The cornerstone of IWCD’s success is in our Design-Build process. As a ‘full service’ organization, IWCD can provide clients with guidance and direction from the first stages of design, through development approval with local officials, the construction process, all the way to occupancy. Our team of dedicated and conscientious employees is there throughout the process to facilitate any and all of the owner’s needs and ensure the project is a successful one. Our goal is to ensure the client’s needs/wants are met…in the most economical way possible.
The process of getting a project through the various municipal or City design and permit stages is immense. The service IWCD offers includes not only help through the difficult preliminary stages of a project, but also delivers value engineering by designing a building economically, and presenting and advising on various sustainable construction methods and materials. Through the 3-9 month design period we are able to build a solid client-customer relationship, since the focus of the design-build process is the customer and what their needs and wants are. The coordination of their unique requirements is an aspect of the process that bid project owners do not receive because they focus on the lowest price for a pre-determined design.
