Atlanta 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 in Atlanta
Carl Mattison Design
Design-Build Firms in Atlanta
"Carl Mattison Design is truly a full service design house. Carl met with my husband and I a few months prior to begining our kitchen and bath remodel project. He helped us to think through many different options for our space. He was very creative and came up with a design proposal which utilized our kitchen space in a way we had never considered. At first we were hesitant to make such a dramatic change in our almost 100 year old house, but ultimately we selected this design- dubbed "The Ultimate" and we could not be happier! We discussed budget with Carl at the onset of this project and he never lost sight of that parameter. When my husband and I decided to increase our budget, Carl was the one who keep us realistic and worked to help keep cost down. In a house as old as ours it's not surprising that quirks and problems arose. Carl never gave up on finding the most practical, budget friendly solution and was always available to meet when we needed him. He also made himself available to our contractor which made the process smoother when quick decisions or details were needed. Carl helped us to narrow down difficult choices for small and large decisions and always replied quickly when I problems arose. He is always on time and also fun to work with! I happily recommend Carl Mattison Design to all my friends and neighbors who have come to check out our new and beautiful space!"

Renata had great, creative ideas and was able to totally change the look of the room within our budget. She was extremely easy to work with, providing professional guidance toward our goal, being very accessible, generous with her time and she made the process fun. I would highly recommend this firm and will use them again in the future."

Infinite Home
Design-Build Firms in Atlanta
"Our experience with Infinite Home was fantastic! Renovating a home can be very stressful, especially when you're entrusting someone else to accomplish what you visualize for your biggest investment. David and Laurel Mullikin were very communicative and asked lots of questions so that they could fully understand every detail of what we wanted. Yet, at the same time, they would guide us when the options were overwhelming. They have worked on projects in many locations giving them great design diversity. We used online methods such as Pinterest.com and Houzz.com to foster collaboration and bring better clarity. Their online system Build tools also allowed us to be perfectly clear about our selections, leaving us with the final approval. This system allowed us to track the progress of the renovation and communicate about important decisions that needed to made along the way! Our renovation experience was truly enjoyable thanks to David and Laurel Mullikin and Infinite Home!"

Berry Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Atlanta
"I have been providing design services for Berry Design build on an ongoing basis since 2008. They initially came to me to help them work through design and construction issues on small renovation projects. And, as their design/build business has grown and their projects have become larger to include custom homes, they have continued to include me in the process. Because of their extensive background in residential real estate and market trends and pricing they are able to bring a unique expertise to the table that most of the contractors and design/build firms I have worked with simply do not posses. Their advantage to the homeowner during the design phase is that they can guide them as to where to best spend their money so as to not only get the desired features in the house, but also to ensure the resale value will be there when it's time to sell. And, as an added bonus, they are magnificent with colors and materials both interior and exterior and spend the time necessary to ensure the end product meets the wishes of their clients. As a firm they are extremely easy to work with, are thorough to a fault, and go more than the extra mile to make their clients happy. They have subcontractors and suppliers they work with on a regular basis which translates quality work and competitive pricing. They provide full service from site selection through move in and I would highly recommend them for your next project no matter the scope of work."

Tom Williams Residential, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Atlanta
"Tom is a great remodeling professional. He remodeled my house a few years ago. He did a fantastic job.Not only did he do the things that he was told to do, he also observed several deficiencies for which the original builder was responsible. He fixed everything! I feel very lucky that he worked on my house. I recommend him without any hesitation to anybody who wants to be proud of his house. I could not have found a better builder/remodeling professional. Thanks Tom."

TLC Design/Build LLC
Design-Build Firms in Atlanta
"Dec. 3, 2012 Dear Les, The new columns and railings look great! We had been planning to replace the columns and add handrails for quite a while but it took us forever to get to it. When I asked my daughter-in-law (who is a realtor) for a recommendation, with a moment's hesitation she recommended you. We are so glad she did. Your promptness was the first good sign, and from the first drawings to the completion of the project everything went smoothly. One other thing that really impressed my husband and me was that you always returned phone calls and emails right away, and I don't have to tell you how rare that is among contractors. Thanks for a job well done!"

Her Cave Atlanta LLC
Design-Build Firms in Atlanta
"Jessica Murphy is an amazing renovator. Her eye for detail and selection of materials is stellar. I had the good fortune of staging her home at 3131 Smokecreek Circle and let me tell you, she gave me gorgeous spaces to work with. As the daughter of a builder I can identify quality work easily and she did not disappoint me in any way. If your looking for a well organized, hard working renovator with great taste - Jessica is your girl. I highly recommend her."

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 design-build 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 often 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. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of design-build firms: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Photographers.

Before deciding on a residential design-and-build company in Atlanta, 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 design-builders 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-build contract can realistically strike the balance between the two.

Questions to ask a prospective design-builder:


  • How long have you been in the design-build construction 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?
