DESIGN BUILD FIRM 

COMPLETE CUSTOM SERVICES

Custom home construction and renovations are complicated processes involving many moving parts and details that need to come together perfectly to ensure the best outcome. So it only makes sense when undertaking a project of this scope to delegate a single point of contact, communication, and accountability who can oversee all these different details and components to ensure optimal results.

This is the essence of the design-build concept, and at K. Fedewa Builders, we have the industry experience, knowledge, and network of invaluable partners and contacts to excel at it.

Compared to the traditional project management models, the efficiency of the design-build process offers many advantages.

Here are some of the proven benefits of hiring a single contractor with design-build expertise to coordinate and oversee your whole project from start to finish.

SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT

ENHANCED BUDGET MANAGEMENT

QUALITY OF COMMUNICATION

SEAMLESS QUALITY CONTROL

A single point of contact results in a better degree of teamwork and cooperation. By eliminating the need to invest time and effort coordinating between a different contractor for each individual task and the owner, the design build method ensures that all parties are on the same page from the beginning of the project.

By first defining a budget framework, then sourcing contractors who can work within it, rather than waiting for bids to come in from multiple suppliers, skyrocketing estimates and fees can be minimized. The result is a more accurate idea of the final tab and a better handle on expenses throughout each phase.

By working with the same person to finalize design and construction details, potential issues are usually identified and addressed before the project even starts. In addition, due to time saved on the bidding and scheduling processes, the duration and complexity of the whole project can often be shortened and simplified.

By minimizing the likelihood of any misunderstanding related to material and construction specs, the focus remains on ensuring the quality of the work and staying true to the owner's vision as defined at the outset of the project. This also allows us to keep you updated on any quality issues that may arise during each phase.
