Technology Driven Design & Construction.
We are Architects & Constructors with a business model driven by technological innovation and curious minds. Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design in Construction (VDC) are key components that not only influence how our integrated team operates with the project owner, but are also embedded in every one of our workflows. Our high-performance team is comprised of Architects, Constructors, Engineers, Software & Application Analysts, Finance Professionals, and Tech-Savvy Marketers. Everyone here plays a critical role in the success of our comprehensive offering, collaborating daily both in the field and in the office to streamline every move that we make.
How We Work
Over our sixty plus year history, we learned the hard way that traditional project delivery methods seldom work. We are industry disrupters who offer a truly integrated, single-source approach to design & construction the way Design/Build was originally intended. Our processes borrow from an Integrated Project Delivery method and are designed to protect the owner from risk at all costs. The days of finger pointing and blame shifting inherent between Architect, Engineer, and Builder are long gone because on Wesex projects, everyone is on one team. If the owner is having an issue, they know exactly where to turn for results, and Wesex welcomes this increased accountability – it motivates us to find increasingly effective and efficient ways to execute our work.
Recent Press & Awards
For us, the reward at the end of a job is a happy client and a successful project, but sometimes we are fortunate enough to receive additional accolades and mentions in newspapers, magazines, and publications. We are proud of the recognition we’ve received for our work, including our 2014 DBIA National Award of Excellence because it speaks to our continual pursuit of excellence.
Where We Build
While the bulk of our work takes place in the Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia regions, we are ready and willing to go wherever needed. Our capabilities, resources and strong desire to satisfy clients are transferrable to any geographic area. If you have a project you’d like to discuss with us, we’re all ears!
Who We Are
The roots of our current delivery approach stretch back to 1950, when Emil Koledin founded what was then known as the E. Koledin Company with a vision of providing services more in line with the holistic approach of an old world Master Builder. Melanie and Greg, our chiefs of design and construction, respectively, carry on this view of how the built environment should be developed, often blurring the lines between their respective roles as they both strive to engender the traits of a modern Master Builder – able to straddle the intricacies of design aesthetic, constructability, quality, functionality, time efficiency, and budget to tie them into the best possible outcome for each client.
Their individual unique and varied interests allow us to continuously expand our offerings & areas of expertise. As such, projects we’ve successfully undertaken include everything from small commercial and office spaces to large-scale warehouse/distribution projects, manufacturing facilities, and industrial masterplans.
With over ten million square feet of building space placed into service under our watch, the secret sauce to our success is simple…it’s our people. Our team of professionals are industry experts who continually strive for excellence. Whether a design/build or traditional hard bid project, Wesex thoughtfully guides each project through extensive conceptual design & feasibility, pre-construction planning, detailed programming and design, comprehensive budget analysis, and fast-tracked, cost efficient, quality construction.
Our referrals and repeat clients are a primary source of our business, speaking to our track record of delivering quality work on time and often exceeding expectations. As our industry continues to grow and change, we continue to strive to develop more diverse and cutting edge skill sets to impress our clients and maintain our reputation for being on the cutting edge.
