The KPD Process
Home Builder VS Contractor
When carrying out construction work there are generally two approaches you can take to hiring someone to do the job for you. Hiring a builder or hiring a contractor.
A builder is typically someone who will join the project at the build stage, leaving the architecture and design part up to you. They may also need to subcontract certain parts of the job, such as plumbing and electrical. A contractor, on the other hand, can handle the whole project from start to finish, covering all aspects, from design to build, through the use of subcontractors at each stage.
Both options are very similar in nature, each with their unique pros and cons.
Our Unique Approach
KPD Construction is generally considered a builder, with most of the projects we undertake beginning at the build stage of the project. What makes us different from other builders is that we have an in-house team covering all stages of the build, including plumbing, carpentry and electrical. This means that we have no need for subcontracting, making the process a lot more simple, efficient and cost-effective.
However, some of our clients ask us to get involved right from the beginning. We are happy to do this too, in which case we subcontract the architectural and design work to specialists with whom we have been working very closely for many years.
Taking this approach gives us the versatility to satisfy our client’s needs no matter the situation.
