Elite’s Construction Process

Step 1 – Design

As with any project, the key factor to success is a well thought professional design. Elite’s philosophy is we should spend more time designing a project and less time building it. All decisions should be made prior to breaking ground, including all material types. All of our projects are professionally designed using computer aided design (CAD) programs.
