In our continuing blog series, we’ll take a look at the building phase of constructing a building. If a building is in your future, contact us today for our top-notch architectural design services, as well as construction services!


In our last blog post, we offered up tips on the design phase of your construction project. Now that you are clear on your purpose, location, materials, and budget, let’s take a look at some considerations for the actual brick and mortar part of constructing a building.


Timeline is hugely important for both residential and commercial customers of our construction firm in Newport Beach. When you put a timeframe to your construction project, oftentimes, you’ll find adjustments that need to be made or an architectural design element that needs to be changed. However, saying you want your building done in six months is like drawing straws unless you have a fundamental understanding of how long things take to physically build.

This is where having an experienced team such as DBaC in your corner will make all the difference for time frame for your Newport Beach home, office, or commercial space. You need to know how long it takes to install wiring in your home, to frame the particular size of your building, and to lay down hardwood flooring versus carpeting. DBaC promises to keep building projects on time, which means we spend a lot of time upfront making sure we know how long it will take to create your dream home.

Nowadays, there are many tools, such as computer aided design and augmented reality, to help the architectural design firm. Visualize what your home or building will look once it is finished. This greatly enhances our ability to determine possible delays as we can see things in these mediums that we just wouldn’t think of.

DBaC employs specialists in many different areas before we get to the actual first nail being placed. Our engineers will determine the soundness of the design. Our team in Newport Beach also specializes in certain industries, such as industrial, medical, government, retail, clean rooms, and so much more. While we have assembled a team of experts, you can rest assured that when we aren’t sure, or we need a second opinion, we also have amazing partnerships with our subcontractors who are experts in plumbing, electrical work, flooring, roofing, drywall, framing, and much more. When we give you a timeline, we stick to it.


An important part of the pre-building process after the design phase is getting the right permits for your property. This can entail permits to install electrical, plumbing, and mechanical, as well as the permits to build the house itself. This is an important part of the process because oftentimes there may be covenants or HOAs involved that can have building restrictions in place for your home or commercial property. DBaC recommends you clarify any questions you may have with any code before you get started.

You want to start the building permit process as soon as possible as well since this may take a little time, depending on your city or how many other building applications are in front of yours. Oftentimes, there is an application process along with a fee. You must have all of the appropriate permits before you even start building. When you partner with the best building contractor in Newport Beach, DBaC, we’ll handle this process for you.
