Answer A Few Questions That May Uncover Benefits to Using the Design Build Process for Your Project:
Benefit: A single source (company) is responsible, fully accountable for, and controls all sub-contractors and team members.
Remodeling or building a new home can be overwhelming and stressful. If you've hired a contractor in the past, you may have experienced this. With Design Build, everything happens 'under one roof' - that is, one company is responsible for all aspects of the project. So, the very first step in the Design Build process is understanding your specific pain points, past experiences or underlying concerns. Was there a single point of communication keeping the project organized? Was there a clearly defined schedule, and was it met? Were any problems addressed quickly? Was your space respected e.g. left clean after every work day?

Have you determined the investment you are willing and able to put toward your project?

Designing To Your Budget is what we call the "early reality test," and is critical for maximizing your dollars and minimizing surprises or cost overages during the construction phase.
