Home sites on the City View side of The Ridges have a bird’s eye view of downtown Greenville SC and surrounding areas. The lake and iconic Bell Tower at Furman University are easily visible. And when the sun sets, the lights of downtown Greenville are aglow with the excitement and activity of a burgeoning city.
After building almost 200 homes in the Upstate of South Carolina, in all 7 Cliffs Communities, and in Western North Carolina, We have
found that these are some of the questions people have when beginning the design-build process.
We build in different communities and private land throughout the Upstate of South Carolina and Western North Carolina. While we are based in Greenville, SC; we have offices at Lake Keowee and Asheville, NC to better serve our clients.
Design-Build offers a better way to create your home with one team handling all aspects from concept, to design, building, selections, and after move in.
Single Source Responsibility:
With both design, construction, and interior design in the hands of a single team; the design-builder is responsible for the total outcome of your home. With design-build, the owner is able to focus on their needs rather than coordination between designer, builder, and interior designers.
The singularized responsibility inherent in design-build serves as a motivation for the team to deliver quality in a timely manner and implement with efficient performance.
Cost and Time Savings:
Design and construction personnel, working and communicating as a team, evaluate alternative materials and methods effectively and accurately. Value engineering and construct-ability are utilized continuously and more effectively when the designers, interior designers, and builders work as a team during the entire design process.
Reduced Administrative Burden:
During design and construction, the owner is not required to invest time and money in coordinating or arbitrating between separate professional firms, but rather is able to focus on timely decision making.
Early Knowledge of Construction Costs:
Construction costs are known far earlier than in other delivery systems. The entity responsible for design is simultaneously estimating construction costs and can accurately conceptualize the completed project.
Improved Risk Management:
Performance aspects of cost, schedule and quality are clearly defined and responsibilities/risks are appropriately balanced (individual risks are managed by the party best positioned to manage that risk). Change orders due to “errors and omissions” are virtually eliminated, because the design-builder had responsibility for developing drawings and specifications as well as constructing a fully-functioning facility.
Our full-time interior designer is involved in every step of the building process to ensure that your home fits your lifestyle. Through this process, she becomes familiar with your tastes, vision, and budget. With the combined knowledge of the plans and your tastes, she is able to guide you with making the right choices for your home.
We are turn-key. Our goal is to make the creation of your home enjoyable while achieving superior quality in all aspects of design, construction, and after move in.
We have great relationships with a variety of lenders. Once we know more about your needs we will help facilitate introduction to the best lenders for your home. Projects are typically paid for with draws for work already completed on your home and the lender inspects the house prior to issuing funding.
We build homes of various sizes, locations, materials, styles, and finish levels. All of our homes meet the highest quality standards.
We use lump sum contracts for our projects for homes under $2MM. This type of contract places the construction risk on the design-builder and reduces administrative cost and time for the owner.
Yes, we will build anywhere in the Upstate of SC or Western NC.
