Our Process

Paragon is operated by a seasoned team of professionals. With principals that each average over 30 years of experience in the fields of banking, architecture, and construction. At Paragon, we believe project success begins in the planning and design phases, well before construction.

We are available to assist with all phases and aspects of your project, including planning, design, budgeting, offering advice on financing, and building. Our goal is to make the construction process simple, orderly, and fulfilling for our client. We achieve this goal through our 3 Step Process:

Planning & Design

Paragon’s team includes in-house designers and builders with over 100 years of combined experience managing complex design and build projects. Our expertise and approach provides clients with a simplified, seamless process and thus a creative and fulfilling construction experience that may otherwise seem daunting.

Paragon’s many years of design and construction experience also ensures that your home will be built to meet the requirements of the coastal environment, taking into consideration weather, climate, geotechnical factors and more.

Additionally, Paragon is well versed in the nuances of most community’s architectural review board’s requirements, which serves to expedite an otherwise length process.

In short, Paragon’s absolute attention to detail results in a more satisfying process and quality product.

Management & Control

Paragon practices open book accounting with a thorough estimating process built on an extensive database. Long before the building process is initiated, we provide a detailed estimate with over 100 line items. This same estimate provides the basis for cost control and tracking in the field. We also provide clients with regular reporting on their project’s progress. With our estimating capabilities, we are able to discuss options and alternatives to align the building program with the client’s budget.

Assuring & Fulfilling

Paragon’s long list of satisfied clients speaks to our work ethic and commitment to making the building process fulfilling. We approach each project with the perspective that each client and project is special, requiring singular commitment and focus. In order to achieve successful results, we believe a successful project begins with a few essential practices:

  • Pre-project planning meeting

  • Frequent communication, in the manner and at time most convenient to the client
  • Regular project meetings with key subcontractors and vendors
  • Timely and creative solutions for problems when they arise
  • Timely attention to post-construction and warranty issues
