ENTITLEMENTS

To us, a partnership means doing everything we can for our clients. Part of that is pushing your project through the necessary process of entitlements. Of course, we’ll keep you in the loop and answer any questions along the way, and you can depend on our team to take care of securing all the necessary approvals on time.

Our Design-Build Process

SITE SELECTION & ANALYSIS

Every project begins with the selection of an appropriate site. LGE assists with:

  • Evaluating potential sites, zoning and code conditions
  • Analyzing existing infrastructure, wet/dry utilities and any other related factors for all sites
  • Creating preliminary site plans that align with municipality guidelines

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN PROPOSAL

Initial concepts take shape as we define the project vision via:

  • Detailed site plans, floor plans, and interior/exterior building designs
  • A customized client proposal that includes detailed specification guidelines, budget, and a pre-construction agreement
  • Project schedule outlining a full timeline of design, engineering and build

BUDGET & COST CONTROL

With conceptual designs and proposal approval, we ensure adherence to budgets by:

  • Control scope and ensure design intent remains aligned with the established budget
  • Generate construction documents that adhere to scope
  • Evaluate competitive bids from subcontractors to ensure quality and efficiency

PLAN & PERMIT APPROVAL

Coordinating required documents for permit approval prior to construction, we:

  • Manage required documentation with constant communication and transparency
  • Route all architectural, engineering and construction comments to drawings
  • Coordinate the submittal and permit process through all city, municipal and/or design review boards

ADMINISTRATION

During construction, we manage tasks related to on-site activity and ensure:

  • All aspects of a build, including construction team and approvals with proactive communication
  • Weekly schedules, delivering day-to-day objectives that ensure the project is completed on time
  • Weekly calls where we will update you with a snapshot of the next 3 weeks of construction

CLOSE OUT & WARRANTY

After completion of any project, we continue to support clients by:

  • Providing an above market 2-year warranty for your property
  • Offering continued check-ins to ensure complete satisfaction with the project

LGE History and Mission for the Future

David R. Sellers founded LGE Design Build in 1994 with the idea of streamlining the design and construction process with a “single source” controlling the upfront design, specification detailing, entitlement process and all the details of construction. What started with a handful of smaller industrial buildings throughout the Phoenix area has turned into a vertically integrated design and construction company with projects ranging from under $1 million to over $50 million in value.

Since 1994, LGE Design Build has designed and built over 1,000 projects totaling over 20 million square feet. LGE is consistently ranked among the best general contractors in the Southwest and is the only large-scale commercial general contractor in Arizona that has both design and construction under the same roof.

In 2014, to celebrate its 20th anniversary, and dedicated to our founder David R. Sellers, LGE started the David R. Sellers Foundation. The foundation was started to serve causes that make a positive impact on families and communities everywhere.

As we head into the future, we remain true to the values set forth by our company’s founder and continue to grow in both our abilities and our positive impact on the communities we’re in. We aim to work with people who inspire the best in each other and show up every day with integrity, determination and creative thinking. Whether it’s as our future teammate or a client, we hope that you’ll be part of our vision.
