Commercial Construction and Renovation: Design-Build Process

Commercial Construction and Renovation


When you work with the McClurg Team, you'll always know what to expect.

To ensure your complete satisfaction, we follow a proven 3-step process for all commercial construction and renovation projects:



Step 1 - Consultation and Estimate

  • Initial Appointment/Interview
    The Project Consultant - your contact through job completion - meets with you to discuss your needs and schedule, and present the McClurg Team qualifications. We'll answer your questions and strive to thoroughly understand your requirements.
  • Preliminary Budget
    After collecting information during the initial appointment, the Project Consultant meets with one of our estimators to develop a preliminary budget range for your project. The Project Consultant then meets with you to discuss the preliminary budget and ensure we are meeting your expectations before proceeding to a written estimate.
  • Verbal Commitment
    We'll request your verbal commitment to select McClurg Remodeling & Construction Services as your Contractor.

Step 2 - Project Design

  • Execute Memorandum of Understanding
    Next, a written, general description of your project is drawn up for your review and approval, at which time we'll request a retainer and schedule your project.
  • Complete the Design and Estimate
    Then, we finalize your design and you make product selections with the guidance of your Project Consultant and design team, while our subcontractors and suppliers submit quotes for your project.
  • The Project Contract
    The Project Consultant presents to you a detailed contract, along with any pertinent drawings or attachments. Once you approve the contract, a McClurg Production Team is assigned to your project.

Step 3 - Project Construction

  • Pre-Construction Meeting
    You meet the Lead Carpenter or Project Manager who will be in charge of construction, and the Project Contract will be read through line-by-line. You will also receive a written schedule.
  • Project Construction
    During construction, your Lead Carpenter or Project Manager will be your main source of information. The Project Consultant will visit to review progress, answer design questions and prepare change orders if anything is added or taken out of the contract.
  • Final Walk-Thru
    The Lead Carpenter or Project Manager and Project Consultant walk you through the finished project and ensure your complete satisfaction.
