The Ramos Way

At Ramos Companies, we are dedicated to making sure that your every need is addressed during the construction process. We provide our customers with a concierge level of service before, during, and after the construction process. Ramos Design Build uses a proprietary 12-step construction process to deliver each of our homes in a consistent and professional manner, regardless of the project's size.

We work to understand your needs and develop your vision.

The first step in our collaborative building process is to discuss your needs, understand your lifestyle, and define a vision. We develop a vision brief, define a timeline, and educate you on our 12-step engagement process. A clear vision provides a basis to begin the design process.

Initial

Consultation

Our team meets with you to discuss your needs, understand your lifestyle, and determine your vision.

Vision Brief, Timeline, References, & FAQ's

We document your vision and provide education on how to approach the design process.

Letter of Engagement & Deposit

We provide a Letter of Engagement, and collect an initial deposit to officially begin the design process.

 
Engage
We believe that building a family home must start on a firm foundation

The second step in the process is to research the construction site, design the project, and establish a detailed budget. We assemble a team consisting of an Architect, Designer, and any needed Contractors that work in conjunction to ensure that every detail is addressed. Our proprietary hybrid construction agreements provide a layer of transparency, flexibility, and comfort to the process.

Preliminary plan, design, & surveys

Our cross-functional team works together to design the home, perform soil studies, BTT surveys, and otherwise prepare for construction

Specifications &

Cost Estimate

The design is then used to create a detailed construction plan that includes materials, budgets, and timelines.

Final contract, timeline, & financing

We develop the final contract and provide you with financial options to begin construction.

Executing the plan and building the home

The third step in our process encompasses the tasks necessary to build and finish the home. We help you select the finishes, pull permits, build the structure, integrate mechanicals, and finish the interior. These are the special details that make the home unique and specific to your family's needs. We provide you with an online construction portal so that you are informed on each detail throughout the process. On remodel projects, we leverage our Construction Clean Process that uses Visqueen, HEPA filters, and negative pressure air to ensure that your home remains clean through the project.

Architectural construction docs

We create blueprints, establish selection, schedule, and pull the necessary permits for construction.

Finally, we continue the relationship built through the construction process by inviting you to one of our Ramos Signature Home Owner Dinners.
