Updated: Jun 25
From the first call to move-in day, Riverside Design and Build, is here to make building your dream home a stress-free experience.
The First thing we Build is a Relationship.
Here at Riverside Design and Build, we are truly honored to have the opportunity to build your dream home. We want to get to know you right from the start so that we can understand who you are, how you will use each space, and all of the details that are important to you!
We also want to give you the opportunity to get to know us, our work ethic, and a chance to see how passionate we are about your project. In the Master Builder tradition, Riverside Design and Build provides a seamless process of designing and constructing custom residences for our clients.
Site Acquisition or Existing Structure Analysis is next!
Marc, as builder, and Michele, as architect consultant, listen to what you have in mind, look at images you might have to share, look with you at our past work that you might admire, and begin to thoroughly assess your needs. Based on our conversation, we can then develop a program, review the budget, and if needed, help locate a property. Marc’s extensive real estate background offers expert guidance in selecting a site, analyzing existing structures, and financing options.
Our team begins with developing a preliminary schematic design that incorporates your needs, desires, and budget into an architectural solution. A Schematic Design gives an overall design approach with floor plans and elevations that respond to your vision and budget. We incorporate your program needs, explore sustainable design options, study value engineering, site design and engineering, and analyze government zoning and code requirements. Upon approval of the Schematic Design, our team proceeds toward developing Construction Documents in detail and suitable for filing with governmental authorities.
Last Step of the Build
Marc Vandenhoeck personally manages construction from the earliest stages of mobilization and site preparation through obtaining a Certificate of Occupancy and a final house cleaning. Our clients are assured complete assistance from start to finish. Riverside Design and Build, LLC's carefully culled team of tradespeople and artisans ensures the highest level of quality and integrity throughout your project.
