Finesse Built
Design-Build Firms in Adelaide, SA, AU
"Great Job Matt and the boys. Finesse have a great team lead by Hayden and every trade seems as though they are the best at what they did. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a quality builder. We extended over 150m2 of new living space including an en-suite, main bathroom new kitchen and laundry, it also included a separate media room and outdoor kitchen and an 80m2 deck! The entire extension has Hydronic "in floor" heating under a polished concrete slab. The main living area has a 4.5m ceiling with a "Big Ass Fan" spanning over 3m. the building achieved a very high Energy rating of over 7. We also added a 25m undercover concrete driveway to finish it off. Throughout the recommendations of the team were invaluable and the build went without a hitch. Andrew"

TEK Building & Design
Design-Build Firms in Adelaide, SA, AU
"We engaged TEK Building to build our dream house and they didn't disappoint. From the outset we knew we had chosen the right builder. Working with a custom builder we were able to put own stamp on the project and with help from the team at TEK we were able to design and create a home that was both functional and beautiful to live in. The quality of their trades was very high and we felt comfortable working with and communicating with the on site supervisors throughout the project build. We love living in our home and feel very lucky to have chosen a builder like TEK Building and Design. Regards Grant and Joanna Inberg"

Brilliant SA
Design-Build Firms in Adelaide, SA, AU
"After having an amazing extension done by Brilliant SA two years ago, a project completed 1 week before the scheduled completion date, we didn't even bother to get quotes from other companies when we were ready to do a kitchen and bathroom renovation this year. The designer listened carefully to what we wanted and her first design was superb, so we needed to ponder no further. Our project involved the removal of asbestos, eliminating 3 walls and amalgamating the existing toilet and bathroom, with a reconfiguration of the rooms. Brilliant SA only employ polite, respectful, skilled tradespeople - people we would gladly invite over for a meal, so it was a delight to have them working at our home. Our project manager had the most incredible attention to detail and was able to short circuit anything that was drifting off course. He was on site most days and kept us informed of the process and any deviations from the original schedule. The final result is a stylish and very functional kitchen invoking a 'Wow, that's an amazing result,' from everyone, with a similar reaction to the bathroom. We encourage others not to go for the cheapest quote, but to go with a company that will provide quality work in a timely fashion, undertaken by people who are delightful to have around. We wouldn't go anywhere else after having two fantastic projects completed by Brilliant SA. Thank you so much for creating a space in which we are both comfortable and aesthetically delighted!"

"Our builder used Sam and buildpartners in the build of our family home. Sam was extremely professional and helpful. Sam does all his hard work upfront, his initial quote was very accurate and supported with detailed quotations from trades. During the build process Sam was prompt in responding to any request for variation schedules and offered his professional opinion were requested by us or our builder. We would recommend Sam and use him again for any future builds."

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, Adelaide 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.
