Design-Build Services

Acella Construction Corporation offers design-build services to those clients who would like a single source to design and construct their project. This approach has been effective for clients who desire to have the project constructed in the most expeditious manner, knowing the final cost and schedule for the project delivery prior to completing the design documents. The design-build approach has proven to be a method to control design costs by one source managing both aspects. Our design-build services include the following:

  • Conducting strategic alignment with talented and reputable design professionals including architects, structural engineers, civil engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, design build subcontractors and other various consultants to collectively provide complete design-build projects.
  • Appointing a team leader for the interaction with the client
  • Preparing a cost estimate and proposal for the design and construction of the project based upon preliminary design criteria and schematic layouts.
  • Maintaining standard design procedures for:
    • ascertaining the program requirements
    • preparing the various levels of design documents
    • code analysis and compliance
    • coordinating the various design disciplines to ensure a well coordinated project
    • construction details for construction
  • Providing a proposal and cost estimate for the project at schematic design levels
  • Managing the construction with the same approach as Construction Management or General Contracting but with the mindset that it is a design-build process
  • Providing one stop shopping for the owner to eliminate dealing with the numerous designers, consultants and contractors.

Working with Acella was great. They were always available to answer my questions and they kept me in the loop every step of the way. They were very flexible and patient and worked around our working schedule – sometimes coming in very early in the morning. Their work turned out wonderfully and they even painted a large wall that was not part of the scope to get the whole space looking shiny and new. This was my first renovation project and they made me look good! I would highly recommend Acella.
