PROJECT TYPES

When the level of client interaction and attention to detail is as important as the quality of the work performed, we are an invaluable project partner. Whether remodeling/upgrades, a whole house transformation, integration of additional space or construction of an entirely new structure, we tailor our approach specific to the scope and scale of each project.

Custom Homes

The opportunity to create a custom home that reflects who you are and how you live is an experience which can be easy for some and daunting for others. No matter how your process starts, the most important elements include selecting a team of professionals who have the expertise, integrity and communication skills to ensure the right chemistry. This relationship starts in design and can take anywhere from five months to a year or more depending on how your “vision” evolves – the objective, to complete a final set of plans, elevations, details and finish specifications for the construction of your new home. These plans are then submitted for jurisdictional review and compliance with city/county/state building requirements – reviews can take eight to twelve weeks for final permit approval. The construction duration is determined during design based on overall project scale and scope – following receipt of permit, anticipate anywhere between eleven to thirteen months for job completion.

We will tailor your custom home program specific to the level of involvement you choose to have during each phase of the process. The decisions are yours with the guidance and support needed as the project plan progresses.

Additions & Renovations

Additions and Renovations make up a significant part of our overall work program. Projects range from kitchen and bath remodels to whole house transformations, and are an excellent way to add value to your investment and lifestyle as needs change and products and materials evolve, promoting greater convenience and efficiencies.

These projects present a unique set of challenges from those found in new home construction. An existing structure imposes constraints on construction and design. Balancing the desire to update and transform an older home while seeking a seamless transition from old to new is not an easy task. We have the proven expertise partnering with some of the area’s finest architects, or dedicating our own in-house talent to achieve this goal. We evaluate existing conditions, review as-built drawings and assess structural requirements to ensure the new work is fully coordinated and integrated to produce the desired results in terms of function, design, cost, schedule and quality. We take great measures to protect your home and possessions, while minimizing inconvenience and disruption to your family and surroundings during the process. From completed plans or design-build, we will work closely with you to identify the best options available to meet your overall project needs and goals.

Related Facilities

Our team approach to project management and delivery has enabled us to astutely apply our attention to quality and finish details to related facility construction, including projects at the Episcopal High School (EHS) in Alexandria and The Madeira School in McLean.

Completion of a two-phase project on the EHS campus required the 4 week renovation of art studio classrooms into Office space to house staff being temporarily relocated from the Admissions Office. Immediately following this work, we began the 6,500 SF three floor renovation and concurrent construction of a new 2,500 SF, three level Addition to the existing Penick Hall Admissions Building. New and renovated space included Staff Offices, Communications Offices, Conference Room, Security Station, Main Reception, Student/Visitor Waiting Area with walk-out terrace and Administrative Support Areas. Site Improvements included a new covered main entry portico and front entrance peninsula, walkway and parking area.

Project work at The Madeira School has included coordination and installation of the new Mary Mae Foundation – Griffith Cottages, an enclave of five new modular homes for Faculty staff with associated site development and landscape work completed in seven months. Additional projects have included: equestrian trail/pathways improvements; exterior repairs to the Science Building; emergency water line repairs; truss repairs at the Student Center and various miscellaneous service and maintenance requests.
