Our Design-Build Process

At Claris Design⸱Build, we meticulously craft every project to align with your vision and execute it with precision and care. Our commitment to excellence is reflected in our detailed and client-centered design-build journey. Here’s how we transform your ideas into reality.


Initial Consultation

Our process starts with a deep dive into your aspirations, objectives, and constraints during an initial consultation. Our design collaborative architects bring your ideas to life with real-time sketches, capturing the essence of your vision and ensuring a shared understanding of the project’s direction.


Design Review & Planning

Following the vision sketching, we transition to meticulously exploring each design option. This stage is crucial for evaluating the practical aspects of your vision, including budget implications, project timelines, and overall design feasibility, ensuring the foundation is solid and inspired.


Design Finalization & Contracting

Once a design direction is chosen, we solidify your project’s details and move forward with contract development and negotiations. This essential phase transitions the project from concept to concrete plans, detailing everything from subcontractor roles to materials and schedule management.



We bring together a team of seasoned architects, builders, and engineers with a focus on efficiency and quality. Our design-build approach promotes seamless collaboration and communication across all project stages, ensuring your vision is executed flawlessly and efficiently.
