Twenty-five years ago the pace of business and construction was accelerating rapidly. Design and construction delivery, however, were not keeping pace. Often, more time was expended bringing projects to bid than was required to construct them. Henkel Construction Company determined that increased project complexity and faster delivery would strain quality and impact costs unless something changed to streamline the process.
Henkel's solution was to embrace a process little used at the time called Design-Build. We recognized the value of Design-Build long before it became popular. Design-Build delivered all design and construction services in one package, from one team, with single point responsibility. Accord Architecture Company was established in 1986 to deliver the design component on all Henkel Design-Build projects.
Accord has built an excellent architectural design and planning reputation with an ever-growing list of design-build clients. The type, size, and complexity of Accord projects has grown consistently. Today’s Accord team designs many local and regional hospitals and enjoys a growing list of exciting commercial, industrial, retail, hospitality, and financial clients. Teaming with Henkel, Accord Architecture’s creative designs continually deliver the quality clients desire, in less time, and at significantly lower cost than traditional bid methods.
