DMG Design+Build Puts the Customer First
No matter the circumstances, the company prioritizes innovation and relationships
“The Customer’s Contractor” is a label DMG Design+Build has worked hard to earn. Ryan McCroskey, the company’s founder, saw a need for what he describes as a single place where a team of professionals can take a client’s vision from conception to completion under one roof in the Greater New Orleans area. DMG Design+Build has been an award-winning company year after year. In 2019 alone, the team garnered several notable honors and distinctions, including: placement in the Remodeling 550 and Qualified Remodeler Top 500, as well as being named General Contractor Magazine’s #1 pick for kitchen remodeling and an Inc 5000 fastest-growing company. DMG has received two prestigious Chrysalis awards, and Ryan McCroskey has been recognized in PRO Remodelers’ 40 under 40. Even though 2020 is off to a rocky start for businesses worldwide, this team continues to push forward with new and exciting ideas to embrace the social and economic changes.
In what ways are you thriving and pushing forward as a business during COVID-19?
We are launching a new division of DMG Design+Build called 11 Semi-Custom Value Home Designs. This new division is proving to be a hit amongst first-time home buyers and investors alike, but with people watching their money more closely during COVID-19, we want them to take advantage of this opportunity to achieve their goals. DMG’s 11 Semi-Custom Value Home Designs benefits the clients who want to build a home that fits their family and lifestyle while saving time and money. We will have 11 plans for clients to choose from. It also allows those same clients to focus their attention and budget on customizing their chosen plan by working with our Designer to hand-pick the selections, materials, and finishes.

Are there any lessons you have learned? Any new technology you’ve embraced?
One of the tools we use to accomplish successful communication is with our cloud-based Client Portal. The Client Portal is utilized throughout the entire project. This form of communication provides transparency between the client and DMG Design+Build with milestone logs during development of the project and daily logs once production is underway. The convenience of monitoring your vision come to life every step of the way could not be simpler, with 24/7 online access. Our Client Portal has allowed us to provide updates and communicate with our clients while social distancing.
Do you anticipate your business will change in any way when the community opens back up? If so, how?
We are known for custom design, home construction and remodeling but we expect to see a continued move with our 11 Semi-Custom Value Home Designs whereby we may add more semi-custom options. Our 11 Semi-Custom Value Home Designs allow a client to choose a plan that meets their expectations from our library of designs. As the home builder, we work with our client to customize the home’s selections, materials, and finishes. Our 11 Semi-Custom Value Home Designs offer clients the best of both worlds. They are able to achieve the vision for their new home without the timely investment to fully customize it. Since you are not beginning from scratch, there is both time and money saved.
DMG’s core values remain the same: Through communication, build not just quality projects but quality relationships; Achieve excellence through teamwork; Honesty and accountability. We believe this new division will prove to be a much-needed benefit to our community.
At the end of the day, the goal is to build the home you have always envisioned for you and your family. The home where holidays are celebrated with your family. The home where memories will continue for generations to come. The home where every detail is uniquely you.
