Are you looking to build a new home? The process can be daunting, especially if you’re going through it for the first time. ArcturusHD acts as your advocate, coach, and guide, helping you to set priorities, identify designers and builders, and make the thousands of decisions that will result in the home of your dreams. Our services include:
1. Pre-design consulting: working with you to develop a budget and a preliminary program. These items will create a discipline and direction for the project as you begin meeting and working with designers and builders.
2. Energy modeling and assessment: design decisions will have dramatic effects on the comfort and efficiency of your home. We can model a preliminary design and, where appropriate, make changes that will improve the overall performance and cost of building, maintaining and operating your home.
3. Designer and Contractor selection: need help or advice in choosing your architect? Your builder? Other team members? Take advantage of our experience to assemble the right team for your project.
