Even though Henry Design Build is first and foremost a Design Build company, we will build from mature plans provided by the client or even from a set of stock plans that can be bought from one of the local design firms or architects. This is still the most common practice for building a custom home or commercial building in our area. In a nutshell the common practice is as such: Client buys a piece of land, client hires a design firm or an architect to complete the construction drawings, and client hires us as the builder to complete their project. The common practice works, but what we’ve found while building the areas more detailed custom homes is that every project Henry Design Build was engaged in from design to completion was far more successful. With a “Design Build “ or “integrated approach” the communication between the architect, design firm, client, and builder starts from day one and continues through and even after completion.
