As a project is developed, it’s important to consider future growth and expansion. Development of early phases should facilitate and flow into later phases rather than impede future development.
SLI’s architecture and Design/Build process begins with preliminary planning. In this phase, we work with you to develop preliminary plans and cost estimates.
Architecture & Interior Design
During the Design Development Phase of the project, the architects, interior designers and consulting engineers, along with the suppliers, prepare drawings, details and specifications that describe the intent of the project.
As a commercial Design/Build firm, SLI purchases products and materials on a daily basis and is in tune with cost trends and product technologies. Accordingly, we design construction assemblies to achieve your desired objectives while meeting your budget.
Site Location & Feasibility Studies
SLI has extensive experience in identifying potential sites for development and studying the cost and feasibility of the associated development.
After the preliminary plans and scope of work are completed, a cost estimate is prepared. SLI maintains a proprietary computerized data base for estimating. The data base is comprised of cost assemblies based on actual cost data and is continually updated to reflect cost trends for specific items.
Construction Contracting & Management
Our commercial Design/Build firm provides full-service construction, contracting and management services that assume responsibility, with no excuses, for delivering a cost effective, quality project, on time and within budget.
Each SLI commercial Design/Build project has a construction manager, a construction superintendent, a project architect, an interior designer, as well as FF&E and construction purchasing agents assigned to it who all play an active role in the supervision of your project.
Furniture & Fixture Procurement
The Products and Resource Division of SLI Group was established as a purchasing and customer service group to service your needs.
On some commercial Design/Build projects, there are consultants and vendors which directly contract with the owner to provide goods or services such as computers, security and other specialized equipment. SLI incorporates these parties into the team.
