As a Design/Build contractor, Blanc & Bailey Construction, Inc. combines design services with construction services all from one source, providing you with a seamless, more functional and cost effective project.
If you are building a home or renovating your existing home, it requires the coordination of many different trades -- from designers and engineers to suppliers and craftsmen. The Design/Build process simplifies this coordination for you, creating an efficient and cost effective method for completing your building project.
Why Choose Design/Build?
If you are considering a new home, or a home renovation, design/build can offer many advantages.
Design/build firms have made customized design services affordable to a wider population. Blanc & Bailey Construction will produce a design that you love at a cost that you can afford. Our plans focus on production, function and construction, ensuring that you will love the design and that it can be constructed within your budget.
Working with a design/builder results in a single source of accountability who has the knowledge and expertise to design and construct your project within a realistic budget. Hands-on knowledge of the design requirements aids in the estimating and purchasing process, which are critical to meeting a realistic budget.
A Design/Build contractor has a team of trade contractors they work closely with to provide cost and design feedback during the design process. This approach sometimes helps to identify potential cost problems or develop new ideas for a better design with a more cost effective solution.
Practical Construction Knowledge
When the construction company is also your design firm, it is more likely that your project is buildable and feasible. The design/builder has the knowledge of building products, warranties and competitive pricing. This translates to knowing what products and building techniques are best suited for your project within your budget.
Design/builders are involved from start to finish. They have heard your ideas, and understand your goals, they’ve made suggestions to realize your goals and they manage the team who will ultimately complete the project based on your original ideas. Being able to work with one source from design through construction improves communication and minimizes ideas being lost in interpretation.
Should problems arise (and they will!), sole accountability prevents your project from becoming bogged down with finger pointing between individuals. Problems are resolved quickly and often without the client even knowing there was a problem.
With Design/Build, the relationship with your builder starts during the design phase. This allows your builder to learn what is important to you; and you get to know your building contractor before the project begins. The design phase allows you to gain knowledge of the key contacts within the company and its attention to customer service which will be crucial during construction.
