Our Design-Build Process

Why a Contractor's Remodeling Process Matters

You've started your research, and you have a short list of contractors. How do you choose one that will give you a great experience?

We believe a client's experience—positive or negative—can usually be traced back to the process used for project delivery. “Project delivery” refers to the methods implemented to plan, design, and construct your remodeling project.

If you value a low-stress remodeling experience, start by choosing a method of project delivery that maximizes up-front planning and minimizes unpleasant surprises. McLennan's process is based on the Design-Build method of project delivery, which is proven to provide the smoothest, most efficient and rewarding experience for client and contractor alike.
