THE DESIGN-BUILD
ADVANTAGE

Working with one integrated team from start to finish has many advantages over trying to coordinate resources between design firms, construction companies, and project managers. Not only does it save you money, but it leads to a better quality job because the designers have real experience building.

QUALITY WORK

Our Design & Build firm knows not only what it will take to draw your project up on paper, but knows how to build and finance your project as well. This building experience gives G Design a major advantage when planning your project, as they design it to meet performance and budgetary needs, not just the minimum design requirements. This innovative approach often results in developing projects even better than initially imagined. Furthermore, the construction goes more smoothly because our designers are able to think like a builder and anticipate and counter-act potential problems. Our contractors and designers are working side by side, in constant communication.

COST SAVINGS

G Design & knows how to design the project so that the construction will fit within your budget. With actual building experience, they project how much materials and labor will cost up front, and can gear your project to meet your needs from the beginning. Anticipating the construction process also means better preparation for the actual build of your job, resulting in fewer changes and unexpected costs and change orders down the road.

BETTER COMMUNICATION

Better communication means less work for the homeowner. Working as a team allows designers and builders to have streamlined communication, resulting in a smooth project flow. This not only means less work for the designers, builders, and administrators which keeps costs down, but also means less work for the homeowner as they only have one office to call, one bill to pay, and one plan to follow. Trying to coordinate between architects, builders, and sub contractors individually about scheduling, billing, and planning can be a huge headache. G Family Construction & G Design take care of all of that in one harmonious swoop.

FASTER TURNAROUND

It is no surprise that jobs done with the Design & Build approach finish faster than those built using separate firms. Working as a team brings efficiency and means less time wasted trying to communicate and fix problems such as design changes, budget misconceptions, and scheduling, and more time getting quality work done. This means more time for you to enjoy your new Design & Build project.

ALREADY HAVE THE PLANS?

STILL A BETTER BUILD 

Choosing to work with a G Family Construction when you already have your plans drawn still gives you the advantage of using our Design team.  Problems often arise in the field when doing construction projects.  Having our own design team makes it easier and faster for us to update plans, pass inspections, and move forward when architects are too busy to make changes.  G Design can also help you select finishes and fine-tune the details of your project along the way.
