Remodeling can be intimidating and unfortunately, our industry is riddled with horror stories. We don't want you to be one of them. That is why we have refined our processes throughout the years and chosen the Design Build model. This is a different approach than many other remodeling companies, but we know that it offers our clients a far different experience. We believe that a systematized process offers our clients efficiency, cost effectiveness and an overall better remodeling experience. Here are some reasons why we use the Design Build approach:
The Design Build approach offers our clients the benefits of greater design and construction integration with singular responsibility for the project’s overall process and outcome and often a reduction in total project costs. By collaborating on the architectural design as part of the budgeting process, we also ensure your project will meet your budget requirements. That's an important element to understand because very few remodeler's utilize this process. Why? It takes more time to estimate and design - meaning you'll have a very real understanding of the cost, with fewer hidden surprises!
Here are just a few of the reasons we use this process and why you should seriously consider selecting a remodeler who utilizes the Design Build approach for your home remodeling project:
Homeowner’s want their remodeling project completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. The Design Build approach provides one point of contact with clear accountability for all of the project’s requirements, from concept to completion. Parker Design Build Remodel takes a team approach with the architect, designer and trade contractors to quarterback and resolve any challenges that arise with ultimate responsibility for moving the project to completion in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
When the project is being designed and taken from vision to paper, there are a variety of factors that can influence cost. The importance of a design-build team approach cannot be overstated. An architect is responsible for putting your dreams and vision on paper, but not for knowing current building trends, products and pricing. In contrast, the contractor is responsible for keeping your project in line with your vision and on target with your budget. By having a design team (typically an architect, designer, contractor) consider the homeowner’s vision and budget during the design process, more attention can be given to current pricing, building trends and scheduling during in the design phase, which greatly reduces surprises and overruns as the project moves forward. This also provides the opportunity for value-engineering, during the design phase. The team can recommend alternative products or services that may reduce cost and/or improve efficiency. Using the team approach also limits the need to re-design, which can be costly and time consuming. Ultimately, Parker's team is directly responsible for managing the team approach and meeting the client’s needs and expectations.
Design Build inherently provides higher quality for several reasons. First, Parker provides a workmanship warranty. This means that there are no incentives to cutting corners or using inferior products or low-ball contractors where a project is often awarded on price, not value. Since Parker has established long-term relationships with all of our trade contractors, they understand our business philosophy and rely on us for ongoing work. Therefore, they are incented to provide consistent high quality to maintain that steady stream of business.
Many remodeling projects never make it past the planning stage because of poor planning, erroneous information, substandard quality or inaccurate cost assessments. In addition, there is a significantly lower risk of producing a design that is not feasible, particularly due to budget constraints. When Parker's team is responsible for everything that happens before, during and at the completion of your project, we have a higher on-time and on-budget completion rate than our competitors. Ultimately, we also achieve a higher client satisfaction rating.
