Attention to Every Detail

JD Group reviews each and every project.
We refine and polish our processes
continually to better serve our clients.
These details demonstrate our focus and commitment to offering the best
home-building experience possible.


The JD Group begins each project by clarifying schedules and budgets upfront with the architect, designers, and client to ensure an attainable outcome. Meeting regularly with the client during the pre-production phase ensures a positive project launch. From project conception, the JD Group can offer assistance to the client and the design team to accurately define the project scope. Utilizing the JD Group expertise during the pre-construction phase enables us to assemble the best team for your project. This allows us to coordinate each phase from breaking ground to handing you the keys.


The JD Group provides a thorough and complete estimate. We bring a trusted network of incredibly skilled subcontractors to each project, which provides a comprehensive and itemized cost per trade. We present our budget in an easy to understand CSI-formatted document, which itemizes all hard cost as well as allowances for yet-to-be-selected specialty items, such as, stone finishes or door hardware.

The JD Group works with architects, designers, and clients to establish a realistic project budget. Throughout the design process, the JD Group monitors costs to keep the design on budget. By bringing us into the conversation early on, clients can rest assured that their design can be built within their budget.

Our accurate estimating sets the JD Group apart from its peers. Our team scrutinizes each drawing, carefully walks subcontractors through the plans and the property to capture all anticipated costs, and itemizes each estimate for complete transparency.

The JD Group has a proven reputation of integrity in all aspects of the custom home-building process, including troubleshooting unforeseen issues. We oversee the entire building process from concept to delivery and drive our teams to be on time and on budget.
