The Creative Process

The Initial Call

When you call MasterWorks, we will speak with you about the goals you have in mind for your renovation project and discuss the feasibility of those goals in conjunction with your budget, your neighborhood and your short and long term plans. We want to make sure we provide you with the best service and advice for your circumstances. Our objective will be to turn your thoughts and dreams into reality.


On-Site Complimentary Consultation

The initial phone call is followed by an on-site consultation where we come out to meet with you in person and take a closer look at your home space and existing conditions. At this point, we will discuss, in a bit more detail, your goals and possible solutions. We will also make sure you fully understand our process and will show you examples of similar jobs that we have done for our other clients. We will be happy to give you references that you can contact to discuss our process, quality of work and professionalism.



Design Meeting/Existing Conditions Documentation

Following the preliminary plan review and finish selections, we proceed to the final development phase of the design. We will bring a small group of our trades out to your home to see the site first hand, along with the plans, so that we may ensure we cover all of the details in developing your renovation package. When all of the information is gathered and the details worked out, we will bring you back in for a final presentation of the plans. This is the chance to iron out any last minute details or changes to the plans or finishes. We like to get those decisions and details worked out in advance of construction so that you can sit back and enjoy the transformation of old to new in this exciting process.

Contract Signing

With the last details finished, we will sign a construction contract. At this meeting, we will again review the plans, the project scope, the cabinetry designs, and the finish selections, and answer any remaining questions you may have so that you can get prepared for the transformation. We’ll describe the anticipated project lifecycle and stages of development so that you’ll know up front what to expect of us and we’ll let you know what our expectations are of you. We’ll prepare you for how and when you will be impacted during the construction process. Our goal will be to manage your project so as to make the process simple and enjoyable for you, and to minimize any imposition and demands on you and your personal time!



Construction

Construction begins with an introduction to your project manager, a review of the contract documents and a discussion about what to expect during the construction process. We will present you with your MasterWorks Project Notebook that includes a copy of your contract, a project management plan, copies of our workers’ compensation and liability insurance policies, lists of contractor provided and homeowner provided items, and other information pertinent to your specific project. Throughout the project we will have both informal and regularly scheduled progress review meetings to make sure we are proceeding according to contract, and that we are continuing to successfully set and meet your expectations. When the transformation is complete, we will have a final walkthrough with you to insure we identify any areas that may need “fine tuning” and leave you to enjoy your new space. Our one year warranty assures your continuing satisfaction.


Our Commitment to You

We understand that your home is a vital part of your lifestyle and day-to-day activity. You have our personal commitment that work will be performed to your satisfaction, within proposed timeframes and within the agreed upon budget stated…with personal care and consideration for you, our valued client. Our goal is to leave you as a more than satisfied client, proud of the project we have done for you, glad that you selected MasterWorks as your contractor, anxious to start your next project and willing to refer us to your friends and family. We appreciate that our clients are our best advertising!
