Our Process


Our exceptionally disciplined project management approach ensures the smoothest possible progression of every project from design through construction.  Our transparency gives you better control over costs, while our thoroughness minimizes the surprises and risks that are inherent in any building project. Our process includes the following steps:

Phone Consultation

When you contact us for the first time, we will spend time with you on the phone learning more about you and your project to advise you on the best next steps and whether our services are the right fit for you.

Initial Site Visit

During the complimentary initial site visit, we will visit your home or the jobsite to learn more about the vision and budget for your project, determine the construction feasibility of the project, review plans if you are already working with a designer, and offer some budgetary guidelines to help you finetune your vision. Often, clients rely on us to put the design and build team together. Some in-house design services are available as well.

Conceptual Budgeting

We will follow-up our initial site visit with a complimentary conceptual budget. This is not “a bid” — it is our best guess as to what price range your project will fall into based on your description of what you envision and similar projects we’ve built. It is a first step towards planning your project and determining whether your vision matches your budget so you can decide whether to move forward designing your project.

Preconstruction Services

These are the services we offer prior to construction to help you design and estimate your project. If you are already working with a designer, we will work hand in hand with them to develop pricing and provide value engineering alongside design development. Learn more
