  • INTEGRATED PROJECT SOLUTIONS - We understand our role on the project team and the need to support all team members with timely and accurate information.

  • COMPLETE COMMUNICATION - We seek to establish and maintain open, accurate and frequent communication throughout the life of the project. We recognize and understand the need to keep the client and team members informed to allow for timely decisions.



2019 Civic/Assembly national award - excellence El Cajon Animal Shelter

The first design-build project for the City of El Cajon turned into a great success for the city and the El Cajon Animal Shelter. By implementing design-build, the City of El Cajon leveraged early contractor feedback by receiving pricing at every design milestone. This allowed the team to build a unique facility that reflects the identity of the animal shelter and its goals. A ‘Fear-Free’ design goal meant that each decision was made to provide maximum benefit for the animals that would be visiting, and housed in, the shelter. By embracing the project-first mentality, the team was able to come together and create a model that the city will look to for future design-build projects.
