Design Build

The steps to building a custom home can be tedious, overwhelming, and expensive as people often use different companies for different parts of the job. This can cause problems with scheduling, overlapping, and increase costs.

At Highbridge Construction we utilize a process referred to as Design-Build. This process allows you, the homeowner to deal with one company, the Design-Builder. We have an in-house team of skilled architects, designers, project managers and contractors. The Design-Build process allows us to take care of everything from beginning to end to ensure a smooth and seamless delivery.

Our concept of design build is founded on the following:

Continuity

You will work with a single company from the inception of the project to cutting the ribbon.  You will become familiar with the lead person who will coordinate all the professionals and workers and keep you fully advised as things progress. 

We use a cloud-based construction management software.  We have found this results in better communication among all the parties and a more efficient operation.

Cooperation

A design build creates a team.  You won’t need to worry about one type of contractor becoming at odds with another or conflicts in scheduling.  Through mutual cooperation each skill set will collaborate and share pertinent information.  They share a common goal of presenting you with the best final product possible. 

Price

The budget is one of the most critical elements of a remodel.  Our firm has over 30 years’ experience in the field and in Ottawa.  We are able to work within your financial directives and give you the best value for your money.  Our goal is to create the improvements that will render the greatest benefit while remaining within your price range.

Efficiency

Because our system is more efficient, our projects generally are completed within or earlier than the estimated timeframe.  Because we are a single firm, we know the contractors’ availability and schedule in order to provide a sufficient lead time to meet your start date.  As the work progresses we are able to maintain scheduling and offer an orderly project.

Despite the best planning, questions or issues arise during the project.  Using our in-house team means a quick response, rather than re-calling the architect or designer and waiting on a return message.  Our engineers carefully monitor the workmanship and maintain good working relations with City inspectors.

 

Single Purpose

Design build means we specialize in this service.  We are not interested in selling real estate or flipping houses.  Our goal is to work with Ottawa families to employ our systems and processes and make an older home renovation a real possibility.  Our professionals are consistent in their quality.
