Purchasing a Design/Build project is more like buying a car than a list of groceries. When you buy a car, the “base-price” includes everything you need to be able to drive it off the lot and operate it safely. You do not have separate prices for the engine, the rearview mirror, the windshield, etc. You may, however, select “packages” to upgrade the vehicle in a variety of ways – special rims, sound systems, leather trim, etc. We handle the design of our clients’ projects much the same way. If we’re developing a kitchen project we will come back to the client with a “base-price” for the kitchen – all the demolition, rubbish-removal, framing, plumbing, electrical work, HVAC work, insulation, sheetrock, flooring, cabinetry, countertops… (the list goes on and on) required to create a beautiful, functional kitchen that will meet the needs identified by the client during the Goals Assessment. Then, if our clients want to know, “How much more would it be if we wanted cherry cabinets instead of maple?” or “How much would we save if don’t replace the window?,” those options are priced out as Upgrades and/or Savings Options.
