Design-Build Process

Let’s make a plan (typically a few weeks)

Starting with a free consultation, we learn about you, your family and your dreams. Together, we find a common ground between potential and price. Learn quickly about how the City’s zoning and building regulations may affect your program and how lending may help.


Work with one team from conceptualization through completion. We handle design, permitting and all construction. In short, everything.

Work with us to inspire (typically a few weeks to a few months)

Visualize every piece of marble and oak floorboard during the design phase. Capture every aspect of your home before it’s built. By using state-of-the-art design and visualization tools, Aforma is able to produce inspiring renderings quickly.

Pre-construction (2 months)

Aforma consolidates permitting and construction services, simplifying the workflow and reducing risk. Eliminate stress managing over-budget designers, coordinating engineering, wrangling permitting delays and finding reliable contractors and subcontractors. Focus on life while we focus on project delivery.

  • *Land use adjustment if required

  • Budget and Schedule

Construction (typically a few months to a year)

Your project is built on site by Aforma’s staff and preferred subcontractors, an alliance of honest local professionals who want to craft something genuinely great. Our designers work hand-in-hand with our in-house construction staff to deliver your project to exacting specifications. Follow our progress with a cloud-based dashboard, providing an up-to-the-minute construction schedule and budget.

Regularly Scheduled Maintenance

Our structures resist the elements in beautiful ways and we never leave your side even after our services are rendered. Aforma can provide comprehensive maintenance contracts, scheduled in advance. Like a friendly doctor or a favorite teacher, your builder can continue to be part of the team.
