Process

At Ziese Architecture our primary goal is to provide design solutions that are built on time, on budget, and meet or exceed your vision. In order to do accomplish this end, we utilize a method known as Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).

The American Institute of Architects defines IPD as follows: 

"Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a project delivery approach that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste, and maximize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction...  ...In all cases, integrated projects are uniquely distinguished by highly effective collaboration among the owner, the prime designer, and the prime constructor, commencing at early design and continuing through to project handover."

By involving the contractor early in the design process the architect and owner are able to get real-time cost and scheduling information for each design solution before the project is developed into construction documents. This way the design that is approved by you the client and the building department is the one that actually gets built, not some version that had to be redesigned because it came in over budget or would take too long to construct.

Ziese Architecture is proud of the fact that we have been able to develop long-term relationships with our clients and our team of consultants and contractors. We look forward to doing the same with you.
