DESIGN-BUILD SERVICES ON THE CENTRAL COAST OF CALIFORNIA
Meticulously Designed. Beautifully Built. 100% Your Dream Home.
WHAT IS DESIGN-BUILD?
The term Design-Build was coined in 1993 by what is now the Design-Build Institute of America. The concept dates back to 40 B.C.E when the Roman writer, engineer, and architect Vitruvius wrote the original design book, Hammurabi’s Code. The handbook assumed that the responsibilities for design and construction were vested in a single individual.
The original term used then was Master Builder or Master Mason. As a Design-Build firm, we have the ability to walk you through the whole process. Taking that napkin drawing and guiding you to the fruition of your dreams is our #1 goal.

As part of our process, we can relieve the stress of obtaining a permit through the city or county. A permit is required for just about every project. The process differs by the size of the project and the city you are located in. We can empower you upfront with important information regarding the fees and requirements that will be required for your type of project, limiting any surprises and “hidden” fees. Building codes are constantly changing, which can be very frustrating for homeowners and contractors alike; because of this, we stay up to date on regulations and current code enforcement through continued education and research.
Gannage Design & Construction, as a top home remodeling company has working relationships with many technicians in all the different Building Departments on the Central Coast of California. In an effort to relieve your stress, we at Gannage Design & Construction provide the following services:
- Feasibility studies
- Permit application completion
- Building permit fee estimate
- Project submittal & processing

As you can imagine, all of this takes time. Utilizing our relationships and experience can save you months of time and frustration. Waiting is hard. Probably the hardest part of the construction process. That is why we like to use this time to get you set up on Co-Construct.
Once you have created a login for Co-Construct you will be able to start making Finish Selections. Flooring, sink faucets, paint color, countertops, tile, lighting, etc.
For every Selection, you will be given an Allowance, this is the amount that has been built into your estimate. For instance, the allowance for a kitchen faucet is $482.63, which includes tax. If you choose a faucet that is less than that, your total project cost will come down by the difference. You can go through and make all of your selections and then unmake them and redistribute your funds based on your priorities. This allows you to maintain control over the cost of your project.
As a full-service Design-Build firm, we are here to help! If you need guidance on colors, brands, or styles our in-house team can assist you and even set up appointments to visit vendors with you.
