When you decide to build a new home, you may ask yourself if the architect should come first or your builder.  Embarking on a new construction project is an exciting journey, but it comes with its fair share of complexities. The success of your dream home hinges on the seamless collaboration between your builder and architect. At SG Home Builders, we understand the pivotal role this relationship plays, which is why we prioritize open communication, realistic timelines, and transparent budgeting at every stage of the process.

Open Discussions on Design and Layout Changes

One of the keys to a successful project lies in the ability to adapt and refine the initial plans. By fostering open discussions between our builders and architects, we ensure that any necessary framing design adjustments or layout changes are identified and addressed early on. This proactive approach minimizes surprises during construction, resulting in a smoother and more efficient building process.

Realistic Timelines

A well-defined timeline is the backbone of any construction project. When the builder and architect work in tandem, they can collaborate to create a realistic schedule that aligns with the design goals. At SG Home Builders, we emphasize the importance of setting achievable milestones, taking into consideration the intricacies of both the design and construction phases. This approach leads to a more streamlined and on-time completion.

Transparent Budgeting with Every Plan Set Iteration

Budgeting is a critical aspect of any construction project. With our commitment to transparency, SG Home Builders ensures that clients receive an updated budget perspective with every iteration of the plan set development. This allows for informed decision-making and helps manage expectations. By keeping the budget in check throughout the design process, we eliminate costly surprises down the line.

The Pitfalls of Blindly Requesting Multiple Bids

While it may seem prudent to request multiple bids from builders, it can often lead to misunderstandings and delays, especially if the builder was not present during the design process. Without insight into the intricacies of the architectural plans, providing accurate bids becomes a challenge. This can result in a series of change orders and potential compromises on the project’s integrity. Collaborative planning from the outset ensures that builders are well-informed and equipped to provide accurate estimates.

The success of your dream home hinges on the partnership between your builder and architect. At SG Home Builders, we recognize the critical importance of this relationship and prioritize open discussions, realistic timelines, and transparent budgeting. By fostering a collaborative approach from the beginning, we ensure that your project unfolds smoothly, without unnecessary surprises or delays.
