Our Design Process: The Key to Your Successful Remodeling Project
Are you considering remodeling your Ann Arbor home?
Do you feel overwhelmed by all the design options available to you?
Do you want peace of mind knowing you have a design team that will bring your vision to life and get the job done right, on time, and on budget?
At Alpha Design + Build, we believe that a properly designed project is less expensive, completed more quickly, and has fewer cost overruns than a project done “on the fly.”
If you don’t know where to start, that’s where we come in!
Our Process Puts You First
Design: The design process includes clarifying your goals, understanding the existing conditions of your home and space, keeping an eye on the budget, and working some magic! We’ll help you imagine new ways to live in and love your space.
Build: We won’t just show up with a sledge hammer, knock down some walls, and then disappear for weeks at a time. We aim to complete your project quickly and with as little disruption to your life as possible.
Assure: Our job is only complete when we see your happy, smiling faces at the end! When we’re done building, we walk through a thorough punch list to make sure that every aspect of your home is exactly the way you envisioned it.
Our design process is all about listening to your concerns and addressing them before the actual remodeling begins, so you don’t have to worry about costly revisions. When you work with us, you’ll sit down one-on-one with our designers to talk not just about what you want, but also go into detail about how you actually use your space.
Is your kitchen also a homework spot? Is your basement party central for friends and family? We’ll work with you to make sure every space in your home looks great and functions the way you need it to.
When you work with our designers you’ll get:
- A digital rendering of the design so you can actually see what it will look like before work begins (and your feedback lets us make adjustments to the floor plan before materials are ordered – saving you money!)
- Risk management – we spot potential problems before they occur, which we factor into our estimate before the remodel begins
- The satisfaction of knowing you’re working with a team of experts who make their living creating beautiful, functional spaces

The deciding factor in choosing to work with Alpha was their confidence in the project and completion time line. They have done other renovations for us and it was a positive experience once again.
Debbie, Chelsea, MI
The whole team was approachable and responsive to my emails and questions. I would recommend this company for any project, big or small.
Louise, Ann Arbor, MI
We felt very comfortable when we initially visited Alpha. We felt the staff was open, honest, and wouldn't mislead us.
Jeffrey & Kim, Ypsilanti, MI
Alpha Design's priorities are happy customers!
Hugh, Ann Arbor, MI
Cy was a fabulous construction manager. Always communicated with me about any issues, arrival time, etc... So polite and kind. Mary was also so great. She's so creative!
Karen & Dave, Ann Arbor, MI
We appreciate the quality of the work by everyone who came to our house. Dan Mattes was very patient and helpful and answered all of our questions. Our new bathrooms are great!
Steve and Melissa, Ann Arbor, MI
The entire Alpha team was so nice to work with. Every person we dealt with knew their craft and the final product is an example of that.
Jonathan and Amanda, Ann Arbor, MI
We liked the people. Good working relationship. Design fit our vision. Materials and workmanship were high quality. We would definitely use you again on a future project.
Brian and Joey, Ann Arbor, MI
Ken, Mary, and Phil made the renovation process for our bathroom-laundry room pretty painless. They kept us in the loop, cleaned up at the end of the day, and always demonstrated a high level of professionalism (early/on-time, respectful, reliable, etc.) which made them stand out compared to all the other contractors we contacted.
Adrianne and Chris, Ann Arbor, MI
The new bathroom is great. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. The quality of the people working for
Alpha is a real credit to the company.
Chris and Pam, Ann Arbor, MI
When it comes to design, cost management and construction, the team at Alpha made me feel confident and reassured that my project would be completed on time and on budget.
Jeff and Mary, Ann Arbor, MI
I have nothing but good things to say about Alpha and what they did for us and our house. What Alpha says they will do, they do. Everyone I talked to had a horror story about contractors. Alpha is the anti-horror story. Alpha is that rarest of commodities – a genuinely reliable contractor.
Tony and Lisa, Ann Arbor, MI
I would highly recommend Alpha to others. The company workers are courteous, show respect and concern for the customer and demonstrate careful and fine workmanship.
Sara, Ann Arbor, MI
In our initial meeting, Alpha was very informative giving us a step-by-step on how and when things happen through the remodel process. Alpha took what seemed to us an overwhelming job and made it a very clear, step-by-step process ending in a great new kitchen!
George and Barb, Pinckney, MI
I absolutely love my house now. It looks brand new, and I have received many compliments from my neighbors (some of whom I have never spoken to before).
Kathy, Saline, MI
To the Alpha team who helped our kitchen be such a wonderful place for us to hang out, cook, and simply enjoy. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. We were most impressed with the professionalism you people displayed while working with us. Thank you.
Fred and Barbara, Ann Arbor, MI
We had Alpha build a two-story addition on our 1927 Dutch Colonial house. The design team at Alpha did such a good job of matching the style of the house that people who see it now believe it was all part of the original house.
