Pre-Construction: This phase involves an initial meeting with clients to discuss building process, design, architectural style, lifestyle and budget. Then we conduct a building site analysis looking at preliminary designs and plans. We can work off of an already completed plan set from the owner’s architect, or as an option to our clients Zoltan Construction is a design-build firm, we highly prefer to work hand in hand with our architect during design stage to ensure construction design and documents are perfect for our clients.
What is Design-Build? Instead of dividing tasks between separate architect and construction companies, as a design-build firm, we cover the entire project from the initial design through final construction. We take on the responsibilities of architects and construction companies all under one roof. Advantages include: streamlined process from the initial design to the estimating phase to physical construction. Reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design and construction phases of the project. In addition, we work to minimize risks for the owner through single-point responsibility contracts.

Construction: During this phase we have weekly meetings regarding construction updates, budgets and schedules. We also finalize home features and lifestyle selections, including visits to design centers and vendors to make final decisions on materials used. We firmly believe that a one of a kind custom home’s features cannot be selected in a day. We are prepared and willing to go the extra mile to ensure that each and every feature in our client’s homes are exactly what they are looking for. This portion of the phase also includes:
