What is the Design-Build Process?
Design-Build provides owners with a single point of contact for the design and construction phases of a project. One entity holds single-source responsibility and contractual risk management for every aspect of a build — from estimation, assessments and pre-construction to architecture, schematics, engineering, subcontracting, construction and post-construction.
This entity, the Design-Builder / Stanley & Wencl, manages all contracts with companies, such as subcontractors, equipment vendors and materials providers.
You as the Owner manage only one contract with a single point of responsibility.
The designer and contractor are on the same team, providing unified recommendations, not excuses.
Control of Your Project
Stanley & Wencl is responsible for the communication, coordination, contracts & administrative tasks.

“I've been doing business with Dan and Wendy for many years. They are extremely professional and great to work with."

“For many years, as an Architect, I have had the opportunity to work with the Stanley & Wencl, LLC team. Great group of people to work with on your next construction project."
“I've been working with Jay Feider at Stanley & Wencl for a good 20 years. As an architect, one thing that makes my job a lot easier is Jay's education - he graduated from the Dunwoody Institute - architecture program. He has a good understanding of "design" and many times will meet with the client, then give me a floor plan that he has prepared, that solves all of the client's issues. Jay has a good group of subcontractors that he can rely upon as he puts a bid together. My church was planning for a new addition. I brought Jay in as one of the three proposed general contractors. He was the only one of the three to give us a complete bid and on time! By the way, Wendy Literski is the best secretary/office manager ever!"
“Dan has completed many building projects over the last 15 years. Dan is professional, his responsiveness & verifying quality is top notch."
“I can personally attest to the professionalism and construction expertise of the Stanley & Wencl team. Despite a tight deadline, they finished our project on time and within the budget. There were no schedule delays because of equipment or staffing issues."
Martel Construction, Inc.
"My experience with the Stanley & Wencl team spans nearly a decade. During this time I have had nothing but good experiences with Dan Stanley and his associates. The portfolio of work includes new construction, renovation as well as ongoing maintenance and facilities projects.

“From project onset, the Stanley & Wencl team worked hard to communicate in an efficient and effective manner. They handled the coordination with the architect, interior designer as well as other subcontractors in a seamless manner. In fact, their management efforts were so proficient, I never felt bothered in the design or construction process, which allowed me to continue to do my job!"

“Our management team interviewed several reputable building firms, and all agreed our needs would be best met selecting Stanley & Wencl as our general contractor. We made the right decision. I would recommend your company to any commercial client considering a new construction or reconstruction project in the future."
