"Complete main floor and basement renovation. Project was completed on time, service provided during the entire job was exceptional, design work excellent, and we ended up with our home above and beyond expectations. We were kept informed of progress on a regular basis, and every aspect, big or small was well managed in a timely fashion. Any sub contract work was exceptional, which speaks to the management of this company. Would use again, and not hesitate to recommend.

Alloy Homes Incorporated
Design-Build Firms in Forest Lawn, AB
"Alloy Homes designed and built a full size inner city home for us about 2 years ago. We had an excellent experience with Alloy during the design and construction phases. Alloy continues to help us with new projects involving the house and has been very responsive and helpful with the little post-build issues that have come up over time, notwithstanding the expiry of our New Home Warranty. We love the home Alloy built for us - it's just beautiful inside and out. There are several unique and clever design features and the quality is superb. They proved to be great partners in designing a home that suited our needs and tastes and in helping us make modern, practical and stylish design decisions. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Alloy Homes and would absolutely choose them again were we to build another home."

sk2 Design + Build Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Forest Lawn, AB
"We recently took possession of our new home here in Calgary, designed and built by sk2. We have to say we were thoroughly impressed by the overall design where modern architecture has met function. Looking at many places throughout the city, sk2's home struck us as one of the highest build qualities and most innovative designs (forward thinking, clean lines and organic feel, but not so radical that it sacrifices the fundamentals of a highly functional space). The fixtures and interior choices were top knotch, and more importantly we can tell there have been limited compromises in the quality of the structure itself. We also appreciate the attention to detail and additional touches of the latest home technologies (such as including an HRV, toe-vac, water filter, sound systems, cat5e, etc...). Bottom line is we have felt that Kishan and team have made every effort not just to sell a product, but design and build a home that they would be excited and proud to live in themselves. Thanks and looking forward to seeing your next vision realized!"

Empire Custom Homes
Design-Build Firms in Forest Lawn, AB
"Empire has completed three different renovation projects for us in two different homes over the past 20 years. Each time we were pleased with the results and enjoyed working with the Empire team so we keep going back to them. They offer a comprehensive home renovation service which we appreciate. Our most recent renovation involved refreshing the main and second floors which included a completely new kitchen and upstairs bathroom - both of which we love."

Alec Williams Construction
Design-Build Firms in Forest Lawn, AB
"Alec Williams and his team are true professionals. They've helped me transform a basic builder townhouse in Currie Barracks into a home that feels modern, personal and custom. The best indication of what it's like to work with AW as a builder/renovator is that so many of his team and subcontractors immediately tell you how much they like working with Alec Williams and that they've been doing so for many years. This type of loyal testimonial came from electricians, custom woodworkers, plumbing contractors, project manager, and even the prep/clean crew. As a result, you get happy, talented people working on your project. ... In addition, the level of transparency and honesty is unparalleled -- from the initial quote (which is likely higher than others will quote you, but then there are no cost overruns!!) through to the regular updates, billing, and project collaboration meetings. I got the results I wanted within the project time and cost scope. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

McLoughlin Contracting
Design-Build Firms in Forest Lawn, AB
"We hired Mike this summer to design and build a 2 level deck for us. The drop between the two decks was 4 feet, and we could not think of an elegant way to design the stairs so that they both looked good and didn't take up too much space. When Mike arrived to have a look at the space and give us a quote, he suggested that we round the stairs and have them fan out instead of just doing straight stairs. It was such a great idea as it made a beautiful transition from one area to the next. Mike also created a very nice privacy "wall" on the upper deck with louvers that can be opened or closed to let more or less light in. We are thrilled with the final product! We found Mike so easy to work with. His knowledge and craftsmanship is outstanding and his pricing is very fair. We would recommended Mike without hesitation!"

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, Forest Lawn 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 Forest Lawn, AB, 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 Forest Lawn 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.

  • 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?

  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
