We offer a total package called Design-Build services
What are “Design-Build Services”? Sierra Remodeling & Home Builders offers a popular service called Design-Build. Design-Build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the Sierra Remodeling design-build team – works under a single contract with you the homeowner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion – thereby integrating the roles of design and construction.
Design-Build is an alternative to the traditional Design-Bid-Build project delivery method. Under the latter approach, design and construction services are split into separate entities, separate contracts, separate work.
Design-Build vs. Design-Bid-Build process
Benefits of Design-Build
Design-Build offers many unique benefits and advantages that other construction methods simply don’t deliver. It’s why Sierra Remodeling & Home Builders decided to offer this service to its customers. Some of the biggest benefits of Design-Build are rapid delivery, a smooth process, better solutions, better value and better communication.
Design-Build offers rapid delivery because both design and construction are being planned at the same time. Additionally, our Sierra Remodeling showroom enables us to select your exact products and materials while designing them into your new home. Also, there is only one selection phase instead of two (refer to the above diagram). The Design-Build delivery method turns otherwise impossible timeframes into reality.
Time and again, Design-Build reliably equates to headaches eliminated, teams collaborating and homeowners pleased. The single-source responsibility afforded by Design-Build means there’s no conflicting recommendations from contractor and architect. Instead, one entity has total accountability for any and all construction and design elements. You know where the buck stops, and the way is paved for a smooth homeowner experience.
Better solutions and better value
In Design-Build, there’s no need to limit solutions to traditional ideas. The job is the boss. So teams are only limited by what’s right for the job. As ideas come to the table, teams work as one unit to analyze them, in full transparency, so homeowners are assured of getting the best materials, siting, schedule, design and more. This innovative process makes it possible for homeowners to see more options, make better-informed decisions and realize a better value.
Better communication and fewer problems
Delivering a successful Design-Build project requires open collaboration between all team members. Creating a team-oriented approach promotes high levels of communication and transparency, both imperative to the success of any project. It allows homeowners to share their vision with the team, both designer and builder, at the same time. The team-oriented approach also provides the collaborative effort necessary to evaluate the project’s objectives, assess schedules and analyze opportunities as the project progresses. As a team, no other group is better qualified to align the homeowner’s vision with the project’s goals and objectives.
Design-Build facilitates it. All team members stay on the same page because everyone is working under one contract. And homeowners are kept up to date by a set contact from the Design-Builder. As a result, Design-Build is well suited for the most complex jobs, simplifying them so homeowners realize better quality and receive litigation-free builds.
Design-Build cost savings
Due to its efficiency, Design-Build often reduces construction costs for homeowners. This may come as a surprise, given that Design-Build projects lack the hard-dollar bid phase that general contracting affords. But building smart with Design-Build pays dividends, reducing both real (accounting) costs and opportunity costs.

Thank you for the excellent work you have performed on re-constructing my burned out house. The caliber of work is superior and the house is better than it ever was. I am very pleased with the final results. It was always a pleasure to work with the staff at your company. As the contractor Scott Miller saw that every detail was worked out. His partner, Jeremy, was personable and very easy to work with. I can’t remember all the people who worked on the house but please extend my thanks for a job well done to Mary, Poncho, Steve, Debra, and all the others.
Thank you for e-mailing the warranty information and for the invoice. Payment is enclosed.
Feel free to contact me if there are any other papers or other loose ends that need to be completed.
Wishing your company every success in the future.
