Building Process

We understand that embarking on a new construction project or a major remodel can often be overwhelming, especially if you’ve never done it before. Knowing what’s happening now—and what to expect along the way—is key to the success of your project. So often over looked, we are fully immersed in our clients’ projects, making sure all parties are on the same page, from dream stage to final walkthrough and beyond.

Here’s what you can expect when you work with us:

  1. Introduction: getting to know each other. In our initial meeting, you’ll either bring a preliminary drawing from an architect or designer, or come to us with an idea, and we’ll point you in the right direction to some architects and designers.
  2. Bidding: Once we have preliminary construction plans, we then put together a bid proposal, putting actual numbers to the project scope. We are committed to providing the most detailed, accurate and transparent bids possible. We then itemized the bid allowing you to understand exactly how we arrived at our total cost, and make it easier to find areas for savings when necessary. This is when we also meet with subcontractors (mechanical, engineering and plumbing) to arrive at their costs. Once all revisions to the bid have been finalized and approved, we can look at the different contract options, then we’re ready for construction.
  3. Construction: Your project begins with permits, scheduling of sub-contractors and ordering of materials. We are heavily involved in the construction phase of the project every step of the way and provide cost records and status updates to you regularly, both to keep you informed and your project on budget and on schedule.
  4. Project Closeout: Once we have completed construction, we conduct walkthroughs with you and create a punch list of every detail—no matter how small—to be completed before final sign off.
