Philadelphia, PA Design-Build Firms

Featured Reviews for Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia, PA
Bellweather Design-Build, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia, PA
"Our third major project carried out by Bellweather turned out as well as we could have ever hoped. It involved the removal of walls to open out the ground floor, moving the back wall of the house further back to add square footage to the ground floor, the design and installation of a new kitchen and renovations to what had been the dining room. The project included significant electrical and plumbing work, design work by an architect and coordination with the City to obtain permits and get the work approved."

Thunderchild Remodeling LLC.
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia, PA
"Reese and his team recently completed our row home kitchen renovation in South Philadelphia. Their quality of work was excellent and their prices very reasonable. Reese was always professional- very prompt to answer our questions, return calls, etc. They kept their tools and building supplies very organized and respected our home- even left the outside light on for us every night when they left. I would highly recommend their services to others in the area and hope to be able to use them again in the future. Thanks Reese and team!"

Myers Constructs, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia, PA
"Myers impressed me from our first point of contact. They were gracious, communicative, professional, collaborative and genuine. I was excited to work with this team from the start. Our project, while small, was incredibly complex. Myers listened openly when I gave input on technical aspects and issues, and relied on my expertise with a great deal of trust. During the construction phase, I continued to work collaboratively with the site crew, scrutinizing on the smallest of details and working together to get everyting 'just right'. I look forward to our next opportunity to work together."

Woodenbox LLC
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia, PA
"Kurt Schlenbaker and his team are the best in the business. We have worked with them on many projects, from deep energy retrofit of an old warehouse to a new-construction passive house, and Kurt never disappoints. His attention to detail and craftsmanship, along with his clear communication and easiness to work with make him a go to design-builder for the projects we design."

Kyle Baptiste
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia, PA
"Kyle converted our garage into an extended living room. He completed the project on time and within budget. Kyle was very helpful in suggesting design and layout plans in addition to making recommendations to the final finished product involving woodwork trim, lighting and flooring ideas. He took all the guesswork out of the conversion and made the project a stress free and enjoyable experience. We love the extra space and highly recommend Kyle and his team to anyone looking to renovate or to make home improvements!"

Main Line Renovations, Inc
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia, PA
"We hired Dan to renovate a 2B/2B co-op apartment in NYC. The building is mid-century, and had not been done in over 30 years. The project was not especially complex, but there were rules imposed by management of the building that made it tricky. All materials had to come through a service elevator and we had a finite number of days to complete the project; we actually could have only 6 'noise days.' If we ran over the schedule, we would have been fined. Dan made the deadline and got big kudos from the building. And the work was beautiful. Dan and his designer planned a full kitchen and bar, removed a wall and installed French doors, re-did closets and was all we expected and more! Our building has a complex HVAC system and all heating ducts had to be covered and the common hallway prepped every night. Dan was spotless. He and his workers were friendly, helpful, and timely. We definitely would use him again and will recommend him."

Spring Creek Design
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia, PA
"Pete and his team did a complete refinishing of our basement. It was done in two stages: the first included designing the empty space to make it most functional for us. We needed apartment type living as our daughter and two granddaughters are living with us. We wanted as much light as possible which he accomplished with the installation of extra windows and great lighting. In addition to a living area, we needed a desk area, a bedroom and bath and plenty of usable storage. He covered existing support posts and added closets. The second stage was begun after three years when we decided a kitchen was also needed so Pete again used his design expertise by converting the desk area into a wonderful kitchen which includes plenty of cabinet and counter top space, a refrigerator, sink, dishwasher and stove along with the addition of a beautiful, functional breakfast bar. Pete and his carpenters, plumbers and others were always respectful, on time and kept us abreast of what was happening on a daily basis. There were no unexpected delays. We could not have asked for a better outcome."

Michael Robert Construction
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia, PA
"While we have not technically begun breaking ground on our project yet, my husband and I have been working with Mike from Michael Roberts Construction for the past few months in preparation for our whole house renovation. Mike has been exceedingly patient and helpful in helping us along the planning and design process. My husband and I are both very opinionated, and a bit OCD. Mike has been an amazing help in leading us along to design the house to meet our tastes, while keeping us steadily in line for a realistic plan - in regards to time and money. I appreciate his honestly, expert advice, and constant professionalism throughout what can be a very stressful and momentous time. I look forward to sharing the photos of the project when it is completed by Mike and his talented wife Ellie. Seeing the photos of their home here on Houzz has been a constant source of inspiration, and the reassurance we needed to confirm we made the right decision in hiring Michael Robert 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, Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia, PA, 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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?
