DESIGN & BUILD
Design + Build
In the world of general contracting and tenant improvement, design and construction have always been kept separate. But Casco broke free of that paradigm when it created its in-house Casco Design Studio that works alongside the build team every step of the way. This one-stop-shop approach simplifies the entire process—from initial plans to final construction. Working as one team reduces confusion and enhances clear communication for dynamic results.
The Traditional Design-Bid-Build Process
In the traditional Design-Bid-Build Process, clients are required to coordinate with at least four difference vendors for various stages - Construction Manager, Architect/Designer, Furniture Vendor, General Contractor.
VS. Casco's Design-Build Process
All stages of design & construction are consolidated with one contract at Casco.
Designers and builders collaborate to define and meet budgets, allowing realistic pricing up-front. The team works together to create the best-possible solution at the best price.
One contract, a single primary contact person, and a united team working towards the goal—no errors or change orders (unless requested by a client). Projects move along more quickly and run more efficiently.
Decisions are made collectively from the start. There is no need to revisit the drawing board—the construction team shares beneficial insights that inform the design phase. Ongoing communication and planning between the teams from day one eliminates delays common in traditional build plans.
IHI Power Services
IHI Power Services, a service provider to the power generation industry, hired Casco Contractors to construct their new office space. Casco’s Design + Build Team worked seamlessly towards a common goal of vision and execution. The result is an extraordinary indoor workplace that integrates outdoor material the IHI team works with daily—rustic stick wood, metal, glass, raw concrete and unique tiles with a vintage warehouse window character.
