One of A&F's strengths as a design-build firm happens long before any construction is started. Taking the time to thoroughly understand the needs of the customer is critical to the success of the project. A&F's team has routinely worked with some of the best Houston Architects on several design-build projects and can assist you with the following services:
Throughout this process A&F is conscientious of the client's budget and strives to attain the best price/value relationship.
A&F's commitment is to deliver the kind of project that exceeds the customer's expectations. A&F has one of the lowest warranty call statistics in the industry which tells their customers that they are getting a quality product. This is the commitment A&F makes when they build your project:
Project Delivery Methods
“One Stop Shopping” combines both design and construction under the authority of the GC. This allows design to focus on the customer's needs but controlled by an established budget. The two “best seller” benefits are the speed of the project and no change orders.
A proven traditional method that has been around forever. The owner hires the design team direct and then selects GC’s to bid the project. Allows us to bid your work and save you money.
Allows for an owner to hire a GC without the drawings being 100% complete. The GMAX (guaranteed maximum price) gives the owner a "not to exceed" price which protects them while the drawings are being completed.
This method is very similar to Design/Build but adds a GMAX to insure maximum pricing. The design and construction is contracted separately to the owner but works together from day one to control the budget.
We offer this service to customers who want to contract directly with subcontractors and design teams. This includes project management/supervision of preconstruction services and all construction at a set CM fee. Let us share our team's experience on your next project.
