Experienced Commercial Contractor
Answers to Your Most Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why should I trust my medical office, urgent care establishment, dental office or veterinary hospital to Design Group MD?
Since we opened our doors in 1981, we've consistently striven to do more for our clients through visionary innovation, premier design and construction, and an old-fashioned "roll up your sleeves and get it done" attitude. We invite you to browse this site and take a look at some of the office designs we created right in the Washington D.C. metro area; we believe our work speaks for itself.
2. How are you different from other commercial contractors?
We are more than a contractor; we're a valued partner. We carefully analyze every aspect of your project and let you know if there are any obstacles that need to be addressed before we begin. Most importantly, we don't subcontract; we are a one-stop shop that offers solutions on everything from building to interior design so that you can create an office you're proud of.
3. Can I count on you to understand the latest practice-specific needs and healthcare delivery trends?
Of course. Our name says it all: Design Group MD. Unlike many general contractors, we're specialists. We've worked with many medical and dental practices throughout the Washington D.C.metro area. As a result, we understand what it takes to provide spaces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also multi-functional.
4. The last thing I want is for my practice to be disturbed by dust and noise. How do you ensure fewer interruptions?
We've developed a methodology to get you from start to finish in the shortest time possible, while recognizing there are no shortcuts to quality. We are willing to work off-peak hours and to do everything in our power to keep your practice running smoothly while we're on premises.
5. What if I have a question or need an adjustment during the process?
Right from the start, you will be working with your own manager who may be called at any time if you have a question or are seeking to change project parameters.
6. What do you do to maintain costs?
We carefully review the design to identify all important elements and evaluate alternative options. In addition, we maintain a strong sense of checks and balances that provide an early warning to project issues. We track project information, including change orders, material and labor costs, invoices and more. You can count on our integrity every step of the way.
7. Let's get to the bottom line: how much will all this cost?
That depends, of course, on the scope of your project. We do our very best to work with you and your budget parameters and we'll present you with a range of customized options. Remember that designing and constructing a medical office is ultimately an investment in your practice. We work to maximize your return on that investment through improved productivity and greater staff and patient satisfaction.
