OUR CONDO REMODELING PROCESS

Condo remodeling opens up a world of possibilities. Our collaborative design-build process helps transform your space into a beautiful personalized one— perfectly suited for your needs and lifestyle!

The condo remodeling process is different from your average home remodeling project. Condo rules and regulations, building access, and work hour restrictions are essential considerations. Bluestem works with you in connection with the building association to ease this process, meet all of your building’s requirements, and transform your new spaces with your dream features, style, and functionality. A dedicated design professional helps you explore design, layout, and budget options. Then, throughout construction, you’ll work with a dedicated project manager.

Designing and planning ahead of time ensures we deliver what you want, on time and on budget. Plus, it allows us to have fun along the way! Dive deeper into our process page to understand Bluestem’s Four-Phase Design and Planning Process.

CONDO REMODELING FAQ

  • Planning

    HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO REMODEL MY CONDO UNIT?

    During our initial conversations we will talk with you about the scale of your condo remodeling project and how it compares to other, similar projects.

    Then, in our detailed planning process, you will receive budgets to accompany preliminary design options.

    Finally, you will receive a bid-priced contract defining exactly what your final design will cost. We know you need good information to make good decisions, and cost is an important factor of those decisions.

  • COMMUNICATION

    WHO WILL I TALK TO DURING MY CONDO REMODEL?

    Throughout the entire condo remodeling process, you will have a dedicated team helping you with your project.

    During the design and planning phase, your main point of contact will be your project’s Design Specialist. You will then be introduced to your Project Lead during the pre-construction walkthrough meeting. Once construction begins, your project’s Design Specialist will stay in contact to make sure things go as planned, but your Project Lead becomes your first point of contact. You will also be able to communicate with everyone on the team at once, together, in your online client portal.

  • CONSTRUCTION

    WHAT CAN I EXPECT REGARDING THE PROJECT SCHEDULE?

    Our production team is committed to driving your kitchen project forward in the most efficient way possible, but we never want to risk quality by rushing things. The detailed planning that takes place before construction even begins is one way that we can assure the building process goes smoothly and according to schedule. Between the construction contract and the beginning of construction activities (the pre-construction phase), we will concentrate on helping you make final decisions.

    We will then provide a schedule for you in your online portal, where you will always be able to monitor progress and will receive daily updates. You can expect that your condo project will be finished according to the schedule and that you will always know what’s happening.

     

    WILL THE COST OF MY CONDO PROJECT CHANGE?

    Bluestem always provides bid-price guarantees. Your bid-priced construction contract is accompanied by a detailed scope of work and a construction plan set. This contract is our commitment to you to complete the project at the price quoted. The cost only changes for one of the following two reasons: You add something to the scope of the project, or there is a hidden or unforeseen condition (such as rotted walls) not knowable during a typical inspection. Your online portal tracks all of the details so there is never a nasty surprise about costs or payments. You stay in control.

  • THE REMODELING INDUSTRY

    WHAT DOES THE ‘CONTRACTOR OF THE YEAR’ AWARD SIGNIFY?

    Each year NARI members are encouraged to submit their work to be judged in several categories. The judging is done by remodeling professionals from another state and is anonymous. The winning projects are chosen on the criteria of: Demonstrating craftsmanship, solving technical problems and meeting the owner’s goals and needs. Bluestem has won Contractor of the Year (CotY) Awards in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021, including National CotY Awards in 2016, 2019 and 2020.

     

    WHAT IS A ‘CERTIFIED REMODELER’?

    In order to delineate the very best remodeling contractors, NARI (National Association of the Remodeling industry) provides a certification process for those willing to work to a higher standard. Certified Remodelers undergo additional training, testing, background and reference checks and must renew the certification periodically. Hiring a NARI Certified Remodeler is your assurance that you are hiring an outstanding professional.
