Our homes are equipped with a controlled fresh air supply system that takes air from the outdoor, gets filtered and mixed with the homes interior air keeping it fresh and healthy.
During the construction process we select durable products that will not rot, produce low emission, and are sensible to the environment extending the life of you home, and reducing ongoing maintenance expenses.
Once we are comfortable with the final numbers of the soft estimate, we will then move to final plan design. Once the architectural plans are completed, we will then design the HVAC system which is an integral part of of high performance home, and if need to complete a full set of structural drawings.
During this process we will engage certain key trades to get feedback on component selections to further value engineer the home if need to.
Once all plans are develop, we will move to our bidding stage. We will send plans and specification to our vendors, suppliers and subcontractors of each trade and division in order to have the best competitive price from qualify tradesman.
Before releasing the purchase orders we will review final budget with home owners, and upon approval start buying down the job and get under construction.
We will handle all necessary permitting and meeting with local issuing authorities as well.
