Is Design + Build the Right Choice for Your New Home?

Designing your dream home is one of the most exciting – and challenging – decisions you’ll ever make.

When you’re making such a big emotional and financial investment, it’s crucial that the builder you choose does everything in their power to make the process as seamless as possible.

Choosing a builder that offers a Design + Build option could be the answer to a stress-free project. With Design + Build, one company takes care of everything, from the architectural designs to construction – giving you one point of contact and greater control along the way.

In this blog, we’ll break down the benefits of Design + Build, helping you decide if it’s the right process for your new home.

You’re in control

You’ve made the exciting decision to build your dream home – which means the finished project should reflect the exact design you had in mind. When you choose Design + Build, you have greater control than when purchasing a cookie-cutter home or working with a volume builder who may rely on set templates and materials.

With a Design + Build project, you will have the opportunity to talk to both the architect and builder before construction begins. This can save you valuable time and money, as the architect will bring their creative vision, while the builder will be able to give you an idea of costing and time frame. Working together, you will be able to create a home that meets your needs and design dreams while staying in budget.

Your builder is accountable

When you’re working with multiple companies on one project, it can be hard to know who is accountable. If you choose Design + Build, the answer is simple: your builder is the one to reach out to if you have any questions or concerns along the way.

At Nicon Built Design + Build, all work is fully guaranteed thanks to a 365-day maintenance period and a 7 year structural warranty backed by an industry compensation fund. All of this means you can rest easy, knowing your dream home is in safe hands.

Communication is easier

The logistics of organizing a separate architect and builder can be a nightmare – but when you choose Design + Build, there is no need for you to act as the middleman. Rather than passing along messages or organizing meetings, you can relax while the team works independently to bring your design vision to life.

Equally, you’ll have a set point of contact to reach out to for updates and any questions you may have. The builder and architect will be fully informed about each other’s work, meaning everyone is on the same page, every step of the way.

The process is smoother

When you choose Design + Build, you will be working with architects, designers and builders who already have an existing relationship. Years of working together on successful projects means they will be attuned to each other’s processes, creating greater ease of communication and a seamless finished product.
