An ARCHITECT will tell you he knows exactly what you want, but too often you end up with what he likes. This is often a result of the architect’s lack of stylistic range, and more importantly, a lack of understanding of your real needs.
A CONTRACTOR will tell you he knows what you need and you will likely get a well executed building with no real design elements. This is because a contractor’s expertise is the understanding and execution of building systems, not their integration of design into a cohesive project scheme.
What is needed, is an individual who understands both how to design and how to build. Berkley Construction specializes in integrating both design and construction in order to provide the best bang for your buck; this approach is called DESIGN-BUILD. There are many Design-Build firms out there, so why choose us?
Everyone talks about cost and occasionally the clients’ needs, but few have a system that can effectively integrate and manage these into a quality project. That is where we are different. Berkley Construction manages the right team to effectively produce quality results by understanding the value in very important items that most others overlook. We will spend quality time with you to really find out what is important to you now and in your future. We then assess your individual desires and your budget and do our best to inform you of what can realistically be accomplished based on the information presented.
As your project develops, and becomes clearer, we will collaborate with you to ensure the budget is in line with your desires. In addition, over the course of the process, you the client will understand the cost implications of your choices, therefore bringing your priorities to the surface which will then become the backbone of your project. Now, with a clear set of priorities, a direction can be charted to integrate these into a cohesive scheme that will demonstrate the most effective use of construction to achieve the design intention. In short the right people in the right system - Better Approach, Better Results.
