Actual Client 3D Rendering

It all starts with a phone call, email, or message. We call this the Client Intake Portion. We try to keep this process simple quick and effective. We first gather all of the necessary information we can up front.  Names, address, contact information, project details and size.  Sometimes the client and us find out you need a different type of professional or trade contractor all together.  We have a huge list of trusted professionals we can recommend, so never be afraid to call us first! No matter what size the job is.

After we complete your new client intake  portion we will set up an On Site Visit.  During the on site visit we will discuss your project in detail. We try to keep this meeting to 1-1.5 hrs long. This is your time to discuss all of the dream ideas and visions you have had about the project, and this our time to listen, take notes and measurements, and to bounce questions back and forth with each other.  Ensuring we have the jest of the scope of work and level of detail you are looking for in your project.  While we are on site we will finish the meeting by discussing the project budget and work with you to see if the project is capable of being built for the projected project dollars. At this point, you have spent nothing and we do not want you to sign a full contract. This final phase of our On Site Visit is called the NO PRESSURE SALE Portion.

The next phase will be the Design/Estimate Portion.  You will be given time to think about our on site visit and decide if what was discussed is accurate and you have a good feeling about the project and its general budget.  We will talk with you or meet with you in the coming days to enter the Design/Estimate Portion. If we all agree to move forward with the project we will enter into a Feasibility/Design/Estimate Contract with an agreed price for designing the entire project.  This is where people have questions...but, the process is very simple to explain.  

 

At this point you will be given a price of designing and estimating the project to its entire 100% finish.  If you agree to the design fee.   We go to work on the design.  We take you shopping for product, we select all of your wanted materials and fixtures.  We pick out your cabinets and all of your finishing items. We then build you blueprints and floor plans followed up by 3D renderings with great detail and a fly through 3D movie of what the project will look like when it's finished.  You then get to come to the office and see your dream come alive in our meeting room as the design team walks you through all of the details. Plus you get to keep all of the designs, plans and renderings even if you decided you don't want us to build the project.  This process brings and a level of comfort for choosing Tipton Builders to spend your money with because you are not locked into a full contract to design and build the project, having put down a huge deposit that you may forfeit if you decide to not build.

Lastly after some back and forth with the design team, and a few design changes. We have reached the Final Proposal Portion.  Everyone has now agreed that the design is rock solid and that all the material and finishings are correct.  We have received all of our bids and estimates and are ready to present you with the final numbers to bring your project and dream to life.  You agree that the number we have presented is fair and you want us to build the project. The design money you have paid is reduced from the final project bill and we are now ready to begin setting your project in motion. We are now at the Begin Construction Portion. Too easy! No pressure! Clear details and communication and confidence have brought us all to this exciting point in your project and you have only spent a small amount of money to ensure you are going to get the best and highest quality build possible.
