One of the most exciting aspects of custom homes is that you’re in control the building process every step of the way. That means that your decisions get into the build, from the initial due diligence, to planning, interior build out and finishing. The interior and exterior building represent your personal preferences and decisions.
At GIS International, our project managers are onsite regularly, and keenly aware of the daily goings on at the jobsite. In addition, our unique project controls involve both budget constraints and an overlapping oversight from a scheduling and process standpoint. This triple-point control system (boots on the ground oversight, budget controls, and scheduling) help us keep our hand on the pulse and know precisely what is occurring on each jobsite on any given day. Nobody can prevent all errors or mistakes, but our internal control methods allow us to prevent most of them, and quickly fix anything that needs attention.
When we are involved in the preparations then we know the building plans inside and out. We know what you want for your new home or building, including the layout design and the materials you want for your lifestyle, including the cabinets, flooring, the sinks, windows, the walls, paint, and appliances.
It is common for building site managers to leave the hourly work up to their laborers, and for them to show up every week or two to check in on the project. That’s not what you get with GIS.
Trying to decide where to build? GIS is unique among custom builders in that we also have real estate brokers as part of our team. Choosing where to build requires many decisions. Which neighborhood is best for you? What size lot do you need in order to build the house you’re picturing? Do you want a spectacular view? Our realtors can help you sort through all these considerations. Then, when you find a potential site, GIS will perform a thorough feasibility study. Taking into account governmental and deed restrictions, this study determines if a particular lot is ideal for your dream home.
GIS has grown up in this industry – three generations and counting – and have proven ourselves on projects both locally and internationally. We possess the experience and ability to seamlessly integrate the various phases of the construction process and successfully transform an idea into a reality.
