Established in 1981 as a kitchen design specialty firm, Cynthia Bennett & Associates. Inc. has evolved into all areas of residential design, from minor remodels and repairs to major additions, including the building of complete houses from the ground up. Many of our projects involve historical restoration, as the homes remodeled are often from the first half of the twentieth century, as well as mid-century modern.
CBA is known for the “seamless design” that makes a remodel stay true to the integrity of the style of the house. The firm can also look for ways to implement “Green” design in their projects by using recycled and eco-friendly materials that are not only good for the environment, but create a healthy indoor air quality. Upon completion, they donate most of their demolition material to “Habitat for Humanity”, giving their clients a tax credit.
A good design-build firm starts at the beginning – by having thorough discussions with our clients about their dreams as well as their budget, and how those interact to create a myriad of possibilities and directions. The initial Design phase helps us to find the best overall plan for the actual project. We then guide our clients through the working drawings, which are the steps that need to be taken for the thorough design of every aspect of the new space. This includes architectural and structural details, electrical and mechanical plans, selection of all materials, appliances, fittings and fixtures…an overwhelming task made easy by our seasoned staff. We also walk the plans through both Planning and Building Departments and make sure our plans are approved and permitted to build before the project starts. When it comes to construction costs, CBA obtains multiple bids from a group of sub-contractors that we have worked with for many years. These bids are analyzed to get our clients the best total price package possible, with top craftspeople.
When all is agreed upon, we go forward into a Construction Contract as the general contractor, with a complete and solid time schedule. From beginning to end, our design-build firm gets your project finished on-time and within budget. We guarantee it!
