Design + Build = The Best Way

The term design/build is becoming more and more prevalent in the remodeling industry today. This makes sense, as having the design and construction players on the same team is clearly the most efficient way to get from point A to point B in any renovation project.
Design/build is relatively generic term though, as there are a number of ways to achieve this from architect and builder relationships to general contractors who employ designers. We believe LivCo is design/build in the truest sense of the term.
Co-founded and co-owned by both an architect and a builder, our design experience directly influences our construction and our building experience directly influences our architecture.

Gone are the days of “back to the drawing board” and handing off to another company – LivCo is one companyand one team, working for one client, with nothing lost in translation.

Triangle of Trust

Trust is paramount to our process. Trust that LivCo is built and operates with our clients’ best interests always in mind. The three parties present in every project are the owner, architect, and builder. In the traditional design-bid-build model; these three often sit on different sides of the table, pointing fingers at each other; what we call the triangle of distrust. In the LivCo process design is held accountable to construction, and construction is held accountable to design. And our single team is held accountable to our clients.

Architects Born to Build

We love to draw, but we also love to build; so every project starts our design process with a goal get constructed. If we design a project that our clients love, but it is too expensive or impossible to build, that is no fun for anyone, and frankly not a very good use of everyone’s time. With our architectural services impacted by real cost data from construction; we are able to develop construction budgets earlier, as well as engage and solve each projects constructability sooner.
