As a Homeowner you understandably take pride in your home. Like any other structure, homes become outdated and need to be updated, require routine maintenance or need repairs due to damage from a host of different causes.
Each homeowner has their own unique design needs/goals that will be determined by personal preference, budget, space requirements and many other factors.
In order to meet these needs/goals, a Homeowner will often need to retain various design and engineering consultants. G&M offers a complete range of professional services.
The following are just a few ways G&M’s experience and unique services can save Homeowners TIME and MONEY.
1. Extensive Technical Knowledge and Experience
2. Understanding the Approval Process
3. Combined Services = Cost Effectiveness
4. Construction Management
5. "Design-Build" - A Creative Way to Save Money
First and foremost, G&M has extensive technical knowledge and experience in resolving design and engineering related issues associated with residential facilities. G&M’s expertise and capabilities range from simple remodeling projects to complex, multi-story, custom homes and apartments. G&M offers a complete range of professional design services that can assist the Homeowner.
Many Homeowners may be unfamiliar with new the building codes and the permit approval process. The permit approval process can be complicated even for simple projects due to local jurisdictional requirements. Large construction projects can be VERY complicated!
Navigating through this complex process is an important part of G&M’sservices. By providing effective research, design and engineering services, G&M eliminates much of the COST, RISK and FRUSTRATION associated with the approval process.
Because of the complexity of the design and permitting process, G&M has created separate documents to assist our Clients in understanding how it works.
Most projects require a combination of design and engineering services such as Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Structural Design and Land Use Planning. Each of these can have a significant impact on the project. Failure to account for one or more of these services can result in wasted time and unnecessary re-design fees.
One of the greatest values that G&M provides to Homeowners is our expertise in a large range of professional services. Our ability to provide combined services is both convenient and cost effective. G&M also increases design speed and efficiency by providing a “cross trained” staff, which allows our employees to combine Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Structural and Land Use issues in one meeting. The Homeowner does not need to pay for multiple consultants! This greatly reduces the overall design costs.
Homeowners want the best quality design and construction at the least possible price. In order to achieve these results, a Homeowner needs to spend a lot of time and effort to select the appropriate design and construction professionals. Significant management time and effort is also required during the design and construction phases. It has been G&M’s experience that many Homeowners do not have the desire, time or expertise to provide the management required to obtain a quality project at the best possible price.
G&M provides simple and cost-effective construction management services to our Client’s.
There is a method of design and construction delivery known as “Design Build”. Design-Build is a method of project delivery in which one entity - the design-build team - works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. This method is commonly used for larger commercial, industrial and public works types of projects. However, the benefits of this method are significant and also apply to residential projects! G has experience in working on design-build projects and can bring our expertise to your project.
