The design-build process makes a building project much simpler. With many “traditional” construction projects, the process will initially involve a series of contractors bidding against each other to secure a project. Design-build operations work differently – it means that you are able to deal with just one firm from the time the first idea is put on paper until the final finish work is done. We collaborate with our customers, architects, engineers, subcontractors and suppliers to produce an outstanding project where satisfaction is achieved on all fronts. Because of this, we are continually able to meet and exceed expectations on every single phase of operations.
Acting as a design-build general contractor, we are able to bring all of your creative requirements under one umbrella. By working closely with clients and other external services, we can take complete control of a project from the architectural design stage all the way through to completion. As the process develops, we’ll be able to take care of every single aspect of your development including subcontracting, materials, electrical and water supplies, roofing and many more. This represents a superb all-in-one option that’s becoming increasingly popular in recent times.
Initially, we will provide a detailed consultation where we can establish your overall requirements. The consultation will concentrate on your lifestyle, ideas, personal preferences and ongoing concerns. This will assist in building basic design principles and establishing the parameters to which we will carry out any subsequent work. We’ll also compile an affordable budget to meet your requirements and offer our own ideas to help make your project a complete success.
Exploring the finer details of any potential design-build project is an absolute necessity that allows for a seamless transition from dream to reality. Once consultations are complete, we can then move on to detailed design planning, applying for permits and, ultimately, commencing work.
When a home design idea is created, it is often the case that an architect is hired and the planning details will be produced from a purely aesthetic viewpoint. While this does work in some cases, it must be remembered that an architect will often overlook many of the practicalities or costs that are associated with the actual development of a project.
Alternatively, those that simply choose to hire a builder will enjoy a greater deal of functionality but the final design may lack genuine flair or creativity. To combine both of these aspects together separately usually equates to a severe rise in the overall cost of a construction project.
By employing our design-build services, clients are able to enjoy a complete service that incorporates every single ingredient required to produce the perfect design on a cost-effective budget. Because we operate as a general contractor on a design-build project, we are able to allow for all additional costs before work begins. In addition to utilizing our own experienced workforce, we also have access to some of the most prolific electricians, plumbers and interior decorators in the business.
The integration of quality designs and effective construction have seen costs spiral out of control on many occasions. The design-build concept manages to keep all of the necessary requirements ‘in-house’ and this helps in keeping projects running to schedule without breaking budgets.
As a project evolves, we continue to communicate with clients so that any further questions can be answered. We place a high degree of importance on the continued interaction with our clients throughout every phase of the project.
