Design-Build Process

Our Design-Build Process

We believe in the power of planning. We believe that processes make everything run more smoothly. And we believe that when we put in the time and effort to design an effective solution, implementing that solution will have fewer bumps along the way.

These beliefs have guided us as we developed our ‘Design-Build Process.’ We don’t rush into things, guns blazing. Instead, we walk with you through five stages that take you and your home from where you are to where you want to be. Each stage is characterized by careful consideration of your budget as well as your needs and wants. This ensures your complete and total satisfaction.

As a certified Control4 dealer and installer, we have experience in every stage of the implementation process. So, once you begin the smart home journey with us, you won’t have to worry about being handed off to someone else – for even a moment. We’ll be with you every step of the way, making sure that your dream home becomes a reality.

So, what does our design-build process look like?

Design-Build Process Step 1

1. Discovery…

Before any orders are made… before any drawings are produced… before we sit down to work on designs… we first sit down with you and listen to the hopes you have for your home. During these early interviews, we’ll find out exactly what you expect and work with you to sketch out a design that fits your budget, your desires, and our tech.

2. System Design…

After our interview with you, we’ll take what we heard and work to turn your hopes and dreams into an actionable plan. Our team of designers in Rockaway, NJ will analyze each room of your home and determine how the proper functionality can be implemented. Then, they’ll put together dozens of project drawings that will detail the locations of every piece of the necessary hardware. This will allow us to precisely estimate the needed hardware and labor costs. After all the designs and estimates are complete, we’ll meet with you once more to go over everything, listen to your feedback, make any needed changes, and obtain final approval.

3. Engineering…

After agreeing to the general design and budget, our engineering team will move in and work on a comprehensive plan for your project. They’ll go over each room of your home and the desired functionality with a fine-tooth comb, making sure every ‘i’ is dotted and every ‘t’ is crossed. This will be the plan that’s used by our installation team to make sure that the rest of the design-build process goes off without a hitch.

4. Implementation…

Once we have a clear engineering plan, we’ll order all the needed equipment and begin installation. The length of this stage in the design-build process can vary, depending on a number of factors. Once every piece has been put in place – including conduits, low-voltage wiring, enclosures, screens, etc. – we will test to make sure everything is in perfect working order. After the implementation is complete, all engineering documentation will be updated to reflect an ‘as-built’ state.
