Commercial & Industrial Design-Build Process

At Chester, Inc Architectural & Construction Services, we take the simplest approach to design-build construction. The seamless, team work method integrates both the architectural and construction process for a complete value-add to our customers and gives the owner a single contract and single point of responsibility. This reduces the need for multiple contracts with architects, engineers, contractors and construction managers.

Communication is also enhanced between the design-builder and the owner, which translates to the owner having more and ongoing input into the project. Our teams work together from inception to completion formulating an open communication and purposeful collaboration delivering immediate results.

The basis for collaboration is simple– owners, commercial architects, sales and project engineers gathering, sharing and creating, resulting in a more cost-effective, streamlined solution; turning ideas into realities!

After identifying the ideal solution, preliminary drawings progress into detailed design and schematics, the Chester, Inc Architectural and Services team will then collaborate to produce cost estimates. At the conclusion of this process, the owners will receive a preliminary project schedule and contract drawings used to construct a facility.

Commercial & Industrial General Contractor Services

Once the architectural design process begins, time will be saved by eliminating additional bid phases to select a general contractor. Furthermore, the Chester, Inc Architectural and Construction Services team will start prepping your job site while design progressions, and elements of construction can begin during the design phase. By overlying construction and design, the Chester, Inc team will deliver a timely build that makes the most well-organized schedules possible. You’ll still have a construction team, formidable subcontractors, vendors and all the same quality standards as you would in other methods, but the job will get done more quickly, efficiently, and adhere clearly to a defined scope with total accountability.
