The Design/Build Approach
What sets our firm apart from our competitors is our partnership with Geis Construction, a full-service
general contractor. In a true design/build environment, our paired services offer our
clients a single source of responsibility and a host of other benefits, including:
• Experience and proven track record of the GLSD/Geis relationship
• Guaranteed project schedule and delivery by both the architect and contractor
• Competitive subcontractor bidding within the design/build project structure
• Ability to fast track construction documents and obtain phased permits for the earliest possible start-on-site date
• Lowest and best cost of construction with no exposure to overruns once the project is underway
Architectural and Interior Design
Originally formed as an internal design staff within the Geis Companies, GLSD Architects is now a full-service
architectural firm. Believing in a practical approach to architecture that involves in-depth collaboration with
clients, we strive to produce buildings that create functional spaces that also showcase a client’s image. We
understand that our design decisions can greatly increase your company’s overall productivity and success by
creating an efficient layout, an appropriate budget, and a sense of pride in your new facility.
We create unique environments, beginning with space planning and spatial formation all the way through to
selection of finishes and furnishings. Our experienced, versatile staff includes architects, engineers,
interior designers and space planners.
The Geis Companies’ engineering capabilities have been an integral part of our service for over 40 years.
With experts in civil, mechanical, electrical and infrastructure engineering, we have resources to manage all
aspects of a project including plumbing, fire protection, HVAC, structural systems engineering, energy consulting,
site utilization, and power and transportation engineering.
