Our belief has always been that the satisfaction of our current clientele is the key to our future prosperity. We fill a void that few companies can fill. We are an award winning design company who believes that "The design" of the project is as important to our team as it is to our clients. We are in the unique position of not only being able to design the physical site and structure, but to design the interior and fit and finish as well. Unlike most companies, Scott Michael, employs most of the men performing the work on our projects. Many of our men have been with us for over fifteen years, This has given us the ability to control cost, quality and time, three of the most important elements in any building project.
We have a long list of satisfied customers who are willing to give a personal witness to the experience they have had working with us. Our most impressive testimonial is that we have several repeat clients, building up to five times for one family.
Our goal, simple: be the best, give the most, building time tested relationships as we build your project.
We believe we offer a service no one else offers. Because we are both the designers and builders, we are able to produce a preliminary design of the project, prepare a cost analysis, and before spending any additional money on drawings, guarantee our preliminary pricing within 10%. This protects you and helps you understand the budget in a very detailed way enabling you to make educated decisions on varied options and finishes for your project. This is a very valuable service. Many times we are asked to bid on a set of FINAL plans prepared by another company only to find that the project is over budget. We believe that our many years of design expertise coupled with our extensive construction experience sets us apart.
Scott-Michael (formally Island Design Build Corp) was founded in 1989. It began strictly as a design firm but I quickly realized that there was a great need for qualified contractors who acted in a professional manner and performed quality work. My father was a builder and since I had been on a construction site as long as I can remember, I decided to start building the projects I was designing.
Throughout my college years, I won every award and competition I entered. I graduated number one in my class and upon graduation immediately began working for a local Architect. After 3 1/2 years with this firm, I resigned my position as head project designer and production manager and started my own company, Island Design Build Corp.
After several years of building, I realized that the next issue to overcome was quality control and scheduling issues with the subcontractors. Therefore, I decided to hire my own employees and have since built a talented staff. Many employees have been with me over 15 years, guaranteeing the same quality finish on each and every job. We employ our own framers, trimmers, painters, masons, and machine operators.
