Home Addition - Sokol Design-Build GroupThe Service Process

Your Project Consultant will guide you through the complete interior / architectural design of your remodeling or renovation project.

Make in-home appointment 
The design and build experience with SOKOL Design-Build Group begins with the first email. During this first email-consultation, you will set up an appointment to meet at your project site. Your Project Consultant will know to your preliminary ideas, share information with you about detail of your project and our design-build or remodeling processes.

On-Site Consultation
The on-site consultation begins with your Project Consultant meeting with you at your home or project site to discuss feasibility, design and budget. Our first priority is to listen to your needs and to gain a feel for how you want your project to function and look. We then create solutions that are functional, aesthetically pleasing and within your budget.

Investment Range
From the knowledge that we gathered during our on site consultation your Project Consultant will create an Investment Range that reflects the actual cost of your project based on the information you have provided paralleled with our building standards. Your Project Consultant may also provide an estimated time for completion of your project. Both the Investment Range and completion time are subject to change.

Conceptual Design Agreement and Preliminary Estimate
Once you have approved the investment range we will then engage in a Conceptual Design (we will provide three different 3D computer models of design with corresponding cost estimates). The cost of the Conceptual Design Agreement is $1,500- $3,500 (depending on the size of the project). The Conceptual Design Agreement’s cost will be included to the Final Contract Estimate, if the customer chooses Sokol Design-Build Group as a contractor. The customer receives Conceptual Drawings after the signing of Letter of Intent. The Conceptual Design will be ready in 10 working days from receipt date of the agreement signed and piece-work payment.
If you need only drawing for the Building Permit, it will cost 4%-7% (depending on the size of the project) from construction cost.
After discussion, conceptual designs, for further work, the customer will sign Letter of Intent for design-build or remodeling process, include initial payment of 5% – 7% (depending on the size of the project) of the budget for the project.

Final Documents
As soon as all revisions have been made to your design, your construction documents will be engineer approved and permit ready.  At this point a final scope of work will be created to verbalize what is pictured in your construction documents and list all final product selections.  A project schedule will be created to show a start and completion date along with a draw schedule to outline the payment schedule.  Finally, a contract will be created to tie everything together.

Construction
After execution, Construction drawings for Maryland or Washington DC Permit Department enrollment and homeowner’s association approval will be secured. We will sign the Fixed Price Contract and begin construction process. Your Project Manager is responsible for scheduling the trades and products necessary for project completion along with quality assurance.  Weekly through to the completion of your project you will meet with your Project Manager on site to discuss progress and answer any questions that may have arisen.  Even though you only have one set time each week to meet with your Project Manager he or she is always available by phone or email.
