Many builders use multiple entities in a process called design-build, which entails separate entities, separate contracts, and separate work performed by a wide array of individual craftsmen.

While the design-bid-build method of construction projects has increased dramatically over the past 15 years, at J Wright Building Building Company, we prefer to use the tried-and-true design-build construction method. Why?

Once we know what you want to see in your new home, then we move into the design and quote review phase. That’s where we design your new home’s floor plan and elevation and provide you with a thorough quote to bring the vision to completion.

After that’s completed, we move into the specification review and create a complete build sheet that includes final plans, final quotes, and all specifications to bring your project to fruition.
