DESIGN    BUILD    MANAGE

"The level of organization within their projects is impressive. I was at ease throughout the course of construction and was always informed of what was happening - and the project was completed in exactly the time frame originally agreed." - West Hollywood Client

Building is a collaborative process

The key to ensuring a smooth construction experience is to start with a collaborative structure.


One of the oldest types of construction, Design-Build is a process where a single firm handles all aspects of construction. The Design-Build system is beneficial for an owner as it can significantly reduce project risk for the owner and decrease the overall timeline of the project due the ability to overlap the design and construction phases. Unlike the traditional process of Design-Bid-Build, the Design-Build approach allows design and construction to work in concert with each other from the beginning thus eliminating the risk of re-design which can be costly to both the schedule and budget.

Scala provides Design-Build Services in collaboration with its architectural and engineering partners and is experienced in playing an active role in guiding key design decisions which may be influenced by building codes, regulations, engineering or other factors . Since the design, permit and construction schedules overlap, the project is evaluated by several key contributing parties simultaneously and problems that would otherwise arise during construction can be corrected before the project starts. As a result, projects can be built and delivered much faster and on budget since the total project cost can be projected accurately up-front.
