Robert Fitzgerald…

Fitzgerald Construction…

was founded in 1996 with a goal to be recognized as the preferred contractor for renovations and new custom homes. Since that time Fitzgerald Construction has successfully designed and completed more than 200 renovations and new homes.

We have accomplished this by building long-term relationships with our vendors, subcontractors and homeowners. We realize that happy customers are the best form of advertising so we prefer to focus our attention on cultivating those relationships rather than relying on any other forms of advertising.

We communicate closely with our clients and return all calls and messages promptly. Part of our pleasure in the work we do is taking the time to work collaboratively with our clients, paying personal attention to your needs, desires, time frame and budget. We are committed to gaining a thorough understanding of your tastes, daily life patterns, and the qualities of home that you wish to enhance. With your input and ideas, we design and then build that which fits your unique life style.

We have, and will continue to, work relentlessly to have the customer feel as excited about our company at the end of the project as they did at the beginning.

The Process

The Process: Step-by-Step

1. Personal Interview: A personal meeting is very important to our process. Our first meeting with you usually runs one-and-a-half to two hours, during which time we discuss and take detailed notes on your needs, wants, ideas and ideals. We can usually determine the appropriate approach to take at this time.

2. Preliminary (Schematic) Design: We develop preliminary designs based on the discussion and ideas generated at our meeting. These designs are presented in the form of sketches, drawings (plans and elevations) and three dimensional models, if needed. We are able to price various options at this stage, which can help in your decision making.

3. Design Development: It is normal and even desirable to spend time refining the design at this stage. Usually one of the preliminary designs is chosen or various options are melded together into a final buildable design. We “value-engineer” your project, determining the most cost effective way to build. Sometimes we can incorporate the design refinements directly into our next step. The design is then sent on to the engineer for review and a final stamp.

4. Permit (Construction) Drawings and Documents: We now ‘fine tune’ the final design, formally drawing it up with structural notes, dimensions and supporting documentation (energy and structural calculations, window and door schedules, site plans, etc.) required for city or county building permits. We submit the package and follow it through until permits are issued. At this time we can provide a final price for the construction of your project.

5. Additional Design Development: This step may or may not be required. At this point you may be wondering “What does that stair railing look like exactly?” Permit documents do not require detailed interior design or finish specifications. However, our clients often do, and we enjoy providing this higher level of design. Depending on your budget and the level of detail you would like, we can build from the permit documents with a simple outline of products and finishes, or we can provide detailed design specifications for all of the surfaces we will construct.

6. Construction: The construction phase is intense and exciting. We stay organized and enjoy the process. No matter how much preparation and planning has been done, there are always decisions to be made. We like to involve the owner as much as he or she wishes. We also like to take advantage of any new opportunities that might appear to improve the design. We are adept at presenting new options clearly and simply, whether it’s a design detail or a structural change. We provide an itemized time schedule for construction, so you know exactly what is happening when. We are open to having you participate in the construction to any extent you wish.
