Renovations & Additions
Whether you're remodeling a kitchen, taking down some walls, or even adding another floor, we can help you from start to finish.
Typical Process for Additions & Remodels
Step 1 - Feasibility - Can we do this or not?
The first thing we need to do is determine what it is that you'd like to do. This often involves meeting at your house to walk through the project scope of work. Typical questions we'll have for you are:
- What are you hoping to achieve with this renovation?
- What is your timeframe for this project?
- What is your construction budget?
One of the big things we usually identify at this point is if there will be structural work involved. This would require the help of a structural engineer that we would have to include so he or she can give us an estimate of the work that will be involved.
Step 2 - Design, Construction Documents, & Permits
Besides the actual construction itself, this part will involve the most work for everyone. Initially, we will design a few solutions for you and work with you to modify it so that it achieves your goals and fits within your budget. Often we will involve a General Contractor at this point in order to get more accurate estimates.
Step 3 - Construction
During this phase we will provide Construction Administration services. We do not manage the construction (that is the GC's area of expertise), but we stay involved throughout the construction period in order to ensure that you are getting what we designed to the level of quality you expect.
