Our Process

Step 1 - Initial Quote

You’ve decided it's time for changes around the house and have inquired about our custom solution options. Our first step is to schedule an on-site meeting to go over the finite details, take pictures and measurements; this ensures we can be accurate with our detailed quote. A rough floor plan sketch is included at this point. Information will identify additional trades (if required), material recommendations plus more.

Step 2 - Quote Revisions & Approvals

You have selected Catalyst as the renovation team you’d like to work with and have approved the initial estimate. We begin discussing it further with you to identify if any revisions or additions to the project scope are required. This may involve changing layouts, upgrading your lighting, or removal of a portion of the work in order to come in on budget. We will also meet with you and the applicable trades to make selections on your finishes – flooring, cabinets, paint, etc.

Step 3 - Contract Signing & Scheduling

The next step is formalizing the estimate and creating a contract for your job. The contract will stipulate a work schedule (start and completion dates), the payment schedule, among other items. With your approval, we will pass this information to our construction project manager to get things started!

Step 4 - Kick-Off Meeting

Our sales and our construction management teams will meet with you at the jobsite to review the project and to address any outstanding questions and concerns anyone may have. Included with this is a final schedule plus any other unique features that may be relevant to your project.

Step 5 - Build

Construction begins! This is an exciting time for everyone. We prep the site for demolition (when applicable) and put the project into motion. Through our online construction management software, you are kept in the loop with daily schedule updates, completion milestones, and a listing of dates for any decisions we need from you.

Step 6 - Completion

With construction complete, we give your space a final clean and walk-through the work with you. Minor touch ups and repairs will be noted and completed and then – and then it’s all yours to enjoy!
