4. Construction Agreement and Pre-Construction

Once final design has been approved, we will draw a fixed priced agreement on construction. This is the Design-Build difference. Because so much planning and decisions were made during the Design Process, we are able to get very accurate pricing that we stand behind. Once the Construction Agreement is approved, we will have an on site Pre-Construction meeting on how to prepare for renovation and review the project timeline.

5. Construction and Project Completion

The construction phase is where your concept and design come together.  Our team will work to impose as little impact on your daily life as possible. We take care of all permitting, licensing, insurance, project management, and keep you up to date with weekly on-site meetings.

 When construction is complete, we take extra steps to make certain every aspect of your renovation is perfect. Professional cleaners are hired so that all traces of construction dust are removed and a detailed inspection of work is completed to insure your complete satisfaction. 

And Viola! You now have a beautiful new space for your family to THRIVE in!
