The House Designers, Fypon

Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) September 26, 2012

A recent press release by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) states that new home construction rose 2.3 percent nationally to an adjusted annual rate of 750,000 units in August. New figures released from HUD and the U.S. Census Bureau confirm this increase was fueled entirely by gains in the single-family sector, where new construction accelerated in every region for a combined 5.5 percent gain to 535,000 units, the fastest growth in two years.

“Builders across the country have been reporting noticeable improvement in the number of serious buyers who are in the market for a new home, and today’s report shows that this is translating to some welcome gains in construction activity,” said Barry Rutenberg, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in a recent press release. “While there is still plenty of room for improvement, it’s encouraging to see this continuing trend that is spurring much-needed job growth.”

According to The House Designers, a leading provider of online stock house plans, house plan sales continued to increase by 10% each month over 2011. The top 5 states for house plan sales in 2012 are the same as in 2011 and include Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Georgia.

“The pace of overall housing production has been edging gradually upward all year as consumers become more confident in their local housing markets, and the latest data are further evidence that the housing recovery is here to stay,” added NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe. “That said, the pace of this recovery continues to be constrained by various hurdles, including a tough lending environment, inaccurate appraisals and more recently, rising prices on key building materials.”

The House Designers reports that many of their house plans customers originally considered purchasing an existing home, but were often surprised to find that building a new home was more affordable. offers over 6,000 house plans in a wide variety of sizes and architectural styles, which can all be customized at a fraction of the cost of having an architect create a custom home design.

While the average size of a home is now 2,100-2,500 square feet, consumers still demand an open/flexible floor plan with all the same amenities of a much larger home plan, said Tammy Crosby, Chief Operating Officer of The House Designers. With the cost to operate and maintain at the top of consumers concerns, weve found a big increase in sales in our exclusive Green/ENERGY STAR

Announcement: The Rising Architecture Billings Index (ABI) Indicates Increased Construction to Come in the Next Year

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2012

The latest data from the U.S. Architecture Billings Index (ABI) has been released and it points to good news for construction businesses and real estate developers. In August, this leading construction indicator rose by 1.5 points, indicating a possible recovery in the U.S. construction sector. This report is good news for every business tied to the construction industry, from the architects that plan the projects, to builders who oversee the construction, to the carpet, door and window, flooring and other industries who provide materials for construction.

The ABI now stands at 50.2, which is the best level over the past 5 months. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has stated that any reading over 50 indicates good demand for architect services. While this is certainly good news for the countrys architects, it is also good news for the construction industry, since high ABI readings often precede strong growth in the construction sector over the following 12 months.

Concerns have been raised regarding the ability of the architecture industry to meet the new demand being indicated. Many architects became unemployed during the downturn, and some wonder if those remaining in the industry will be able to meet increasing demand from new construction projects. Fortunately, a separate study found that the demands for new projects are being met. This means growth will continue and strengthen without being derailed by constraints in the design phase of construction.

Looking more closely at industry sectors, multi-family residential buildings are a clear leader, followed by commercial and institutional building projects. The data is an encouraging indicator for economic growth.

Those best positioned to take advantage in this upswing in construction will be the builders and developers who have access to the necessary capital to fund their projects. Because banks are still unwilling to loan due to issues in the capital markets, more developers and builders are turning to lending experts who can get find capital sources. Sunovis Financial is just such a lending organization. The company has an experienced team of banking and real estate professionals.

Sunovis Financial’s motto is to rebuild the U.S. economy, one business and one loan at a time. The team of professionals find access to capital for borrowers, and the company specializes in SBA loans as well.

Innovative Design and Building Services Off-Site Construction Methods Capitalize on Speed and Cost Efficiencies for Sturgis Charter School project In Hyannis, Mass.

(PRWEB) October 01, 2012

Interior and exterior finishing work is being completed on Sturgis Charter Schools new West Campus building. The 45,000 square foot building was constructed off-site at Innovative Design and Building Services (IDBS) Liverpool, Pa., facility and transported to the building site in Hyannis, Mass. A hybrid of on-site and off-site construction methods were employed allowing for tall ceiling heights and capitalizing on off-site efficiencies. Utilizing off-site techniques for the majority of the project, along with IDBS proprietary systems and processes, also aided in controlling the overall project costs.

The completion of the two-story structure, which includes numerous classrooms, a faculty lounge, labs, a library, office spaces, and an amphitheater-like seating space, doubles the schools capacity of 400 to over 800 students. Opening in the fall of 2012, the school will continue to offer an International Baccalaureate diploma which focuses on teaching students to be caring, reflective and open-minded.

Planning for the west campus began in November of 2009, but progress stalled. The momentum picked up when IDBS modular construction method was introduced as a solution. Off-site construction means less time, less overhead and less waste, which gave Sturgis Charter Schools reduced and fixed construction costs needed to complete the project.

