We offer design services with preferred architects that understand budget and are disciplined to work within that budget. Skookom manages this process and is heavily involved in design and budget decisions right from the start. We can manage all consultants involved from concept stage to building approval on your behalf.
As a team we take a collaborative approach when designing your home, to meet your needs and budget, not ours. By the end of this process we know the building intimately and have ironed out most of the potential issues. This is a huge benefit delivering efficiencies before we commence onsite.
Skookom Light is a division of Skookom which features the high-quality craftsmanship and finishes found in our architectural builds and delivers them to you via our own, in-house, Skookom designed homes.
These creations are designed to incorporate energy efficient, sustainable, and passive elements and are collaborative works of the entire Skookom team, meaning that they embody years of experience in quality building and have received input from a wide range of trades and backgrounds.
With an emphasis on operational efficiency, budget and scope control, client pathways and a step by step delivery process, building through Skookom Light provides you with peace of mind and a clear and open experience in the delivery of your home.
Skookom Light customers may be eligible for engagement fee deposits to be reimbursed upon contract signing – receiving exceptional value in the form of free working drawings, detailed estimates and planning and approvals administration.
We present a fixed price proposal for this pre-construction/design phase which we break down into manageable stages. You can stop at any of these stages, we do not lock you in.
At the end of this process if you decide not to proceed with Skookom as your builder, you take ownership of the intellectual property you have received and paid for along the way that has enabled you to make informed decisions. This is clearly stated in our agreement at the beginning.
Our projects usually come through word of mouth, recommendations from previous clients. Although we prefer to be involved early in the design process we do take on projects which have approvals in place.
We do not competitively tender, therefore our engagement with clients and architects is as preferred builder. This enables us to solidly commit to your project subject to scope and feasibility to deliver you actual realistic costings through transparent comprehensive estimates that helps you make informed decisions.
Designed in-house with Skookom, we work collaboratively alongside you to see your custom designed home become a reality. We present a fixed price proposal for this pre-construction/design phase which we break down into manageable stages. You can stop at any of these stages, we do not lock you in.
This pathway can offer you design cost savings of up to $40,000-$60,000 or more and in no way compromises on the exceptional attention to detail and dedication to quality for which Skookom is known.
