DESIGN - BUILD
WHAT WE DO
G Family, Inc and G Design, LLC are a full service Design & Build firm specializing in all types of residential and light commercial "foundation-through-finish" build projects in Northern California. We undertake everything from complete custom new builds and remodels to minor repairs with integrity and superior craftsmanship. Our highest priority is providing excellent customer service and ensuring a positive experience from the consultation through the completion of the project. We provide services that can take your project from conception, including space planning, design, interior design, architectural drafting, engineering, permit ready plans, 3D walk through, obtaining permits, all the way through construction and completion. We are flexible in our approach, and can also provide design-only as well as construction-only services to suit your needs.
WHAT IS DESIGN-BUILD?
Design & Build combines all aspects of design services, construction services, and project management into one Design & Build team that works together to efficiently complete your project. We can budget the costs in the concept phase. 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 designers with a background in building are the best designers.
THE ADVANTAGE OF DESIGN-BUILD
Quality Work- Design & Build firms know not only what it will take to draw your project up on paper, but to build and finance your project as well. This building experience gives them a major advantage when planning your design, as they design your project to meet performance and budgetary needs, not just minimum design requirements. This innovative approach often results in developing projects even better than initially imagined. Furthermore, the construction goes more smoothly because the designer is able to think like a builder and anticipate and counter act potential problems, and the contractors and designers are working side by side, in constant communication.
Cost Savings- Design & Build firms also know 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 down the road.
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. Design Build firms 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.
