No-fee, new home consultation
Homeworks Construction is offering free private consultations on designing and building new homes and accessory dwelling units (ADUs) by appointment in the company’s conference room. At least two weeks advance notice is required to reserve the conference room, located in the Homeworks building.
“When the appointment is made, the caller is asked to provide a brief description of their project so we can have relevant materials ready to review,” says Marshall Hickox, Homeworks president and chief administrative officer. “We also may want to schedule our designers and specialists to participate, based on the needs and objectives of the potential client.”
The presentation includes a video highlighting Homeworks projects, many of them award-winners, including brand-new homes built to the owner’s specifications, whole-house remodels, multigenerational designs, additions, kitchens and baths, and ADUs, both free-standing and attached. The latest building materials are reviewed, and contracts, financing and scheduling are discussed.
“Attendees are encouraged to bring along materials — photos, videos, drawings, published articles — that relate to their project. Their ideas and comments will be welcomed in the round-the-table discussion … seeing what inspires our clients helps us plan and budget to ensure the end result meets their expectations,” Hickox says.
A past-president of the Building Industry Association of Hawaii, Hickox notes that how the consultations are structured depends on the objectives of each client and where they are in their project.
“We wanted to offer this one-on-one service for those who are just gathering information or not sure of what the process involves, as well as for those who want to get moving and take advantage of the great financing rates. If they need to add more room to an existing home or are ready to build new now, we might suggest an on-site consultation. Telephone or Zoom consultations also can be scheduled. We observe COVID-19 protocols in our offices and showroom, as well as in the field.
“While we enjoyed our many years of conducting group seminars, we found that with everyone’s building needs and living situations being so unique, it made sense to set aside time when we could really focus on the individual and information specific to their project. Why sit through a seminar that may cover many topics that are not relevant to you?” Hickox adds.
Established over two decades ago as a design-build firm, Homeworks provides “all design and construction services under one roof,” the company slogan, and has completed more than 1,000 new custom homes and remodels throughout Oahu.
Homeworks Construction has been chosen as one of Hawaii’s “Best Construction Companies” in Honolulu Star-Advertiser‘s “Hawaii’s Best” awards program for three consecutive years and was named “Builder of the Year” by the Building Industry Association of Hawaii. The National Association of Home Builders has designated the company a Built Green Professional and Aging-in-Place Specialist.
