SinglePoint Design Build Inc. was established in 2010 and has grown into one of Marin County’s premier Home Builder’s. We also have experience in Napa and Sonoma Counties. We specialize in Full Home Remodels and Ground Up Builds. If you are looking for expert project management and a boutique builder feel you have found to the right company. We want to be a partner in the construction of your home not just the builder.
Design Build is obviously our preferred Project Delivery Method, however we often work on projects through the traditional Design Bid Build delivery method. Each way of selecting a contractor has its pros and cons but it really comes down to the individual client and their preference. Whether you have a project ready to go with plans and permits or you are just getting started planning your project our highly skilled and experienced team is ready to help. If you have questions about the pro’s and cons of Design Build feel free to contact us and we would be happy to walk you through the process.
The other decision any homeowner will need to understand is the difference in the terms of the Construction Contract. We are set up to provide both of the most common construction contracts as well as a hybrid contract that is a nice blend between the two. The two most common are Stipulated Sum and Cost Plus. In the Stipulated Sum the Contractor provides a bid for the work depicted in the plans and the work is then billed for based on the bid and progress complete to date. In the Cost Plus the Contractor provides a general estimate of the cost but bills for actual costs spent to date plus a pre-negotiated fee. The hybrid between the two is called Cost Plus with a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). This contract offers the transparency of the Cost Plus but puts a cap on the total budget much like the Stipulated Sum. If you have any questions about any of these contract types please let us know.
