Our Design/Build Process
You can prepare for a positive experience
Initial Discovery Meeting
When we’re getting to know you, we learn about your lifestyle and “wish list” for your new design. We study the location and come up with solutions so your house can best fit for you and your family. Here’s what we do:
- Survey, photograph, and document project site and/or existing house condition
- Investigate zoning requirements
- Examine site parameters, possibilities, and limitations
- Begin a preliminary budget
Designing your dream
AV Architects designs are as unique as our clients. We start all design process from scratch and customize everything to our clients’ lifestyles. Your home will be “one of a kind” just for you and will never be re-used for any other client. Within the Concept and Design Phase, we explore all possibilities.
Phase 2 – Design Development
Once you approve the final design, we originate Design Development documents. These working papers illustrate and describe in detail all facets of the project. These include plans, sections, elevations and typical construction details are produced to establish the scope, relationships, forms, size and appearance of the project.
Phase 3 – Construction Cost
AV Architects provides a preliminary construction cost for the project. Since just about every detail is covered in the previous phases, a construction budget can be determined very precisely, rather than simply estimated.
The construction documents are also generated, which include:
- Project construction requirements
- Detailed drawings and specifications to establish the quality of materials and systems used throughout the entire project
Building your dream
As part of our complete service, AV Builders takes care of all the details:
- All necessary building permits
- Prepare the site for construction
Phase 2 – Permitting Process
At AV Builders, we recognize that our workplace is your home. We’ll establish a construction calendar, taking your schedule and preferences into account. We realize that you may be living in your home while we’re working on it and we go to great lengths to make your remodel as comfortable for you as possible.
Our architects actually lead the construction itself, assuring that the quality of your design is maintained.
At AV Builders, we’re happy when you’re happy. We walk each client through the finished product, noting any necessary repairs or refinements. And we work hard in every phase of design and construction just to hear those three gratifying words: “I love it!”
We want to ensure you are satisfied with our services. We do everything to ensure that you come in to your home ready to enjoy “Vacation Style Living“.With closing your project, an executive home builder in our team will:
