"Open - Book" Approach
Organization & Communication
Communication is key. We listen carefully to make sure we understand your expectations. Every project has an easy to understand schedule with clear, realistic milestones. This includes a Gantt schedule for your project which includes the critical-path tasks, non-
critical-path tasks, sequences, durations, and move-in date.
Design & Construction Estimate
Let's talk final touches. As we prepare to break ground, this is the time to complete and present estimates that fit your budget and timeline. We create a detailed project Budget spreadsheet, with all project costs listed by individual task and further classified by type of expense. We put you in control of your project and budget. At the end of the collaborative design / planning phase we will have created a set of plans and associated budget that meets your approval.
Step by Step Navigation
We're always thinking one step ahead. We'll chat about the initial design, planning, permitting, and construction. Our team will provide creative & efficient ideas to fulfill your vision on paper. We drill down into the project plans and specs to create a detailed written scope of work in bullet-list format. This is a valuable communication tool when soliciting fixed-price quotes from the subcontractors. By breaking the tasks into clear, easy-to-follow steps we get the best work and the best pricing from the subcontractors. This process has the added benefit of eliminating or reducing the chance of change-orders during construction.
Using Our Connections
Secondly, We have the necessary relationships - with consultants, subcontractors, and government building officials – for a smooth-running project. Your team will distribute requests for competitive bids from a minimum of three subcontractors in each specialty. We create bid-comparison spreadsheets with apples-to-apples analysis of the bids as they come in to share with you, and we review each bid with you
"From their timeliness, to their accommodating my needs, their quality of workmanship and right down to the end of the day clean up. Everything done was top notch and I am pleasantly surprised by how the team came together to get the job done."
"Thank you and the rest of your team again for the phenomenal job that you all did with
the project that you just completed for us in our home. The patience, attention to detail and professionalism that you all displayed made what we thought would be a stressful and uncertain experience as seamless and stress-free as a construction project of this type could possibly be."
"Walter did a great job explaining the project ahead of time, his staff was very friendly and professional, and when challenges made the project more difficult, Walter and his team rose to the occasion. He also came in ahead of schedule and below our budget!"
