Our Design/Build approach to remodeling offers a superior method of project delivery that ensures every aspect of the owner's intent is implemented. As we are the primary source of communication and management on a project, there is no duplication of responsibilities and related costs. Because we answer only to the owner, your best interest is our only interest.

Development

  • Obtain preliminary design review approvals
  • Subcontractor walk-through
  • Preliminary engineering analysis (if required)

Phase 2: Final Plans and Costs

Plans and Specifications

  • Construction drawings: plot plan, floor plan, elevations and sections
  • Engineering: plans, details and calculations (if required)
  • Shop Drawings: cabinetry and custom fabrications (if required)
  • Finish schedule for products and surfaces

Costs and Contract

  • Detailed construction cost breakdown
  • Construction critical path schedule
  • Construction contract

Phase 3: Project Construction

Pre-Construction

  • Obtain permits and approvals
  • Order products
  • Schedule subcontractors
  • Pre-construction site preparation

Construction

  • Management of labor, subcontractors and suppliers
  • Coordination of building department and engineering inspections
  • Facilitate custom fabrications
  • Provide ongoing project status information

Completion
