Stress-free renovations require seamless communication.
Krista Hermanson is a licensed prepaid general contractor. In addition to interior design, Krista Hermanson Design is equipped to handle your construction project management needs. As licensed general contractor, we enlist professional and reputable subcontractors to work on our projects. Our subtrades are insured, have WCB coverage for all workers on site, and guarantee their work with warranties.
We manage and schedule the trades in the correct order which saves the avoidable cost of scheduling conflicts and delays. Gantt charts and spreadsheets are our friends that keep your project on time and on budget.
Using the same company for both the interior design and construction portions of a project is something that makes KHD a bit unique to the benefit of our clients. We have long-standing relationships with our subcontractors and have built a beautiful rapport.
We communicate often using the same terminology and past project references, which saves us time and reduces the risk of error. On Trades Day, the contractors are invited to the project site, your home, where they are led through the home by the designer, drawing package in hand, and they can each clarify questions on the spot.
Get started today. We would love to discuss your project and how we can help you love your home.
