Advantages of the Design-Build Process
During the custom home design phase Christopher Developments works collaboratively with your chosen designer or architect providing professional insight that will ultimately enhance your custom home.
If you are in the beginning stages of the custom build process and haven’t chosen a designer or architect, consider the proven advantages of Christopher Developments Design-Build service. Very few custom home builders offer these skills.
Single source of accountability – Our design-build approach provides a single source for your entire project. In the traditional design-bid-build method of custom home building the owner must select an architect/designer, finalize the design, and then try to find a builder not knowing if their home will come in on budget. Christopher Developments design-build method fosters teamwork and lends itself to cooperation. The relationship we build during the design phase helps to ensure that the stage is set for a successful construction project.
Budget management – Discussing budget during the design phase helps to keep the project within a realistic budget. Communicating the cost implications of design decisions ensures that you play a key role in arriving at the final price.
Enhanced communication – Specific design and construction details are developed throughout the entire process and the focus stays on owner “value”. The communication benefits of working with a design professional and a construction expert at the same time ensures that potential problems are discovered before the project starts.
Faster project completion – Design build projects can be completed in a shorter amount of time because the bid time is reduced and scheduling for the project can begin before design is finalized, potential construction problems are uncovered early in the process.
Quality Control – Christopher Developments custom home design-build system removes ambiguity that may arise in material and construction specifications. We coordinate with other professionals, ensuring the focus remains on protecting your interest and building the home of your dreams.
