Designs Worth Building
WHAT IS DESIGN BUILD?
Design Build is said to be a way of approaching remodeling by using the contractor’s professional expertise. This is accomplished by identifying a thorough Scope of Work while providing professional guidance, all while staying on a mutually agreed upon budget.
Homeowners are invited to ENJOY the design process, working as part of our TEAM to create their ideal space. From Beginning to End, we DESIGN, GENERAL CONTRACT, and BUILD your dream project. Clients hire J.P. Hoffman Inc. to design their new or remodeled space AND hire us to General Contract the project. Design Build clients will view 3D images of their proposed design and work with us to edit it to their liking and budget. J.P. Hoffman’s commitment to quality and integrity ensures clients that from concept to timely completion, they’re in good hands.
PHASES OF YOUR REMODEL
Initial Consultation – We discuss the desired project and feasibility with professional guidance. Homeowner’s wants, needs, tastes and style preferences are critical during this process. We also review a target budget range.
Design Build Contract – Upon determining that the desired project fits within the recommended target budget range, an investment is made by the homeowner to proceed to the next Design phase. The contract amount varies based on the potential scope of work.
Design and Scope Development – On paper, we start building. The goal is to build the project within the agreed upon target budget range. We finalize a design, develop & confirm the complete scope of work, assist with product selections and consult with our specialty trades as needed (i.e. plumbing, electrical). We commit to keeping the project within budget and communicate with you if the direction may exceed the target budget range.
Construction Agreement – At the conclusion of the Design Phase, we present you with a solid construction agreement identifying all work to be performed, a preliminary loose project schedule, a project payment schedule (based on milestones) and an estimated start date.
Planning and Organization – Our office takes the lead on managing the project. We file all necessary permits, order all materials (unless otherwise noted), schedule sub trades and establish the communication center with you.
Construction – “It’s FINALLY HERE!” The day you’ve been waiting for gets underway with the preparation of demolition areas with dust control measures. We perform renovations per our design and construction agreement. Here we address any additional needs and concerns.
Completion – When construction is complete, we do a final walk-through and discuss warranty. By using quality products and building materials, we leave your project knowing we have truly delivered lasting value. We provide a one-year labor warranty and assist with manufacturer’s warranties if needed. If 100% satisfied with your project, we request a review of our company and work.
