1,075 Cambridge, MA 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 Cambridge design-and-build company to complete your entire project, from initial sketches through final construction.

Featured Reviews for Cambridge, MA Design-Build Firms

The Holland Companies
Cambridge, MA Design-Build Firms
February 5, 2017
“It’s rare to meet a builder that not only “talks the talk” but also “walks the walk.” The Holland Companies were on time, on budget, and delivered a product superior to the initial quality promised. Basically the opposite of what typically happens. We would entrust our next project with them only.”
New England Design & Construction
Cambridge, MA Design-Build Firms
October 15, 2012
“We love our kitchen, bathroom and expanded kids bedroom. Dave and Cory really understood our style and our budget. I loved the communication especially the ever other weekly meeting to discuss questions and progress.”
Lee Kimball
Cambridge, MA Design-Build Firms
January 31, 2013
“Lee Kimball did a single story addition and kitchen renovation to our historic home. They were fantastic. Very respectful of us, encouraged open and frequent communication, used excellent sub-contractors, were committed to finishing on time, and meticulous about finish work. It was a wonderful experience.”
The Curtice Group Inc
Cambridge, MA Design-Build Firms
December 7, 2018
“I'm happy to give Scott Curtice my strongest positive recommendation. Our project went quite smoothly, staying on schedule thanks to the fact that my office is in the house and Scott's commitment to providing a foreman. This enabled us to make decisions quickly and address problems promptly. Scott and his crew showed a lot of creativity in meeting our requirement to stay in the house during the renovation, to the extent of setting up a temporary kitchen and shower in the basement. In the end, we only had to be out of the house for about a week. He was also very good about coordinating with our architect and the cabinetmaker that we selected ourselves. Having heard a few horror stories of renovation cost overruns, I think we also did well in this respect. Our final figure was about 10% more than the initial estimate due to the kind of unforeseen issues that can be expected on any such project, along with a few changes that we ordered. The level of detail Scott provides in his constantly updated spreadsheet also helped us to make some decisions that reduced our cost.”

“With so many options to choose from, it is helpful to have professional guidance. May not have been an Instagram worthy project, but your advice and patience was appreciated. When the larger long range remodel comes along, will be sure to contact you.”
Morse Constructions
Cambridge, MA Design-Build Firms
December 7, 2012
“Repaired a number of issues with the exterior of our house including rotted sofet and replaced the asphalt roof on our porch with a rubber roof (the roof was done by a sub I believe). The work was done int he time expected time frame and looks good. Workers were friendly and kept the work area's clean.”
Charlie Allen Renovations, Inc.
Cambridge, MA Design-Build Firms
May 24, 2013
“We hired CAR to remodel a carriage house studio, and the experience could not have been better. CAR worked with us thoughtfully and carefully on our design, listened and responded to our needs, gave great guidance, offered numerous options along the way, and paid close attention to cost as we worked through the design phase. The contract was clear, and they were able to stick to the agreed-upon budget and the time frame. They kept us informed about the progress of the project, communicating as much detail as we were interested in hearing. They were prompt, respectful, and friendly, and their attention to detail was amazing--they noticed things I would never have noticed, and fixed them without being asked. No shortcuts or shoddy sub work allowed! And the final result? We love it. Embarrassing to say, it's a little too quiet around here now that the project is done. I'd hire them again in a minute. Five stars!”

“Project was renovation of roof deck the railings of which were destroyed by the storm. The end result was a sturdy deck with a very elegant finish.”
Honeycomb Design + Build, LLC
Cambridge, MA Design-Build Firms
March 28, 2019
“I have a small home that was built in 1940. The space was very blocked off (separate living spaces divided by walls with doors.) I wanted to have an open kitchen/dining room and living room and wanted to be able to use my space more efficiently. Also, my chimney and oven were in the middle of the space and I wanted to keep them in the same spot to avoid a complicated (and potentially costly) relocation of gas lines and flue/gas ventilation. I felt like I needed the help of designer to reconfigure the space. I was impressed with the one stop shop approach that Honeycomb Design Build had to offer. I had heard great things about Resa from a friend who worked with her on a commercial construction project. The design they came up with was awesome, and something I would never have thought of on my own. The fireplace and stove/oven turned out to be the coolest part of the layout. Dave and his team constructed seamless floating shelves that wrap around the chimney creating a great focal point. The combination of wood, brick, stainless steel and variations of teal make it a dream space for me. I was nervous about doing a renovation after hearing horror stories from friends and family about bad contractors. But my experience Honeycomb Design Build turned out great! I would definitely recommend Honeycomb Design Build.”
Donelan Contracting
Cambridge, MA Design-Build Firms
March 16, 2016
“We hired Donelan Contracting to do a major renovation of our house including putting in a new entrance, adding a bathroom and gut renovating another, adding a mudroom, gut renovating our lichen and opening up the kitchen to dining room. We also added built in bookshelves and air conditioning. We are very pleased with the outcome and found the whole process quite smooth. Donelan is experienced and has good subcontractors”
