First and foremost, G&M has extensive technical knowledge and experience in numerous areas of land development, new construction and remodeling. G&M’s expertise and capabilities include projects within the commercial, industrial, public/municipalities and residential sectors. G&M offers a complete range of professional design services that can assist the project Architect.
Most projects require a combination of design and engineering services such as Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Structural Design and Land Use Planning. Each of these can have a significant impact on the project. Not accounting for one or more of these services can result in wasted time and unnecessary re-design fees.
One of the greatest values that G&M provides to Architects is our expertise in a large range of professional services. Our ability to provide combined services is both convenient and cost effective. G&M also increases design speed and efficiency by providing a “cross trained” staff, which allows our employees to combine Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Structural and Land Use issues in one meeting. The Architect does not need to pay for multiple consultants! This greatly reduces the overall design costs leaving more fees for the Architect.
As an Architect, you are well aware of the complexities and importance of all Accessibility Issues associated with a project. G&M has extensive experience in providing site accessible designs for many types of project. G&M has also developed a comprehensive site accessibility program that compliments an Architect’s services. We can provide assessment and design solutions for all site accessibility problems. Our program incorporates our budgeting and archiving systems to provide a unique and valuable service to Architects.

G&M’s budget reports will assist the Architect in the development of design/construction budgets for various types of site development work. G&M can provide budgets for several design options quickly and efficiently. This allows the Architect to select the most cost-effective design alternative for their Client.

G&M has developed a simple document control system for project documents. The program allows easy access to electronically-formatted documents which greatly simplifies future remodeling and facility management efforts.
The Architect can use our documentation system to provide additional value to their Clients, or G&M can adapt our system to meet the Architect’s document/archiving control needs. Either way, this is a great value added service for both the Architect and the property owner.

Storm water control issues are now a major component of all site designs. G&M combines our extensive technical storm water control expertise with our Budget Reports. This combination of services allows critical site budget information to be developed during the preliminary design phase of a project. This is a service that is normally provided by a Construction Manager or a General Contractor. G&M can provide this service as part of our core responsibilities further reducing costs, increasing the cost effectiveness of the design and minimizing the size of the design team.
Use of Design-Build has greatly accelerated in the United States, making this delivery method one of the most significant trends in design and construction today. Design-Build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the Design-Build team. G&M is experienced in working with Design-Build and can bring our expertise to the project.
