Mericle’s Design/Build Services department consists of in-house architects, project managers, and designers with experience in interior space planning and building systems and specifications. Mericle will introduce you to your project manager, who will coordinate your entire project, from the preliminary design phase through permitting, construction, and occupancy. Your project manager will ensure that your project is delivered on schedule as designed and will provide the support needed to accommodate your specific requirements and incorporate changes in your scope of work.
Mericle self-performs most trades including carpentry, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection. In this regard, we are a throw-back to the “master builder” philosophy that was once much more common in the construction industry.
Today, most real estate developers are really “construction coordinators” or “construction managers.” They rely heavily upon outside resources to bring a project to fruition. Unfortunately, these outside firms often have competing demands and play too integral a role in factors that determine whether a project is completed on-time and on-budget. The result is often finger-pointing for project delays and cost overruns.
Mericle has never missed a deadline or encountered cost overruns on any of our projects. That’s because Mericle uses internal resources to manage virtually every critical element of the development and construction process. We have most of these construction resources on staff and under our immediate control. As a result, we are able to direct our own assets toward the on-time and on-budget completion of your project.
