Armstead Construction Specializes in Design/Build Remodeling

Why Design/Build?

The design/build process offers a great option for those who are interested in expediting the process and who are working within a specific budget.

Design/Build is Less Expensive

  • There are fewer steps and parties involved, reducing costs.
  • Costly change orders are reduced because of better communication.
  • Budget monitoring is done throughout the process by the client and design/build team, eliminating hidden surprises.

Design/Build is Faster

  • Communicating with a single team streamlines the process, especially since time-consuming budget issues have been resolved along the way
  • A committed design/build team, including a project manager, has sole responsibility for the job staying on schedule

Here is how it works:

At the initial consultation, we:

  • Discover your needs and wishes and learn about your lifestyle
  • Review the feasibility of the project
  • Understand your budget

In the design stage, we:

  • Measure the existing house structure
  • Perform an initial check of mechanical/structural systems
  • Create required plans, including "as built" drawings as well as floor plans, elevations and any specialized drawings like electrical or mechanical
  • Assist with the selection flooring, appliances, cabinets, lighting, trim, finishes and other items
  • Prepare a work scope and specifications
  • Present final drawings and pricing

In the construction stage, we:

  • Obtain building permits
  • Assign a lead carpenter and project manager to your project
  • Develop a project plan with easy to read Gantt chart that is posted on the jobsite
  • Begin your remodeling project
  • Hold weekly, on site meetings with you
