Place is at the core of what we do as architects and builders. Our goal is to envision a wonderful structure for each client. Our delivery team includes a board certified architect, a licensed general contractor, and an entire team of supervisors, engineers, and builders. Together, we offer a strong architectural vision and a clear business organization to bring the project to realization.
Exact is the single entity to take full responsibility for design, construction and completion of the project to a high level; delivering the project on time and on budget. Natural benefits include more collaboration and reduced risk with complete information available to any member of the team. When each idea is generated, all team members make decisions with a cooperative approach for greater efficiency and a better project for the same time and money invested.
Exact offers cost certain, proven work across the Midwest. Savings and budget control are achieved through better planning and a guaranteed price to the owners. Each owner can exercise his or her desired degree of control over design, with the added advantage of knowing the cost implications of each decision as they happen. At each milestone owners have the ability to make adjustments and improvements before the project can move into the subsequent phase.
We approach each project with willingness to incorporate the client’s goals and vision with our combined experience. Our experience and track record provide exceptional quality and our delivery milestones provide assurance the project will be correct.
With our design build approach communication is immediate and schedules are reduced by up to 40%. This cuts many owner and lender costs while producing an equal or improved building as compared to the typical design, bid, build approach.
“Plan your work for today and every day, and then work your plan.” -Margaret Thatcher
We propose to design, build, and warranty your building with an exceptional level of service and skill. At your direction we will engage to create a design that satisfies your requirements and build the design to meet budget. We will do so with one point of contact and a clear goal in mind.
