The Building Process
The design-build process is unique to the home building industry because it seeks to design the home to the budget of the project owner. In contrast to traditional design-bid-build, the owner is provided constant cost feedback even in the early stages of design. What this means for you is that choices about the design can be weighed against cost information (in addition to personal preferences). This provides you with more complete information for decision-making and ultimately saves time during design. It also provides a much smoother transition from design to construction. There are no surprises, and always knowing where you are in the budget and constantly collaborating with the architects and builders throughout makes the process much more enjoyable for everyone.
At the first meeting, we will learn about your objectives for the project, share information about our design build program, and address any questions or concerns specific to your project. Our objective in meeting with each client is that there is an architect and builder suited to each client and, while it isn’t always us, we want to assist everyone in reaching that right fit. We have an extensive referral network and will do our best to refer out the jobs which aren’t a good fit for us.
