From Communication to Construction Management & Occupancy

While you’ve seen your new home come to life through our Design Process, the building process makes that vision a reality. Focusing on each detail as if it was our own home, our team’s focus is twofold – communication and adherence to stringent quality standards at each step:

Bidding the Project

One of the prime opportunities during a new home build is securing competitive pricing from high-quality, reputable trade contractors. Every trades person from Regency is an expert in their field and will value-engineer building plans as if it were their own home. Many contractors prefer to work with Regency because we are well organized, present at the job site daily, and submit payment in a timely matter. We will:

  • Competitively bid our projects to all classifications of trades people who have been selected based on stringent Regency criteria for quality and value
  • Meticulously scrutinize bids and select vendors based on quality, customer service, and value expertise
  • Provide each contractor with written Regency Builders quality standards, detailed job specs, and instructions
  • Provide a final formal “budget check” that thoroughly explains all aspects of your home and ensures our inclusive pricing

Building Communications Standards

Building Communications happens throughout the remainder of our process, and is centered around completing your project on time and on budget. Typically a 4,500 square foot house takes 9 months to complete, during which we:

  • Develop a job construction schedule with clear start dates, end dates, and milestones
  • Introduce you to our easy-to-use online communication BuildTools software
  • Provide weekly job schedule and selection updates, with all of our selections being made 3 weeks in advance
  • Offer to walk through your new home together with you at various stages of construction, making sure you have the opportunity to communicate any concerns
  • Save you time by answering questions efficiently
  • Inspect your home a minimum of once per day, ensuring that all construction is done to the “Regency Standard”

Construction Management

The building process is centered around completing your project on time and on budget. We will:

  • Develop a construction schedule that identifies clear start and end dates, setting steps throughout the process
  • Answer questions efficiently and make sure we inspect your home at a minimum of once per day, ensuring that all construction is done to the “Regency Standard
  • Oversee the quality assurance of your home throughout the project
  • Provide you with digital video of all rough mechanicals and structure for future reference
  • Perform walk-throughs prior to occupancy, marking concerns that need to be addressed prior to closing
  • Energy audit and testing to ensure your new Regency home meets today’s eco-friendly standards

Walk-Throughs and Occupancy

Just after the painter has finished with the woodwork (about 2½ months prior to occupancy), we are able to give you a firm occupancy date and a schedule of completion. Our occupancy process includes:

  • “Picky walk-throughs” to ensure contractor quality
  • White glove cleaning
  • Final walk-through with you to make sure your home is as close to perfect as man and nature can provide
  • Education on your homes electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and appliances
  • Half-day with your construction manager to help hang pictures, curtains, or other needs for your new home
