Design/Build Program

How the Program Started

Licha Construction Inc. has always worked closely with architects in creating a realistic, buildable structure. However, this was before the concept of design/build existed in our company.

In our company’s early days, our founder Charles Licha worked with architects to help design functional and beautiful buildings. One of them was Frank Lloyd Wright, who always said that he did not care whether the contractor was large or small, rich or poor, honest or crooked. Wright believed that what matters is if they could build or not.

Wright worked with the most skilled contractors, those who knew the workings of every aspect of a building, such as third-generation builder Charles Licha. Charles’ broad knowledge of the industry has been passed along through the company. Over the years, these skills were combined with new information, which formed the premier design/build system our company has today.

Our Design/Build Program Today

Licha Construction Inc. has come a long way from the days of building custom mansions for America’s elite. Today, we construct strictly commercial and industrial facilities.

When the term design/build first appeared in the 1990s, Licha Construction Inc. 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 exceptionally efficient at the process, assuring superior cost and management programs available to our clients.

Creating Our Design/Build Team

At Licha, we do not employ architects or engineers full time. Depending on the requirements of a project, we put together design/build teams that are perfectly suited for each client as well as the given project. These projects can include industrial complexes, parking structures, office buildings, and retail centers.

We carefully choose every mechanical, electrical, plumbing, landscape, structural, and civil engineers and architects who could finish the project efficiently. The architects may be from a small firm or a large firm such as our associate in Pasadena, F+A Architects. Our architects have designed large high-rise projects such as the Mall of Emirates in Dubai, which is famous for its indoor ski resort.

Comprehensive Design/Build Program

Because of our vast experience in all types of construction, Licha Construction Inc. can design/build any facility. Our clients can be involved in every step of the design process, so they get a truly custom fit. We can also take the lead and provide what we believe is best for your project. In either case, we develop complete detailed renderings and plans from the concept process to the actual design/engineering process.
