WHY DESIGN BUILD IS A GREAT MODEL AND HOW IT WORKS
For us, design build means that as your builder, Align Build has strong role in project decisions from the early development stages. This can be from the initial project design, providing you with high quality 2D and 3D image drawings and creative ideas, or consulting with you and your chosen designer or architect to help guide technical and material discussions. When appropriate, we will enlist the help an interior designer to guide finish material, fixture and color choices. Our engagement at the very beginning of a project can help to lower costs, tailor designs to work with our preferred building techniques and company strengths (the use of SIPS, ICF’s ect.) and ensures that we have a strong relationship with our clients before a single nail is driven.
HOW TO GET FROM THE DESIGN STAGE TO Estimating COSTS AND TIMELINES FOR YOUR PROJECT
After the design for your project is completed, including any engineering and site surveying, you will be given a cost estimate for the proposed scope of work. This will be refined and finalized after all material and finish choices are made, and the project permitting is completed. Before on-site work begins, the final project cost and proposed timeline will be presented to you along with a detailed building contract.
