Design Build

The concept of design build places the entire project under one cohesive umbrella.  At Guthrie General, Inc. Architectural and Interior Design, Project Management and Construction are completed by a single in house team. This significantly benefits the project owner in the reduction of time management and coordination between a number of partners, which in turn reduces costly misunderstandings.  Design/Build allows the client to deal with one group to manage the project from start to completion.

The construction project managers work with the in-house architects to improve design concepts and constructability.  This includes material cost savings, energy efficiency, functionality of the space and overall schedule enhancement.

The Design/Build approach streamlines project delivery with one agreement between the client and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork.

Guthrie General, Inc. has been in the construction industry since 1975 and incorporated In-House Design Build in 2004. Their primary focus is on Healthcare facilities construction in Arizona and California. 98% of their annual revenue is derived from repeat customers.
