Located in Miami, FL, DAW is a Design + Build Studio, created in June 2002 by José Leonardo Parra and Blanca Daw with more than 30 years of professional activities in the design + build industry after earning their bachelor’s degree in architecture at Universidad del Zulia in their hometown Maracaibo, Venezuela. After graduate in 1990, they opened their own Design + Build Studio, Arquimarmol, where they gained knowledge and experience designing and building luxury custom homes, malls, restaurants and corporate offices
In 2001, Jose & Blanca decided to move to the South Florida area and open their own Design + Build Studio Daw Builders, where he obtained a General Contractor License from the Florida Department of Business Regulation. Since then, DAW has created exceptional modern design and construction for high-end residential and commercial projects throughout the Southeast Florida, with a variety of projects ranging from luxury custom homes, corporate offices, malls and sports facilities
At DAW we offer design-build projects, through a model where one entity (the design-build team) works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design-build services. One entity, one contract, and one unified workflow from initial concept to completion.
In simpler terms, the design + build construction delivery method replaces the traditional method of awarding separate contracts for design and construction. The contractor, designers, subcontractors, and owner work as one team to build a project that meets or exceeds the owner’s expectations. Team members focus together on communication, collaboration, and problem solving.
Through unmatched customer relationships and craftsmanship, DAW will continue to position itself as the design-build company of choice. We provide unique design, flawless construction execution and superior service, as well as continuing to innovate and educate ourselves to provide our clients with the best constructions according to their individual needs. We will keep growing in the market while creating personalized living spaces that improve the lifestyle of our customers.
