What to Expect


After contacting Martel Group for the first time, our team evaluates your project and returns your call or email within three business days. Fit is important to us. Due to overwhelming demand, Martel Group cannot accommodate every request we receive. We carefully assess every enquiry and advise if our company can take on your project or if we may have to decline due to scope, budget or location.


If we are a good fit, a meeting is scheduled to visit your property, discuss your goals and budget. Design fees typically amount to 3–5% of the total project cost. Your project’s design fee is calculated during this meeting.


Once a design contract has been signed, the design phase begins:

Site survey & base plan

We visit your property to gather detailed measurements and take some photographs. A scaled base plan is prepared to show the complete site information accurately.

Wish List Meeting

You will be invited into our design studio to meet with your design team to discuss your ideas and develop a wish list that works with your property. They will also guide you through the price ranges of individual elements to ensure the potential construction budget is understood.

2D Concept Presentation

The design team presents a 2D concept plan along with an itemized estimated build cost. We want to hear your thoughts about the concepts and any changes you may have.

Refined Concepts + 3D Renderings

Seeing is believing. Your approved drawing is turned into an immersive digital 3D model. The 3D model paints a clear picture of what your basement will look like once it’s completed.

Scope of Work & Final Estimate

When you are ready to approve the design, Martel Group prepares an itemized final construction estimate with detailed scope of work.


Upon deciding to proceed, we commence the process to formalize contracts, gather signatures and obtain a deposit cheque.


Martel Group believes in doing things by the book. If a permit for your job is needed, ordinarily we will initiate the permit application on your behalf. Permit drawings will need to be made, and all construction details worked out.


A pre-construction meeting is arranged with you and your project manager to review our plan to complete your project in the most efficient way possible. We invite you to use our app where you can find all the information and documents related to your project including copies of signed contracts and timelines.


Sit back and relax. We take care of all the details during development and keep you informed on a need-to-know basis.
