As a design-build general contractor, we utilize the latest in 3D BIM (Building Information Modeling) software to help you visualize your home remodel project before final design decisions are made. 3D home design software allows you to compare one concept to another, imagine how the spaces will look and work together, and it also allows our subcontractors to visualize complex design concepts, ensuring accurate estimates and fewer construction surprises.
1. The Consultation: Our design-build process starts with a thorough interview in your home to help identify your project’s priorities. We discuss your wish list, review your inspiration pictures, discuss any potential restrictions on your project, and we also discuss responsible budgets with you.
2. Conceptual Designs: Once we get started in design we create a CAD drawing of your existing space and doodle some concepts in-house. Our design and construction team evaluate these for their functionality, cost, and overall aesthetics. From there we commit the design or designs that most suit your wish list into our 3D design software. We add simple finishes and then share your designs live, with you, right in our office. This allows us to work alongside you to explore some options together, sharing detailing options and clarifying the budget.
3. Explore Options: In some cases, we may decide together to explore a different design direction — perhaps expanding the scope of work and the budget to give you exactly what you are dreaming of. A typical example would be a kitchen remodel, one basic and another where a wall is removed to create a great room. With our 3D design and modeling, you will be able to compare concepts side-by-side, giving you the confidence that you are making the right decision for your home.
