Our Company

 
 

How we built a better building experience…

BK Martin Construction was started in 1987 by Kyle Martin, a true southern gentleman who has a passion for bringing families closer together and who can cook a mean barbecue.

The company was founded on the principles of hard work and giving your best, being a good steward of resources given to you and of helping and caring for others without expecting anything in return. It is these guiding principles that make us a good partner for homeowners who are looking for someone that would take care of their home the same way we would take care of our own.

Our vision is to be a Central Virginia’s contractor of choice by consistently delivering high quality, uniquely designed and innovative additions and remodels in every home, every time. Our mission is to empower families by providing them with an environment in which they can experience life to its fullest. Creating living spaces where families are a little closer, friendships are deeper and life is a little easier.

Our Process

 
 

We bring together everything you’ll need for a successful project. It’s time to imagine, shop, explore, and dream big! In addition to being fun, these fundamental steps will help us work efficiently with you to develop a plan that fits your dreams – and your budget.

Step 1: Set Your Goals

Begin with the end in mind. Are you looking to add value to your home with a new kitchen or bathroom? Add additional living space? No matter what it is, it’s important to be clear on what you want before you start.

Step 2: Build your vision

Dream big! Visit home improvement stores, read home improvement magazines, take pictures, and collect images that reflect what you like and may want in your new space. We can help you with this as well, but the more we know about what you like (and don’t like!) the better our plans for your project will be.

Step 3: Define Your Budget

Think about how much you can invest in your renovation, taking into account the value it will add to your home and the vision you defined earlier. If you’re completely stuck at this stage, we can help! Just complete steps 1 and 2 and we’ll help you develop a cost-effective budget that will work.

 

Working with us

 

Knowing how things work and how we work is an important part of your experience with us. That’s why we use a defined process to meet with you, create our plans, come up with estimates, and get ready to start work. Here’s how it works:

Kickoff Meeting
We meet with you to discuss your project goals, the timeline, and your budget. If you complete the steps in Getting Started, you’ll be completely prepared for this meeting.

Meeting 2 – Rough Estimate
We’ll present you with a rough estimate of the costs for your project and a design proposal, ad red. During this meeting, we’ll also refine the scope of work if necessary to accommodate your budget. We will also review initial sketch, delete red require an initial deposit to proceed with design planning.

Meeting 3 – Preliminary Drawings
We present our preliminary drawings so you can begin to see what your project will look like. We make changes based on your feedback and will begin to discuss specific products like appliances, cabinets, fixtures, etc.

Meeting 4 – Pre-Construction
This is the last meeting before construction begins. We present final drawings for your approval and make any necessary changes. At this meeting, you’ll sign a final proposal, approve a final timetable and pay a deposit on the project. After this meeting, we apply for all permits necessary for the project. Once we receive our permits, construction begins!
