Design / Build
Accepting total responsibility for the design and construction of a complex and demanding project is the ultimate test for any construction company. At Coakley & Williams Construction, Inc. we routinely accept the challenge and as a result have established ourselves as one of the preeminent design-build contractors in the nation.
Over the last fifteen years, Coakley & Williams has developed strong alliances with a number of respected and reputable design firms who embrace the design-build philosophy, demand a commitment to design integrity, and recognize the organizational framework necessary to making a design-build project successful. Coakley & Williams has built its growth and reputation on providing exceptional design services within the design-build framework. This requires maintaining a sensitivity to the client's needs and desires, conforming with RFP or other contract requirements, adhering to budget constraints, and delivering design excellence.
As your design-builder, Coakley & Williams provides a single point of accountability for all architectural, engineering and pre-construction issues related to your project such as permit acquisition, utility authorization, systems analysis, consultant coordination, etc. Among many other benefits, this relieves the Owner of having to expend large amounts of time and money soliciting and supervising architects, engineers, specialty consultants, and contractors. Total responsibility is contractually in the hands of one party, usually at a guaranteed fixed price.
Design-build also offers other tangible benefits to the Owner. Among these are the capacity to fast-track a project, a guarantee on project cost early in the process, and protection from cost and schedule growth due to design errors and omissions.
Coakley & Williams design-build approach includes selecting the best design partner based on your project's specific goals and requirements, developing the most cost effective and efficient project solution without compromising design aesthetic, performance or function, and implementing our systematic, collaborative, and interactive design management process.
