where to start?

Often we are the first call a homeowner makes when they are interested in starting a remodel. Questions about likely cost, logistics and feasibility are common. We can help at this point with some ballpark costs to help set a realistic budget, and then happily recommend architects and designers to help with a construction set of plans and permitting.

With a set of plans we can provide preliminary pricing. This “rough-order-of-magnitude” look at budget is a useful decision-making tool and provides a line-item look at likely costs for each part of the project.

Leading up to construction, preconstruction work includes complete pricing with subcontractor bids, creation of an online schedule, writing a scope of work and specifications as needed, a detailed spreadsheet of decisions still to be made and also the contract.

Ventana Construction's staff of craftsmen are seasoned professionals, many with decades of experience. All Ventana staff members are hired only after a careful selection process and background check. We use a lead carpenter system, where a lead is assigned to your project and is there each day, acting as a foreman and also performing carpentry tasks. All subcontracted work is performed by a limited number of highly skilled, licensed companies whose work we know and trust. Our projects have a strict "no smoking" policy.

project goals

A successful project is equal parts quality construction and effective management. Ventana Construction’s experienced project managers and office staff provide clear communication and the tools to track project costs and stay on schedule. At weekly or bi-weekly meetings with you and your architect, we discuss budget, identify decisions to be made, and go over anticipated changes in the scope of work. It all makes for a calm, logical and predictable building process.

company goals

Our primary goal is to provide superior customer service and productivity to our clients. We accomplish that with clear and frequent communication, an online project management system for larger projects, and thorough supporting documentation for everything that we do.

In tandem, we work to provide a safe and inspiring workplace for our employees. The benefits we offer ensure we have talented, experienced, and congenial staff members who are excited to come to work.

We also feel strongly that we have a responsibility to our community, and demonstrate that by donating frequently to such diverse community groups as WestSide Baby (www.westsidebaby.org), YMCA Partners with Youth, local elementary schools, local youth sports teams, and the West Seattle Garden Tour.

Finally, we are committed to continuing education and participation in construction industry groups. We are Built Green members of the Master Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders, and participate in educational opportunities through both of those groups.
