Benefit of Combining Architecture and Construction
PHJ Architecture and Construction, LLC recognizes the unique and valuable benefits that this combination of Architecture and Construction can offer to its clients. Such benefits include the following:
Timeliness and Cost Effectiveness
Our design process involves communication between the architect and the site manager for each project, where construction details and costs are considered to eliminate surprises during construction. Where technical inquiries during construction may create delays under design-bid-build as well as design-build agreements, we are able to move the project along through constant communication. Where clients may present possible changes, our team is able to address design, detail and cost simultaneously, therefore further avoiding delays that could take weeks. The client, architect and builder all participate in developing the entire project budget. The process is efficient, productive, and costs are minimized.
Project schedule can be established upfront early in the process. A start date, and most importantly an end date can be firmly established and met.
When one dedicated, experienced professional is fully responsible for all aspects of a project from design to completion, the process flows smoothly. There is no "finger pointing" between the architect and the builder as we are the same company. We eliminate miscommunication and wasted time.Quality Workmanship
Owner/architect, Joseph L. Walker, III, takes enormous pride in his work, whether it is for his design or his construction. In addition, by virtue of his architecture profession (through regulatory standards that must be met) and his many years of personal experience, he oversees every project from beginning to end assuring the quality and consistency. The construction team that he supervises, with over 75 years of proven quality construction experience, assures the workmanship is of the highest quality down to the last detail.
