History of our Design/Build Program:

design_build      Since 1948 Charles Licha Construction has always worked closely with Architects to help create a realistic ‘buildable’ structure. In our company’s early days before the concept of design/build existed, founder Charles Licha worked with architects to help design functional and beautiful buildings. One of these architects was Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright always said that he didn’t care whether the contractor was large or small, rich or poor, honest or crooked, it mattered whether or not they could build. Wright only used the most skilled contractors, those who knew the workings of every aspect of a building, Charles Licha as a third generation builder knew his stuff. These skills and knowledge of the industry have been passed along through the company and combined with new skills and information over the years to form the premier design/build system that we have today.

Today:

build team

      Charles Licha Construction has come a long way from the days of building custom mansions for America’s elite. Today we build strictly commercial and industrial facilities. When the term design/build first appeared in the 1990’s Licha was one of the first companies to use this method. We helped evolve the process into what it has become today. Because of our long history of design/build projects, we have become exceedingly efficient at the process, assuring the best cost and management program available to our clients.

      At Licha, we don’t employ Architects or Engineers full time; instead, depending on the requirements of a project, we put together design/build teams that are perfectly suited for our client and the given project. These projects can include industrial complexs, parking structures, office buildings, retail centers, etc. We carefully choose engineers (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, landscape, structural, civil, etc.) and architects that we feel would work best together to accomplish the given task. These architects may be a smaller firm for a smaller project local to the region, or a large firm like F&A Architects who are a Pasadena neighbor and associate of Licha Construction. Licha's Architects like F&A, design large projects, ranging from high rises to the Mall of Emirates in Dubai which includes the famous indoor ski resort.

We Can Design/Build the Perfect Structure for your Needs:

      Because of our vast experience in all types of construction, Licha Construction has the knowledge, ability and resources to design/build any type of facility. We can involve our clients in every step of the design process so they get a truly custom fit, or we can take the lead and simply provide what we believe would be best for you. In either case, we develop complete detailed renderings, and plans throughout the concept process an into the actual design/engineering process. Your feedback is important, we want you like what you see and are willing to take the extra time if needed to make sure you building meets your requirements.

      The images shown here are a few examples of renderings we have provided in the past and they type of product we can provide for your project in the future. The above parking structure meets LEED requirements; the trellis system on the top level holds a complete Photovoltaic (PV) System. We can show engineering details, interior details, etc. Call us today to see how we can help you.
