Ambassadors

DESIGN

Every client and project are given individual attention by Michal J. Cerny, the founder and principal, from start to finish.

Ambassador makes it easy, logical, and fun to custom design and build the best home to fit your lifestyle, property, and budget.

Their in-house architectural technician and team of engineers allow them the ability to turn your vision into drawings quickly and get them to building permit application faster and more efficiently than having to wait for third party professionals to fit your home into their schedule.

Design/Build Advantages with Ambassador:

  • TIME savings
  • COST containment
  • Single-point accountability
  • Targeted SCOPE OF WORK
  • Tiered level QUALITY CONTROL
  • Streamlined Communication

Ambassador charges a firm fixed price for the Design of your home and a separate firm fixed price for the Build and Construction Project Management of your home. It’s as straight forward as that. Your payments are made in equal amounts spread throughout the various stages of the build.

Accounting and administration are all done internally by Ambassador and you are always presented with comparable quotes and costs from multiple trades/suppliers and an explanation as to why the trade/supplier chosen was given the work. In this way you can always be kept abreast of what the costs are going to be and how they compare to your construction budget.

Monitoring and control of your budget, timeline, quality of workmanship, scope of work and site diary photos are all done in real time, accessible online with your own personal security pass code allowing you to view and monitor all the wonderful behind the scenes tools we have to track the construction of your home.

Ambassador recognizes issues that need to be addressed before the project gets started and keep it progressing smoothly. They anticipate potential obstacles, ask the difficult questions and guide you through the entire design and building process, from start to finish.

As a full-service design/build company, their combined expertise, commitment and integrity in the building process ensures that each Ambassador Fine Custom Home is designed to capture and express your lifestyle and personal values.  Whether Contemporary or Traditional, their homes are built to exceed the highest industrial standards, with the confidence of working within strict budgets, having the family investment passed on to generations to come.

Ambassador Fine Custom Homes Inc. has been working with some of their trades for almost two decades, while many others over a decade.  They have spent countless amount of energy working on these relationships, coaching and working with the trades in a true team like relationship so as to elevate the quality of workmanship to what has become known as the Ambassador Standard.

Whilst they are loyal to their trades, their priority is and always will be with the client.  Each of the 164 work breakdown structure unit line items in the Budget is carefully scrutinized by getting quotations from other trades/fabricators/suppliers/artisans, comparing the pricing to those currently used with a view of keeping everyone honest; not assuming they will get the next project, the costing transparent and keeping the integrity in the process.
