FREQUENTLY-ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT DESIGN-BUILD CONTRACTS
What is a design-build contract and why do I need one?
If you are considering a larger remodel project, such as a kitchen, bath, or addition, a design-build contract is the place to start. A design-build contract will help you from the moment that you dream about a remodeling project all the way through the design process to the final construction of your project.
Why do I need a design contract?
The construction plans developed in the design phase are what allows us to accurately understand and price your project. We will understand exactly what you want, which allows us to present you with a detailed, comprehensive proposal to complete your project, which includes an accurate project cost. We do not bid on speculation, which other contractors will quickly offer you. We discuss your project with our trade partners, and when we know what the real costs are, we confidently stand behind our price to you.
Your alternative is to hire an architect and a designer to create your project, put the details together, and then deliver that information to several general contractors for a proposal. Often when you receive your proposals, you find they are either overbudget or not exactly what you wanted. You then must go back to the architect and designer to redo or revise your project and the details so that they can put it out to bid again. Five Point’s design-build process simplifies all of that by having one company from your initial idea to your completed project.
What are the steps of a design-build?
The first step of a design-build contract is the design phase. Five Point Renovation and Remodel will have an initial consultation with you to discuss in detail your needs and wants. We will then meet with you, along with our architect or draftsperson, onsite for an “as-build” meeting.
After our site meeting with you, Five Point will create a set of preliminary drawings for your project for you to review. We allow for one redraw of the project. When you are happy with the design of your project drawings, we will provide you with final construction plans – a full-size paper copy and an electronic .pdf version.
What does a design contract cost?
The cost of a design contract varies depending on the size and complexity of the project. After our first consultation, we can provide a ballpark estimate of the design fee. If you decide to move forward with the design contract, we will provide you with a contract, which includes the scope of work as well as a price for the design phase.
What is the “Build” part of a Design-Build?
When you are satisfied with the newly-designed construction plans for your project, we will take those plans to each of our trade partners and get actual bids to complete the project. This allows us to provide you with a detailed proposal for the job, including a proposal price. This price is not a “ballpark” number or an estimate – it is the cost of the project unless you decide to make changes (which we are happy to do!).
After reviewing our proposal for your project, if you choose Five Point to complete your project, your design contract fee will be completely refunded to you by applying it to the first draw payment of your build contract.
