Architectural Experience

ARCHITECTURAL EXPERIENCE

Van Horn Construction works closely with the architectural design team and engineers to understand the owner’s needs and vision for the future.  This design-build partnership arrangement assists in translating the vision into a conceptual design.

Once a list of spaces and requirements to meet the owner’s needs and budget are established, the perfect building site is located.  The ideal placement of the building on the site is determined by such factors as zoning, septic issues, sun direction, trees and views.  VHC wants to be involved throughout the conceptual process from the diagrams to floor plans to exterior elevations.  We offer assistance in all the design details from the smallest to the largest items, including building materials, structure, heating and air, plumbing and electrical.

When the owner is satisfied with the design, we can produce CAD drawings and specifications.  We will help you by submitting a competitive bid and value engineering resulting in as much savings as possible.

Van Horn Construction is committed to quality.  We want to provide a very functional, energy-efficient building that is aesthetically pleasing and which represents the owner’s organization.  Our goal is to stay within budget and within deadline.  Most of our marketing is by word of mouth.  Our customers tell their friends and business associates about their satisfaction with our work.  This is the best marketing strategy available.  And we’re proud of it.  We are fully insured and bonded.  We’ve never had our bond used and don’t plan on it.

Our architectural construction experience is with a wide variety of clientele including projects in offices, churches, schools, libraries and governmental facilities.  The moderate size of our firm allows us to provide an adequate project team while maintaining a hands-on management style.

So no matter what your needs are, we can meet your requirements.
