At Bonsai Design + Build, we believe our reputation, up-front honesty, and working relationships are critical to our success, and thus, the success of your project. We pride ourselves in being one of the only architects and general contractors in Colorado to offer maximum transparency for each phase of the design + build process. We are truly an “Open-Book” Design + Build firm from start to finish.

Our Architectural Services are based on a “Turn-key” Fixed-Fee approach which makes it an understandable, manageable, and transparent cost for any client. No hidden costs, no hidden fees. One flat fee for the full scope of Design and Architectural services.

Once construction budgets are in place, we update Buildertrend daily, so clients can log in at any time. This helps to get a clear snapshot of exactly where the project is at every step of the way. 

You can pull up a Daily Work Log to see what tasks were completed that day.

You can review the budget anytime line by line with details showing exactly when and where your money was spent.

You can monitor the construction deadlines, progress, and completion dates in the Construction Schedule tab.


During construction we also have weekly Owner, Architect, and Contractor (OAC) Meetings where we discuss the budget, schedules and continued design opportunities that arise in the field (such as adding additional shelving), and general progress on the build. These weekly meetings allow everyone to be on the same page and understand the past, present and future items that need to be addressed.

You can rest easy, knowing exactly where your project budget and schedule sits every step of the way!
