Why Design / Build?
Design / Build is the coming together of creative architects and professional builders as an integrated team. We design our projects, and then we build them! Design / Build (the designer is also the builder) is the oldest, most natural, and most efficient construction process. At Epic Design we feel that this method, used to create many of the majestic cathedrals and manors of Europe, is the best approach. We don’t design and disappear or blindly follow a supplied blueprint. A successful project cannot be measured by design alone, or solely by the quality or efficiency of the construction, but rather by how these elements come together to achieve a vision. A successful project merges creative design solutions, value engineering (respecting the client’s budget), masterful construction, on-time schedule, and a final product that exceeds customer expectations. Epic Design accomplishes this with a proven team of architects, builders, and craftsmen all working under one roof. This is Design / Build—one team with one goal — complete and total customer satisfaction. Epic Design is a leading Sacramento Ca based firm with the experience and vision to execute on any plan.
