Kogan Builders’ business practice is centered on our Design-Build model. This provides our clients with exceptional service; beginning with the conception of their new home all the way through to completion. We provide extensive architectural services that include a building site analysis, floor plans, hand rendered elevations, and complete construction documents (blueprints). We also have a full time design coordinator who works hand in hand with the client prior to and throughout the building process to select interior and exterior finishes that fit their design preferences as well as their budget.
Being involved in the process from start to finish allows Kogan Builders to offer many benefits to you as a homeowner. Our Whole Systems approach results in a home designed for your needs, designed for quality, and designed for value.
These benefits include:
Custom design - We develop each design specific to the building site, budget and client’s preferences.
Quality in design – We monitor the project from start to finish to ensure the highest level of quality.
Value in design – Our team works collaboratively to design efficient floor plans and select quality interior finishes that are budget friendly. Regardless of the overall budget, each home is built with the most efficient processes and resources, creating a home of exceptional value. We make sure that the home you design is the home you can afford to live in.
Convenience – Kogan Builders offers superior service from start to finish of every project. Instead of contacting an architect, engineer, designer, etc., our clients make one phone call to their project manager who handles everything. The convenience of having the entire project managed by a single source is especially beneficial for out of town clients.
Quick completion of the design – Our hands on approach and open communication make the design process run smoothly.
Efficient, low maintenance homes - As a certified green builder, we offer a wide spectrum of affordable green building solutions that save our clients on energy costs, improve indoor air quality and reduce environmental impact.
Already have a designer/architect or building plans?
Please keep in mind that we frequently work with outside designers and architects and are able to build from existing house plans. We will happily take a look at your plans at no cost or obligation.
The Design-Build Process:
Don’t miss the views! The site evaluation addresses building placement, solar gain, view optimization and infrastructure. This important piece of the planning process allows efficient placement of the design on the building site, creating a solid foundation for a successful project. Contact us for a free site evaluation to address the conditions on your property.
Where the fun begins! Kogan Builders identifies each clients’ individual needs through an interview process. Architects and designers on our team then develop floor plans and exterior elevations with input from our clients. Once we get the desired layout and floor plan, we present an entire Schematic Design package to our client.
Construction Documents and Engineering:
As part of our design service, we then provide a complete set of construction documents (blueprints) designed by a licensed structural engineer. You are then ready to build!
Interior and Exterior Design:
In this next phase we work closely with each client to select interior and exterior finishes. With the assistance of KBI’s Design Coordinator, clients select beautiful and unique finishes that fit their style and budget. We also design custom stone fireplaces, stair railings, range hoods, entry and interior doors, tile work (counter tops and back splashes), kitchen layouts, interior timber detailing, built-in cabinets and custom furniture. A preliminary sketch is created for our clients and trade contractors to use as a reference point for the finished product. In working with the trade contractors our Design Coordinator insures that each custom feature is built to the exact specifications of the client.
Throughout construction, a Project Manager is assigned to each client to assure constant communication throughout the entire project. This provides our out of town clients with a worry-free construction process. Our impeccable craftsmanship and green building techniques create award winning homes and enduring relationships. This elevates Kogan Builders a step above the rest!
