The HDC Selections Assist Experience

Design Your Own Space With A Guided Outline from the HDC Design Staff

This option is available for projects that are considered to be pull and replace kitchens and bathrooms or new basements. Pull and replace is exactly as it sounds. It is a refresh of the existing layout with no structural changes. Additionally, this option works for clients that have their own architects and designers. Measurements and a design hand-off meeting will be held to review your project and needs. A design staff member will meet with you at our showroom to review your design layout and present cabinet options including colors and door styles. You will be provided a list of remaining items needed to be chosen for your space as well as a list of vendors from which to review options. Samples can be provided upon request.

You will be responsible for providing chosen finishes & selections to HDC. Once received, a designer will update your design packet for final approval. An HDC design staff member will be checking in bi-weekly to ensure due dates are met to keep your project moving forward and on time.

Selections Assist Timeline | 6 Weeks

(6-week timing does not take into account the time to schedule from consultation to the design-hand-off meeting as this is highly dependent on all party's availability and the current HDC pipeline)

Initial Consultation

An HDC project consultant meets with the prospective client virtually or in their home to see the space, discuss the general scope of the project being considered, and to decide if we are a good fit for the project/client needs. 

Timing: 2 - 3 business days

Meeting Outcomes: Rough range estimate for the proposed project. Design fees communicated. Next steps are outlined.

Design Under Contract

If the client decides to move forward with the selection assist option, there is a design fee. A contract is drawn up, signed and the payment is made to kick-off the process.

Timing: Upon agreement

Design Hand-Off

The client will meet the assigned design team member for the project along with the HDC project consultant, design team manager and the HDC estimator at the project space.

Timing: 2 weeks

Layout Review Meeting

Client will meet at the showroom with the design representative to review and discuss cabinet options. Customers can take samples of color/stain blocks, cabinet door styles, and countertops.

A due date for selections is provided to the client and the designer will follow up 2x/week to ensure the due date is met.

Timing: 2 weeks

Meeting Outcomes: Plan layout reviewed. Selection resources & due dates provided.

How Much Will Your Kitchen Remodel Cost? 

While no two projects are alike, our free pricing guide will help you know what to expect when meeting with contractors to discuss your project. At Hogan Design & Construction, we will continually provide you with accurate estimates throughout the design process and establish a fixed price before construction begins.
