Do you want a beautiful kitchen? How about a basement that flows with the rest of your home? If you are looking for a truly remarkable space, then follow these simple steps as we walk you through our design/build process. Our process puts the homeowner first, and we make sure our clients are comfortable with our design team, process, and design before they even spend a dime:
A Design-builD process like no other
DESIGN-BUILD SERVICES FOR Illinois HOME RENOVATIONS
Our design-build remodel process starts with you — your aspirations, your needs, your lifestyle.
FBC Remodel’s award-winning interior designers invest the time to truly understand your goals and desires and then skillfully work with our production and construction teams to create a space that fits your life and budget. We even consult with you, visit your space in person, and present 3D renderings of your completed designs before you make any monetary commitment. We want to earn your trust and get you excited about your project.
You also never have to worry about surprise costs popping up during the construction phase. We guarantee a fixed, agreed-upon price — no matter what.
REMODELING WITH TRANSPARENCY
Our collaborative design process means we’re in constant communication with you, so there are no surprises and you’re always in the know. You’ll get daily communication throughout your build process from a dedicated, expert construction project manager.
FBC’S REMODELING PROCESS
OUR DESIGN-BUILD BASEMENT PROCESS:
Ready to get started? You can contact us here on our site or via phone. You’ll get to speak with our design coordinator, Jenny, who will schedule you for your free in-home design consultation at a time and date that’s convenient for you.
We’re excited to listen and understand how your home is and isn’t working for you. Our number one priority for this visit is to learn what your needs are. How do you currently use the space? What do you wish it was like? How should it evolve with family in the future? Your dedicated designer will share our philosophy and explain our design/build process further. If we seem like a good match, we’ll move on to the design process.
At your Home: If there’s time, this step can take place during the first appointment. If not, we will come back at a mutually convenient time to create the “as built” drawing of your space.
As Built: Your designer will spend up to two hours in your space, creating an exact “as built” CAD drawing of the space that includes structural and mechanical features. Then, we work to turn an as-built drawing to an as-dreamed design.
Your design team will have worked out several plans that turn your needs into beautiful, smart designs. Our clients are amazed by the way our experienced designers bring their plans to life. We’ll walk through 3-D renderings to help you visualize your new space. You’re an important part of this meeting and an integral member of the design team, so be ready to collaborate. Your engagement is essential for creating a space that changes not just your home, but the way you live in it.
In this meeting, we will review final construction drawings and the menu of pricing options. Within the construction drawings you will see all detailed elements of your project. Full elevations and construction notes are completed. Within the pricing menu you will see how and which design elements impact the cost of the project. In this meeting, we bring the design and budget together, select a construction start date for your project and sign construction contracts.
Construction of your space will take between 7 and 16 weeks depending upon the scope and complexity of your space. You will receive a detailed construction calendar and weekly updates throughout the project.
Your new space is ready to be shared with the people you love! Enjoy!
