Our 7 Step Approach

1. Getting to Know Each Other
During our initial meeting, we listen carefully to your vision for the look and function of your space. In this meeting, we will discuss:

  • Short- and long-term goals for your home
  • Your design tastes and preferences
  • Review our design and construction procedures
  • Answer any questions you may have

Your designer will work with you to establish a budget and prepare an agreement that will establish a clear set of expectations for the project.
2. Property Assessment & Design Generation
Our team will take property measurements and review property conditions to then create a plan will include details that clearly define the specifications of your project. At this time, all material selections will be made for every element of your project.
3. Review the Scope of Work
Our team will review the scope of work with you prior to construction commencing. All timelines and deliveries will be scheduled before the work begins.
4. Home Remodeling & Construction Project Management
Eco Minded Solutions will assign an experienced project manager to your project. Your project manager will work with the construction manager, foreman, and construction crew to guarantee that every detail of the project plan is properly implemented.
During your project, you will work closely with your EMS designer and EMS project manager. They will provide updates and discuss your project with you every step of the way.
5. Pre-Construction Meeting
Prior to the start of construction on your home, we will schedule an onsite pre-construction meeting with you. Your EMS designer and EMS project manager will do a final review of the entire scope of work to ensure that any unanswered questions are addressed. We want to be sure that your expectations are being met so that you are fully satisfied with the final result.
6. Construction Begins
With plans and permits finalized and materials selected, the project breaks ground and Eco Minded’s home remodelers go to work!
7. Project Completion
At completion, your EMS project manager will walk through your property with you to identify any elements that require modification, including any last minute changes or upgrades.
