Design

McKENZIE's in-house architecture team consists of architects and designers. The Design team is the first stop for a design-build project.

We integrate cost and feasibility analysis into the process as we explore designs. Our Construction team speaks design, and our Design team speaks construction.


Design-Build Projects

The McKENZIE design-build process is a client-led, integrated project development and delivery process. Our staff provide insight and guidance every step of the way. At the start, we work with our client's to capture their vision for aesthetics. From there, we help package it into a unique and successful development opportunity.

In the initial project phases, our Design team iterates on design and schematic plans. The client explores pricing and value engineering options throughout finalizing the project's design. Through evolving revisions, we help the client to visualize their project's developing look.

The passing between the final design phase to construction administration is seamless. Our construction team works with our architects and designers in all planning phases. Working together, both teams resolve any field issues that may emerge while sticking close to project design and budget.

Build

McKENZIE Construction is a professional and proven full service general construction management contractor. We specialize in luxury residential and commercial projects in the surrounding Miami area.

We are passionate about our residential and commercial projects, taking on a versatile mix of the two. Our veteran construction team has seen success with both design-build projects and traditional architect-led design-bid-build projects.

The McKenzie Construction team consists of Project Managers, Superintendents, and a team of skilled tradesmen who execute quality control on all finished product. We manage our subcontractors to deliver our clients' sustainable and high performance designs through an efficient construction process. Our skilled tradesmen team serves as a tactical finishing and punch-out team, filling the scope voids that are often created during any construction project.

Our skills show in the work involved in developing a homeowner's dream house, a new business owner's start-up concept, or a developer's larger core and shell owner-occupied or tenant-occupied project. Our passion lies in managing the construction process with high-quality communications.

Craft

The McKenzie Craft workshop is a large 20,000 SF fabrication space that has all the tools and spaces that we need to be able to execute almost any wood, metal or concrete craft project and finish it in-house.

We apply our knowledge of materials and their sustainable and embodied energy characteristics to help create stunning & lasting projects for our clients that are environmentally friendly.

We look forward to any challenge that comes our way-- creating residential projects such as extra large built-in bookshelves or remodeling a kitchen, engineering a one-of-a-kind metal and wood staircase, mastering the science involved with curing a concrete bar for a restaurant client, or managing the budget needed to execute a series of common area pieces for a new high-rise residential community.
