Every design-build starts with a dialogue

A Noblit-Didier design-build project starts with a discussion of your wants and needs. We use a thorough Q&A process to make sure we understand your style specific requests and budget. But the conversation doesn’t end there. It’s ongoing, through live conversations with John or Rick – and through an online tool called BuilderTrend that gives you a clear view into your project at any given moment.

BuilderTrend

logoBuilderTRENDWhenever you want to check on the status of your project, our exclusive BuilderTrend tool will provide you with a detailed view of our progress, including change requests, photos, weather reports and more. This has provided a better building experience for homeowners.  You’ll have access to photos, costs, and your personal selections from wherever you are:  the office, the carpool line or even on vacation.

Designing Your Project

Step 1

Initial Consultation: Our Q&A process will guide a discussion of your needs, priorities, project budget scope and timeline.

Step 2

Initial Design Phase: This part of the process includes measuring your space, creating layout(s), visiting suppliers to select materials, presenting our drawings and revising as needed until we all feel good about where we are headed.

Step 3

Construction Agreement: We’ll create a Construction Agreement containing all of the detailed information from the design.

Step 4

Pre-Construction Meeting: Before we lift the first hammer, we’ll meet one last time to review details and schedule a start date.
