  2. 2. Firm Overview dbRight LLC SBLM ArchitectsAbout dbRightdbRight was founded by the Principals of SBLM Architects to offer a wider range of services to ourclients, including competitive design-build project delivery options. The design-build process offersa lower-risk alternative to the traditional design-bid-build delivery method and assures a fixed costand expedited project-delivery schedule as design and construction phases are overlapped. Thesignificant advantages of this method are epitomized by the following: architects are professionallyresponsible for a facility during its entire life span, versus an industry standard of one year forcontractors; and with architects at the helm, the integrity of a building’s design is supported by thearchitect’s passion for an elegant solution.StaffThe firm is comprised of 13 Project Managers and Site Superintendents. In addition, SBLM iscomprised of 90 architects, technicians, CAD specialists, administrative and support personnel whoutilize the most current technology in designing and drafting.Firm Capabilities•• Program Management•• Program Analysis and Test Fits•• Preliminary Construction Cost Analysis•• Zoning and Building Code Review and Analysis•• Local Community Board Representation•• Architecture and Engineering through SBLM Architects•• Agency Filing and Permitting•• Building Construction and Construction Management•• Post-Construction DocumentsdbRight Qualifications | Firm Overview
  3. 3. Firm Overview dbRight LLC SBLM Architects Retail Design Through our affiliation with SBLM Architects, dbRight is able to offer complete design services supported by an integrated architectural and contractor approach. SBLM’s designers work with you to develop your brand language into a three-dimensional environment. At the same time, dbRight’s builders inform the design process by bringing to light potential site challenges, hidden conditions, and local approvals processes. Through integrating the contractor perspective early in the design process, dbRight is able to avoid potential project delays and change orders which translates into cost savings and speed-to-market delivery. Cost Estimating & Budgeting Each project begins with a well-researched and reliable cost estimate. This estimate is closely monitored and evaluated by our in-house cost estimator throughout the project process. This eliminates any potential for surprises and cost overruns in the final budget. Another cost saving measure is dbRight’s ability to value-engineer at every stage of the design process prior to construction. Construction Services dbRight is a licensed and insured General Contractor (GC) and Construction Manager (CM) with construction managers and superintendents on staff. dbRight offers a variety of choices for contracting to best suit the specific project needs. These include GC or CM with a guaranteed maximum price, CM with a cost-plus-percentage fee, or CM with a cost-plus-fixed fee. The “cost plus” options are especially appealing to clients who need to establish and record multiple bids for each work trade. All bids are open and reviewed with the client prior to final sub-contractor selection. dbRight maintains a solid relationship with a network of qualified sub-contractors in various states. Each job is supervised by both a Project Manager and an on-site Superintendent. Post–Construction Services dbRight provides a thorough close-out package, including operating manuals, as-built drawings, and lien waivers from sub-contractors upon final payment. Our staff conducts a punch list for each trade as well as an overall list for substantial completion. The design-build structure allows us immediate access to on-staff licensed design professionals to handle any inspection concerns or local agency issues. dbRight has the capability to remove, relocate, or install new merchandise fixtures, displays, signage, and graphics if required. As an optional service, dbRight provides post-occupancy visits. dbRight Qualifications | Firm Overview
