With the traditional method of building, the architect leads the design process by producing architectural drawings at a cost of approximately 10-15% of the total project, which typically does not include any applicable permitting fees, septic design fees, engineering fees or coastal assent fees. Any design changes requested by the client would be billed as an additional architectural design cost. The changes would then be added to the drawings without concern of the client budget. Once the client reviews the revised design plan and is advised of the additional costs involved, they often must forego the requested design change due to budget restrictions.
The Davitt Experience Makes the Difference!
The Davitt Process eliminates any unnecessary costs during design to maximize our clients budget on the project instead of architectural costs. Our architectural drawing and design fees are generally 5-7% of the total cost of the project and include permitting fees, septic design fees, engineering fee’s and coastal assent fees. To keep a clients’ budget on track, we price each section of a custom home as we draw it, so the client is always in control of their budget. This level of transparency is an integral part of our overall process.
As the leader in coastal home building regulation, Davitt completely understands every intricate detail of what is required to build along our beautiful coastline. Davitt is often called upon by other local contractors to assist with coastal regulation guidelines and permitting.
The Davitt Design Build process pairs the client with the architect and builder from the outset of each project. Our design build approach puts the clients voice in the decision-making process every step of the way. Each client is matched with a project manager which is their single point of contact throughout the project. This eliminates the confusion of who the client should contact when questions arise. Your PM will keep you on schedule and on budget with every decision that needs to be made during your custom home journey.
