Rocco Design + Build Services
An overview of our core services, process and frequently asked questions.
Our team will collaborate with the stakeholders of your project, from initial planning and schematics through design development, to capture your vision in a detailed set of plans. We use drawings, presentations, 3D renderings, and samples of material finishes to bring a concept to life.
With 20 years of successfully-completed projects to draw from, and a never-ending pursuit to learn the latest building trends and ecologically-mindful practices, we will ensure your project is built with integrity. Our internal team of builders and network of subcontractors are prepared, passionate, and precise.
Our team is prepared for any project, any size, any dimension. We hand-select a team of in-house talent best-suited for the nuances of each project, including architectural designers, artisans and craftspeople, construction project managers, expert tradespeople, and engineers.

Have a project in mind? Here are the next steps.
First, tell us a little bit about your dream project (description, budget, timeline) by submitting our inquiry form here. Once you submit the form, you'll be asked to schedule an initial phone call.
You'll chat with our in-house marketing rep who will review your project inquiry and ask you additional questions in order to get a better sense of what you're looking for.
If we are a good fit, we'll schedule a time to meet in person, tour your site, or have you come to our lovely office, and continue to paint a picture of what your potential project may look like.
We'll follow up from that meeting in 3 weeks with a PDF outlining a rough ballpark price, including the price of design (if needed), and other marketing materials for reference. We don't charge for any of this up front work.
Once we’ve signed a project contract with you, here is the typical process that we follow:
Architecture & Design
Architecture & Design
You may have a vision of exactly what you want. Maybe you've even drawn out a floor plan and selected the materials you like. But to make something from nothing, we're going to need a detailed set of plans, be they construction documents outlining mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural systems, complete with material schedules, or merely a quick drawing with scope notes, depending on the size and complexity of your job.
Design and architecture itself is a phased process, beginning with Concepts and ending in a Construction Document set that's strong enough to 1) estimate, 2) submit to your local jurisdiction for a permit, and 3) actually build from.
Estimating & Planning
Estimating & Planning
A refined set of architectural drawings will help any builder price out the total cost of labor, materials, and subcontractors.
The estimating and planning process includes everything from poring over your set of plans, asking a bunch of clarifying questions, gauging interest among our network of subcontractors and having them submit competitive bids, reaching out to vendors for material prices and a reality check on lead times, and assembling all these many pieces into a bid price, schedule, and a project-plan-of-attack.
Once you approve the itemized estimate and schedule, we will send you a contract for Construction.
Once we have wet ink on the page, we'll get to work! Your dedicated Project Manager will start scheduling subcontractors, order all the materials needed now, (and maybe the material that have looooong lead times) and give the go-ahead to your dedicated Site Lead to begin mobilization, or the process of assembling and transporting all our many tools and pieces of equipment needed for your site.
Once we start putting the final touches on your project, we'll have you come back for a final punch list walkthrough, pop open a bottle of champagne or ginger ale—client's pick—and start packing up. This process is called de-mobilization.
The story doesn't necessarily end here. We’ve worked with many of our clients for years, from large projects to small. Once you’re a part of the Rocco team, you’re always a part of the Rocco team!
