RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION - CUSTOM LUXURY HOMES

 

Many construction companies can build a house, but the Carlson Harris attention to detail and client desires, makes your new house a home. Our mission is to provide materials and workmanship of the highest quality, on time and on budget. We strive to build strong and trusting relationships with owners and design professionals to achieve a truly exceptional and personalized finished product.

  • TIME & COST SAVINGS

    CARLSON HARRIS GENERAL CONTRACTORS, INC.

    WHERE PARTNERING CREATES TIME AND COST SAVINGS

     

    Carlson Harris’s negotiated contracts ideally begin well before construction and create an open, fair, complete relationship…a partnership. A percentage fee is agreed upon, a contract is written, an estimated budget follows based on preliminary drawings. Refinement of the plans and specifications are made to fit the project budget and objectives. This involvement is where partnering creates time and cost savings.

     

    Carlson Harris participating in the pre-construction phase applies practical experience to the process. Virtually every critical problem can be solved before construction begins. Our extensive knowledge of building systems and their associated costs helps to determine the best methods for achieving the project’s architectural, engineering and budgetary objectives.  This involvement is where partnering creates time and cost savings.

     

    Carlson Harris obtains proposals from multiple trade contractors and suppliers in each division of work to ensure the best value and quality. Carlson Harris’s expertise is used to evaluate the proposals for cost of materials and labor, thoroughness and consistency with products and procedures appropriate for Southwest Florida. Proposals are reviewed by the entire team for selection. This involvement is where partnering creates time and cost savings.

     

    Carlson Harris puts their “in-the-field” experience to work in the construction phase. Through consistent monitoring, Carlson Harris is alerted to any potential difficulties and accordingly has the ability to make adjustments as required to maintain the project objectives. This involvement is where partnering creates time and cost savings.

  • THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

    CARLSON HARRIS GENERAL CONTRACTORS, INC.

    THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

     

    Carlson Harris operates with a team philosophy of open communication with the owner and architect in all areas including cost accounting, scheduling and trade contractor selection. This technique keeps the owner and architect totally involved, allowing all team members to fulfill their vital role as active members.

     

    Carlson Harris is not a large corporate general contractor, thus your project will receive direct, specific and consistent attention from the principals. Expect your project to be handled professionally and expeditiously, making the entire process enjoyable and the final result one of which we all will be proud.

     

    OUR ONLY PRODUCT IS QUALITY SERVICE!

        vendors to secure cost-effective quality resources.
