Featured Reviews for Design-Build Firms in North Metro, GA
New River Building Co.
Design-Build Firms in North Metro, GA
"We had an incredible experience with New River, from the first consultation on our newly purchased land, to the building and design process, and thru to our beautiful, completed home. Their design/build team is their main charm - they made it so easy to have our dream home come to life. Austin's patience level with us far exceeded what anyone else could have been for us, as this was our first experience with a custom home. He listened to our desires and needs, no matter how many times we changed our minds. Elizabeth was there every step of the way for our design choices and helped to make this space exactly what we wanted - comfortable and inviting, stylish and homey. We were so pleased with the process and are beyond happy with our home and space. We couldn't have done it without New River - we're confident it wouldn't have ended up the way we wanted, and we may have all killed each other in the process had it not been for their patience and expertise. We interviewed several other local contractors and would recommend New River over and over again."

Carl Mattison Design
Design-Build Firms in North Metro, GA
"Carl Mattison Design is truly a full service design house. Carl met with my husband and I a few months prior to begining our kitchen and bath remodel project. He helped us to think through many different options for our space. He was very creative and came up with a design proposal which utilized our kitchen space in a way we had never considered. At first we were hesitant to make such a dramatic change in our almost 100 year old house, but ultimately we selected this design- dubbed "The Ultimate" and we could not be happier! We discussed budget with Carl at the onset of this project and he never lost sight of that parameter. When my husband and I decided to increase our budget, Carl was the one who keep us realistic and worked to help keep cost down. In a house as old as ours it's not surprising that quirks and problems arose. Carl never gave up on finding the most practical, budget friendly solution and was always available to meet when we needed him. He also made himself available to our contractor which made the process smoother when quick decisions or details were needed. Carl helped us to narrow down difficult choices for small and large decisions and always replied quickly when I problems arose. He is always on time and also fun to work with! I happily recommend Carl Mattison Design to all my friends and neighbors who have come to check out our new and beautiful space!"

Tom Williams Residential, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in North Metro, GA
"Tom is a great remodeling professional. He remodeled my house a few years ago. He did a fantastic job.Not only did he do the things that he was told to do, he also observed several deficiencies for which the original builder was responsible. He fixed everything! I feel very lucky that he worked on my house. I recommend him without any hesitation to anybody who wants to be proud of his house. I could not have found a better builder/remodeling professional. Thanks Tom."

Infinite Home
Design-Build Firms in North Metro, GA
"Our experience with Infinite Home was fantastic! Renovating a home can be very stressful, especially when you're entrusting someone else to accomplish what you visualize for your biggest investment. David and Laurel Mullikin were very communicative and asked lots of questions so that they could fully understand every detail of what we wanted. Yet, at the same time, they would guide us when the options were overwhelming. They have worked on projects in many locations giving them great design diversity. We used online methods such as Pinterest.com and Houzz.com to foster collaboration and bring better clarity. Their online system Build tools also allowed us to be perfectly clear about our selections, leaving us with the final approval. This system allowed us to track the progress of the renovation and communicate about important decisions that needed to made along the way! Our renovation experience was truly enjoyable thanks to David and Laurel Mullikin and Infinite Home!"

Legacy Renovations LLC
Design-Build Firms in North Metro, GA
"Legacy Renovations has done a number of projects for me. Most recently, however, was my kitchen renovation. This involved essentially a complete demo as everything from flooring to cabinetry and appliances was replaced. Time was taken when necessary to help make choices and make recommendations and I'm pleased with all of the results. Reputable, follows through, professional, trustworthy, and the perfectionism you want in a contractor! I would and have recommended them to many friends and family. It's always nice to know you can trust someone in your home if you cannot be there and when working on small to major projects!"

Atlanta Design & Build
Design-Build Firms in North Metro, GA
"Back in 2008 I had a life changing accident as a result of ladder fall I lost the use of my legs. First thing, my friends huddled around me for moral support Dale Contant was there for me. He understood the predicament I was in because of his experience with his brother in the Army who was involved in a helicopter accident serving in Afghanistan. His brother also suffered a spinal cord injury. Dale knew better what I needed than I did concerning my living conditions now as a disabled person. Dale sprung into action to get my home accessible. Him and Fred Bailey and so many others came to my rescue. Dale put the plans together and made the necessary blueprints for Shepherd Center review. Shepherd Center was to be my home for over two months. The Occupational Therapist could not believe the set of plans produced for my project produced by Dale and his company. The OT's are not used to such detail and quality drawings. Dale Contant of Atlanta Design & Build is no less than an angel to me and my family. Dale did not have to do what he did. He was never asked, but knew I needed help. I think back now and what I went through and though it's a time I wish to forget and an accident I wish that never happened. I was and am so blessed to have friends like Dale Contant. I am sorry that I have not made the world more aware of the goodness of this person and so many others that have enriched my life as a result of my fall. This is like a story nobody ever hears about. The unspoken hero that saves an orphanage with an anonymous contribution, Dale is that unspoken hero. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SS9xBQyco-s The video above shows the work done on my home. The home was featured in the 2009 NARI Tour of Homes. It has been a model for accessibility. All the modifications were done is less than two months. It was a labor of love. Lou Alvarado, Jr."

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, North Metro 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 North Metro, GA, 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 North Metro 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 North Metro 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?
