What is a design-build firm?


Design-build firms take on the responsibilities of architects, contractors and construction companies, all under one roof. These full-service firms focus on a streamlined process — from the initial design to the estimating phase to physical construction — in the hope of creating an efficient experience for both the client and the company. Because the entire project is happening within one company, design-build firms are able to overlap the design and construction phases of the project, which oftens speeds up the project significantly. In addition, these firms work to minimize risks for the project owner through single-point responsibility contracts. However, depending on the firm, you may still want to contact an interior designer or architect to help create the exact look you want.

Before deciding on a design-and-build firm, think about what you want from your new home. Do you want a large kitchen for entertaining? Do you need several bedrooms for children and guests? Do you want a finished basement for extra space or storage? Look for Virginia design-build firms that specialize in the areas you're looking for. Budget is obviously a determining factor in the outcome of your project. To make sure you stay within your means, consider making a must-have list and a wish list. Gauge where the estimates are falling to determine which design-and-build contract can realistically strike the balance between the two.

Questions to ask a prospective design-builder:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Who is your designer, and what are his or her qualifications?
  • Are your employees licensed and insured?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
