Design Studio C, Ltd. has over 13 years of experience in building for our clients. By keeping the architect involved throughout construction, we can be more responsive to any owner requests or unforeseen conditions in the field. We started with Construction Management Services back in 1999 for the Kids Dentist building in Grayslake. We have teamed with clients to develop and build two infill houses, as well as remodeling our own offices in three different locations, which helps our perspective from the owner, developer, and contractor points of view. We have provided Construction Management services to multiple clients, and most recently have begun providing Design/Build services to our clients. By acting as both Architect and General Contractor, we provide a single source of contact throughout your project from inception to completion.
