In the world of general contracting and tenant improvement, design and construction have always been kept separate. But Casco shattered that paradigm when it created the Casco Design Studio which works alongside the build team every step of the way. Our Design-Build team takes a client’s vision and creates permit-approved construction documents optimized for constructibility, budget and schedule.
*All of these stages can be done with (1) contact at Casco.
*Casco Designer & Contractor can help select the best building fit for client
* Client will need to coordinate & engage with at least 4 different vendors for various stages:
V1 = Construction Manager
V2 = Furniture Vendor
V3 = Architect/Designer
V4 = General Contractor
Designers and builders collaborate to define and meet budgets, allowing realistic pricing up-front. The team works together to create the best-possible solution at the best price.
One contract, a single primary contact person, and a united team working towards the goal—no errors or change orders (unless requested by a client). Projects move along more quickly and run more efficiently.
Decisions are made collectively from the start. There is no need to revisit the drawing board—the construction team shares beneficial insights that inform the design phase. Ongoing communication and planning between the teams from day one eliminates delays common in traditional build plans.
IHI Power Services
IHI Power Services, a service provider to the power generation industry, hired Casco Contractors to construct their new office space. Casco’s Design-Build Team worked seamlessly towards a common goal of vision and execution. The result is an extraordinary indoor workplace that integrates outdoor material the IHI team works with daily—rustic stick wood, metal, glass, raw concrete and unique tiles with a vintage warehouse window character.
