Our Process

Our Process
WHAT IS DESIGN BUILD?
Design Build is a simple premise: the same firm that Designs your project also Builds it. This process ensures that one company is completely responsible and answerable for the life of the project, from initial concept through completion. By taking a one-stop-shop, team approach, Design Build means that you will no longer navigate through an overwhelming number of details, subcontractors or vendors alone.
Instead, our architects, engineers, designers, estimators, project managers and skilled construction professionals communicate and coordinate everything from our Design Center location. Design Build is simply a more time efficient, cost effective and accountable process (a study by the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) covering 351 projects showed that the Design-Build method reduced total project costs by 6% and improved delivery time by 33%). Read more about how your project will benefit from the Design Build process.

OUR DESIGN BUILD PROCESS
1. LISTEN & DISCOVER
Our collaboration begins with your first in-home meeting with the LEFF Design Team. We listen carefully to discover your core needs and align them with your vision of how you want to live in your home. Next, we introduce the Conceptual Design Process, where balancing of your needs and vision with the budget begins.

2. PRELIMINARY ESTIMATE & PRESENTATION
Our Presentation meeting walks you through a 3-D color project rendering of your space. “Try on” different finishes, fixtures, tiles, cabinets and color to see how your remodel will look before we even begin construction. We’ll fine-tune the written scope of work and work up a preliminary cost estimate.
