Creating Healthy Buildings: The Design Build Advantage

We adhere to the fundamental belief that a unified team produces the best results. This concept of team synergy is pervasive in nature: a flock of geese, a colony of bees and even the cells in our own body reveal how a group can maximize individual abilities by working together toward a greater outcome than singular efforts could possibly produce.

Over the years we have tackled many complex and unconventional building projects. Along the way, we have learned it's critical to work as a cohesive design build team to ensure we deliver consistency and excellence on all projects. Our team is comprised of individual experts of architects, project managers, superintendents, carpenters and more, who work dynamically in a unified effort to engage clients in creating healthy and inspiring buildings. Their dreams, goals, values and budget are the most important objectives in any healthy building project. We employ our proven Unified Design Build Process to weave all the objectives together, aligning ourselves every step of the way to ensure fast and efficient delivery—even for the most complex and unconventional projects.

During each step of our Unified Design Build Process, the design build team aligns all project objectives and criteria to ensure we achieve a project’s design intent, budget goals, sustainability measures, and the craftsmanship for which Green Hammer is known. We track the budget closely and communicate the return on investment for all construction measures that result in healthier, more durable buildings.

A Dynamic and Cohesive Whole

As a multidisciplinary design build company creating healthy buildings in Portland Oregon, Green Hammer’s Unified Design Build Process has proven to be extremely effective at allowing Green Hammer to achieve third-party-verified green building certifications such as Passive House, Net Zero Energy and the Living Building Challenge. When appropriate, we collaborate with outside experts such as engineers and landscape architects to achieve our clients’ goals.

Executed with Exacting Detail

Our talented carpenters and construction managers have a deep passion for excellence, precision and craft. A fundamental value of exceeding expectations drives every measurement, cut and installation. Members of our construction team are excellent craftsmen and women who uphold Green Hammer’s high standards. Because we operate as a unified design build team, all design plans are executed with exacting detail.

On Time. On Budget.

Green Hammer’s unified design build team has years of experience keeping projects on schedule and on budget. All team members communicate early in the design development phase, which helps ensure design elements are vetted by the construction team and can be installed efficiently and effectively. From project inception through final completion, our expert construction managers ensure that precision of craft and effective detailing are delivered with the intended design.
