Homeowners Work with Hudepohl

A Step-by-Step Guide for Homeowners Working with Hudepohl Construction

Hudepohl Construction has the experience and the knowledge of working with homeowners in a variety of different contract/project delivery methods. In general, these methods are:

Design-Build:

  • The homeowner contacts Hudepohl concerning a potential project. Typically this contact happens when the homewner determines that an improvement or change is needed for their home (i.e. kitchen is too small and does not function properly for our growing family).
  • The owner contracts Hudepohl to help define the overall scope of work, develop a project budget, produce permit drawings, and build the project for the homeowner.
  • Throughout the project, Hudepohl maintains constant contact with the homeowners assuring a favorable outcome for the finished project, budget and schedule.
  • The benefits of the Design-Build method are compressed construction schedules as well as keeping a close watch of the construction costs.

Design-Bid-Build:

  • The homeowner and/or the architect contacts Hudepohl concerning a potential project. The project scope of work has been defined by the architect and homeowner.
  • The architect produces permit drawings that allows Hudepohl to obtain bids from the greater Cincinnati subcontractor market. Hudepohl organizes the bids into one budget and presents this budget to the homeowners.
  • Throughout the project, Hudepohl maintains constant contact with the homeowners assuring a favorable outcome for the finished project, budget and schedule.
  • The benefit of this method is that drawings are completed prior to construction starting so certain unknowns are discovered and managed prior to the bid stage. A consideration for this method of engaging Hudepohl include the potential for a lengthened project schedule.

Hudepohl Construction has worked with clients all over the Greater Cincinnati Area using both these methods.
