From Start To Finish
A large home improvement project can be a very stressful undertaking. Bel Air Construction’s proven process alleviates many of the common stresses of remodeling and ensures that you have clear communication from start to finish. We are committed to delivering both a distinctive design and a distinctive remodeling experience.
Here is a general idea of what to expect when working with Bel Air Construction:
Project Discovery Consultation
Our process starts with a project discovery consultation. This might be a phone call, a video call or a visit to our showroom. The intent of this consultation is for you to share the scope of your project, why you are thinking about having it done and your thoughts and ideas for the envisioned project. Michael’s job on the call is to listen to your unique needs and ideas so he can determine next steps and marshal the right resources.
Most often the next step is an in-home visit. Members of the Bel Air Construction team will meet with you in your home for a detailed discussion of the project. Photos and measurements will be taken. Feasibility of completing the project as well as the general budget will be discussed.
During this stage, the Bel Air Construction team organizes all of the details of your project. Using the collected measurements and photos we develop the design(s) for your project. You’ll have the opportunity to visit our Design Center/Showroom so you can participate in the process.
During these meetings, Bel Air Construction presents the initial design and project specifications. 3D computer-generated images are shown at this time. We review the various options for your project as well as corresponding budgets. We discuss the products that will be used and the options available with those products. You are an active participant in these meetings. Your reactions to the proposed design can be adjusted, often on the spot.
The Role of the Designer – Your Design Sherpa

Finalizing the Project
At this stage, we finalize the design with you and you approve all of the materials. In addition, you will make product selections (colors, styles, sizes, etc.). Once we reach this point, all of the major decisions have been made and we feel great about the design and the plan for the project.
Behind the Scenes Preparation
After the project decisions have been finalized, your job is turned over to a Project Manager who will see the job through to completion. All of the materials are ordered and the specifications are gone over in detail in meetings between the Design Team and the Project Manager.
Shortly before the work begins on your home, the Project Designer and Project Manager will meet with you at your home and do a brief “walk-through” to confirm the plan for the project. We will clarify any of your scheduling questions and other general concerns about the process. During this meeting you will also be shown how to access the project schedule. At this point, the Project Manager takes over as your point of contact for the completion of the project.

Completion of the Project
Shortly after the pre-construction conference, work will begin on your home. Schedules and deliveries have already been planned out in detail to ensure that the job progresses as seamlessly as possible. The Project Manager will communicate with you consistently to inform you of the progress of the job and any unforeseen issues that might come up. The finished product is a home renovation that will enhance your enjoyment of your home.
