Benefits of Design Build Remodeling
TRADITIONAL DESIGN-BID-BUILD METHOD
Too often, homeowners approach their remodeling or construction project by hiring a designer first, and then approaching a contractor to get an estimate on how much their project will cost to build it. In this traditional “design-bid-build” model, architects and designers seldom work together with a targeted budget in mind. As a result after spending money on design plans, they learn too late that their project is too expensive to build.
Because of this, Many homeowners sadly choose to abandon the project altogether. Or, homeowners are forced to compromise many of their remodeling wish list items in order to complete their project.
Alternatively, at Talmadge Construction, we offer a different method of home construction and renovation called “design-build.” Often referred to as the “all-in-one” construction method, the design-build process allows the architect/designer, contractor, and homeowner to all work together, from beginning to end, to achieve the homeowner’s vision. Multiple design options are explored, along with the associated costs, until a final design is determined and agreed upon.
Any changes or unexpected issues that arise are resolved in real-time, with the architect and contractor updating the plan throughout the process, always with the budget and timeline in mind. This helps keep the project running smoothly with less “surprises” and hidden costs during construction.
Design-build has become more popular over the last decade because it has proven to be a reliable method for keeping projects on budget and on schedule through its streamlined project management, enhanced communication, and efficient collaboration between the design and construction teams.
Ultimately, the design-build process has helped homeowners reduce their anxiety about remodeling their home. It also results in a fixed price cost estimation, providing peace of mind and clarity.
