Initial Design Consultation & Budget
We will visit your home or place of business to discuss your project objectives. It’s an opportunity for you to meet with us in person and for our team to learn more about you, your lifestyle and the work you’d like to have done. We will ask questions regarding your project expectations, such as…. The meeting will allow you to see if we’re going to be a good match for you, both personality-wise and professionally.
Design Documents & Estimate
At this point, we will work with your architect or bring our trusted architect to provide schematic drawings, refine your project scope and provide a more accurate estimate. As part of this process, we will also bring key trade partners (i.e., plumbing, electric, masonry, etc.) as part of our estimating process. Finally, we will discuss the type of material and design selections you may be interested in (i.e., cabinetry, countertops, and flooring). This is really to help us assess if you are looking for mid-level to high-end to custom finishes.
There may be building and/or site conditions identified in the site visit that need to be reviewed with your architect or an engineer.
Based on the previous meetings, we will draft a construction agreement with a written scope of work, a projected timeline, and a payment schedule.Once we have a signed contract we can assemble your team of professions – a project manager, lead carpenter and crew of any other needed tradesmen.
The Construction Phase
Managing your Life or Business
We are here to make your life as easy as possible during your renovation project. We take special efforts to protect your living and working spaces – whether it’s building dust barriers or just keeping the work area clean. Even more to the point, we respect your privacy and your lifestyle. From cleanliness to manners, our team is aware that this is your home or office and we treat it the way we would want others to treat our personal and professional spaces.
Managing the Work
First and foremost, we strive to deliver quality workmanship. Our carefully selected team of highly skilled craftspeople shares this same core purpose. At the same time, we’re committed to getting the job done on time and on budget and that’s all about managing the project logistics. Our experienced project managers and software tools help to keep it all running smoothly.
We stay in regular communications with our clients and give them online access to their own project tracking data to stay up to date on where everything stands.
While we try to meticulously review the design documents in the preconstruction phase of the project to avoid changes later on, things do occasionally come up. We will try to accommodate changes whenever possible if they are handled with a change order form that clearly communicates the nature of the change and any cost or scheduling adjustments that are required.
