Architect-Led Design-Build (ALDB)
A construction delivery method in which architects, engineers, construction experts, and trade professionals collaborate within a model that seamlessly integrates design principles and construction expertise where the architect, as owner-advocate, ensures high fidelity between project goals and outcomes.
How is WJC different?
At WJC the architect/designer also serves as Construction Manager. Therefore the project and the responsibility is never handed off from one to another. The people designing the building are the ones overseeing its construction. Ensuring continuity throughout the entire process. The designer oversees every step to prioritize design and construction according to Quality, Budget, and Schedule.
Owners have ONE Point-of-Contact and ONE Source-of-Accountability throughout the entire project.
WJC works directly with the owner serving as both designer and builder, coordinating the team of consultants and subcontractors, managing the process from Concept to Completion.
Cost and Schedule Certainty
We design with careful consideration of quality and feasibility so the budget and schedule are guaranteed much earlier in the process.
Architecture and Construction perspectives in the same room – from beginning to end. Efficiencies are identified, miscommunications are avoided, and cost-saving Solutions are Discovered.
Designers and trade professionals are positioned to Benefit from each others’ Insights – leading to high-caliber Results and desirable Outcomes.
WJC embraces complicated projects. A tricky site, intricate design, short timeline or tight budget. Our Continual Engagement with various partners fosters collaborative, anticipatory problem-solving.
