Service

To achieve success in all aspects of a project, John Webb believes in creating a close partnership with our clients by understanding their individual needs and responding to those needs by sharing our professional knowledge and experience. We are service-oriented and believe follow-through is essential for a successful partnership. We take great pride in superior client service. A unique and efficient advantage to our company is that we can provide all the services related to your project: Drafting, Permitting, Plans & Documentation, Engineering, Interior & Exterior Design, Project Management, and the actual Construction. Excellent communication, project management, accurate scheduling, and cost control brings our projects in on time and on budget.

Knowledge & Experience

John Webb has been designing and building homes in Oregon and California since 1986. Prior to obtaining his own contractor’s license, he worked for over 10 years as a journeyman with renowned architects and artisans in the industry. John brings over 30 years of experience to the local community and is an active member of the Oregon Remodelers Association and the Lane County Home Builder’s Association.

John continuously puts his efforts into increasing his knowledgebase in an ever changing and dynamic construction industry. He pays special attention to new trends and technology, design innovations, and creative and cost-effective use of building materials. Knowledge and vast experience is vital to the selection of proper interior and exterior materials, choice of finishes, specification of mechanical systems, and understanding how all these factors affect aesthetics, style, and function.

Design

In accepting a project, John applies many elements of design: form, scale, color, texture, function, and environment to present a solution specifically tailored to clients’ needs. We consider such issues as code requirements, health and safety, durability, maintainability, acoustics, and historical accuracy. We place significant importance on how a structure fits the site and the environment, taking full advantage of views and the natural surroundings. We make a conscious effort to incorporate light, openness, privacy, and modern comforts into spaces. For every project, we ensure money spent is a sound investment and enhances property value for the client. Residentially, we focus on realizing client vision, personalization, and customization. Commercially, we consider business identification and image, demographics of the business’s clientele, and the functionality of the facility. As an extension of the architecture, we offer interior design services in conjunction with new construction and remodeling… or as a stand-alone service.

Work

We have our own staff of carpenters that will do all of the work on your project except for any electrical, plumbing, and roofing. We hire our regular subcontractors that provide us with great pricing. Our subcontractors know they must perform excellent work for our clients. As general contractors, we are able to get great deals on all materials involved in the project.

Green Building Practices

John Webb is a certified Energy Star™ builder through the Energy Trust of Oregon and takes great care and pride in integrating energy-efficient and earth-friendly design solutions. As a green builder, John helps homeowners to conserve natural resources. He implements smart construction practices and specifies systems, equipment, materials, and appliances that improve indoor air quality, energy efficiency, healthy living, and comfort.

Energy Efficiency

Our staff engineer and home planner will talk with you about all of the best possibilities for energy efficiency for your location. Concrete radiant floors are one of our specialties. Solar panels for electricity and water heating are common (even in Oregon and Washington). Passive solar gain through windows and skylights is an often overlooked part of green building and design. Concrete passive heat absorption can also play an integral part in your home, keeping down electrical costs.

Resources

John maintains an extensive library of materials and products. We have excellent relationships with dealers and manufacturers, locally and nationally. This allows us to conduct a broad search for appropriate products, without bias, using in-house resources and to access other resources as needed. Our office offers a one-stop resource to clients for the planning, designing, and actual construction of your entire project.

Contract Documentation

We understand that a complete and comprehensive set of construction documents benefits the project in many aspects. We convey to our clients, and craftsmen, a clear picture of the design and construction processes. A well-coordinated package minimizes the number of questions that can arise during bidding and construction, saving you time and money. Preparation of permit-ready drawings, schedules, and specifications are a critical component of the services we offer.

Local Base

Based in Oregon, John Webb Construction & Design is familiar with local resources and believes in collaborating with other experts to achieve a superior service level. Living and working in Oregon for many years has given us a solid base in the community and a special interest developing its future. Additionally, we continue to maintain a strong home building and remodeling presence on the Oregon Coast. However, this does not limit us to just these locations. With today’s technology and our commitment to excellent communication, we are readily available and accessible to clients in any location.
