How We Work

Meet the design-build studio that elevates your project with an expertly integrated team who always brings delight to the process.

Design-Build Advantage


We bring together top-quality, integrated teams to deliver coordinated execution, optimized budgets, and a single point of accountability for your project. It’s called “design-build.” This cohesive approach allows us to streamline every phase of your project, from initial design through completion. With Melton at the helm, you’ll enjoy a transparent and efficient process, ensuring that your project is delivered on time, within budget, and above expectations.

Dedication to Craft


A project can only be as exceptional (and as fun) as the people who create it. We cultivate top talent in-house, so your team is always made up of dedicated craftspeople. Melton’s approach to building is centered on the belief that great spaces are the result of great teams. From the initial sketches to the final touches, our in-house professionals work seamlessly to transform your vision into a space that stands out for its quality, functionality, and beauty.

People First


We continually push what it means to make positive impacts as a business, and show the way for our industry and community. Our commitment extends beyond just building spaces; it’s about fostering growth, sustainability, and enrichment within our team and the wider Boulder community. By leading with compassion and empathy, we not only set new standards for excellence in construction but also contribute to a thriving, supportive ecosystem for all. We are designing, building, and living better – together.

Our Process

Melton is the people-first design-build studio that elevates your project and brings joy to the process.

1.Initial Consultation


We love talking about potential projects! We want to find out why you want to build new or remodel and what you hope to accomplish – a better layout, more space, or maybe just a more aesthetically pleasing home. We will also share with you our process for guiding you through a successful remodeling or custom home project. If it feels like we’re a good fit for each other, we’ll move to the next step, which includes signing a Conceptual Design Agreement and getting started on design.

2.Design


By using our design-build approach you get the benefit of working with our in-house design team (consisting of both Architects and Interior Designers) to create a beautiful, functional project that fits your budget. Our in-office design center also allows you to touch samples and choose the products that are going to best meet your needs. As you develop your project, it will go through a formal estimating phase to arrive at a fixed-price agreement amount.

3.Construction


With our highly skilled production team, you can be confident that the design you’ve developed will be constructed with accuracy and quality, on time and on budget. The project managers, carpenters, and trusted trade partners are dedicated to turning your dream into a reality, while making what can be the most challenging time of a project as smooth as possible. This includes completely handling the permitting process, maintaining a clean and safe job site, and consistent communication.

4.Warranty


Your home should be a place you’re proud of for years to come. Our proactive two-year warranty program ensures you’re happy with all the details of your project, the post project quality is meeting our high standards, and you’re enjoying living in your new space. We’ll schedule three separate visits with you throughout those two-years. During these visits, a Home Care & Repair team member will visit your home and address any post-construction issues that may arise (ex: paint touch-ups, caulk & grout touch-ups, testing smoke alarms, etc.). And of course, if anything comes up outside of those visits, we’re only a phone call away.
