What We Offer
G. Christianson Construction is a full service, design, bid, and build company. We use our in-house design team or outside architects to develop a plan for your dreams, which our build crew will put together. We are committed to using sustainable building materials and practices, while at the same time maintaining the quality of classic craftsmanship. With these tools we create clean, distinctive spaces that our clients will enjoy for a lifetime.
Fine workmanship requires quality components and skilled craftsmanship. We specialize in both.
Learn more about our process
During this phase we'll get acquainted to see if we are a fit for each other, diving deep into your vision and making sure that we "get it." We'll talk schedule, your role in the project and what you can expect from us. We'll be unfailingly honest - telling you what will be fun - and what won't. And we'll leave you with a complete guidance kit full of useful information to help you understand not only who we are but also how projects like yours works.
The Professional Services Agreement
Prior to entering into a Construction Agreement there will be a Professional Services Agreement (PSA). This usually includes costs for a detailed estimate that assures you a quality, completed project at a guaranteed price. The PSA will usually cover design services and sometimes demolition and discovery work if required to create a guaranteed project price for you. The PSA does not obligate you to enter into a Construction Agreement with us and you own the result of the design work covered by the PSA.
With all or most of the results of the PSA work in hand we will meet with you to talk through the project. We will take all the time you want to be comfortable and confident. We'll go over the scope of work, project plan, progress payments, timelines, logistics and concerns. You will meet your personal project manager and discuss how communications can be handled.
The Construction Agreement
We will now have all the information to provide a guaranteed price for your project, you will have signed off on the design and production plan. You've met your project manager and know who will be doing what to whom. We will provide an Agreement for our mutual signatures. We will go over and explain every deal of our straightforward Agreement.
During the building phase we will handle all the details of ordering materials, scheduling, oversite and coordination. Concurrently we will diligently keep you up to date on progress and issues. If you'd like, we can give you access to our Co-Construct portal. On Co-Construct you can see daily progress photos, schedule updates, payment information, and contract details. Our clients love how communication is efficient and organized by topic. You can use it on your computer or download the mobile app. This is great for our long distance clients!
No matter how carefully we plan your project together you will probably want to make some changes along the way, we are prepared to cheerfully accommodate any changes you want to make. Our Agreement will explain how costs associated with your changes will be handled.
During this completion phase we will meticulously inspect to ensure that craftsmanship level have been maintained throughout the project. We will do a final review meeting with you to answer any operational questions. We'll do a final clean up to the highest standards possible both within the project and anything on the property that we touched. We will set up with a document for you to list anything you might run across that wasn't done right. And finally you will benefit from our industry leading three-year warranty on our work.
What our Clients are Saying
“They took our period bathroom and built a gorgeous and accessible shower with great sensitivity to the historic details. They left no mess, and finished every detail perfectly. They adapted to small changes we suggested and made errors right. Tony, especially, was just terrific to work with and the cabinetmaker was a master!”
Ed & Karen Miller, CorvallisSee the project
“As a perfectionist, with a background in art, I clearly knew what I wanted for my remodel. G. Christianson Construction exceeded my expectations. We can’t say enough about their team especially Alejandro, Gavin, Carl, and Ben were all remarkably respectful and helpful. ”
Marisabel Gouverneur & Norm Nelson, AlbanySee the project
“I can honestly say that I wouldn't have the kitchen that I love if it weren't for Carl! His attention to details made a huge difference, he would notice things that I hadn't even noticed. They do great work and they are good people, from Carl and the office staff to all the crew.”
