Conceptual Building Design

From Sketch to Schematic

From Sketch to Schematic

Conceptual Building Design is a process that starts with an initial idea and propels a project forward. We often begin with a starting point as simple as a "napkin sketch" to initiate a dialog, which then pushes the rough concept toward a schematic layout.

At KDW, we prefer Live-Design programming with our clients in the room. This allows us to design from the inside-out using what we call Lego-Blocks to represent the various departments, components and future growth. This arrangement helps us to solidify the size of the structure and study the process flows. It's important to remember that we handle the Conceptual Building Design completely in-house, so that it remains an integrated part of your larger project.

In 2013 WIKA Process Solutions LP and GAYESCO INTERNATIONAL LCC started working with the KDW team to design & build our brand new manufacturing facility on a 13 acre lot in the Pasadena ship channel area. From start (concept & initial renderings) to finish (January 2015 moving in) the KDW team supported us in every step of the way.

When Goya realized the need for a large facility capable of heavy production, we knew KDW would be our designs/builder and Houston would be our home. This is our second project in 6 years with KDW and the Goya team considers the KDW team part of our extended family."

We could not have picked a better partner, to help us in establishing a productive plant in SW Houston. KDW met with us several times, to develop an understanding of our needs. Once understood, they incorporated our proven program with their local knowledge of Municipality, available Materials, Sub Contractors, and other Project Management Guidance.

Working with KDW to build our state of the art High Bay/Heavy Lift Fabrication Shop was nothing short of pleasurable and professional.  Their knowledge of construction techniques is amazing and every sub-contractor that was used did impeccable work. We could not have chosen a more competent General Contractor on our million dollar expansion project.

Throughout the different phases of construction, one thing impressed us the most was your focus in honoring your commitments. Secondly, The art of making a very complex project simple is a concept you have gracefully mastered.  We not only made the right choice with KDW we found a new partner.
