DeVol Design.Build.Remodel, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Cincinnati, OH
"We purchased a 1957 ranch house to accommodate the current and future needs of our 14 year-old daughter with Spina Bifida. She currently walks with orthotics, but will likely progress to using a wheelchair as she grows and wants to keep up with her peers. We gutted 3 bathrooms (on slab), rerouting plumbing in 2 and creating one accessible bath. Jeff DeVol is an aging in place specialist and helped us design an open shower with a linear drain and added blocking in the walls for additional grab bars in the future. We also widened openings, installed tile flooring, and removed some closets for a more open floor plan. Adding a ventless fireplace and converting a third garage bay to a weight room allowed the home to better meet our family's needs. DeVol's team was competent and courteous. The arrived on time and consulted us on every change that occurred in the field. We ended up with only a 1% cost overage in change orders, one item a lighting change at our request."

Strathmore Construction LLC
Design-Build Firms in Cincinnati, OH
"Rod Sidley designed and supervised the remodeling of our master bathroom. His design ideas enhanced the objectives we shared at our initial meeting, and he paid attention to subtle details that took our design concept from good to great. Rod respected my budget concerns, suggested price options for products, and updated the budget at key stages. He was an excellent communicator, keeping me informed of the weekly or daily schedule. Strathmore Construction was professional, courteous, and respectful of our home and daily life. The crew cleaned up at the end of each day and I had total confidence and trust in them. It was a pleasure to work with Rod and the crew of experts doing the construction and installation. I highly recommend Rod Sidley and Strathmore Construction!"

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, Cincinnati 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.

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.

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