Connecticut Spring & Stamping (CSS) has been a leader in the manufacturing industry since 1939. Specializing in precision springs, stampings, and assemblies, CSS serves various industries, including aerospace, medical, and automotive. The company's commitment to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction has established it as a trusted name in the manufacturing sector. As CSS grew, it recognized the need to expand and upgrade its facilities as a way to serve its clients better and accommodate future growth.

A Partnership for Progress: Claris Design•Build and CSS

To achieve their vision of an enhanced facility, CSS turned to Claris Design•Build, a company renowned for its expertise in designing and constructing state-of-the-art commercial and industrial buildings. The collaboration between CSS and Claris was built on a foundation of mutual respect, clear communication, and a shared commitment to excellence.

Meeting Challenges Head-On

Building a new facility while maintaining ongoing operations presented unique challenges. CSS needed a partner who could be flexible and responsive to their needs. Steve Dicke, President of CSS, highlights Claris’s exceptional ability to adapt and deliver:

“They were very flexible on some of our needs that we had to work around to keep our facility running because we were attaching it to the existing building and had phase 1 and phase 2. They worked with us to expedite that process to phase 2, and we finished it ahead of schedule and under budget.”

Transparent Communication and Efficient Execution

Transparency and efficiency were key elements that defined the collaboration. Claris kept CSS informed at every step, ensuring there were no surprises and that all stakeholders were on the same page. As Steve Dicke states:

“It was a transparent process, and they’re always looking to see if there’s anything else that we needed. They’d fill us in on where it stood and what the next challenge will be.”

“The follow-up work was always right on. I mean, we heard back from them immediately on most things. They were always transparent about inspections and communication with their subcontractors, the town for approval, and so forth.”

Achieving Success Together

Thanks to Claris’ dedication and efficiency, CSS’s new facility was completed on schedule and under budget. This remarkable achievement is a testament to both teams' collaborative spirit and hard work. Steve Dicke summarized the experience in one word: “Efficient.”

In 1987, Claris Design•Build founder, Phil Clark, obtained an Architectural Engineering degree from Penn State. After graduation, he worked for various companies including Whiting-Turner Contracting Company and Shankel Construction. “I always had the desire to own my own construction business, and when the construction company I was working for downsized, it provided me the opportunity and incentive to get started.” Phil founded Claris Design•Build in 1991 with the belief that the traditional design/bid/build process was adversarial and becoming obsolete. He fashioned Claris’ business model around a more transparent and team approach. Bringing architecture, engineering and construction expertise under the same roof allows a holistic, yet streamlined, approach to deliver the ultimate design/build experience.
