Blue Ribbon Builders Process - Blue Ribbon Builders

Our Process


Blue Ribbon Builders cares about the project, the process, and the results just as much as our clients do.

Blue Ribbon provides full-service building backed by our mastery of the nuances of building in complex terrain for the benefit of both clients and architects. We know mountain construction — we know how to maximize our clients’ enjoyment of the indoor and outdoor opportunities to relax and play. Ultimately, we bring specific expertise to the table — what we offer is peace of mind.

Blue Ribbon’s services are comprehensive, and extend far beyond just construction — from walking undeveloped lots in pre-construction to managing longterm property maintenance, our partners appreciate the detailed, accurate cost estimates and scheduling services unique to Blue Ribbon Builders.



Long before the construction process starts, Blue Ribbon Builders gives thoughtful attention to both the big picture and the small, but critical, details. From the beginning, our process integrates collaboration, creativity, and strategic planning.

Setting a building on a piece of land is a process that requires careful attention to both aesthetics and logistics.

How can we capture the best views, find the water source, determine the most suitable ground for the septic system, and gain access according to the natural contours of the land, all while minimizing the project’s cost and footprint upon the environment?

Our expertise and experience ensure your house is located and oriented in a way that makes sense technically and amplifies the beauty of the home.

Blue Ribbon Builders provides unique insights during the team building process. We offer practical support through our connections with trusted and highly talented architects, interior designers, and thrive in a collaborative role alongside both longtime project partners and new professional colleagues.

Guiding you through the pros and cons of team building decisions as well as assisting with the selection process, Blue Ribbon Builders will help you build a team of established professional consultants ideal for your unique project.

Value Engineering is the process by which Blue Ribbon Builders helps to elevate the design phase from the very beginning. Relying on over four decades of company expertise and countless years of individual experience through our extremely talented staff, Blue Ribbon Builders can help guide the design implementation and execution to be the most efficient both in terms of time and materials, and therefore cost-effective to build and maintain.
