MKE Design Build

Our Process


Our in-house MKE designer will meet with you at your home or business to discuss the scope of work, measure the project site, and explain our process.

Design Presentation

MKE will follow up with a proposed floor plan layout and conceptual design – providing you with the opportunity to make minor revisions prior to proposal.

Budget Proposal

Once the floor plan is approved, MKE will provide a full budget proposal (a la carte format) with a detailed description of the scope of work.

Design Selection 

Once the budget proposal is approved, we are on to the next phase of planning. We will choose whether to meet at our design showroom located in Saint Francis just 10 minutes south of downtown, or out and about at some of our local suppliers and manufacturers. Our MKE designer will create an itinerary for the day and accompany you through the entire design selection process.

Finish Selection Schedule

After all selections are finalized, MKE will provide you with a finish selection schedule that includes all dimensions, colors, and style details for your approval.

Trade Site Walk-Through

Once the final scope details and selections are made and approved, MKE will schedule a site walk-through with our trades and project managers to investigate existing conditions and cross-communicate installation details.

Final Proposal

After all steps above are completed, MKE will provide you with a construction contract and discuss next steps for the project.

Production Timeline & Orders

Once we have collected the project installment, MKE will begin scheduling the construction timeline, ordering materials, and procuring permits and documents required per local code.

Production Kick Off

Our MKE production manager will set up a kick-off meeting with you to discuss access to your site, delivering materials, and expectations for the project.


MKE maintains constant communication with you regarding schedule, material deliveries and site coordination of our team members and tradesmen.

Final Walk-Through & Wrap Up

After the scope of work has been substantially completed, your MKE project manager will request a site ‘punch list’ walk-through to review your satisfaction with the project and address any outstanding items. We will diligently wrap up the remaining details and leave you with a clean and ready-to-use environment.
