By incorporating the latest technologies like high energy efficiency, custom finishes, and structural details that exceed industry standards. Concept Builders has continually redefined the state of the art.



Concept Builders will

  • Analyze the property for your proposed project.
  • Verify that the local codes approve of the project scope.
  • Discuss budget planning and cost controls for design and construction.



Concept Builders provides in-house preliminary design services or we will work directly with your own architect to develop the look and feel of your vision, your budget, and timeline.

+ Design Steps:

  • We will provide the preliminary design phase for you to preview. This will include a conceptual floor plan and building elevation sketches. We want to ensure the design is clearly coming to life and meets your expectation.
  • Once you have reviewed and approved the preliminary drawings, architectural and structural drafting of your plan begins.
  • During this phase, we will consult and encourage you to fine-tune the many details that make up your project.
  • After your plans have been developed, we will then complete the final CAD drawings. These will include complete architectural, structural, and engineering as necessary, all ready for submittal to obtain building permits.
