Ivanhoe Townhouses


Commencing construction shortly, this project is a collaboration between MODO Architects and Seventy7 Projects under the Design & Construct delivery model.

The Design & Construct Model

The Design & Construct model is tailored for clients with specific budgets and aims to mitigate the risk of over-designing or choosing the wrong builder for the project. The integrated approach provides a cohesive solution to architecture, interior design, landscape design, cost planning, permit acquisition and construction, delivered by a quality architect and experienced builder conscious of budget limits without compromising quality. 

At strategic milestones during the design phase, Seventy7 Projects provides detailed cost plans of the developing design as well as cost comparisons of detailed finishes being proposed to ensure the project remains within budget. This will include fixed rates on design and construction fees upfront.
