CASCO strives to achieve leadership in the
Architectural/Engineering industry as a national account, relationship oriented
firm, providing highly responsive cost effective services of superior quality to
each client on every project assignment. This result is achieved by
utilizing the "learning curve" efficiencies associated with repetition and a
strong account management, prototype management, project management delivery
Our professional staff is currently licensed in
every state except Alaska, as well as some U.S. Territories. We offer a broad spectrum of 'in-house'
services supporting development programs including Architectural Design, Civil, Structural, Mechanical and
Electrical Engineering, as well as Landscape Design, Feasibility Analysis,
Concept Costing, Construction Management, and Construction Administration. With
such capabilities we are able to provide a rapid, integrated, cost effective,
and energy efficient building while maintaining a personal level of service to

Delivering on Experience
Site Development Coordination
Site Development Coordination begins when the
client has identified a potential site and can continue through the grand
opening date. During the Site Development coordination process, the
CASCO site development coordinator (SDC) investigates and identifies all
aspects of the project that could potentially affect the operations,
construction costs and opening schedule. These factors can be
generally categorized as on-site constraints, off-site requirements,
governmental/jurisdictional controls and lease/developer conditions.
The SDC coordinates jurisdictional approvals,
site survey, geotechnical investigation, civil design and building
construction documents. CASCO analyzes these conditions and assist in
determining a realistic schedule for building construction start, which in
turn establishes the client's grand opening date.

sub-optimized at the expense of others.
CASCO's ever-increasing expertise with
Building Information Modeling (BIM), an interactive, three-dimensional,
computer-generated construction document system, enables our team to present
the client with a customized set of documents that can automatically
inventory stock, detect conflicts and project "real-time" full color, 3-D
presentation and design review. The end result is a "virtual
lab" of the facility, where all elements of the facilities' process can be
configured, reviewed, analyzed and implemented... without one piece of merchandise or
one fixture actually being moved. For CASCO and our clients, the future is now and the
efficiencies it offers is but a step away.
