1,159 Chicago, IL 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 Chicago design-and-build company to complete your entire project, from initial sketches through final construction.

Featured Reviews for Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms

NEWLOOK Development
Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms
April 25, 2017
“NEWLOOK Development completed an exterior masonry repair on a property that was listed for sale by a bank located out of state. An exterior brick wall required a structural repair above a large window and then repair of the masonry wall. NEWLOOK was very responsive and extremely knowledgeable and came out quickly to bid the project. They were willing to work in the winter conditions as well. Because they have engineers on their staff they were also able to provide a report at the end of the project. The masonry repair was done quickly and the repaired area was perfectly matched with the existing wall. The sellers were extremely happy with the work NEWLOOK performed”
Innovative Design Concepts Inc
Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms
February 29, 2016
“I highly recommend Innovative Design Concepts for any organization or individual seeking outstanding architectural/design services. Our organization worked with Chris over a three year period to design a major renovation to our structure which was over 60 years old and was severely outdated. Chris worked with us to prepare a new site plan, exterior elevations, and floor plan, including a 2D color rendering of the project. Throughout our engagement with Chris, we found him to be extremely knowledgeable and resourceful in addressing our concerns and some of the constraints of our project (space, cost). He came to us with creative solutions and ultimately the final product was visually stunning and exactly what we needed from a functional perspective. We also found Chris and his colleagues to be extremely responsive to our questions and needs, and very open to our feedback. IDCI's professionalism and outstanding customer service really made the design process smooth and enjoyable. I would not hesitate to hire IDCI again. Thank you Chris!”
Nicholas Design Collaborative
Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms
February 5, 2013
“Nicholas Design had designed and planned two houses for me. The first was the conversion of a 2-flat into a single family home. The second was the design of a new brick single family home. The second is the residence that I have been living in for 4 years. When my wife and I set out to build our new home, we have very distinctive ideas regarding layout, feel, and function. NDC helped us envision and design a layout that not only works for our family, but I think it's a superior layout compared to the typical city house on a 25 foot lot. In addition to architecture, NDC helped us work through local zoning and other issues that were necessary to get our project off the ground. NDC also provided advice and direction to the GC and construction manager ensuring a quality project that was completed on time and within budget. Four years later, I still walk into my home and say out loud that I love my house. Working with NDC was a true collaboration.”
Michael Menn Ltd.
Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms
January 31, 2013
“Michael Menn designed and constructed with the help of his experienced pool of subcontractors the kitchen of my dreams in an older home that I love for both its tradition and its memories. It is a pleasure for me to come down in the morning to a space so much in keeping with the style of our home and offering me at the same time all that is in modo contemporary for the our time. Michael Menn is a gentleman who honors his word amd his contractural agreements. He was always available to me and responded promptly to any and all concerns or questions that I may have had. Michael is in addition someone with whom one could easily make a lasting friendship. I would not hesitiate for a minute to recommend him to others nor to contact him for any future projects that I had in mind.”
123 Remodeling Inc.
Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms
September 11, 2013
“If you are looking for great customer service (exceeding expectations in my experience), and high quality work being done on your place within or before a projected deadline, 123 remodeling is the company to go with and here are a few examples of why. After moving forward with 123, a project manager Ariel picked me up and helped me shop for both of my bathroom remodels, providing helpful advice based on his experience but still totally respecting my personal style. We found everything I needed within a couple hours and he was also able to get my an amazing discount on everything purchased. He then picked me up a second time to help me find tiles for my bathroom backsplash which was still unfinished from my previous nightmare remodeling experience even though 123 wasn't even contracted to work on my kitchen so this was extremely nice of him and definitely not in the contract. Aside from the project management, the actual worker bee was amazing. He showed up every single day out of about 30 work days except one 1 (because of car trouble) and worked straight from 8 to 4 (the hours my building allows you to work) barely breaking for lunch. When he did break though, he hung out with our Dog and was always very nice and loving to him which we appreciated :). His work was impeccable. There were a few things we added on at the end or asked to be changed that 123 did without adding any costs or giving us any grief. Yes, the project cost was expensive BUT I got quotes from 2 other companies that came in right at the same price or higher so 123 is definitely comparable to any other remodeling company that provides professional, high quality service and work. If your priority is having a positive, stress free remodeling experience, where you need some advice and help picking out material, go with 123. You will not regret it. I spent 9 months in a horrible kitchen remodeling nightmare because I tried to go with someone who could not be held accountable for failing to deliver on what we had discussed and I ended up spending twice as much in the end and having to wait 9 months for my kitchen to be finished. If I could go back, I would hire 123 again without a second thought. Could not recommend them more. Enjoy!”
4-D Development
Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms
February 27, 2019
“I highly recommend 4-D Development. The developer has excellent taste, wonderful follow up skills and a an appreciation of quality materials. We purchased a home that was newly constructed by 4-D Development. As with all new homes or any large project, there were items that needed follow up during the first year. Majdi was available and attentive with anything that required assistance. He is also a fantastic resource as we added things to our home to put our personal stamp on the space. I hope to work with 4DD in the future on a project from its inception. I think it would be a very fun and positive experience.”
Roberts Architects & Construction
Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms
September 21, 2012
“We hired Roberts Architects/Construction to design and build a new front porch on our home. We couldn't have been more pleased with their professionalism, their craftsmanship and the beautiful end result! Our experience from beginning to end was wonderful and we would enthusiastically recommend Dave Roberts and his crew to anyone.”
Lugbill Designs
Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms
December 13, 2012
“I hired Lugbill Designs for a kitchen renovation and was very impressed! Erica Lugbill has a terrific design eye and a talent for making a space really pop. She is extremely professional, courteous, and shows tremendous attention to detail. I couldn't be happier with the end results and will use Lugbill Designs for design work for many years to come.”
Wetmore Construction
Chicago, IL Design-Build Firms
April 6, 2015
“Wetmore & Associates provided high quality work on our project, a two story addition on a very old Victorian farmhouse built in 1887 located in downtown Wheaton. Our project included a new master suite, family room, additional closets, floor refinishing and a new gas fireplace with built-ins. Brian and the Wetmore team worked with us to build our vision, support changes and allowed for flexible options when making selections during the building process. The team did a really nice job tying in the old and new spaces together with comparable molding, hardware and materials to make the new areas flow into the existing rooms of the house. Overall we are very pleased with our new spaces and would highly recommend Wetmore & Associates to others, particularly those looking for experienced builders who specialize in older or historic homes.”
