Design & Layouts

Design + Build Company Serving Minneapolis


Excel Builders, located in Chaska, Minnesota, is a design-build company. So what exactly does that mean? In basic terms, it means we are a full-service construction firm that can step in to work with you at any point along the way, from the creation of initial designs all the way to the final walkthrough after we have completed the project. But, for us, it all starts with design.

Construction and design are an essential partnership. Building a new space is one thing, but building a functional space that caters to how you live, and looks beautiful on top of it all is what good design is all about.

Design-Focused, Process-Oriented

Design ServiceWithout a design, we cannot accurately quote your home remodeling project. And, without a design, we cannot help bring your dreams to life. So we have created a thorough process that we follow to ensure you get a finished product based on a design you love:

  • Initial meeting: We will meet with you for an in-home consultation. We will discuss your goals, preferences, budget, timeline and more to get a full understanding of your remodeling project.
  • Conceptual drawings: During the second part of this process, we will take full measurements of your space and use them to draft an initial conceptual drawing that will provide a general layout of your remodel. We will provide you with basic proposal at this time, which become more accurate with each step of the process.
  • Detailed drawings: Once you have approved the conceptual drawings, we will move on to design the details, including dimensions, light fixtures, elevations and more. We can then provide you with an updated proposal that includes quantities for lights, tile, etc.
  • Product selection: After you have approved the detailed drawings, we go on to the fourth and final phase of the design process, which includes choosing your products, ranging from flooring and cabinets to fixtures and appliances. With your preferred products in place, we can finalize elevations and plans and provide you with a final project estimate to complete your design.

Investing in a great design up front can help you make the most of your remodel investment, whether you decide to tackle it now or later on down the road.
