Our team brings 50 years of combined experience and a passion for building to every project, ensuring that you're in good hands every step of the way.
Our 8--Step Process
Step 01

Conceptual Design

You and your selected team of architects will tap into your creativity and put it all out on paper to begin. Together you will flesh out a preliminary rough draft of your vision for both your floor plan and your home exterior. The intention is for this to reflect your vision, needs, lifestyle, desired aesthetic, size, space and layout.


Our Process

Step 02

Preliminary Estimate

Using the conceptual design, we will provide a rough cost estimate for your home using our detailed database of historical project costs while also taking into consideration present day material and labor pricing and availability. This will provide us with a good idea how closely your project aligns with your budget and will guide us through the next step of the architectural  design phase.

Step 03

Finalized Plans & Engineered Drawings

At this stage of our collaboration we will continue working with you and your architectural team to finalize plans and design. With our valuable construction knowledge and expertise we can provide insight to best practices and alternative cost saving options before the plans are finalized. We will ensure that any construction budgetary issues are addressed at this stage to avoid costly revision later.

Step 04

In Depth Budget

Once plans have been finalized, we will work diligently to compile a comprehensive and accurate budget for your home.Our cost estimators will study the plans and specs, then gather bids and thoroughly review them. We have a wide network of high value contractors/subcontractors in order to produce the most accurate budget possible. We take everything into consideration at this stage to ensure there are no holes in the budget. This will allow us to have a smoother construction process and no surprises for our valued customers.

Step 05

Permits & Scheduling Phase

This is where it begins to feel real! If you choose us as your builders, our team will send your plans through to HOA approval and city permits processes. We will create a detailed construction schedule for your home, guide you through the material selections and continue to refine the budget as each piece is selected and finalized.

Step 06


This is when things get real! During this phase you start to see your dream come alive as your home truly takes shape. In the field, our construction managers mobilize, coordinate, and supervise our qualified team of vendors and subcontractors to guide your home toward timely completion. Our project managers provide organized and accurate budget monitoring, selection coordination, and sub agreement management. During construction, you’re able to log in to our client portal at any time to see your home’s budget, schedule, selections, and progress photos.

Step 07

Walk-Through, Final Inspections 

After the work is complete, third-party inspectors will thoroughly check the house to ensure everything is up-to-code and finished according to the contract.Once they give us the nod, it is time for you to do a walk-through with us. This is the magical moment in the whole journey! You have invested time, effort, and money into this project. We have poured our hearts into it. Together, we get to step back and take it all in!

Step 08

Move-In Day

Finally, you will move in and get to know your new home. Settle in, get comfortable, and know that you finished your hard work, but ours is not. The Westgate Way does not end, we hand you the keys.
