Revolutionizing the Design-Build Process in 4 Easy Steps
Phase 1: Square Foot Analysis
During this phase, we ensure the feasibility of your project. The square foot analysis generates a budget that you can take to the bank for pre-approval. Most importantly, this gives you and the bank an idea of what the project is going to cost. This allows you to be confident that you can build your desired structure while staying in your desired budget. The best part, this step is free! Before starting the job, we answer two questions for you:
Is your site suitable for the desired structure?
- Zoning regulations
- Land use designation
- Utility costs
- Historical records
What is your structure going to cost?
- Detailed per-square-foot cost budget
- Land evaluation costs
- Evaluation of future growth costs
Phase 2: The Design-Build Construction Agreement
This step answers the question: Is this project going to appraise? Your bank is going to ask for an appraisal quality set of drawings to ensure that the loan will go through. Hammers Construction, Inc., produces this set, consisting of a site plan, floor plan, and elevations of your building, without breaking the bank.
Your construction agreement will include:
- Cost Breakdown
- Site plan
- Floor plan
Phase 3: The Service Agreement
When your project requires a more detailed bid and customized services, the service agreement will provide you with the specific, accurate details, reports and numbers you need. We work with you to determine the services your unique project will need before we begin the project. This way, we stay completely transparent and open with you and your project stays within your budget.
The next thing the bank will want is a permit set of drawings and a construction agreement. The service agreement produces a full permit ready set of drawings, which includes all engineering and produces a hard bid construction contract.
Your Service Agreement may include:
- Soils reports
- Phase 1 requirements
- Zoning requirements
- Site replatting
- Drainage report and plan
- Traffic studies
- Final Landscape Plan
- Full set of building specifications
- Contract for Construction
