Plans mean nothing; planning is everything.
Good design is an important part of what we do at R & M Construction Co. Good design will reflect your tastes and sensibilities, while helping us to work within your budget. Many people wonder when they get past the “thinking about it” stage of their project how they should proceed. Call us – we like to start at the beginning! In many cases, we can help with suggestions and ideas, and we also know when to bring in a professional designer or architect. Good design costs money; there is no getting around it. For a moment though, think about how much poor design will cost you: a room layout that isn’t quite right, or a missed opportunity for convenience. You may lose the “wow” factor in a room where professional planning might have provided just what you dreamed about. Design and planning is the first step towards getting what you really want. We can work with an architect or designer to give you a meaningful idea of costs as you begin a planning process, which can help with budgeting before finalizing design. This can help you decide to scale back, go with your dream, or in some cases not to proceed at all. We have found that once we get past the simple projects, a free estimate is worth exactly what you pay for it. So while we won’t promise a free estimate for every situation, we will promise a free consultation, and we can go from there with a plan to maximize your remodeling satisfaction.
Universal Design is becoming more prominent throughout society now. It is the design and composition of an environment so that it can be accessed, understood and used to the greatest extent possible by all people regardless of their age, size, ability or disability. By considering the diverse needs and abilities of all throughout the design process, universal design creates products, services and environments that meet peoples’ needs. Simply put, universal design is good design. Feel free to ask us more about Universal Design at anytime.
