Atherton, CA 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.

TBS Construction Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Atherton, CA
"Highly recommended. Worked with them on several home improvement projects. Honest estimates and recommendations upfront. No unpleasant surprises during or at the end of the projects. They do their best to deliver on their promises. One important aspect, for me at least. willingness to work on custom pieces, furniture, etc, specially tailored for my home or office etc. TBS was a good source of the information on custom made items and never tried to push the item based on the price alone. Designer worked with me and listened to what i wanted/needed and in the end the project cam out better than I imagined. P.S. Like I said I've worked with TBS on multiple projects including last year, listed the larges one since only one entry was allowed."

Creation 7
Design-Build Firms in Atherton, CA
"Creation 7 build the master addition on our house. It is generally understood that having major remodeling done on your house, can be a frustrating process. It's noisy, messy, and usually, goes over budget. I can honestly say that almost none of these were true for our experience with Creation 7. The men were so respectful of our space. They cleaned up at the end of the day - no mess was ever left. The construction generally stayed within budget. These guys were a pleasure to be around also. They were funny and nice, but also respectful of our need for privacy. Also our completed addition! It's so gorgeous! Everything is in perfect working order. Their eye for detail and overall craftsmanship is amazing. I really can't say enough how great our en suite master bedroom is. It has transformed our house from an old boring space into our dream house. I highly, highly recommend Creation 7!"

"Having used SF Metalworks in the past, we were confident that they would provide us with a truly beautiful solution to our front porch railings. It was an iterative process that involved a number of design reviews that were handled professionally and promptly. The installation is virtually complete and we are delighted with the result."
- Bruce Bearden
building Lab, inc.
Design-Build Firms in Atherton, CA
"Buildind Lab provided both design and build services for a stand alone au-pair suite at our property. Stephen Shoup was personally involved through the effort. He and his team's commitment to quality, detail and excellence was indeed stellar. They understood us as clients and our needs and specific tastes. They truly listened and reacted with speed. They stuck to their original budget and timeline. Above everything else, their strive for perfection and desire to exceed expectations is indicative about the ethic and pride they bring to their work, day-in and day-out. In short it was an absolute pleasure to work with them and we would highly recommend them."

AT6 Architecture : Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Atherton, CA
"AT6 and its director and lead architect, Jason Langkammerer, provided the designs and oversight for a major bathroom expansion and remodel we did a few years back at our home in Mill Valley. The results were--and are--beyond our expectations. We have now engaged Jason again for another project which is currently underway; we never considered working with another architect because we were so happy with our previous experience with him. Jason is incredibly talented, completely collaborative and responsive to our input and thoughts about the designs, and he's a real joy to work with. I can't recommend him and his firm highly enough."

Canyon Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Atherton, CA
"I’ve been working with Canyon Design Build since 2010 to photograph the completion of their remodels, kitchens, baths and additions. When I arrive at the project site, it’s always clear that the homeowner is thrilled with the results and that they have a good relationship with the project manager. I look forward to including more Canyon Design Build projects in my portfolio."

HDR Remodeling Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Atherton, CA
"We worked with HDR Remodeling twice in our Oakland condo: once in 2007 to convert a hall closet into a laundry closet. Most recently in May-June 2012 to remodel and repaint the whole condo after a major mold remediation. In 2007 we purchased a washer & dryer and needed a closet fixed up to accommodate them. We interviewed a few contractors, but were most impressed with Philip's experience and went with him. His pricing was not the lowest of the contractors we met, but not overly high either. And as with our most recent project, we feel we got quality work for our price. Each professional who came in for their piece of the job (plumber, carpenter, electrician, etc.) was courteous and all of them worked quickly and efficiently to complete the job on time. They could have used sturdier shelving, but it's held up okay these past 5 years. This spring we needed to remodel the condo in preparation for sale. After our move out of the condo last year, we had mold remediation throughout the condo so all our bamboo flooring was taken out, a foot or more of drywall was removed from many interior walls and our bedroom windows were stripped down to the studs. HDR replaced all the drywall, covered the window frames, painted the entire condo, put down new carpeting and replaced a broken sliding door screen. Since we were out of state, Philip did his initial walk-through while on the phone with me then sent photos regularly so we were completely updated each step of the way. The work was done in a timely and efficient manner with HDR sourcing all the materials and workers. Overall I recommend HDR for their excellent customer service, friendly and competent workers and long-time experience. Their prices are a bit high, but not unreasonable for the quality work we've seen."

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, Atherton 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 Atherton, CA, 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 Atherton 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 Atherton 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?
