DESIGN-BUILD SERVICES FOR COLORADO HOME RENOVATIONS
A design-build company can bring your ideas to life, whether you plan to remodel your whole house or just a single room. This is not the same thing as hiring a general contractor. When you hire a design-build firm, you are guided through the entire remodeling process from concept to construction, rather than having to hire a general contractor and designer separately.
It is our passion to provide you with the space of your dreams, and having the process in place is the first step toward bringing them to life. Learn more about our unique design-build process and how we can help you achieve your dream home by contacting our team today.
CONTRACTOR VS. DESIGN-BUILD
When you use a general contractor for construction projects, you must manage multiple parties and contracts. Then you need to find a general contractor based on competitive bids. Multi-party management usually involves painstaking bidding and rebidding, coordinating multiple partners during construction, and rarely stays on time or within budget.
On the other hand, design-build is a streamlined method for delivering construction projects that involves a single contract between you and your design-builder. This method has become increasingly popular in recent years, as it improves quality, saves time, and reduces costs on projects. The FBC Remodel way also uses this method.
ADVANTAGES OF THE DESIGN-BUILD PROJECT DELIVERY METHOD VERSUS A GENERAL CONTRACTOR.
Construction managers and designers are constantly checking in with each other throughout the process from start to finish. It improves the quality of work done in your home and fosters collaboration, which often results in project innovations tailored to your particular needs.
It also helps knock out any arising issues in the material selection and construction phases when the designer and builder are consistently involved. Since your designer and builder work so closely together, all focus remains on protecting your interest throughout the process.
Through consistent, streamlined communication between design, construction engineering, and the construction team, the design-build method reduces the overall costs of your project. A design-build approach reduces the number of change orders by providing complete property information and spotting errors or omissions early in the design process. With a general contractor, these issues don’t present themselves until construction is underway or even later on.
As both your designer and construction manager know your budget from the start, you’re more likely to stick to your budget when using design-build. So, your team will be focused on the budget throughout the whole process and come up with innovative ways to achieve the result you want.
Last but not least, the design-build method minimizes the amount of money spent on team members by reducing the project timeline.
As your designer and builder work closely together, the builder is involved early in the planning process, which enables construction engineering details to be incorporated into your design plans and enhance the project’s constructability.
Since everyone is involved from the beginning, both the design and construction phases can be completed faster, and construction can begin even before design plans are finalized. During traditional design-bid-build, plans must be finalized by the designer, competitive bids must be found and compared, and then construction can begin. When designer and builder work separately, bids can be far over budget, which can lead to re-designs and re-biddings.
Traditionally, you would act as a middleman between the designer and contractor(s), and might even intervene in disputes between the two. When you design-build, one contract is executed. Only one designer is involved. There is a single project manager. Only one company is involved. Accountability will always be clear.
We choose to work with FBC Remodel because we liked the process they have with being able to see the design before committing to the project. Some of the other companies we looked at required committing to the design without envisioning what the results could look like. This was essential to know who we would be able to do the project with. Around the second time, it was such a great experience, particularly with the people involved with the project the first time. I think they were great communicators and excellent to work with.
WHY CHOOSE DESIGN-BUILD OVER A CONTRACTOR OR A NEW BUILD?
You set yourself up for success when you select a design-build firm. As the middleman between a designer and a general contractor, you won’t have to worry about keeping track of a construction schedule because we will handle everything for you. We guarantee you won’t have to worry about a thing during the remodeling process.
Because we are a design-build firm, we have the unique opportunity to create a space and experience that are uniquely yours. In addition to the typical builder-grade materials you would see in many remodels or new homes, our award-winning designers have access to high quality, custom materials. Our designers will be able to create the perfect space for you based on what you want and need. As opposed to selecting from a limited list of options for cabinets, flooring, lighting, etc., you will have the freedom to choose whatever you’d like, and we’ll walk you through making the best choices for your space and budget.
You can move on with your life while your remodel is being completed, as we will handle all of the planning, monitoring and construction details. After that, you can enjoy your new space knowing that it was carefully monitored and completed exactly as you wanted!

Visualizing & Constructing Your Colorado Home Renovation
As part of our follow-up visits, our design team will take detailed measurements of your living space and create a CAD drawing of your home as it is built. To better visualize the existing space and how it will be transformed, you can use this drawing as a reference. Our team will present you with possible design options using 3D renderings, enabling you to see an accurate picture of the end result of the renovation.
We will present you with our design options, and you will have the opportunity to make any necessary changes. The collaborative approach ensures the final product will be exactly what you envisioned for continued satisfaction. Construction can begin once you are completely satisfied with the final design.
We will provide you with a detailed timeline for your remodeling project, detailing what you can expect at each stage. After 7 to 16 weeks, depending on the scope of the project, your remodel will be complete and you can finally enjoy your new space!

“FBC has the process down from start to finish. Great company to work with. Communication was great.”
– Carole S.
“We are very happy with our finished product and look forward to enjoying it for years to come. We had a a pretty good idea of what we wanted to include in the basement and they helped us make it happen. When we got down to the punch list items, they picked up on some stuff that we had not identified, and we really appreciated that and felt like they were looking out for us.”
– Patrick G.
“Design Process an Project Management was top notch! Couldn’t have been more pleased with the communication throughout! The final design was incredible! Seeing the project come to life was a lot of fun. We spend all our time in the basement now. Favorite space in the house!”
– Tim G.
“The FBC team was great to work with and managed our project effectively from start to finish.”
– Eric K.
“McKinley was amazing to work with during the first part of the process. She listened to all of our ideas and made a design plan that fit perfectly with how we envisioned our space. She was very helpful with suggestions and making sure we understood the pros and cons of our decisions. She helped us figure out what exactly we wanted and made the dream we had a reality. Our Project Manager, Dominic, was wonderful to work with as well. He picked up right where McKinley left off and made sure we understood the process of construction and what was going on with the schedule. There was a slight delay in our cabinets, which wasn’t expected, but he immediately put it on our radar and kept us updated on the progress. We really appreciated that he didn’t hide from the bad news and that he brought it to our attention. Both of them were great to work with during this entire process and we would highly recommend them and FBC to anyone!”
