The team were very professional, I would highly recommend using them.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Design and Construct Contract?

A design and construct contract is a comprehensive agreement between a client and a builder where the builder takes on the responsibility of both designing and constructing a project. This type of contract ensures a streamlined process, as there’s a single point of contact for both the design and building phases. At Mass Constructions, we’ve found that these contracts reduce potential conflicts and miscommunication, offering homeowners peace of mind and a smoother construction experience.

What is Design and Construct?

Design and construct is an approach where a single entity, like Mass Constructions, manages both the design and construction phases of a project. Instead of having separate teams for design and building, which might lead to discrepancies in the execution, the design and construct model ensures that the initial vision aligns perfectly with the final product. This method allows us to be with you every step of the way, turning your ideas into a reality with consistency and precision.

Should I Consult an Architect or a Builder?

The choice between consulting an architect or a builder largely depends on your project’s requirements. An architect primarily focuses on the design, aesthetics, and functionality of a space, while a builder handles the actual construction. However, with the design and construct model we offer at Mass Constructions, you get the best of both worlds. We integrate the expertise of architects and builders, ensuring that your project is meticulously planned and impeccably executed. It’s a holistic approach that offers both innovative design and high-quality construction.
