Syracuse Contractor Design and Build process

Syracuse contractor

Empire State Professionals, a Syracuse Contractor, understands that your time is valuable. That is why we have a very organized and detailed design & build process when working with each and every client. We’ve discovered what works best for our clients and have implemented a universal process for every project.

Design process:

Personal Meeting

Following a brief telephone introduction call, we will schedule a ‘get acquainted’ meeting to discuss ideas, details of the work to be performed, as well as review potential design options for your home renovation, or office remodelingt. A personal meeting is very important to our process. This allows us as your remodeling contractor to work accurately with you on design and budget until you are satisfied with the scope of the project.


When you are confident that we may provide you with what you are looking for, a proposal will be developed and presented. At Empire State Professionals, we provide accurate prices from the outset – another example of our open communication procedures. At this time, we will now review your detailed estimate, answer any questions you may have about the proposal and note any changes you may have to the proposed remodeling or construction project. Once a contract has been agreed upon, the preconstruction process starts to take place.


Once plans are drawn and approved and a thorough scope of work, firm cost, and length of project are prepared, we’re ready to get to work! At Empire State Professionals, all projects are carefully planned, scheduled, and financially managed in order to complete each one on time and on budget. With that pre-construction work underway including finalizing plans and obtaining building permits, your home or office renovation or new build project is well on its way to becoming a reality!

Site Preparation and Protection

Before the actual construction work begins, we will take measures to cover and protect certain areas of your home or commercial job site that adjoin the work area in order to keep them as dust and scratch free as possible throughout the project.

Build Process:

Let’s Get to Work!

Once work is underway, we’ll begin a new chapter in our relationship. It is during the first phase that demolition is taking place and you’ll be excited as you see changes daily. We invite you to a meeting to assist with the product selections. We will help you choose products that fit within your budget and complement your design. We can also suggest many locations throughout the Syracuse area where you can shop for your products at your convenience.

Weekly Meetings

On most projects, there will be a weekly meeting set up. This creates the opportunity to discuss decisions to be made, unforeseen complications and generally check in with each other to discuss how things are going.

Change Orders

When the project is underway, any change to the scope of work must be documented and approved in a change order. We don’t present surprise bills for extra work at the end of the project. Because we try to be as thorough as possible when putting our renovation proposal together, change orders are usually caused by one of three events: hidden conditions, builder inspector requests, or client changes to the original proposal.

The Final Stage

While the final finishes are being installed and the painting takes place, you’ll begin to really get excited about living in and using your brand new space!

Job Cleanup

All during the home or office construction or renovation we keep the site as neat and clean as possible. At the end of the project though, the work area will be professionally cleaned.

Project Completion

Our staff will constantly strive to earn your continued confidence, as our goal has always been to keep our customers 100% satisfied. The best way you can help us meet this goal is to let us know how we rate with you. We welcome any comments or suggestions that you might have to help us better serve our clients. Empire State Professionals offers a 1-year warranty from date of project completion and we follow up after 3 months to make sure that you are happy with the service we have offered.
