Awesome Client Communication
from Project Start to Completion!

Often the first decision that must be faced is whether to renovate a home or remove it from the lot and build a replacement home.
These and many other questions can be answered during an initial meeting with a Channel representative. Important questions that, when answered by a qualified professional, will provide the best design and cost solutions for your specific needs. Large projects generally benefit from the engagement of a “full-service” contractor such as Channel that is capable of taking responsibility for all aspects of feasibility, design, cost projection, permitting & construction.
Consultation – During an initial in-home meeting, we would review your ideas, rough plans & options and project a rough range-of-cost. This pricing information is invaluable in expediting early-stage decision making.
Feasibility – Building code requirements and structural issues can usually be addressed in this first meeting. We can also solicit opinions from City Planning personnel, engineers or other professionals, if more in-depth information is required.
Cost Projection – Once conceptual drawings are available, your rough estimate can be refined. Then when construction drawings and specifications have been prepared, a Formal Estimate Package can be generated.
Architectural Design/Drawings – Concept and preliminary drawings, as well as a site plan, street-scape, construction drawings and interior space-plan drawings will variously be required for your renovation or new home build. We would involve an architect or architectural designer, engineer and surveyors, interior and/or kitchen designers, all as needed for various phases of your project. If you have already had drawings prepared, we would be happy to provide a project/construction management bid.
Permitting – This process can be frustrating, time consuming and seemingly convoluted to the uninitiated. Our experience with the Planning Department can expedite approvals for all types of Applications, particularly for Development & Building Permits.
Construction – We are experienced managers of all facets of this detailed process, from assembling & assessing supplier bids, purchasing, scheduling and site & trade supervision, to quality control. It almost goes without saying that regular communication with our customers is of utmost importance. Further to that, we provide a week-to-week schedule outline, so you know what to expect. Also, a key “decision-point” timeline to motivate the shopper in you and a “preferred-supplier” guide to make that process simple and fun.
Post-Construction – In addition to our standard two year Material/Workmanship Warranty and Warranties provided by various suppliers and product manufacturers, we also provide extended “third-party” Warranty protection for your new home project. And, of course, if customers experience a problem or have a question beyond Warranty coverage, they are welcome to contact us at any time.
