If you want to do a major remodel or addition to your house, or even
want to build a custom home, but have no idea where to start or
whether the project would be feasible with your budget, a feasibility
study is a small investment that will allow you to make wise decisions
and not waste time and money on something that can never be done.
V.O. Design-Build will provide an initial consultation without charge to
determine whether a feasibility study is the right first step for your
Architectural Design Services
V.O. Design-Build uses cutting-edge software to provide clients with
clear and understandable plans and 3D color renderings without
loosing the power of free-hand sketching to explore various ideas
throughout the design process. Homeowners enjoy fully visualizing
their new home from interior and exterior views before a hammer is
If you have not selected a site for your new home, V.O. can use its
wealth of resources to help you evaluate and select the ideal site for
you. If you have already selected a site and are ready for design, we
will provide cost estimating at the very early stages of the design
process until we arrive at a fixed construction cost and a fully
documented design. In cases where time is a major concern, we focus
the production of plans to a level of detail required to submit for
permit, and the final stages of design can take place while the building
department reviews the plans in preparation to issue a permit.
DesignBuild is the simplest, most cost-efficient way to build. It
assures you of benefits you won’t find in the traditional bidding
process. Because V.O. Design-Build is owned and operated by an
architectural designer we offer our clients the additional in-house
expertise around design, engineering and planning that is critical to
keeping projects on time and budget while assuring that quality
materials and systems are in place.
- Cost savings. Leadership from the architect/ builder in both
design and construction ensures cost savings through the
prudent use of materials, cost-efficient construction and
reduced labor costs.
- Shortened schedule. Because the the architect/builder is
selected at the start of the design process, construction —
such as site preparation and foundation work — can take
place while more detailed designs are being completed.
- Hassle-free relationships. Because the owner,
architect/builder work together as a team and there is a single
point-of-contact and accountability the process is simplified
and provides better visibility for the owner.
DesignBuild is a turnkey approach in which you hire the
architect/builder to lead the entire design and construction process.
The architect/builder works hand-in-hand with you through the entire
project to ensure your project meets your design goals and budget
and provides a single point-of-contact to simplify the process.
In the traditional building process, no construction takes place until
the design and bidding process is complete, so you lose time and
add complexity. Design-Build allows construction to start while plans
are being finalized so you can get your project finished faster.
