Collier Ostrom, Inc. provides a multitude of basic and specialized services. Our specialists will be there to guide you from the initial consultation through cost evaluation, planning and the construction process itself.
Remodeling remains our specialty, and our 25-plus years' experience has given us valuable and unique insight. We understand the importance of keeping our clients involved in the remodeling process and soliciting their feedback. Our experience has also taught us how to develop a more efficient construction approach that encompasses proper planning, education and the innovative use of technologies and materials. The final product is guaranteed to be of exceptional craftsmanship, economical by design and responsive to our client's needs.
Contractors have more than just a responsibility to build beautiful homes --
they're also responsible for maintaining a beautiful environment. Collier Ostrom
is certified by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry in Green
Building, a construction approach that reduces waste and minimizes the environmental
impact of remodeling projects. As specialists in Green Building, we strive to
incorporate sustainable resources, conserve building materials through strategic
design, and reduce any toxic byproducts in our work. We also ensure that our
projects do not disrupt the surrounding environments, and by taking advantage
of natural conditions, we reduce utility costs and ensure that our finished projects
blend in with local landscapes.
We encourage you to visit our Resources page to learn more about Green Building.
In most construction projects, standard competitive bidding
- in which the contractor with the lowest bid is hired - can be a recipe for
disaster. Oftentimes homeowners realize too late that the cheapest contractor
isn't the best one. By then, they find themselves frustrated by needless cost
overruns, substandard workmanship and inferior materials. Price Planning is
the alternative to this outdated system. Through Price Planning we work jointly
with the designer and homeowner to achieve a balance between needs and economics.
At Collier Ostrom, Inc. we scrutinize architectural plans with the client's budget
in mind. We estimate costs and analyze various factors to determine where costs
can be reduced without compromising the integrity of a project. We may also
recommend alternative materials that maintain the same visual or structural
value and suggest streamlined or modified building processes to save time.
The goal is to give the client a cost-effective solution that doesn't
sacrifice the overall quality of the project.
Collier Ostrom, Inc. provides more than just contractor
services -- we're also part of a strategic partnership with local architects
and designers. With our Design Build network, you can be assured that your
contractor is working closely with other partners to provide the highest-value
services while maintaining strict budget controls. By coordinating our work
with the architect or designer, Collier Ostrom, Inc.'s design team avoids
unnecessary risks and expenses that normally hinder the remodeling process.
