What To Know About the Design-Build Process

A design-build model is a method of contracting in which one entity is hired to manage both the design and construction of a home renovation project under one contract. So what makes a design-build firm the right option? Instead of having multiple people handle different aspects of the job a design-build firm handles each process for you. This helps your project run as smooth as possible.

If you aren’t familiar with how the design-build process works here is a brief outline of Penn Construction & Design’s comprehensive design-build timeline.

Understand. This is the first step in the process. It allows us to learn more about your space and remodeling ideas. Before we can start designing your space we need to take proper measurements, understand your wants versus needs, and answer any questions you might have.

Design. After we meet with you and understand what you want to achieve from your remodel we begin the design process. We create a custom plan tailored to your wants, needs and homes potential. One perk of the design-build model is the ability to provide you with an accurate expectation of cost up front.

Scope. The scope of work estimates are determined by the design & calculation of investment costs will be determined by the project scope.

Agreements. Once we have finalized the project scope and budget we review/sign all proper contracts.

Pre-Construction. We prepare to kick off construction and will acquire all necessary permits, have a final on-site meeting, and will create a schedule.

Execution. This is the fun part! We begin renovations. Throughout the entire project we will remain transparent and proactive in communicating with you.

Final Walk Through. Once the project is completed we do a final walk through with the client to ensure satisfaction.
