Design Build

Matlock Associates design/build team is comprised of committed, highly qualified and creative professionals with expertise in new construction, renovation and tenant improvement projects.  We are confident our project team can provide the level of design expertise, budget awareness, and professional collaboration to make your project a successful and well-received venture.  Matlock Associates has coordinated a group of sub-contractor trades and design professionals for several years fostering success and satisfaction and our team is prepared to deliver.

Matlock Associates is a service oriented design/build firm with 40 years of business experience.  We are licensed in the state of California as an architect and as a general contractor.  We provide these services ‘in-house’ which means that we do not hire either of these services as ‘outside consultant’ or via a separate contract.  We provide one-source service with one-source responsibility; there is no third party coordination or contractual agreement as with the traditional owner-architect and owner-contractor arrangement.

Design/build with Matlock Associates is ‘architect directed’ versus ‘contractor led’ as with most design/build companies.  This translates to design and aesthetics being the project emphasis supported by construction means, methods and cost.  This differs from ‘contractor led’ design build where construction means, methods and cost control the design aesthetic produced by the design team employed by the contractor.  We believe that this difference in project approach provides a better end product for our clients; fulfilling their aspirations and vision within budget and on schedule.

Key advantages to design/build:

"Matlock has a unique ability to meet the demanding needs of all our constituencies and come up with great looking spaces while taking into consideration the limited budget of our church."
