Administration and marketing
Our administrative and marketing staff ensures that the company is a stable, well oiled, working machine. They ensure the company’s time tested reliability, organization, and ethical standards. Furthermore, they are present to ensure homeowner satisfaction from the beginning to end of the design-build process.
Project coordinators have a fundamental understanding of the design and construction process. They guide the homeowner through the entire process by directly interfacing with them, keeping organized schedules, offering design solutions, and demystifying any confusion.
Project managers organize, execute, and deliver the finished renovation or new construction product. They are responsible for accomplishing the stated objectives of the homeowner while balancing time, cost, and quality.
Our designers are skilled 3D modelers and draftspersons, and also possess rendering and graphic design skills. Designers help translate homeowners’ lifestyles into architectural form and function, finding innovative, efficient solutions to budgetary and programmatic requirements.
Our estimator is skilled at forecasting the cost, size, and duration of any project by analyzing drawings, site location, materials, labor, and other special project requirements. Having an experienced estimator helps GBI and homeowners to work within budgetary constraints.
GBI principals carry with them years of experience. Principals work closely with the entire project team throughout the design and construction process, ensuring a quality home and excellent service for the homeowner.
Advancements in technology move at a faster and faster pace. Graham Builders utilizes the power of up to date programs to aid homeowners in project realization. These techniques streamline time, cost, and comprehension.
Revit is a 3D modeling program that intuitively and efficiently allows for changes in design and layout.
AutoCAD is the benchmark 2D drafting program and one of the pioneers in computer-aided design.
Environmental simulations, such as solar, daylighting, and heat gain studies, carbon computing, and cost savings analysis help designers to create the most efficient home in its particular microclimate.
Photorealistic renderings and animations allow homeowners to visualize their renovation or new home in striking detail, with material, landscaping, and solar simulations.
Graham Builders is able to direct some of the project processes through telecommuting with homeowners and staff, cutting down the time and cost of transportation.
The Graham Builders system has recently been updated. All files are backed up daily, and archived work is stored both on and offsite, providing stability and security for past and present projects.
