Meet with our staff in person or via phone call and discuss your project.
- If you do not have building/remodeling plans drafted at this point we will:
- Discuss the scope of the project.
- Offer our design services.
- If you already have construction plans completed we will:
- Review the plans and discuss the scope of the project.
- Together with you, complete a project survey.
For about two hours we’ll meet with you at your home or project site.
- Create A Scope Of Work:
- We’ll take detailed notes and listen to your needs and wants.
- We’ll ask questions that will help with planning, costs, and timelines.
- Discuss Budget
- Discuss Pre-Construction Agreement*

After the site visit, we’ll gather our notes, talk to our team and follow up to verify we have everything correct.
- Set Expectations For Project
- Setup Potential Timelines
Second Site Visit *If Needed
Once we’ve got clear guidance and set expectations we’ll setup a second site visit if needed to complete the project estimate.

4-6 Weeks after the second site visit or follow up we’ll create your detailed estimate that includes:

What Is A Pre-Construction Agreement?
A pre-construction agreement is used when a homeowner and a contractor would like to move forward working together but don’t yet have completed plans, a final estimate of costs, or a working budget. The pre-construction (or pre-con) agreement allows the contractor to conduct research, start looking for sub-contractors or specialists, and create a detailed estimate for costs.
Do I Need A Pre-Construction Agreement?
This will depend on your project. A good rule of thumb is if any permits are needed, we will likely ask for a pre-construction agreement.
Does The Pre-Construction Agreement Cost Money?
Yes. Our pre-construction agreements start at $350 and increase from there depending on the scope of your project. This cost is used for our team to complete research on permits, ordinances, laws, code, as well as generate a complete and accurate estimate personalized to you. Once you receive your estimate there is no commitment to work with Anderson & Hammack.
