In 1975, David C. Nutting, a registered architect, became the first employee of a small Syracuse, NY construction company. His energy and direction helped reshape the company and the firm soon became VIP Structures. David’s vision was to serve our clients more effectively by combining the best elements of design and construction: integrated design-build.
VIP’s team of over one hundred architectural, engineering, construction and development professionals bring together multiple skills that provide the value engineering, ingenuity and the sharing of a common goal– the successful completion of our client’s project. Our team members work collaboratively to define all aspects of a project, mitigate potential risk and develop innovative solutions. The design-build approach not only enables fast-track scheduling but results in lower project costs.
Our people are our greatest asset, bringing to each project a tremendous amount of experience, knowledge and understanding of space utilization, life cycle cost and product durability. Our teams’ experience crosses multiple industry sectors, from industrial and commercial, to downtown restoration and redevelopment projects for not-for-profit agencies and educational institutions.
We perform the majority of all work with our own crews. Concrete form work, foundation work, concrete slabs and finishes, steel erection, roofing, insulation, siding systems and interior finishes are all accomplished by VIP personnel. This multi-functional staffing allows us to schedule as we see fit, and avoids having another company’s workload determine the timeline of our client’s project.
VIP’s design-build expertise sets us apart. We have become the leading provider of integrated design-build services in our region, offering solutions for companies across the U.S. With our integrated design-build approach, we combine the best of architectural design, engineering, construction and development to deliver quality and value for our clients.
Four disciplines, one point of contact.
