integrating information, and executing the work professionally. Because we are both designers and constructors, we provide integrated efficiencies within our process. Our design work is undertaken with practical construction knowledge, and our construction work is done with an awareness of the design intent.
Novell works with you to design your envisioned project through concept and development, to construction and permit drawings, with review and approval milestones in between. Internally we will regularly review the drawings for constructability issues, avoiding complications later.
Approximately halfway through design, we will produce a detailed Budget Estimate, so that the design can be further developed and evaluated alongside realistic metrics. Once drawings are complete and submitted for building permit review, we perform our final pricing, a detailed scope of work and Contract Estimate for your review and consideration. Once approved, this becomes our stipulated sum cost of construction.
Once construction begins, the benefits of a Design-Build arrangement really pay off. We already understand the intent behind the project, have worked through a number of building issues, and can now effectively implement the designed project. During all of construction, we believe in strong communication and regular discussion. Here is where we are able to shine with our professional and ethical approach. Everything is tracked in writing, and only change orders that are approved by you, adjust the cost of construction.
