Custom designs for new custom homes, remodeling projects, commercial construction and commercial remodeling, including tenant build-outs, are all completed in-house by Trade Wind Builders’ own design expert Randy Buzzell. Randy has been architectural design work for over 15 years in Brevard County. He is familiar with the local ordinances of the different municipalities in our area including Merritt Island, Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, Melbourne, Satellite Beach, Melbourne Beach, Rockledge and Titusville.
Our custom designs start with first understanding the client’s needs, desires and budget. We tailor custom home plans to fit each lot, taking full advantage of views, access or other important aspects of the lot. Our remodeling projects are started by first drawing the existing structure, understanding the client’s wishes for the modifications while keeping in mind any structural limitations. Commercial design work is completed with first understanding our client’s intentions for the property and any budget limitations. Next, restrictions placed on the property such as parking requirements, site drainage, fire codes and other code-compliant items are defined, understood and implemented into the custom design.
Here’s the best part about a Trade Wind Custom Design: It’s included in our construction pricing. We find that by working with the same designer time and again, our construction costs actually go down. They go down because we have worked together as a team for so long that our mistakes encountered in designs are greatly reduced in comparison to working with plans drawn by different designers on different projects.
Additionally, by having the custom designs in our system, we can better administer the project when changes are needed, thus eliminating any third-party involvement and saving weeks of down time. Between the reduction in errors and the increased turn-around time for modifications, our savings are great enough that we can actually offer our designs at no cost to our clients.
Our design / build offer is simple. If you select us to do your design work, we will work with you to create your custom plan. You may then use that plan to obtain competitive pricing to compare against our proposal. If you select Trade Wind Builders, your custom designs are included in our pricing. If you select another contractor, the plans are available to you at our direct cost. We do not include any of our time, only the hours involved by our designer.
Put us to the challenge. You will find our pricing very competitive, thanks to our management skills, large volume buying power and use of skilled subcontractors. Contact us today for a free consultation.
