This is an overview of how Alchemy can deliver design using industry partners: factories, panel manufacturers, general contractors, and craftsmen + build teams. For more detailed information download Alchemy’s Brochure.
Alchemy is a full-service architecture firm that works with independent factories and contractors around the continental United States to build our designs using various construction methods: prefab modular, prefab panels (a kit of parts), or on-site-building (stick-building). Alchemy works alongside the Owner throughout the design and build process. We do not sell ‘plans’—we see all of our designs through to completion.
Prefabricated modular builds executed by independent factory partners are delivered to the building site essentially complete. Alchemy utilizes factories around the United States who are open to building contemporary custom homes alongside more traditional structures. Our fifteen+ years of experience building relationships within this industry makes a difference.

Panelized construction of walls or the roof are delivered to the site as a ‘kit of parts’ and assembled by the on-site building team. Infrastructure is added, interiors and exterior.

When high quality builders are available, and conditions are favorable, a typical on-site construction process is used.
No matter the method, Alchemy stays involved in the building process with on-site walk-throughs and status updates. A final discussion with the GC and Owner leads to the wrap- up design invoice.
Additional Services performed by Alchemy may include custom lighting and furniture fabrication, outbuilding design, and coordinating others including landscape architects, engineers, and specialty contractors. Additional Services are approved by the Owner in advance, and are billed on an hourly basis.
