When you work with CSIRA Design Build Inc. on building your dream home, you can expect to:

Get Responses Quickly

Whether it’s to set up an initial meeting, send over a proposal, or answer a question, you can always expect to hear from us in a timely manner.

Know Your Costs Upfront

Before any plans are drawn, we work with you to nail down a preliminary budget, to make sure everyone is on the same page from the get go.

Avoid Surprise Expenses

There are always unexpected costs in any construction project, due to things that arise during the building process. To avoid surprises down the road, we provide regular budget updates as the planning process progresses.

Have One Point Of Contact

You will be assigned your own project manager, who will be your single point of contact for an easier communication process. They’ll update you daily, as well as make sure the project stays on schedule.

Be Treated Like Family

You and your business is important to us, and we treat every aspect of the job with the respect it deserves. As a client of CSIRA Design Build Inc., you become a part of our family.

How the process works

First, we set up a free initial consultation at your property or our office. An estimator and designer (if required) will review your project in-depth with you. After, they’ll make some make recommendations based on your vision.

Next, an estimator will prepare a preliminary budget, based off of the initial consultation.

Then a formal contract will be submitted, assuming the budget is in line with your expectations.

If the plans for your property have already been completed by your architect/designer, we will commence construction. However, if you require architectural design as part of your project, then conceptual plans will be drafted.

Once the first round of conceptual plans are completed, we will meet to discuss what you like/dislike about the plans.

After the plans are finalized, they will be prepared for submission to the city of Laguna Beach.

After the city approves the architectural plans, an engineer is hired to draw and submit plans.

Once plans are reviewed by the city (and corrected if necessary), we will pull building permits and start construction.

During the entire build process, there will be constant communication between you, our project manager and our designer (unless separate design firm is utilized). Together, you’ll be going over updates, decision-making and coordination regularly.

Once your construction project has completed, there will be a warranty phase. Should any defects arise during this time period, we’ll remedy them quickly.

You could decide to work with a general contractor who is unfamiliar with the local regulation, and is heavily reliant on subcontractors to get the job done.

Or you could schedule a free consultation and learn how we can help you start off your construction project on the right foot, before you even break ground.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will our project require design review?
Design review is usually required when the exterior of the building is altered. That being said, it is possible to do some exterior modifications, such as replacing doors or windows in existing locations, or applying new finishes, without the need for a design review.
Can you work with our architect/designer?
We work with many designers and architects. We’d be happy to work with your chosen architect/designer on your project.
What should we do if our designs weren’t approved?
Typically, this will be either a result of neighborhood disapproval that the design review board agrees with, or the board ruling in favor of not approving your plan for their stated reasons. Concerns will be clearly written up in the minutes. Then, these concerns will be addressed at a meeting with our team. A revised plan will be proposed on the soonest docket date available after the plans are revised and agreed upon.
Do we need a building permit?
Yes, almost all construction projects in Laguna Beach require a building permit, even for something as small as a fence, or bathroom remodel.
