Advantages of Our Design-Build Process

Design-build creates a team-first approach to the project rather than the adversarial atmosphere that can arise when the design and construction teams are separate entities.  Our design team is continually communicating with the construction team to maintain a focus on design goals within the context of budget and construction efficiency.  Design questions arise during construction on every project.  Having our own in-house design team means we can respond creatively and quickly to keep the project moving and looking good. Our Architects and Construction Team share a common common objective to provide you with a rewarding experience and a great home.    


We make it a priority to work with you to meet your budget goals and with over 30 years of estimating and construction experience, we know what things cost.  We use that knowledge to give you accurate and realistic estimates and help you prioritize design elements to fit your budget.  This allows our in-house design team to develop plans with your budget in mind.  We continually monitor the budget throughout the design and construction process so there are no unpleasant surprises along the way.  


Our Design-Build process means you are working with one company from start to finish.  Our in-house Architects lead the design and will be with you from the beginning until you move in.  This greatly minimizes misunderstandings or conflict as the project moves from design to construction.  With the whole team working together in the same company, the communication is better and everything runs more efficiently and easily.  


Construction of your home is a complex process involving hundreds of decisions and a large team of professionals, suppliers and tradespeople.  Therefore, the success of your project depends on effective organization and communication.  To accomplish this, we use a sophisticated cloud-based project management system that allows us to communicate all project information with you and our team in real time.  Your project information including schedules, tasks, documents, photos, files, job site logs, selections, costs and approvals are all handled through this system.  Our system is simple to use and allows you to access all of your project information at any time using your computer, tablet or smart phone.  You will always be informed and know what to expect.