The initial design was reviewed and adjusted to maximize the efficiencies of off-site construction. Innovative solutions were utilized to achieve larger, open rooms with high ceilings. All 96 building sections, constructed to meet the wind loads and hurricane requirements needed for the seaside school, were delivered and erected by IDBS crew in just 3 weeks. Onsite crews followed behind with HVAC, sprinklers, and completing the interior and exterior finishes.

Minimize site disruption with off-site construction

Off-site construction is well suited for classrooms and educational buildings. Schools can be designed and constructed to meet most architectural and customer specifications. By utilizing off-site methods, the disruption at the building site is limited, resulting in cleaner, safer environments for teachers and students. In most case, on-site work can be performed during summer sessions, further reducing the impact on the existing campus.

The IDBS construction process utilizes a myriad of off-site construction techniques. This unique system provides the advantages of quality-based, climate-controlled construction methods that can be customized to suit a wide variety of regional styles. The proprietary process is ideal for projects such as apartments, hotels, senior living residences, student dorms, town homes, multi-family and educational structures.

IDBS ability to provide accurate quotes and guaranteed pricing is supported by their 1,000+ strategic supply chain partners. Without problems like weather delays, and with very predictable material and labor costs, lenders and investors can have high confidence in minimal or zero cost overruns. Our customers value the fact that our pricing, which can represent up to 80-90 percent of an erected structures cost, is fixed and guaranteed, giving them the confidence that their construction budgets will be held intact, stated Steven Saffell Executive Director-Northeast.

IDBS was formed by bringing together the most experienced team of off-site building specialists from Excel Homes Group, All American Building Systems and Mod-U-Kraf Homes. These specialists have more than 300 combined years of off-site construction experience in all aspects of design, cost estimating and project management. With five facilities located in Indiana, Iowa, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, IDBS has developed a national reach making it the market leader in off-site commercial and multi-family building solutions in North America.

Boulder Remodeling Contractor Melton Construction Inc. Changes Name to Melton Design Build

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) August 16, 2012

Residential and commercial remodeling contractor Melton Construction Inc., headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, announced today that it has changed its trade name to Melton Design Build. According to Ty Melton, president of the company, Our company was one of the first design build remodeling firms serving Boulder and the surrounding areas. We started offering design services shortly after we began doing business in 1993. Our new name, Melton Design Build, better reflects the full spectrum of architectural design and construction services we provide our clients. The company has also changed its web address to to reflect its new name.

Asked why the company uses the design build approach, Rick Johnson, Melton Design Builds general manager, explained The design build approach to remodeling is an easier, more convenient and less complex remodeling process for our clients. He continued, We find most homeowners and business owners find it very appealing. Its been our experience that for most types of remodeling projects, the design build approach we use is simpler, faster and can provide clients greater value. One of the reasons is that the ability to design and build a project to a specific budget is enhanced with this method.

With the design build remodeling process, the property owner selects a single design build remodeling contractor that works with the owner from the initial design discussions through to completion of the construction on the project. The design build contractor provides both the design and construction services. Selecting a design build remodeling contractor is different than selecting a construction-only contractor as it involves evaluating the contractors ability to provide the quality of design as well as the quality of construction the property owner is looking for.

Mr. Melton explained some of the benefits he believes design build offers. With design build the remodeling contractor designs the project so that it can be built within the agreed target budget. Since our staff architect who is designing the project knows construction costs intimately, the design is developed to fit in the overall design and construction budget from the beginning. And, as the contractor is responsible to the client for the entire process, if there is a problem with the design or construction, it is up to the design build contractor to resolve it. No time or money is wasted figuring out who is responsible to fix the problem. Its just a lot neater and simpler.

While not well known in some parts of the country, the trend towards design build remodeling has been growing over the past 25+ years. In many parts of the country, it is the dominant approach for many types of remodeling projects. Many of the design awards given by the remodeling industrys various competitions go to design build remodeling firms. Melton has won several of those awards for both commercial and residential remodeling projects.

Melton Design Build (formerly known as Melton Construction) headquartered in Boulder CO was founded in 1993 by Ty Melton. Melton Design Build provides architectural design, interior design and construction services to both homeowners and business owners primarily in Boulder, Louisville, Lafayette, Longmont, Niwot, Gunbarrel, Erie, Lyons, Superior, and parts of the Denver, Colorado area.

Typical home remodeling projects for the company include: kitchen and bath remodeling, single and multi-level home additions including pop-tops, whole home renovations, exterior remodeling, and green or energy-related remodeling. For its commercial clients, Melton Design Build remodeling projects often include professional, medical and dental offices, retail and restaurants and most types of light commercial remodeling.

In addition to other awards and honors, Melton Design Build was named one of Americas Top Remodelers in 2011 by Professional Remodeler Magazine and was named a Big50 remodeling firm by Remodeling Magazine. The company is a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Boulder Green Building Guild, Center for Resource Conservation, the Boulder Chamber of Commerce and other trade and business organizations.
