The Residential Design-Build Business Model with David Pollard

Enoch SearsDec 12, 2020

Architect Dave Pollard started LivCo in 2012 to provide quality design to suburban homeowners, but with some twists to the traditional architectural services model.

Following on the heels of his graduate thesis work stating “to make architecture more accessible, it’s time we stop trying to re-design the building systems, and architects lead the charge in re-thinking the design systems.” This evolved into his design-build model which allows simplified deliverables and a fully integrated and accountable team to deliver “the project”.

LivCo has won numerous awards including fourteen Chicago Remodeling Excellence Awards, four regional remodeling excellence awards, Home of the Year Award, Contractor of the Year Award, five consecutive years Houzz Best in Service, Remodeling Big50, and in 2018, Dave was on ProRemodelers 40 under 40 list.

In today's episode, Dave takes us behind the scene of his design-build business model.
