(especially of a system or machine) achieving maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort or expense.
We are on a constant mission. To do the best work possible, and stretch every dollar of our clients as far as we possibly can. In our pursuit of stretching the dollar we have had a sort of epiphany.
The most common method of residential home construction, that being a general contractor hiring 10-20 different sub-contractors to build and complete a home, is incredibly wasteful and makes no effort to get the most for every dollar spent. It is simply a way for said GC to make the most money with the least amount of effort exhausted on his part.
We do not conform to this model.
Instead we choose to keep as many trades in house as possible, while maintaining our high standards of work. Think of this; every time another sub-contractor comes onto your site, his/her compensation includes factoring in all of that person/companies overhead into their wages. When each sub has their own truck/trailers, insurance, taxes, tools, fuel, etc. to pay for that all has a cummulative effect in inflating the total project cost. At the end of the day, it means you are paying anywhere from 8-16% more to get the exact same finished home because you have to cover the redundant overhead of multiple different subcontractors.
In nearly all trades, you need 1-2 skilled workers that know their craft, and 1-2 laborers to perform the more menial tasks associated with said trades. By keeping a staff of skilled tradesmen experienced in their resepective crafts we keep a vast majority of the overhead under the umbrella of a single company. This greatly improves the efficiency of our company and allows us to build you more home for every input dollar.
