Automated Parking—Is it the Right Fit?
In any construction project, complexity is a given. Nothing is simple. No one person has all the answers. That’s why we start every project by asking the right questions. Our job is to understand your vision and priorities. The experience you want to create. And the shape of the world you want to leave behind.
Preconstruction is the magic ingredient in the construction recipe, assuring a high-quality result with less risk. As a project partner, we take a collaborative, proactive approach to preconstruction by facilitating the involvement of the construction team, MEP experts, and the end user. This helps identify potential issues or complicating factors early in the process, so we can find constructive solutions before we put hammer to nail.
Actively providing cost and constructability input throughout the design phase, our goal is to position the project team to make the best possible decisions with the end in mind. The result is a more streamlined, cost-effective process that mitigates risk and delivers exceptional value.
The basic tenets of an integrated design and construction have always been at the heart of our approach: deep collaboration, holistic thinking, proactive planning and scheduling, waste reduction, enhanced sustainability, and a company culture that embraces continuous learning and innovation. We bring owners, architects, engineers, and subcontractors into the circle as partners, not specialists in silos. This harnesses the talents and insights of all participants, so that we deliver your vision with greater predictability and confidence.
With experience in all areas of alternative delivery including Lean, Design-Build, and Integrated Project Delivery [IPD], our goal remains the same: transform the way projects are delivered to create value across all fronts and assure a high-quality experience from start to finish.
The cornerstone of every successful construction project is people. The highly skilled carpenters, operating engineers, cement masons, and laborers who transform basic materials into brilliant masterpieces. With self-performed work, we tap into a deep well of our own experienced craftspeople - some second- and third- generation employees. With full control over our own resources, we assure the right crews and specialists are on-site at the right times to drive your project to completion, with greater schedule certainty and the highest possible quality.
In March 2023, the newly rebranded Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center added a six-story, 150,000 square foot clinical expansion [Building 2] to its original cancer care center, formerly known as the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. This project is an example of a commissioning process done right, and I’d like to show you how the project team did it.
