Design Process

Step 4: Scope of Work Meeting

During our second meeting, Grande Decor will present you with the Preliminary Scope of Work, Investment Parameter for your project and a few conceptual sketches. We will discuss the Design Deposit and move onto the next milestone: The Design Process.

Step 5: The Design Process

This phase is where the magic (and measure) take place. Together we will create your perfect floor plan (communicating with drawings and photo realistic renderings), hash out all the details and help you make the final finish selections. Our designers are knowledgeable in all phases of the construction project and will help you make the best choices in materials, appliances and finishes. Communication is key and is the focus of the process. During this phase, every part of your project is figured out, including final investment, lead times, work hours, etc. The completion of the design will lead us into the contract.

Step 6: Contract

Once your project is fully designed, soup to nuts, we exchange a mandated Pennsylvania state contract. This is for the protection of all parties. Pennsylvania’s Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act requires that a long list of disclosures appear in the contract, such as start and finish dates, names and addresses of subs, insurance coverage and a phone number for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Consumer Protection. We will walk through this together and once completed, construction will begin.

Step 7: Pre-Construction Meeting

During our Pre-Construction meeting, we will go over the start and finish times, explain our “cleanliness policy,” make note of your preferences as to home egress, and put up the appropriate signs and permits. Communication through updates and morning site visits will continue throughout the duration of the project.
