises would have to be made, costing valuable lost time and money.
A professional design/build team allows you to have confidence that you will receive quality work and service at a reasonable price. Working closely together with the team ensures that you will end up with a design that suits both your needs and your budget. As the project progresses, the team can help handle the many gears that must be dealt with in order to successfully reach completion.
