1. Design

At Sasco B+D, we understand that you may already have that perfect vision of your dream home – and you may even have dabbled as a designer yourself when you sketched out your version of that long-awaited home of yours. The great news is that with our designing services, those valuable sketches of yours and ideas will be the core of our initial meeting with you.

Our design professionals will listen intently to what you envision for your home and correspond them with your needs such as your proposed budget, functionality, etc. From there, we will provide the advice you need in order to build a home that would not only be beautiful, but sustainable, functional and bring further value to it in the long run.

At this design stage, we will take a look at the project site and all relevant measurements and pictures as well as any plans which you may have in order to make the best recommendations to building your home based on your needs. Once we’ve created the drawings and conceptual floor plans as approved by you, our designers will proceed to collaborate with our architects and engineers in order to achieve the best possible working drawings. 

By working together from start to finish with the designer, architect and engineer, we will proceed to have our experienced superintendents conduct a complete constructability review to make sure that based on the final drawings, your project is indeed buildable.

Our expert designers will listen to your needs and work with you every step of the way, until your vision of your dream home becomes a reality.

2. Planning

Functioning as a team of experts in the design and construction industry with constant communication and collaboration while being aware of the entire construction process makes the whole planning phase a breeze. Once the working drawings have been finalized, our team will proceed to prepare the building permit application and packet submission to the local jurisdictions.

Dealing with Local Authorities
We do it all

We act as your liaison with the Building or Planning Committees and other necessary departments within the local jurisdiction of your project. This stage in the planning process is just as important as every stage in the design-build process, just as tricky and may take you months to complete if you don’t have constant communication and collaboration with your designer.

During meetings with the committee, our clients face the possibility of objections from the neighbors surrounding the proposed designs and drawing. Concerns related to the plans of the house causing invasion of privacy issues, the overall appearance and structure of the house, environment preservation and a whole multitude of issues have known to arise during these meetings. As part of our services to you, we appear on your behalf to address these issues and make sure that the project will get the necessary approvals and permits in order to keep to the schedule.

To date, we have successfully conducted presentations and passed all meetings with flying colors and kept to our schedule for beginning construction. This is another advantage of working with us as a design-builder – we are able to coordinate the responses from local committees with our design professionals in timely fashion in order to address any requests for modifications. Time is precious and by providing all our services under one roof, you will get a quicker turnover time with us.

3. construction

Here is where all the designing and planning begins it fruition – the construction phase. As your design-builder, we prepare the schedule for construction and coordinate the work of the subcontractors in the most efficient manner. Being privy to the overall design of the house and understanding the needs of our clients from the earliest stages, we become very well-informed in the construction stage as well. This proves valuable in a achieving a smooth construction process with lower risks of delays, unexpected budget increases and conflicts with all parties involved.

  • In addition to this, we also manage construction activities and the project site. This further entails solving on-site problems as they arise throughout the building process and managing the work flow. As purveyors of high quality and expert workmanship for all our creations, Sasco B+D provides quality control for each phase of the project as well.
  • This is also the stage of the project where we provide our clients with assistance in the selection of materials used for the project, and that’s not all. We will also coordinate and schedule the necessary inspections with the local agencies as well in order for the project to achieve total completion without a hitch.

inception to completion

When we say completion, we mean that your every need in your home can be well provided for - down to the kitchen cabinets to the modern furniture you'd like to compliment your beautiful, modern home.
