You will be working under a single contract for design and construction services. With one firm to handle the project, there will be fewer administrative responsibilities and risks on the part of the homeowner or project owner. We have an in-house team to ensure the projects are completed efficiently and timely. Such collaboration can also lead to faster delivery, cost savings, and fewer chances of costly construction changes and unexpected fees.
Sensible Builders will handle the required permits for the project. We will also handle revisions to permit if significant changes are needed to the design.
Sensible Builders is very hands-on with all of our projects. It starts with an on-site consultation. During this time, we can also provide an estimate. We will then craft a design and budget plan. With our company, you can ensure a focused approach as we handle no more than 2 to 3 projects at a time.
It will be determined in the contract prior to the execution of the project. Where owner-directed changes result in overruns, the project owner will be responsible. For overruns that are not the result of the owner-directed change, the company will take responsibility within the scope of the contract.
If you want your project to be prioritized and completed quickly, a design-build team can work for you. The firm and owner should be able to agree upon technical requirements prior to the design and construction. Projects that cannot be clearly defined from the start or need several inputs and decision-making for the owner throughout the process may not be suitable for design-build.
