Teamwork overcomes challenges to champion our design process.
A Reputation for Design Excellence and Innovation
Along with a reputation for managerial and technical excellence, WDG has a strong design background and brings design sensitivity to every collaborative project. Our professionals work closely with designers to translate bold and visionary statements into complete BIM models and construction documents with the highest fidelity. WDG remains a steadfast advocate for good design for the duration of the project, and works to guarantee that the design architect’s voice is clearly communicated to the client and consultants. WDG sees the project delivery as a comprehensive process that begins with assisting in assembling a team of well-qualified consultants, interfacing with local stakeholders, and managing complex approvals and regulatory processes.
Sustainability is Embedded Throughout Our Practice
WDG assembles and orchestrates project teams that excel in sustainable design. We leverage long-term relationships with design experts including our teams of MEP and civil engineers, landscape architects, sustainability and building enclosure consultants. We work directly with manufacturers, local and regional material installers, and technical representatives to ensure our designs achieve their desired results.
In addition to the LEED rating system, WDG regularly utilizes other rating systems such as Green Globes, WELL, ICC 700, and the Green Construction Code. Consequently, we have developed a streamlined and effective design approach that integrates sustainable principles in an internal quality assurance process. WDG is also an active participant in the AIA 2030 Commitment.
Leadership and Broad Expertise in the Design/Build Process
WDG’s understanding of the design-build process elevates each project. Our experience helps streamline contract and project management, improve accountability, and strengthen communication. Because we work in tandem with the contractor, the contractor’s changes can be incorporated into the design phase, eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming revisions during construction. This benefit allows the team to estimate project costs early in the project development process, thus contributing to more effective budget planning.
