Why do you need a Designer?

Hiring a designer to help guide you through a new home or renovation project is key to its success. It can also minimize costs in the long run and allow you to achieve the full potential of your home in Calgary.

The benefits of hiring an designer are endless. They not only help you navigate the labyrinth of design options but are able to foresee and prevent potential complications. A professional designer will save you a lot of stress, time and money. They will work tirelessly so you can achieve your desired result and will help with the following:

Zoning & Local Bylaws:

You've met with the Realtor and found that perfect property. But now, the big question: can you build what you really want to build on that little (or big) piece of paradise? Our designers will do the necessary footwork to aid you in making your final decision on whether or not to compete the purchase.

Custom design:

Your designer will help you with the creation process. At Carter Homes & Design, the design process will likely look something like this:

  • Initial Consultation & Site Visit
  • Order geodeticsurvey (if required)
  • First draft of design given for client's review and editing
  • Once final design is reached, Development Permit (DP) plans will be finalized (if DP required)
  • DP application is filed (we will make the application on your behalf, if so desired)
  • While DP application is being processed we will advance the plans to Building Permit (BP) stage drawings (working drawings) so you can start getting construction pricing
  • BP application is filed (we will make the application on your behalf, if so desired). A partial permit can usually be pulled upon BP application, allowing some of the work to be completed while awaiting full release
  • BP is released and remaining construction moves forward

Oversee and manage the project:

As a homeowner, you'll notice that overseeing a construction project is a lot of work and can cause an enormous amount of anxiety. You won't be losing your artistic input by hiring a designer. If anything, you'll be saving yourself a lot of headaches. You are not getting paid to manage your design project or deal with minor issues. A professional manager will keep your creativity flowing and the stress at bay.
