Our Process - "step by step"

Design/build firms should follow a logical process in the design and estimating of a complex project. Our goal is to create the renovation you want... on time and within your budget. Below is our approach to our process.

Initial Consultation

Discuss client’s project / Dureiko Construction presentation / Can Dureiko help with their project, is there a fit between us both? (30-60minutes – no charge)

Step 1 - Design Meetings are held if you decide to move forward with Dureiko

Meeting #1

Move forward with our design/build process (approximately 1-2 hours)

  1. Sign our design/build agreement - commit to design and costing only at this time.
  2. Obtain retainer fee from client  (which will be applied towards job once signed)
  3. Take pictures of job site*                                                     *( At this meeting or soon after)
  4. Take measurements*
  5. Gather information from client on their project (photos and other info)*
  6. Give the client homework
           • Have them think about their project and have questions for the next meeting
           • Have them look at publications for ideas www.houzz.com
           • Have client check out our web site at www.dureiko.com
  7. Drop off or mail to the client
           • Questionnaire - Client to fill out and mail back to us
           • Product selection sheet
  8. Schedule next meeting within 3 weeks


Meeting #2

Review design concepts and budget and make comments (approximately 1 – 2 hours)

  1.  Drawings will be presented to express design concepts for owners to visualize design
    intent. Drawings may include floor plans exterior views, interior views, interior overviews
