We are a small family run company targeting specific clients that want a one-stop shop for everything that they ever dreamed of - and not the standard. We cannot look back at any of our past projects and say that we did something standard. Every detail is special, from flooring, to layout, to the roof. We are a design-to-build company.
We do not have architects on staff, but we have relationships with top architects and architectural firms. We don't have a designer on staff, but April has a passion for interior design. We give clints an option: You can work with April for design for a low cost, or we can bring you the option to have an outside designer on staff. April ill do everything from space design, to selecting materials, and will even help with furniture/after construction finishes for designing the home.
We have two smart home packages. The first option is the basic package (this is what most of our clients ask for) which provides a fast internet connection everywhere in the house, smart wall switches and an Amazon Ring or Google Next camera surrounding the house, mostly for security and surveillance purposes. We are open to similar options that clients may want to use instead of those listed. Homeowners like to know who stopped by their house when they aren't home or if their packages were delivered while they are away.
The second option is the advanced package where you have an app on your smartphone or tablet device hanging on the wall that can support all other smart devices in the house, from turning up the hot tub, opening/closing the shades/blinds, or even controlling the sound system/tv. The advances package typically includes a tech room or tech closet of some type so that everything is kept in one location that is concealed and so wiring and remotes are not exposed all over the home!
We work with Control4, Savant, Crestron, Vivint, Amazon Echo , Google Nest Hub, Apple Home Kit, and many others! Some systems can control more things than other systems. They can control lighting throughout the house, HVAC system/thermostat, garage doors, gates, TVs, pool equipment, window treatments and much more!
Most clients are still a bit in the gray area of this field, but we feel if they are more educated it would change their perspective on technology/smart homes, which we enjoy doing! If educated properly clients usually find this option to be cool and works very well for them.
Clients usually are not too aware of what is available in the marketplace, but are slowly learning and hearing more about all the different options, as well as, what they have to offer.
This would be an add-on and is something we can talk about with clients in the early pre-construction stages and then implemented during the construction phase.

Every job is unique, so timing is based on the scope of work. Markham Group LLC. flourishes in completely custom renovation projects and new construction of incredible intricacy and detail. The time frame in which your project will be completed is in writing on our contracts and is based on when commencement begins after the building permit is secured (if ones is required). Project timelines may also vary depending on the supply chain, as well as, if changes are made to the scope of work.
We pride ourselves on offering an outstanding service for a reasonable price. When a prospective client utilizes a professional approach (hiring a designer, and reputable contractors), we are rarely the lowest bidder and rarely the highest. We competitively bid frequently, but our real value is established once the working relationship begins. We tailor build to budget and your personal requirements while never sacrificing our core values of excellent craftsmanship and client satisfaction. Our project managers-- with years of construction under their belts-- know how to flex when problems arise and skillfully lead a client through what can sometimes be scary terrain. With Markham Group LLC. as your contractor, your contract price is delivering a professionally staffed and serviced build at the best possible rate.
In our experience, construction stress is due almost entirely to unclear expectations. We work to limit stress by mapping the remodeling/new construction process as precisely as possible. Weekly meetings with fresh reports, an updated schedule, and careful documentation all keep expectations clear and up to date. As your contractor, we consider it our job to keep you feeling in control and excited about your project's progress.
