We recognize that every remodeling and construction job is individual and unique just like our clients but every job follows a basic layout to ensure top quality and ultimate efficiency.
To give you a better understanding on how we operate, listed below is our design/build process we follow with all of our clients.
Step 1 – Let’s Get Acquainted
At our free on-site consultation, the Taylor Bryan Company will discuss your remodeling or construction project with you to gain an understanding of your goals and motivations. This ensures that we can make informed recommendations on how to meet your needs. We will also discuss your budget and provide an estimate for your project. Next, we will prepare a Pre-Construction Design Agreement, which will outline an estimate of your project. At this time, the agreement is signed and design fee is paid, which is later credited to your construction contract. Now we are ready to start. Let the excitement begin!
Step 2 – Creating Your Space
Your designer will visit your home and confirm all the details of your project. At this visit, measurements will be taken and a project schedule will be determined. Then, your designer goes to work, creating the space that you envision. Once the plans are ready, we will set up a meeting to review them in detail with you. There may be only one design review meeting or several depending on the complexity of your remodeling or construction project.
Step 3 – Ironing out the Details
Before any of the work starts we want to make sure we have thought of everything. Some of the most important details will be decided in your Selections Meeting. Flooring, lighting, cabinets, and much more must be decided in order to prepare an accurate budget. And we will help guide you through the process.
Once all of the selections and designs are finalized there will be a Budget and Plan Review where the complete budget for your project will be presented to you.
Step 4 – Time to Get Started
Approximately two weeks before construction starts on your project we will hold a Pre-Construction Meeting. During this meeting we will review the schedule with you. Once we have started working on your project, we will conduct a walk-thru with you each week where we will ask you for feedback on how things are going. We consider this a critical part of the process as it is our goal to make sure that we are meeting your expectations every step of the way.
Step 5 – Enjoying Your New Space
Once the final nail has been hammered and all work has been completed, we ask that you prepare a final completion list. We too, will prepare our own list of items that may need attention before your project is considered officially completed. The two lists will be compared and combined, and the Taylor Bryan Company will work to complete any outstanding items as quickly as possible.
The only thing left to do is relax and enjoy your new space!
