Featured Reviews for Design-Build Firms in Milwaukee, WI
CREAM CITY CONSTRUCTION
Design-Build Firms in Milwaukee, WI
"I hired this firm to do a full renovation of my family room, powder room and kitchen last summer. They did a great job. I live in a 1927 home that is the home I grew up in. The kitchen was last updated (except some cosmetic work) in 1961 when my parents bought the home. I wanted a functional kitchen that opened into the family room, while staying within the footprint of the home and keeping the same aesthetic of the rest of the house. To say that I am pleased is an understatement. The group was friendly, professional, fun, and gave me the end result that is more than I had hoped for. I will use them in the future for other projects."
- Cynthia Nelson
Design Group Three
Design-Build Firms in Milwaukee, WI
"I have worked with Alan Freysinger on three different occassions. His responsiveness, and ideas were outstanding everytime. I worked in architecture in Facilities Mgmt. for many years, and I can't say enough about the quality and outcome of Alan's projects."

Refined Renovations
Design-Build Firms in Milwaukee, WI
"Matt and Refined Renovations has done 3 projects for us in the past 9 years. We have been completely satisfied with the outcome of each. The professionalism of the workers, the quality of the products used, the clean up during and after the work and of course, the finished result, was what made us always come back to Refined Renovations whenever we had another project in mind."
- tstrehlow
Renovations Group Inc
Design-Build Firms in Milwaukee, WI
"Craftsmanship, design genius, and probably best of all: they listen to the customer. Renovations Group employees from designers to rough carpenters have listened to all our ideas, answered all our pre-construction questions, arrived ON TIME, completed projects on time or before contract specified time frame, cleaned up after themselves, and left us with gorgeous results. They have installed windows, given a 70s family room a Craftsman style makeover, and created a stunning library / sitting room. These people know what they're doing, and do it well."
- ivyfairfield
Angela Westmore, LLC.
Design-Build Firms in Milwaukee, WI
"Hiring Angela Westmore to design my dream kitchen was the best decision I made. Angela listened to how I envisioned using my kitchen and set out to exceed all expectations. She helped make selections for plumbing fixtures, lighting, counter tops, floors and more. Her expertise made it easy to trust her judgement on things that I had limited knowledge of. I am proud to host guests in my home and to recommend Angela for any home project. In fact, she recently finished designing my Master Bathroom. She is extremely talented and easy to work with."

Prava Design-Build
Design-Build Firms in Milwaukee, WI
"Absolute professional. They completed work on time, on budget and at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend them to friends and they will be my only tile professionals for all future work. Great communication and they worked with me to complete the project under a tight timeline because the original contractor started to play games."
- sthachen
designbild
Design-Build Firms in Milwaukee, WI
"Brian Drew was considerate of the fact that he was the professional and I was not. He gave sound reasons for his recommendations and gently brought me back to reality when I zeroed in on materials and furniture way beyond budget. Brian and I 'clicked' immediately. The reason being, he listened."

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, Milwaukee 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 Milwaukee, WI, 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 Milwaukee 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 Milwaukee 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?
