However, Christopher K. Travis also collaborates with his oldest son, Shiloh Travis, a registered green builder in the Austin, Texas area, to form a Design/Build team that serves the Austin environs. The two men have worked with each other for over a decade to produce beautiful homes using an efficient and deeply personal design build process.
For clients who are comfortable with the design/build process, Sentient Architecture LLC, Truehome Design.Build and Shiloh Travis Homes all offer discounted design services for clients who want one team "from vision to move in."
A Better Way to Design and Build
We believe the design/build process is a superior alternative to a competitive bid process. The contractor is involved earlier during the design process and provides the team with an additional set of skills and knowledge - specifically budget management and a better understanding of materials and methods - that can be applied throughout the development of the design.With today's ever-changing construction market, this is invaluable information when controlling project budgets through value engineering
If a client prefers to utilize a traditional competitive bid process, Sentient Architecture also provides upgraded design and drawing/documentation services, which guide the client through bidding,contract negotiation and construction administration stages. This delivery approach requires higher levels of detailed drawings and specification documentation so that contractor bids can be accurately and fairly evaluated.
If you have further questions regarding either of these delivery approaches, please contact Sentient Architecture at 979.249.5961 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
