Whether you are looking to make small improvements or completely renovate your home, we can help you reach your goals while staying within your budget. Our goal is to help you create the home of your dreams and make the process easy. Our excellent reputation, extensive experience, and long list of satisfied clients attest to our superior attention to detail, timely delivery, honesty and integrity. Contemporary Design provides kitchen and bath remodeling and full-apartment renovation services for NYC Manhattan residents living on the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Midtown, Chelsea, Gramercy Park, Greenwich Village, Soho, Tribeca, including the Riverdale area. Whether you're remodeling or just improving one part of your home, our seasoned professionals will work with you to find solutions and guide you through the process, while offering you the best possible value. We can help you pick the best materials for your project and help you make choices that are both aesthetically pleasing and cost-effective. Let us educate you on the differences between materials, so you can make an educated choice about the look, performance, and the cost. We're experienced in working with co-op boards and building management, with their requirements and paperwork���architectural drawings, building insurance, and required licenses���and we'll handle everything for you. We're fully licensed and insured, so you'll have peace of mind, knowing that your project will not be hampered by problems beyond your control. How do we Estimate the cost of a project? At Contemporary design, we will help you create a plan and a design that reflects your needs and respects your budget, so that your new kitchen, bathroom or home improvement project is exactly what you want for exactly how much you want to spend. How do we bid? We prefer to "negotiate" contracts with owners. We provide cost consultation once we are the preferred contractor for the job, rather than offer bids on speculation. Detailed estimating can take many hours. We spend time evaluating and discussing the project with you, so that once we submit our bid, you can be sure that we've submitted a well thought out proposal. We work with owners from the very beginning of a project. On large projects, we work very closely with your architect or designer as well. After an initial telephone conversation, an appointment is made to view the project. At that meeting, which is free of charge, we have a thorough discussion about the full scope of work and the time frame to decide if the project would be mutually beneficial. If it is decided that we should go ahead, we will then begin the pre-construction process and pre-construction services. Contemporary Design will provide pre-construction services during the design stage of a project; this includes design, estimates and schedules, suggestions on materials, construction detail consultation and more. How do we estimate the cost? We provide estimates for the cost of the work. Much of our work is a "fixed price," meaning that we negotiate a fixed contract amount with the client before starting a job. Our focus is on helping our clients get the best value, not necessarily the lowest price. As we learn your priorities, we fine-tune our recommendations regarding subcontractors, materials, and methods to help you and your designers realize the greatest satisfaction for their budget. While we may not suggest the lowest initial budget, we are confident that we provide excellent value in the long run. Our focus is to meet your goals within your budget. How do we organize and supervise the work? We sometimes subcontract our specialized work, such as plumbing, electrical, heating, drywall, tile, etc. This saves our clients time and money, since we could not possibly have the in-house expertise and equipment available. Our subcontractors have worked with us for many years and have become part of our extended "family." When it comes to a timeline for your project, Contemporary Design will provide you with a schedule for virtually every phase of the project. These schedules list each item in the scope of work, from protection to punch list, with corresponding dates. A schedule is included in all of our construction contracts, allowing the owner to monitor job progress with ease.
