Builder-Centric℠ Program


Our Builder-Centric℠ preferred builder program is a great way for builders to add more home designs to your portfolio at a lower cost as well as take advantage of extra savings.

Choose between our GOLD and PLATINUM Programs and watch your savings multiply! Get study plan sets for a fraction of the cost – use them to estimate building costs and review design options with customers before you buy. Also, choose one FREE upgrade with every order, such as an alternate foundation or reverse plan set.

Best of all, if you join under the PLATINUM Program you’ll receive 15% off every plan license you purchase; or 10% off under the GOLD Program. Realize savings every time you order a plan license directly from Design Basics!
