Andrew Williams and Associates have been in the business of creating beautiful custom homes since 1988 along coastal Orange, Los Angeles and San Diego Counties. Whether a project is large or small, professionalism and strict attention to every client’s goals and expectations are the elements that create success.
We’re required to be stewards of the client’s and design professional’s vision, direction and goals. At the same time, bringing a practicality, pragmatism and yes, at times that shot of reality to the process. Ours is a role where often we’re tasked with solving the challenges and equations that determine the methods, materials and, here it comes…costs to take the project from concept to abstract to final real form.
Our process is collaboration, partnering with client and the consultant team. High and best value is always the goal and does not always come from the highest or lowest cost. This comes from understanding the goals of the client, design consultants and the elements of each scope of work.
The ability to make good decisions regarding people represents one of the last, best, reliable sources of competitive advantage organizations have left. Partnerships, outside-the-box creativity, relationships with key, smart people, the details, the reliance upon, and relationships with talented subcontractors. Successfully moving a few hundred craftsmen, equipment and materials in and out, all the while assembling a million dissimilar pieces of materials is, flat out, the best part.
Building or remodeling a home is an inherently coarse and irregular act. This has nothing to do with the personality of the builder (although some deserve that description), architect or client. But is the result of the dynamic created when hiring qualified professionals. Out of that dynamic comes the creative force to produce a fine home. No matter how humbly this is presented, in the end, that is the equation.
We require a strong commitment to value, effectiveness and accountability when assembling the team for your project. Let’s start a conversation. I’m certain there will be considerable alignment of our definitions for a successful project.
