Compendium Group LLC is a builder, developer and general contractor that specializes in projects in the downtown Indianapolis neighborhoods. The majority of our projects are single family custom homes but we’ve completed townhome projects, commercial projects and historic renovations on a variety of structures.
We truly value transparency, communication and reliability and that translates into every relationship throughout a collaborative process that is tailored to you project. We are committed to building something extraordinary with you as a partner in the process.
Our design process

STEP 1 | Collaborate
Each and every project is as unique as the client we’re working with. We make sure to create the time and space to get to know you and your project. We want to know all about your goals, aesthetic preferences, budget, lifestyle and time frame.
STEP 2 | Design
With a lot selected, we begin work on the design and looking at different plans. Exterior designs generally come next as we continue to pool together details and ideas. Our goal is to always balance the design process against project budgets to make sure that informed decisions are made along the way. With most jobs, we take a small deposit to help cover the design costs.
STEP 3 | Document
While certainly not the most exciting part of the process, good documentation is critical to a project’s successful completion. Architectural drawings are finalized and specifications are written for many of the materials. Depending on the project, allowances for finishes may be assigned when final choices have not yet been made. Every step of this stage is about ensuring our client (you!) and our project team agree on the project details.
STEP 4 | Finance
The majority of our clients use some sort of financing for their projects and we have excellent financial relationships that can help get your project done. Generally, this process requires the completed contracts, plans and specifications to obtain loan approval. While the financing process is underway, our project team utilizes this time to finalize details, prep the build site, pull permits and prepare for the construction process.
STEP 5 | Build
Our project team gets to work focusing on the execution of the plans, details and specifications that were produced in the previous steps. We utilize a cloud based project management and cost tracking software that is available to our clients 24-7. The project costs are transparent, the schedule is identified from the start and updated weekly and any changes are discussed and priced along the way.
Meet Our Team
By definition, a ‘compendium’ is a collection of things that have been gathered together and presented as a whole. The building process is just that—a compendium of ideas, people and resources brought together to present a finished product—your home, business or revitalized building.
