We at Gilday Renovations have coined a term that describes our approach to design build remodeling. We call it integrated design build. That’s because the designing, planning, constructing and managing of every project is seamlessly integrated at every phase. This is a snap shot of one moment in the timeline of a master bath remodeling project in Washington DC.
We won’t. The designer stays involved with the clients and the project through the entire construction process. Sure. There is a hand off. At this point in the timeline, the lead carpenter is responsible for everything that happens on site and for running the project efficiently to a successful outcome–the one the clients are expecting. The designer and builder are on the same team. They speak each others language. They respect and rely on each others expertise. The project and the client are the beneficiaries of that tight collaboration.
This integrated way of working is something Tom and Kevin Gilday have developed over many years. They work this way because it is in their view the only way to consistently achieve top notch results. They won’t settle for anything less. And it’s an expensive business model. It quite simply costs more to attract and retain the best designers, architects, project managers and craftsmen in the field. It’s worth it. One of our clients, for whom we recently completed a kitchen addition, said this of her Gilday Renovations experience: “It costs a little more but you get so much more.”
