Vancouver, WA Design-Build Firms
Archonomics finds inspired design solutions for our clients, operating within the real constraints of space, budget, and environmental impact. Design starts with a feeling that the walls around us can offer more, that our environment must evolve to fit into our current and future needs. The staff at Archonomics helps our clients determine an appropriate course of action for allowing this evolution, knowing from experience when to renovate, when to add on, and in some instance, when to sell and start from new. By adhering to the rules of scale and proportion we create balance and continuity between old and new, ensuring that we add more than square footage, but that we add real value to our client's lives.

Design-Build LLC always keeps the client's priorities above all else. Often in the building process unforeseen issues arrise that have to be dealt with in a timely matter, so having someone on site that is representing the owner can expedite decisions. Too often the "pass the buck," linear method of design leads to "haste makes waste" outcomes and costly corrections having to be made. No one wins in this situation. Our goal at ZDB is to integrate all subcontractors as early as possible so goals are clear and integrated. Choices can be made on the fly by the construction team with confidence because the vision of the project is more deeply understood. ZDB takes advantage of the latest design software to refine and delve into parts of the project every step of the way. What was confusing before can now be thought through sequentially and 3-D modeled, leading to a faster, better project. Of course, we haven't done away with standard, tried-and-true methods but try to utilize a combination of new and old techniques. The added attention to detail that is inherent in the design-build process ultimately leads to quality. There is nothing more beautiful than a thoroughly thought-through design that isn't changed halfway though the process. Everyone can notice what happens when the process is wrong: ugly buildings! With ZDB, you can be assured that you will receive a project that not only works, but is a piece of art.
