Blueprints are helpful for us, the contractor, but are limited in their ability to convey aesthetic ideas. Also, we don’t expect our customers to be architects or engineers, and chances are that your daily life doesn’t involve pouring over plans. Looking at a blueprint for the first time can seem like deciphering a forgotten language. Busting out rulers and graph paper to sketch out your own design usually looks like something that should be hung on the fridge, rather than an official document on where to place the fridge.
Our 3D drawings of your renovation are the bridge between technical and tasteful design. It serves as the conduit between you having an idea, and then allowing us to bring it to life.
Let’s be honest, change orders kinda suck. They suck for you, they suck for us. Granted, we’ll change something as many times as you’d like, but obviously there’s ongoing costs when making changes to both the schedule and budget. Re-doing work simply because it’s doesn’t look the way that you had hoped is a huge disappointment. We want to avoid that altogether, and upfront.
3D modeling of your new kitchen allows you to make as many changes as you’d like, and experiment with different ideas. With these drawings, you can rearrange entire rooms, change cabinet layouts and swap out their design, get a better idea of appliance size and how they would function within your room, and create inspiration for things you may have forgotten about. All before we lift a single hammer.
The detail and visual experience within 3D drawings adds a warm feeling of assurance. Not only can you be certain; feel completely happy and confident in your design–but, nothing is lost in translation. What you have visualized in your mind is now a tangible drawing, and then we replicate that in the real world. There won’t be any mystery or surprise reveal the first time you walk into your new kitchen remodel. You’ll still be stunned, but you know exactly what you’re paying for. That piece of mind alone is what separates Alpine Contracting from other general contractors in Colorado Springs.
After you’ve taken the first step and given Alpine Contracting a call, you’ll meet with one of our Project Managers. They’ll have a conversation with you, usually at your home so that we can see the space and allow you to explain what you have in mind. We service clients all over the area, from Peregrine to Meridian Ranch, down to the Broadmoor and up to the Black Forest. While Alpine Contracting is headquartered in El Paso County, we’ve helped customers across the state.
While getting to know you and walking your home, we’ll take measurements, get an idea of materials, features, and products you want to use, and then we’ll provide an estimate. After you’ve shopped around and discovered that Alpine Contracting provides the best quality for your money, we’ll sign a contract.
From there, your design process begins. You’ll come into our showroom off of Academy to choose materials and we’ll also help you schedule meetings with local suppliers and designers. Depending on our conversations and your unique project, we’ll know which way to guide you. Beyond our own staff, we have fantastic relationships with many experts across Colorado Springs should you need a little inspiration. These designers will optimize space beyond what you knew was possible.
Once all of the tough decisions have been made and you’re excited about the design in your blueprints and architectural drawings, then we’ll begin work.
At Alpine Contracting, we pride ourselves on being forthright. Communication is the key to a successful remodel and we provide you with all of the tools to help convey your ideal renovation. There’s a reason that we’re continually named Best of the Springs Contractor by the Gazette, and it’s because our community enjoys working with us. We’re with you every step of the way, and we’re excited to take 3D drawings and bring them to life.
