Our Design-Build Approach
How It Works
Design-Build is, without a doubt, the best approach to new home construction. It is a collaborative approach bringing you (the client), your builder and your design team together at the very beginning; before an architect begins drawing and sometimes even before you’ve chosen the land to build on. The Design-Build approach explores your desires, needs, and budget first. It holds everyone accountable for meeting your design objectives and doing so within the budget you have set.
Over the years we have seen many beautiful projects never built because the builder was brought on board after the design was done, only to find out it was way over the client’s budget, or on large remodels, only to find there was structural issues the designers overlooked making it impossible to build as designed or too expensive. Having 32 years in constructing exceptional projects, we bring a depth of knowledge to the table unsurpassed by our competition.
We estimate construction every day and are up to date with current costs for various methods and finishes. We build every day encountering a myriad of construction methods, old and new. Additionally, we also remodel, seeing firsthand what works well and what fails over time. We are routinely involved in continuing education, studying modern building science and are well versed in best building practices. Because of our experience and education, we offer “value engineering” to the design team – If we can see a better way to build it and reduce cost, it will most likely be incorporated into your design.
What It Means For You
Design Build is for busy professionals and parents who have little time for anything else. It is for those who will entrust the design and building of their dream home or renovation project to veteran professionals. The last thing you want are “issues” or “problems” to deal with during the process. We have systems in place covering every aspect of the process, from selections to cost estimating to scheduling. We take care of the details, so you don’t have to. That is the Stockell difference.
The keys to a successful project are: great communication, creativity, experience and organization. These make the building and remodeling process less stressful and more enjoyable. And it should be enjoyable, fun and exciting to watch your dreams become a reality.
Our mission is to exceed customer expectations, make the whole process enjoyable, and continually raise the standard of excellence in every home we build or renovate.
