B&G American Contractors handle both design and construction, which means you can expect greater reliability.

Design Build remodeling is becoming a much more common and sensible approach to the remodeling process. Design Build is a process whereby a home/business owner works with one company through the entire remodeling/building process. This process includes four phases: Design Phase, Detailed Preliminary Proposal, Selections and Final Construction Planning & Construction Phase.

whychoosedesignbuild

1. Everybody is on the same team: We’re all in this together and we all have the same goal –to arrive at a successful project that meets or exceeds the client’s expectations for their project. When challenges are encountered on a project (and there are always challenges), pointing fingers is not an option, everyone rolls up their sleeves and works on solutions.

2. Total accountability: One entity is accountable for everything –including how the end result looks, how much it costs and the timeline of completion.

3. Continuity: A design-build firm is involved from start to finish, which adds an inherent efficiency.

4. Expertise: Design-build firms are experts in both fields. The principals should be licensed architects with formal architectural training and experience in the architecture field. They should also have professional experience in construction and understand pricing, sequencing and how buildings go together. If they’re anything like us, they have professional structural engineering experience to boot.

5. Professional guides: A design-build firm is a beacon to clients throughout the process, guiding the way to the best possible outcome. Design-build refines a system from beginning to end and manages the chaos into orderly steps.

6. Involvement: 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 taking an involvement they’re guaranteeing that they get the outcome and satisfaction of their goals.

7. Collaboration: Design-build cuts out the big egos so common in the design industry. In design-build the client retains total control over the project and the team is there to empower them.

8. The best kind of communication is open, honest and often: Design-build is transparent because we want clients to understand the process and to know what’s going on. The best partnerships 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 and it becomes the agreement for the entire project.

9. Time is of the essence: Design and construction involves managing hundreds of timelines that need to coordinate in lockstep. Design-build creates opportunities for clients to sit with big decisions, ask questions, and consider their options. The design-build system is highly adaptive and responsive. Big decisions can be revisited during construction without change orders or additional fees.

10. Cost savings: Inherent to the design-build model is a savings of approximately 10% of the project costs.
