What is Design- Build?
DESIGN-BUILD HOME REMODEL SERVICES FOR MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA
A design-build company is among the best ways to bring your ideas to life whether you’re planning a whole-house remodel or just one room. A design-build company is different from a general contractor. When you hire a design-build firm, you are guided through the entire remodeling process, from concept and design to construction, rather than dealing with a designer and a general contractor separately.
Being able to bring dream spaces to life is the first step to fulfilling our passion for providing you with the space of your dreams. We’d love to tell you more about our unique design-build process and how we can help you achieve your dream home.
CONTRACTOR VS. DESIGN-BUILD
With a general contractor, you manage multiple parties and contracts as part of the traditional construction project delivery method. Therefore, you must find your own designer and then a general contractor through competitive bidding. The process of managing multiple parties typically involves a painful process of bidding and rebidding, self-coordinating multiple partners at construction, and rarely stays within budget or on schedule.
By contrast, design-build is a streamlined construction project delivery method that involves one contract between you and the design-builder. A single contract represents this increasingly popular method of delivery, which improves quality, reduces costs, and saves time. FBC Remodel uses this method as well.
Advantages of the design-build project delivery method versus a general contractor.
Throughout the process, communication between the design and construction teams is ongoing. It is possible to enhance the quality of work in your own home while promoting collaboration, which can lead to project innovations customized to fit your needs at an affordable price.
Additionally, continuous involvement from the designer and builder can help to eliminate problems that may occur during the material selection and construction phases. Together with your builder, your designer protects your interests throughout the entire process.
Through streamlined, consistent communication and integration between design and construction, the design-build method reduces the overall costs of your project. As a result of complete property information, design errors or omissions are spotted early, resulting in fewer change work orders. Usually, these issues do not arise until the day of construction or even later in the project with a general contractor.
As your designer and construction manager know your budget from the beginning, design-build makes it easier to stick to your budget. Therefore, your team will focus throughout the entire project on the budget and come up with innovative and efficient ways to get the results you want.
Last but not least, the design-build method shortens your project timeline, reducing the cost of team members.
Due to the fact that your designer and builder work together, the builder is included early in the process so construction engineering considerations can be incorporated into your design and improve constructibility.
By involving everyone from the beginning, both the design and construction phases are expedited, allowing construction to be scheduled before the design is finalized. A design-bid-build project involves the designer finalizing the plans, finding and comparing competitive bids, and then proceeding to construction. If designers and builders do not work together, bids may be well over budget, requiring re-designing and re-bidding.
With a general contractor, you serve as the middleman between the designer and contractor(s), and can even be involved in disputes between the two. When you use a design-build method, you have only one contract. One designer. One construction manager. One company. And you’ll always know who to hold accountable.
WHY CHOOSE DESIGN-BUILD OVER A CONTRACTOR OR A NEW BUILD?
You are setting up your remodel for success when you choose a design-build company. Keeping track of a schedule or acting as the middle-man between a designer and a general contractor won’t be a concern because we will take care of it all for you. Your remodel will be stress-free with our process.
Because we are a design-build firm, we have the opportunity to create a unique space and experience for you. In addition to the typical builder-grade materials you will see in many remodels or newly built homes, our award-winning designers have access to high quality, custom materials. We can create a space that is truly unique and beautiful that is exactly what you want and need. We will provide you with the skilled designers to walk you through making the best choices for your space and budget rather than limiting you to a short list of cabinet, flooring, lighting, etc. options.
You can get on with living your life while your remodel is being completed by leaving the planning, monitoring, and construction details to us. You will then be able to enjoy your new space knowing that the project was carefully monitored and completed according to your specifications!
Visualizing & Constructing Your Minnesota Home Renovation
A CAD drawing of your home will be created using measurements taken during our follow-up visits. To better visualize how the existing space will be transformed, use this drawing as a reference. We will use 3D renderings to show you possible design options, allowing you to get a sense of the end result of your renovation.
You will have the opportunity to make any changes to the design as we present our options. As a result of this collaborative effort, you will receive an end result that exactly meets your expectations. Construction can begin as soon as you are satisfied with the final design.
Our team will provide you with a detailed timeline for your remodeling project, detailing what to expect at each stage of construction. Your remodel will be complete within 7 to 16 weeks, depending on the scope of the project.
