Design/Build Plus is a remodeling approach that offers homeowners distinct advantages over using the more complex design and bid approach.
With design and bid, you start with an architect and then bid the project to one or more construction firms to see if the plans can be built within your target budget. Too often they can’t, and you have to backtrack to redesign or spend more than you planned to.
With the design/build approach, you select one company that works with you from beginning to end—designing your project so that it can be built within your budget, building it and standing behind it with warranty services after it is complete. Increased budget and cost control, cost savings, ease, simplicity and improved communications are typically the benefits of the design/build approach.
And with a single point of responsibility, you’ll never find yourself in the uncomfortable position of being caught between your architect and builder should something go wrong.
The Gridley Company enhances the design/build process even further by providing the following with our Design/Build Plus services:
