ENSURING YOUR NEW LUXURY HOME BUILD RUNS SMOOTHLY THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROCESS

Each Drexel Construction’s luxury custom-built homes follow a well-organized and proven building process to ensure that your new home gets built smoothly, on budget, and with minimal disruptions.  Drexel’s process is a little different than most.  

We work with our clients throughout the entire design phase so that your new home will get built with the realization of your vision in mind.

His relationships with the professional team of designers & architects create a finely tuned machine that meets deadlines and fires on all cylinders.  Immediately, you’ll be brought into this circle, being a critical member of the team.

Our Process

01

INITIAL CONSULTATION

Working at your pace, on your terms, and at a price point you’re comfortable with, our initial consultation offers an invaluable opportunity to explore your options. Inviting you to meet Ilan Douek, our director and builder, we’ll create an open, transparent atmosphere in the comfort of our Design Center or your home, allowing you to understand our processes and soundboard ideas and move towards an accurate cost and timeline. It’s a pivotal stepping stone, where light-bulb moments flow, questions are encouraged, and a preliminary building agreement is drafted and submitted.

02

PRELIMINARY DESIGN AND ESTIMATION

Bringing together a team of creative thinkers, design whizzes, and next-generation architects, we pride ourselves on our ability to create designs that wow. It’s who we are, pin-pointing emerging trends, identifying opportunities to go against the grain, and transforming modest ideas into bold realities. And while our front-of-house team handles the brainstorming, we’ll be working behind the scenes to lay strong foundations, from architectural plans to site plans, elevation drawings to landscape designs, and everything in between.

BUILDING CONTRACT

We’ll leave no stone unturned, outlining every element of the process in a rigorous fixed-price contract. Putting the spotlight on our full construction schedule, our payment plan options, and the full scope of work, we take this opportunity to show you exactly what to expect, with every promise made in writing. No surprises. No hidden fees. Just complete transparency, designed to put your project in the safest hands.

04

INTRODUCTIONS, FINALIZED PLANS AND PERMITS

Your new home won’t just look good. Compliant, future-proof, and structurally sound, with the paperwork to prove it, we’re known for our ultra-thorough reports, leaving no room for error. Calling upon our network of engineers and consultants to compile civil plans, soil reports, and methane reports before applying for the applicable city permits, we’re passionate about giving the green light to properties that are as architecturally brilliant as they are visually alluring.

BUILD PHASE

We’ll admit it – we’re tech geeks. Keeping you in the loop, from the first lift of the shovel to the final quality check, we’ll send frequent updates through our cutting-edge 24/7 owner portal. Brimming with daily logs, photo evidence, and an accurate timeline, it’s about more than hitting the brakes on guesswork. It’s an opportunity to make last-minute amendments, unlock complete peace of mind, and get involved in the process, feeling the butterflies as your dream home finally comes together.

06

THE HANDOFF

It’s time. We won’t just hand over your keys and bid you farewell – ensuring every room is triple-checked, every appliance has become second nature, and every warranty has been placed firmly in your hands, we make move-in day a breeze. It’s part of the Drexel experience, where your dreams are realized, your move-in date is guaranteed, and your ongoing concerns are not just heard – but truly listened to.
