It is a design build delivery method where the architect takes the lead. It is the right way to do Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).
Vanman Architects and Builders has been doing this for 55 years, and I am proud to be a part of this team.
We also partner with high-design firms needing an architect of record, small firms needing the support of a larger firm, and all sorts of architects seeking a builder partner who works well with others, and believes in the value of an architect at the helm.
Learn more at the Vanman Booth #344 at the architect's convention Nov 6-9, 2012 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Or ask me! We want to partner with more architects in 2013.
