Building Value Into Your Project

When you build a home or remodel a kitchen with Donatelli Builders, long before construction ever starts, we spend time with you to understand your goals. Then we work with the architect as designs are drawn to analyze the details of your project to identify and resolve issues upfront. This process is called “value engineering” and some builders don’t do this analysis but identify issues as they go. We feel that it is incredibly important because it prevents time delays and cost overruns. More importantly, it ensures that the goals that are most important to you are achieved, and money is spent where you will get the most benefit.

Communication and Accountability Brings Peace of Mind

The most important piece of any large-scale project is communication and being able to have confidence in what you are told. Chris Donatelli firmly understands this. That is why he is your one point of contact throughout your project. His team is accountable to him, and he is solely accountable to you. He makes sure that everything gets done as agreed on time and on budget. Throughout your project he provides regular updates, so you always know the status of your project. Once you have experienced his methodology and proven processes you will have peace of mind knowing Chris is at the helm.
