One of the great differentiators for Bobbitt is our in-house design group – Bobbitt A&E. Very few design-build companies truly have site and architectural design, construction and permit coordination all under one roof. Close collaboration between our architects and construction team results in single-source responsibility for the entire project.
Designing by listening
Our architecture & engineering team – comprised of seasoned architects – starts every project by LISTENING. Since no two projects are alike, understanding the building owner’s needs and desires for their new facility is the critical first step with every successful project. We sit down with our client, talk through possibilities, sketch out designs, and provide ideas they may not have considered. We factor topography, buffers and traffic flow into the site design, so there are no surprises later on. Once we have a design approach in mind, we utilize CAD and 3-D modeling to give the client a clear vision of how the finished building will look.
We are patient in the design process to ensure the facility delivered meets the owner’s needs, goals and expectations.
Our process involves realistic budgeting throughout the design process. Because we work hand-in-hand with our in-house construction team, we are able to verify costs up front and eliminate upcharges that often occur when the architect and construction company are separate entities.
Besides our proven process, open communication and budgeting transparency, Bobbitt A&E has talented architects. Our designers are full of innovative ideas and can suggest architectural features that add aesthetic and practical value to a building.
When a project is completed, the entire Bobbitt project team reviews the process to identify what could be improved. This continuous dialogue and collaboration between our designers and construction managers helps us continually improve. Together with construction counterpart at Bobbitt Design Build, the Bobbitt A&E team is focused on delighting our customers. We are proud of the fact that our clients often give us referrals and many have returned to Bobbitt to design additional facilities.
