What is Design-Build?

So, you’ve decided you’re ready to remodel your home. You’re about to embark on an exciting journey. One of the first decisions you’ll need to make is who to hire to complete the project.

Hiring a Design-Build Remodeler vs. a New Jersey General Contractor

Choosing an award-winning design-build remodeler is the most important decision you’ll make during the renovation process.

The design-build process creates one unified team within the company who handle everything from design to- you guessed it building. This eliminates the need to coordinate multiple teams, which decreases the chance for miscommunications or budget overages. 

With a general contractor, all work besides the building aspect is subcontracted to various vendors. Though this process usually brings a successful result, as well, the likelihood of miscommunications, budget overages, misunderstanding of homeowners needs, wants, and input is far greater than when working with a design-build team. As they say, sometimes there are “too many cooks in the kitchen”. Or bathroom, or any other room of your home you’re looking to remodel.

At JMC, our five step design-build process means we work with you from start to finish. This method simplifies the project planning stages and ensures you can sit back and maximize the benefits of your new space.

Thoughtful Design

Since a design-build firm is home to both construction and design, the team is able to foresee potential issues before they occur. This is important as it ensures that your design can be done within budget, and also safeguards that your design is structurally sound.
