When selecting an architecture firm, it’s important to understand the difference between the types of services each one offers so you will know what to expect. A firm that exclusively offers design and drawings means that it creates the design and drawings and then hands them off to the client. A company that offers design through construction administration creates the design and drawings, assists with bidding, reviews shop drawings and submittals, and verifies in the field that the work conforms to the design.
A design build firm controls every aspect of the project from design and construction administration all the way through completed construction. However, not all design build firms are created equal. Many are contractors who have a designer on staff, or who hire outside designers or architects. In other words, construction is the heartbeat of the company.
Until now, your most comprehensive choice was a design build firm. SweisKloss, in contrast, is a design + construct firm. SweisKloss takes projects from the initial design inspiration through the entire building process in a streamlined, synergistic workflow, including site selection, building construction, interior design, exterior design, all construction and installation. This distinction is important if you’re looking for a custom, creative, and nuanced design from a team that sees each project’s potential through to completion. From residential and commercial interior and architectural design to construction management, the company’s innovation, artistry and efficiency are all integrated into one seamless project.
Together the design + construct team at SweisKloss creates sustainable, functional and visually dynamic spaces that enhance living and working experiences. Projects range from custom homes, residential additions and remodels to commercial design, making SweisKloss an ideal partner for all of your design + construct projects.
