We work side by side with all collaborators on your project from Day 1 to ensure that expectations around design, construction and finish levels are to your expectations. Bridging the expectations gap during this phase is critical to our shared success. We work hard to get the scope, budget and schedule just right.
Because we put so much effort on the Planning Phase, we go into every project with firm quotes (which we share with you) from our suppliers and trade partners for the bulk of the project before we even break ground. That takes a lot of the stress out of the process for you and we can focus on execution of a game plan rather than making one up as we go.
Post Construction Phase
We are always just a phone call away. We love it when clients call us years later, asking for advice about this or that. We want to be your go-to resource for your home and work hard to keep the lines of communication open.
Normally when you contract with a builder you either enter into a “Fixed Price” contract or a “Cost Plus” agreement. Frankly, both have their potential drawbacks.
Under a Fixed Price agreement there is a natural incentive for the builder to deliver your project at the lowest possible cost, as what is left over after all costs have been tallied is profit. When striving for the least cost sometimes quality can suffer as a result.
Under a Cost Plus agreement, each time you add or upgrade features those features are encumbered with an additional fee that is paid to the builder. Under this arrangement it is possible that you will pay your builder fees in excess of the value provided simply due to the price of the features you selected for your home. Additionally, in a Cost Plus agreement there is a tendency for builders to “under-bid” the estimated costs in order to win the job, knowing that the true cost of the project, and their subsequent margin, will be higher.
We offer a alternative to these well established pricing methods; we call it Partnership Pricing. We believe it represents a better alternative for you, the customer, because it gives you the flexibility of a cost plus agreement with the peace of mind of a fixed price agreement.
With Partnership Pricing our mission is to deliver your new home or remodeling project the way you want. Our fixed fee is a function of the value and contribution we provide, ensuring you get exactly what you want.
