Our Process design + build

Building Better Homes

At ZMC Design + Build, we believe that exceptional Residential buildings start with innovative design

Step 1: Consultation

We’ll begin the process by scheduling a consultation for you to share your ideas for your ideal living space, including number of bedrooms and bathrooms, design style, color palettes and more. Then, using this input, we’ll determine the design cost and have plans drawn up by a draftsman or architect.

Step 2: Design

In order for ZMC Design + Build to bring the vision of your dream home to reality, we need to understand your preferences and needs. This will help us combine form and function into a gorgeous design sure to please you and your family for generations to come.

This is where your floor plan comes to life, which is why we’ll take great care in sitting down with you to review the plan, get your feedback, and make any necessary adjustments you may have.

Step 3: Budget

Once we’ve created a plan that matches your vision, we’ll provide a detailed estimate of the project costs.

Our design build estimates are extremely detailed with a budgeted amount for every item going into your project. We meet with our customers frequently to review individual budgets and any additional costs for upgrades. It’s important to us to be upfront about costs to ensure our customers stay within their budget.

Step 4: Agreement

After establishing a suitable budget, it’s time to commit to the building process.  We will sit down and review the scope of work and expectations to confirm a clear understanding of our building agreement.  We want you to feel completely comfortable with the process and excited to get the project rolling!

Step 5: Permits

Almost all of our work requires a permit as it involves changes to the structure of the home, a large-scale renovation, or a newly-built structure, but you can rest assured that this is to protect you. Should a contractor offer to make any structural, electrical, plumbing, windows, doors, or roofing changes without a permit, this is an immediate red flag. It leaves you vulnerable when you sell your home and could end up costing you double. It is best to partner with a company like ZMC Design + Build that will follow all required permits to ensure you are protected and able to maximize your investment.

Step 6: Selections

Choosing the perfect selections to fit your home is a crucial aspect of the building or remodeling process. These details can make or break the style of the home. Fortunately, ZMC Design + Build has simplified the selection process.  We partner with interior designers and use an online platform to select specific items like fixtures, flooring, cabinetry, and doors for your home, manage home improvements, and keep close tabs on the budget.

Step 7: Building

We take a collaborative approach to building that ensures you’re updated with what’s going on in every step of the construction process. With your insight, our team will be able to deliver your project in an efficient manner with superior craftsmanship.

From the very beginning of the construction process until the very end, we will ensure that we keep a clean and safe environment for your family and all who will be working on your project. We understand the special circumstances that go into a home remodel or addition and that your family may be living in the construction site, so we take extra precautions to ensure you are safe and the home is clean at the end of each day.

We are also committed to clear communication between the homeowner and the builder and utilize various forms of communication, including face to face, email, phone conversations, texting, and the use of our online software, Co-Construct. This is because we prefer to take the “No Surprise” approach and communicate any changes to the budget or project on a daily/weekly basis.

Step 8: Warranty

As much as we plan to avoid construction issues of all shapes and sizes, we also want to assure you that we will be here to help in the event that an unexpected problem does arise. You can settle in your new living space free of worry, and we get the opportunity to demonstrate that we stand behind the quality of our workmanship.
