The Design/Build Approach
Arch Form is a design/build firm
managed and directed by Farley Lozowick, a licensed architect and general contractor. Farley has designed and built over three million square feet of commercial and residential space.
Using the design/build approach to commercial/residential construction saves time, money and avoids the problems often encountered when building a home using a separate contractor, architect and interior designer. The design/build approach provides a single source of responsibility & accountability and a direct line of communication.
As your Architect and Builder, Farley oversees your
entire construction process, which gives you the added assurance that the project is being constructed as the design intended. It allows for coordinating your budget with the materials and specifications so there are no unwelcome and expensive surprises to lessen the joy of watching your dream unfold.
With our extensive knowledge of construction, and on-site experience, we are able to design a home that is not only feasibly economically, but also to harmonize with the surrounding landscape and the desires of you, the homeowner.
Throughout the entire construction phase, the project is overseen by your on-site architect and project manager, which gives the added assurance that the project is being constructed as the design intended.
There are several ways in which we like to cater to our clients' desires. One example of this is how we can contract with the homeowner. We can work either in a lump sum manner (the security of having a maximum price), or on a cost plus basis.
A cost plus scenario is for those who are very serious about obtaining the absolute best possible price by securing up to three bids per trade, then making a joint decision on each subcontractor based on their references, qualifications, insurance and performance. This enables the homeowner to get the most for their dollar.
We Would Be Delighted To Design And Build A Home For You!
