Design and Construction Management
Akridge’s Design and Construction team incorporates thoughtful, innovative designs into our properties to create projects of timeless quality and lasting value. We consistently deliver the most competitive product in the market place. When designing a property, we give careful consideration to the property’s life-cycle and strive to maximize its long-term value. We incorporate operating systems with the latest technologies while also ensuring system quality, reliability, and efficiency. We carefully integrate deep operating experience with the latest in design thinking to create projects with enduring functionality and timeless aesthetics. We are proud that the market recognizes our properties for providing Clients with the highest quality and best performing projects in the Washington, DC region and in North Carolina.
Akridge’s Design and Construction team is renowned for new buildings, renovations, adaptive reuses, and interior fit outs. Our expertise includes every stage of a building’s construction process, including: design team selection; planning and design; budgeting and pre-construction services; scheduling; cost and life-cycle analysis; procurement of permits and approvals; contractor bid, selection, and negotiation; project closeout; and, LEED commissioning. Our staff has proven their expertise at the highest levels of their respective disciplines. By employing an unparalleled team and applying a construction process we have refined for over forty years, we have built a flawless reputation for adhering to project schedules and budgets.
One of the specific tools we use to ensure quality while minimizing risk is through the Akridge Standards document. We have created a proprietary list of best practices and lessons-learned from our experience developing, acquiring, or entitling over 14 million square feet of space. With every project in our portfolio, we assess how we can better design and execute our projects going forward. Upon project completion, we update the Akridge Standards document accordingly to ensure we apply those new standards to future projects. We take great pride in knowing that our disciplined design and construction processes are at the highest level of trust and professionalism in the industry.
Our portfolio is a testament to our design and construction philosophy. Our products have been honored within their market segments and many have become landmarks in and of themselves. We balance current design trends, innovative building systems, and sustainable features with premier materials. As a result, our properties become placemaking buildings that help redefine their neighborhoods. Our properties have helped transform the Washington, DC region and have maximized value for our Clients and the community.
