CHA is founded on collaboration – within our firm, with our clients, and with contractors we work closely with. Design-build formalizes the collaborative delivery approach under a single contact between an owner and the builder, recognizing our expertise and innovation as the framework that strengthens our commitment to deliver creative solutions. The foundation of our approach imparts strength and empowerment at every level, something we have always prioritized. We push ourselves to think and work differently to deliver for our clients – that’s finding a better way.
