How the Process Works

At Swal’lech Construction we are your design-build specialists for all your new construction and remodeling projects. Design-build means that all the key aspects of your project are integrated within a single team — from design to building to warranty. This approach ensures the vision you started with equals the completed project you ended up with — your vision stays perfectly intact, down to the smallest detail. This approach is always less stressful. You only have one contract and one main point of contact which means quick on the fly changes, consistent and complete communications and keeping things within budget. As your one stop shop to make your dream come true, you and Swal’lech Construction develop a caring, efficient partnership.
Construction projects have a lot of moving parts, and we know it can sometimes be confusing and stressful. Ongoing project communications is key to minimizing confusion and reducing stress. Here is an overview of how the remodeling process with Swal’lech works for you.

Let us Talk.

During this phase we will get acquainted to see if we are a fit for each other. We will do a deep dive into your vision and make sure that we “get it.” We will talk about your budget in relation to your vision, consider possible options and explain how financing or payments to us work. We will discuss the schedule, your role in the project and what you can expect from us. We will be unfailingly honest — telling you what will be fun — and what will not. And we will leave you with a complete guidance kit full of useful information to help you understand not only who we are but also how projects like yours work.

The Professional Services Agreement

Prior to entering into a Construction Agreement together there will be pre-construction processes for which there will be fees. These fees are separate from the construction contract. These pre-construction processes will be handled with what is called a Professional Services Agreement or PSA. Your PSA will usually include costs for doing a detailed estimate that assures you a quality, completed project at a guaranteed price. The PSA will usually cover design services and sometimes some demolition and discovery work if required to create a guaranteed project price for you. The PSA does not oblige you to enter into a Construction Agreement with us and you own the results of the design work covered by the PSA.

Project Development

With all or most of the results of the PSA work in hand we will meet with you to talk through the project. We will take all the time you want to be comfortable and confident. We will go over the scope of work, project plan, progress payments, timelines, logistics and concerns. You will meet your personal project manager and discuss how communications can be handled.

The Construction Agreement

We will now have all the information to provide a price for your project, you will have signed off on the design and production plan. You have met your project manager and know who will be doing what to whom. We will provide an Agreement for our mutual signatures. We will go over and explain every deal of our straightforward Agreement.

Project Management

During the building phase we will handle all the details of ordering materials, scheduling, oversite, and coordination. Concurrently we will diligently keep you up to date on progress and issues. We will schedule regular meetings, both virtual and in person, to review progress, discuss changes, and prepare for the next steps.

In-Process Changes

No matter how carefully we plan your project together you will probably want to make some changes along the way. We are prepared to cheerfully accommodate any changes you want to make. Our Agreement will explain how costs associated with your changes will be handled.

Project Completion

During this completion phase we will meticulously inspect to ensure that craftsmanship level have been maintained throughout the project. We will have a final review meeting with you to answer any operational questions regarding appliances, heating and cooling systems and any other operational questions. We will do a final clean up to the highest standards possible both within the project and anything on the property that we touched. We will prepare a document for you to list anything you might run across that was not done right. And finally, you will benefit from our industry leading five-year warranty on our work.

Enjoy the fruits of all of our labors and thank you for letting us be a part of your dreams!
