Why Design-Build is the best way to remodel your home
What are the advantages of design-build over the conventional remodeling process? This is a great question. With over two decades of experience, we would like to point out why this process is the best way to remodel your home.
Everyone is on the same team
Everybody involved is in the project together. We all have the same objective to arrive at a successful end result that meets or exceeds the client’s expectations. When challenges or problems emerge on a project (and there are always problems). Blaming others is not an option, everyone at Talon Construction rolls up their sleeves and works on solutions.
One organization is responsible and accountable for everything. This includes how the end result will look and function, how much it costs and how long it will take to complete. When the team that designs the project also builds the project there becomes more focus given to pricing and scheduling of the entire project. Accountability, from the permit and processing fees, to the construction costs and management, and everything in between. Design-build focuses on results, not excuses.
A design-build remodeling company is involved from the start of the project to its completion. This adds a permanent and inseparable quality to the project. The chance for things to fall through the cracks is greatly diminished or eliminated completely.
Expertise: Design-build firms are experts
We have over 20 years of experience in the remodeling of existing homes. And an understanding of how to price the work associated with the project and the sequence of how they go together. With the knowledge of the ever changing permitting procedures and building codes of each municipality.
In the new economy, we’re noticing new home builders trying to call themselves remodeling firms without having any field training in existing homes. Likewise, we’ve raised our eyebrows at small one or two man outfits who claim to, all the sudden, be accomplished at design-build.
3D renderings allow clients to follow the design process in an easy-to-visualize manner
A 3D rendering brings a design to life before a project begins construction. It is the art of creating three-dimensional images that show the attributes of a proposed architectural design. Perhaps the greatest benefit of using 3D renderings is so the Homeowner can see exactly how to translate their dream home from blueprint to reality. These renderings illustrate depth, dimension, and scale far more effectively than static sketches. They are also very useful in planning interior design, even down to the placement of furniture or light fixtures.
Professional remodeling guide
We’ve all heard the stories that design and construction can get out of hand and unclear to what you are actually getting done. Design and construction shouldn’t be chaotic or stressful. A design-build company is a guiding light to clients throughout the process, pointing the way to the best possible outcome. Design-build refines a system from start to finish and manages the chaos into orderly steps.
Involvement is key
Design-build operates under the assumption that the client actually wants to be an active participant in the design and construction of their home. By being involved through design they receive the final product desired and the satisfaction of their vision being attained. Providing an avenue to get involved with their project is inspiring and gives people a lasting sense of pride about their home. Design-build removes the big egos so common in the design industry. In design-build the client retains in total control over the project and the team is there to empower and coach them.
Design-build is transparent
The best kind of communication is open, honest and often because we want our clients to understand the process and to know what’s going on at all times. The best collaborative efforts work, not because people say what everyone wants to hear, but because they say what everyone needs to hear. Through clear communication the budget is defined early on so there are no surprises along the way.
Design and construction involve managing many timelines that need to be coordinated in sync. Design-build creates opportunities for clients to be a part of big decisions, and ask questions, and consider their options. This process is highly diverse and conventional wisdom says if you make changes it will cost you more and this is not true in design-build. We are confident that if you design-build for your next project you will “Fall in love with your home all over again.”
