Why Design-Build?

With Design-Build, there’s no handoff between design and construction companies during your remodel. Our experienced, award-winning team handles your entire renovation project from beginning to end, so you don’t have to worry about disagreements between parties and finger pointing.

We know that when there’s “synergy” between the design and construction phases, you get beautifully designed, off-the-charts remodeling experiences. It’s literally why we named our company “Synergy”.

We are thrilled with our ‘new house’ and want to thank the Synergy team for bringing our vision to life!’

About Design-Build

Design-Build is a recognized industry standard that takes a holistic approach to home remodeling. The same firm that designs your renovation also builds it. This approach solves a frequent challenge for homeowners of how to find and select a designer, a builder and tradespeople separately. Since one company is responsible for both design and construction, you only need to select one firm to oversee your project from start to finish.

There are plenty of advantages of a Design-Build approach—but above all else you benefit from the synergy and consistency of service that comes from working directly with the one firm that both designs and builds your project.

Benefits of Design-Build

A Strong Working Relationship with Professional Guides

The Design-Build process allows us to get to know each other early on in the process and we’re at your side throughout both the design and construction phases. In our first meeting we gain an understanding of the direction you want to go with your home remodel so we can manage both the big picture and the details. As a result, you end up with what you want without having to worry about the overwhelming number of details involved in getting there. Starting a strong working relationship early ensures you’re comfortable throughout both phases of your project and allows us to work together seamlessly.

Understanding Costs

After we get a solid sense of your vision and goals, we have you set an investment goal very early on in the process. Doing so allows us to avoid the disappointment of developing a design and providing a cost estimate, only to find out that the project is well beyond what you’re comfortable spending. Our experienced team visits your home with our trade partners, evaluates the space, anticipates any challenges and refines the cost of your project so there’s little chance of surprises once construction begins. This set budget becomes our guide for the entire project.

Time & Cost Savings

Using a design-build method reduces total project costs and time. Our entire team works together and your remodel is professionally project managed along the way to ensure your project’s budget and timeline are honored. No “wasn’t expecting that” moments for you, predictable results for us!

Single Source Accountability

You direct one instead of many. Working with one company that assumes accountability and stands behind its work is not only convenient, it provides consistency. When the right hand knows what the left hand is doing, there are less misunderstood intentions, lower construction costs, no messy hand-offs and the entire process takes less time.

Continuity & Seamless Transition from Design to Construction

When working with a Design-Build firm that is involved from start to finish, the chance for things falling through the cracks is greatly diminished. Work becomes more efficient and there’s greater continuity between the vision of the design and the realities of construction. With no hand-off between different companies, the transition is seamless.
