Design Build

A Collaborative Comprehensive Process

Why Hire an Architect?

Thinking about updating your outdoor space? Consider bringing a landscape architect on board! A landscape architect doesn’t just design gardens; we craft experiences. With our specialized education, extensive training, and professional licensure, landscape architects bring a holistic perspective to projects, blending artistry with expertise in design, ecology, and functionality. Our expertise in site analysis, spatial planning, and construction detailing ensures that projects are not only visually appealing but also functionally resilient to the challenges of changing climates and evolving landscapes. We collaborate closely with our clients to take your outdoor dreams and turn them into a reality that not only looks amazing but also works seamlessly with your environment and lifestyle. Plus, we save you time and headaches by managing the project from concept to completion, making sure your goals are always in the forefront.

Our Unique Story

Waterwise has cultivated landscape design expertise for over two decades.  However, in the past five years, we recognized a gap in our approach. We began in construction, initially relying on basic sketches, then incorporating landscape designers before finally transitioning into landscape architecture.  Recognizing the need for integrated design-build solutions, we now prioritize holistic master planning, placing emphasis on both ecological harmony and client satisfaction.  Fueled by our architect’s & builder’s shared vision and complementary skills, we have embarked on an exciting journey to establish a design-build firm unlike any other. Together, we integrate the artistry of design with the precision of construction and budgeting.  Crafting landscapes that captivate hearts and transform spaces. Our collaboration is not just about building beautiful gardens; it’s about forging a unique bond between creativity, craftsmanship and our clients.

At Waterwise you become part of our team.  Our client-focused approach ensures that your vision remains at the forefront of every decision we make, fostering transparent communication and a collaborative partnership throughout the entire process. With a deep commitment to ecological mindfulness, we prioritize sustainable practices in every aspect of our work, preserving the natural beauty of our surroundings while minimizing our environmental footprint. Furthermore, by integrating our landscape architecture expertise with our skilled build team, we enhance efficiency, remain budget-conscious, and adapt swiftly to unforeseen circumstances, ensuring that your project is completed with care, within budget, and to the highest standards of quality. With our holistic approach, we not only create breathtaking outdoor spaces but also cultivate lasting relationships built on trust, innovation, and a shared commitment to excellence.

When Design Build works well:

  1. **Innovation and Problem-Solving:** The collaborative nature of design-build fosters innovation and effective problem-solving. Designers and builders work closely together to find creative solutions that may not be as feasible in a more segmented process.
  2. **Streamlined Communication:** With a unified team handling both design and construction, communication is important. This helps in avoiding misunderstandings or misinterpretations that may occur when different entities are involved.
  3. **Efficiency and Cohesion:** The design-build process promotes a smoother workflow, as the team works collaboratively from the project’s inception to completion. This can lead to a more efficient timeline and a more cohesive end result.
  4. **Cost Control:** Design-build can help control costs more effectively since the team is intimately familiar with the design intent and can address potential construction issues during the design phase. This can prevent costly changes and delays.
  5. **Adaptability:** The design-build approach allows for greater flexibility during the construction phase. Design adjustments can be made more readily based on real-time construction considerations, ensuring that the final product aligns with the homeowner’s vision.
  6. **Accountability:** With a single entity responsible for the entire process, accountability is clearer. Homeowners have a single point of contact, making it easier to address concerns, make decisions, and oversee the project.
  7. **Time Savings:** The design-build process often results in faster project completion since there is no need for time-consuming bidding processes between separate design and construction entities. Though our top notch plans are 100% bid ready.
