design/build program utilizes the experience of our in-house
architect and our 30 years of remodeling experience to
provide a seamless process for our customers that need both
home design and construction. This concept promotes a team approach
between us, working together to create a project that meets
your needs as well as fits your budget. Efficiency for the
entire project is condensed, providing maximum accountability
for design details, cost management, and scheduling. Here is
how it works......
Give us a call..... This
simple step puts you in good hands right away contact
us. One of our estimators will discuss your
project and basically get acquainted with you on the phone. We
ask you about your “wish list”, expectations, budget, and time
frames. We answer questions about our Company and how our
program works. We mutually agree to take the next step......
Complimentary consultation..... Our estimator
will set up a time to meet you at your house to further
discuss your “wish list” and review the existing conditions of
your property. We will take some photos and rough
measurements. We may even discuss a few “reality check ball
park costs” for doing the work. The goal of this meeting is to
gather enough information to prepare ........
Preliminary specifications..... and a realistic
budget guideline will be presented to you in a written format
via mail, e-mail, or personal presentation. Once you approve
this information, we will enter in to a construction agreement
and move forward with preliminary design. If your project is
too undefined or there are too many unknowns or options to
address, we may need to enter into our.......
Feasibility design phase..... which authorizes
our architect to do some basic discovery and space planning so
you can see what your options are and how the new spaces could
work for you. These options are then critiqued for budget. We
typically will know fairly quickly which option best fits your
needs and your budget. The feasibility design phase limits
your financial exposure to a minimal cost if you elect to not
move forward on your project. If you do move forward, these
dollars and efforts are rolled into.......
Preliminary design..... continues once you are
comfortable with the general budget and scope of work.
Discovery of existing conditons, property setbacks, easements,
and structural concerns take place. We will create as-built
drawings showing your current spaces as well as plan-view
drawings showing how your new and remodeled areas work
together. If the exterior of your home is impacted, elevation
drawings will be produced. We want you to see how your project
will look and function for you. Our estimators will provide
value engineering for the design as it evolves. We want to
give you the best value we can for the dollars you have to
spend. This allows us to continue with......
Working drawings..... are prepared with all the
necessary structual notes and details. Our architect submits
the drawings to the building department and secures the
necessary permits. While the working drawings are being
prepared, we are addressing......
details..... You are introduced to our production
coordinator and project foreman. Scheduling and security
issues are addressed. Our production team will assist you with
finishes selections, utilizing our network of showrooms and
suppliers. We want you to see and feel the products that are
available so you can make the best choices for you and your
budget. Long lead items are ordered so they will be available
when needed. It is now time for.....
Construction..... Our production team is
focused on making this process as easy on you as possible. We
will protect your existing finishes and isolate the
construction area from the rest of your house. Our project
foreman will be on the job daily from start to finish. He will
coordinate with our team of subcontactors and suppliers to
keep your project going smoothly. You will be kept apprised of
project costs with regular budget updates. Our goal is to get
you back in your new space as quickly as possible. As
contruction comes to an end.......
out..... We walk through the completed remodeling project together to make sure
all details meet your satisfaction. All permits are signed off
and we turn over the completed project to you. From here on
Warranty..... kicks in. Our two year
unconditional warranty guarantees your continued satisfaction.
We typically service our projects beyond this time frame and
also assist in dealing with the extended limited warranties
provided by material suppliers and subcontractors. You will
Enjoy your new space, knowing it
was well constructed by the Johnson Brothers Construction
design/build team and that you have added value to your
property, no matter where it is located in the Seattle area.
"We are extremely pleased with every aspect of this project. All of the Johnson Bros employees and subs were polite, professional and very competent. They worked so hard on the project from beginning to end. In addition to dealing with the challenge of working with an old house, they were always willing to listen to our ideas and do their best to incorporate them."-- B.B., Seattle, WA
