Design Build


Working with Lakeland provides you with a single point for all of your facility construction needs. By coordinating directly with a project design team, we can combine the design and build functions to maximize communication, minimize confusion, and put your entire project on the fast track to completion within your desired budget. It is simply the fastest, most efficient, and most cost-effective way to build your goals.

As a Design-Build general contractor in Painesville, OH and servicing all of Northeast Ohio, Lakeland utilizes the “team concept,” which provides our clients with the most control over quality, cost and scheduling. We know these three points are important, and we will work with you as a team to exceed the expectations of each. Design-Build or single-source responsibility is rapidly becoming an industry standard. The method is a highly successful way to identify and maintain a budget while accomplishing a fast track schedule. This approach takes much of the burden off project owners, allowing them to focus on “running their business” rather than coordinating between the designer and builder. Lakeland is a highly experienced full-service Design-Build contractor. We work closely with our team of architects from the very onset of the project, creating a true “team” effort and enabling a seamless design and construction process.

This “team concept” method of project development brings all of the major participants -contractors, consultants, architect, engineer and customers – to the table at the beginning of the project to establish a united front for the initial concept of the job. This team of decision makers continue to work throughout the design, development and construction phases to ensure that the project is successfully completed to the initial specifications. With our years of experience, we’ve noted that once we have an agreed on starting point and end goal, we can better meet our clients’ overall goals.

From site selection to zoning approval, design development to construction, Lakeland’s Team will be your in-house representative for all project concerns.
