Design Build Construction

Keeping Your Project on Track with Design Build Remodeling

From designing and drawing blueprints to installing cabinetry and trim, Metke Remodeling & Luxury Homes handles the entire remodeling process. For our clients in Lake Oswego and the surrounding areas, that means every element of the home upgrade has Metke’s exclusive signature. Our in-house team of designers, craftspeople, and project managers work with homeowners to make remodeling visions a reality. But our reputation for excellence wasn’t built on a results-focused approach. We believe that creating dream homes in the most coveted neighborhoods in Lake Oswego and West Linn requires a remodeling contractor whose navigation skills as just as sharp as their arrival time. In other words, the strategy during the beginning stages has a significant impact on the final product. But why is the design-build delivery system preferred by property owners and remodelers alike?


The Design Build Difference

The design-build process is a construction method that developed as an alternative to the traditional, fragmented approach (design-bid-build and multi-prime). It integrates otherwise disparate teams, fostering efficient teamwork and benefiting the property owner by allowing them to determine the building performance standards and maintain timely and cost-efficient processes. Designers, carpenters, contractors, and project managers work collaboratively through the remodel process, making it easier to meet budgets, avoid changes, and maintain transparency. In essence, design-build minimizes risks related to labor and material costs, scheduling, and miscommunications across teams.


General Contractors versus Design Build Firms

It’s important to distinguish between what a general contractor and a design-build firm offer. General contractors do just that – contract. Plans and designs typically come from outside sources, often chosen by the homeowner. And without collaboration between the designer and contractor, errors and timeline setbacks can threaten prescribed budgets. Visit our blog to learn more about the advantages of hiring a design-build firm. Advantages for the homeowner:

  • Single Contract Between Owner and Design Build Firm
  • Clear and Accurate Costs and Timelines
  • Fewer Delays
  • Streamlined Productivity
  • Budget-Focused
  • Consistent Goals Across Teams
