Designing an exceptional commercial property requires a combination of fulfilling practical needs, while showcasing the aesthetic qualities desired by the client. Shepherding a design from the inception (as blueprints and renderings) to the finished project is an essential role. When serving on projects as the design-build construction company, we serve to help you finalize your design as well as taking the management steps to bring it across the finish line. Whether a small custom job or a large-scale commercial undertaking, we approach each design-build project with the same care and skill earned through decades of experience.
When the build truly matters, clients often choose to trust the design of the project to a proven architect with a vision they trust. At Ames Construction, we have relationships with leading architectural firms throughout the state. When working as a design-build construction firm, we commission work from numerous leading architects with whom we have long standing relationships. We look forward to being the design-build construction partner you trust with your project.
Ames is able to handle all of the work that brings a project from inception to completion. While every build is different, our design-build contracting services generally focus on working with you to finalize the design and then leading the build from the ground-up. These are the steps we follow in the design-build process:
Understand Your Project Needs The first step we take is to listen and truly understand the vison of your project to be able to best represent your needs.
Connect with Architects and Design Firms Next, we match your project to one or more leading architectural and design firms. We help you decide on the partner with the right vision for your project.
Review Drawings, Blueprints, & 3D Renderings After this, your Ames team will work with you to review and revise all design materials.
Manage Architect Relationship throughout the Build Finally, we represent your interests throughout the entire build, managing the architect relationship, and ensuring the construction goes smoothly.
Our advantages as a design-build contractor are through our experience and the productive professional relationships that our company culture facilitates. The decades of construction and design experience of our team make them ideal partners for design collaboration. While every project is absolutely unique, it always helps to be surrounded by professionals who have shown success guiding similar projects. The Ames difference is clear from the very first conversation – reach out to one of our professionals to start discussing your project.Get Quote
I was pleased to work with Ames Construction for the design/build renovation project at Ephrata Church of the Brethren. I have worked with Ames for many years and we’ve had a great relationship. This project was no exception. Together we were able to come up with an outstanding design and plan to accomplish ECOB’s goals. I will also say that the team at ECOB was great to work with as well. This project was an exceptional collaboration between architect, owner, and general contractor. I would recommend Ames to anyone looking for a professional, conscientious commercial general contractor.
