Our Process

Pre Construction

In pre-construction, we work with you to determine your requirements for the project and develop the plans accordingly. We also compile preliminary budgets at this early phase to insure the project design stays within the preliminary budget. Once we have approved final plans, the bidding process begins.  After review and approval of the detailed bid, the permit process can begin.
This process provides clarity and clear understanding between owner and contractor.


During construction, we provide on-site management of our qualified subcontractors through our project managers, and monitor the project schedule to ensure a timely completion.
Owners are notified with ample time when decisions and selections are required.  With guidance from our in house designer, we relieve the stress that can arise during the selection process.


Our company carries on cost management efforts during the entire project.  As construction approaches project closeout, we review all provided allowances and verify that punch list items are completed before sign-off. We then compile all the closing documentation to supply you with all the necessary warranties, manuals, and instruction during the final walk through.
