Design-Build Firms

When building a new house, people often turn to architects to kick off the project. However, a different model is becoming quite popular: design-build. Instead of dividing tasks between separate architecture and construction companies, you can hire a full-service design-and-build company to complete your entire project, from initial sketches through final construction.

Featured Reviews for Design-Build Firms

Bull Run Kitchen and Bath
Design-Build Firms
Dec 3, 2014
“Hakan was the project manager for our renovation. Each detail was explained thoroughly. I interviewed several home improvement companies in the northern Virginia area; none matched the knowledge of product information and costs of construction for completely renovating my kitchen. Architectural renditions were exact to specifications;no last-minute changes had to be made. Prior to the beginning of the renovation, costs and date of completion was discussed along with a time line dedicated to the selection of cabinets, floor, tiles, lighting fixtures etc. The crew assigned to my project were courteous, quick, clean and put materials away each day. I never had to worry about the rest of the house being a dust bowl or cleaning up foot prints. I would highly recommend Bull Run Kitchen and Bath.”
Lauten Construction
Design-Build Firms
Sep 27, 2014
“Lauten Construction did a terrific job transforming our house into a home our family plans to live in for many years. The staff was on-time, polite and respectful of my family's privacy, and did the work in a timely manner. The work itself was A-1 and we are very pleased with the results. This is a company that will consistently communicate with you about your vision for your renovation and do their best to make it happen. Sincerely, Lori & John Price”
GBC Kitchen and Bath

“After a superb bathroom remodel, we needed a few things adjusted and GBC was very responsive and everything is exactly as we had hoped it would be. This two bathroom remodel was perfect in everyway especially in terms of quality and price.”
Beauchain Builders, Inc
Design-Build Firms
Apr 10, 2013
“Beauchain Builders is the A-team of contractors! Cliff Beauchain is knowledgeable, detail-oriented and is always thinking ahead. He has the highest standards for his team and will ensure that the project is done to his and his client's satisfaction. He does what he says he will do and more! He was able to build out our challenging master bedroom and bath design...using top quality materials and superior workmanship. He is a true out of the box thinker and no problem is too tough for him. He has worked three projects for us, and we will continue to hire Beauchain Builders for all our contracting needs.”
Normandy Remodeling
Design-Build Firms
Jun 29, 2012
“We are midway through a major renovation with Normandy Remodeling and would rate the planning process and project at the highest level, so far. Our architect, Vince Weber, has been outstanding to work with. From the start, we felt comfortable with Vince and choose to work with Normandy mainly because of him. He was patient, flexible and really listened to what we wanted to do and helped us design the home that would fit our lifestyle. Not having any renovation experience, Vince has been instrumental in helping us throughout the planning and design process. Because he understands our vision, we trust the selections he presents us with and feel confident that the overall outcome will come together beautifully. Al Lovas, our Superintendent, has been great to work with as well. He has been flexible and accommodating with changes we have made and always available when needed. Our project is on time, making great progress and looks amazing so far. We would and have highly recommended Vince and Normandy to several friends and neighbors.”

“An Orren Pickell designed house was the inspiration for our own dream home. Working with the firm itself, has been the dream come true! The utmost in professionalism, creativity, and experience, and all while keeping the process fun. We have loved every minute!”
Highmark Builders
Design-Build Firms
Jul 27, 2012
“Highmark did a complete remodel of our 1926 home. It now feels like a new home but still has the charm and special touches of a home from the 1920’s. Highmark is a high caliber builder—they pay attention to quality materials, customer service, and details. Their subcontractors are professional and reliable. Their design people (both architectural and interior) are talented and creative. Their owners/managers are experienced and honest. We particularly appreciated interior designer, Kristen, who helped us create a classic, warm ambience; and project manager, Matt, who was always there with a smile and a plan when the going got tough; and, of course, Highmark owner Jim who had the vision of what our home could be to begin with and who got the whole process rolling. We just finished our yearlong remodeling project and are very happy with the result; we now have a home that will be energy efficient, safe, and stylish for the next 100 years. Thanks, Highmark, for doing a great job and for being all-around good people. We would recommend Highmark to others who are contemplating building a new home or remodeling an existing one.”
Centre Sky Architecture Ltd
Design-Build Firms
Aug 12, 2012
“My wife and I hired Centre Sky Architecture to design our dream home in Whitefish, Montana. Jamie and Ben worked on our project. Our home is still under construction as of this writing, but our experience to date with Jamie and Ben has been excellent. Descriptive words that come to mind are creativity, good listeners, organized, and always accessible. In addition to an interesting layout that fit our mountain top homesite like a hand in a glove, Jamie and Ben were resourceful in identifying unique materials and subcontractors to make our home extra special. For example, on a hiking trip in Glacier National Park my wife and I came accross an old park chalet that had a beautiful stone foundation. We mentioned this to Jamie and he found a vein of similarly colored stone on private property about 100 miles from our homesite. We subsequently opened a quarry there to procure stone for our home. Similar stories could be told for the Vermont slate roof (with oversized shingles) we are using and the Bronze windows we are having made in Italy. A unique design, with unique materials, assembled by skilled craftsmen. Most of the special attributes of our home can be traced back to Jamie and Ben.”
Framestead Enterprises, L.P.
Design-Build Firms
May 1, 2019
“After the Hurricane Harvey rebuild of our home, there were two cabinet doors that were damaged by our builder (not Framestead). The builder replaced with unfinished doors but told us to find our own contractor to do the staining. The local Sherwin Williams store recommended Framestead and their "stain expert", Jose. They did a great job matching the existing stain! I was concerned that contractors might not be interested in such a small job, but Framestead completed the work less than one week after my first contact with them.”
Michael Robert Construction
Design-Build Firms
Jun 21, 2012
“While we have not technically begun breaking ground on our project yet, my husband and I have been working with Mike from Michael Roberts Construction for the past few months in preparation for our whole house renovation. Mike has been exceedingly patient and helpful in helping us along the planning and design process. My husband and I are both very opinionated, and a bit OCD. Mike has been an amazing help in leading us along to design the house to meet our tastes, while keeping us steadily in line for a realistic plan - in regards to time and money. I appreciate his honestly, expert advice, and constant professionalism throughout what can be a very stressful and momentous time. I look forward to sharing the photos of the project when it is completed by Mike and his talented wife Ellie. Seeing the photos of their home here on Houzz has been a constant source of inspiration, and the reassurance we needed to confirm we made the right decision in hiring Michael Robert Construction.”
