She was extremely easy to work with, providing professional guidance toward our goal, being very accessible, generous with her time and she made the process fun.

Infinite Home
Design-Build Firms in Smyrna, 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!"

"Bradley has done two total house remodels for my husband and I. We took the houses down to the studs and remodeled everything. Bradley was very dependable and always available if we had any questions or concerns. Bradley always brought fresh ideas to us and was able to deliver our vision under budget. We would highly recommend Hall Construction if you're looking for a true partner, consultant and someone who will deliver what you want within your budget."

Carl Mattison Design
Design-Build Firms in Smyrna, 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!"

Claire Bell Home
Design-Build Firms in Smyrna, GA
"E-consulting with Claire Bell has been a wonderful experience! I was browsing photos on houzz.com and came across some light fixtures that I thought were stunning. I asked the designer a question, and she promptly gave me an answer and offered her services to locate the sconces I wanted. I had never heard of e-consulting with a designer before, and I was a little lost when it came to the overall design of our new house, so I was relieved that Claire led me in the right direction. After showing Claire pictures of what I liked, she was able to narrow down my style preferences and keep me from straying off course. It was a huge relief to have some guidance. Here are the benefits I found from using Claire’s online consultation services: •Accessibility: I live in rural Nebraska—far from any contemporary/modern interior designers. Being connected electronically helped me find some up-to-date guidance where none was available. •No appointments necessary: not everyone can find time in “normal” business hours to meet with a designer. Our communication via email fit perfectly into my schedule, or lack thereof, since I work from home and also shuffle around two preschool-age kids from daycare, music, and school. •Honest opinion: Claire is not afraid to tell me if my ideas are straying from the main style objective, and she offers alternatives as well. She respects my tastes but lets me know if they are not necessarily tasteful. •Expert opinion: since I live far from an urban center, I have to shop online, but I’m often unable to tell a cheap knockoff from the real thing, and the amount of choices can be overwhelming. Since Claire has seen, in person, many of the pieces I was interested in, she was able to vouch for their looks, explain in better detail, and steer me away from lower-quality items. She was able to provide her own snapshots of fixtures in actual stores so that I could see them in a setting and in “real life.” •Flexibility: Claire is able to work within my budget, which was fairly tight, so she helped me maximize on looks, saving the more expensive pieces for places with the greatest impact. She let me decide which aspects of the home I needed help with the most, and that’s where she focused her attention. •Fairness: if I found a piece online for a lower price, Claire would honor it if she could or let me shop elsewhere if I found an amazing deal. •Positive attitude: cheerful, accommodating, and friendly, Claire was very fun to work with. While e-consulting doesn't allow an actual face-to-face exchange of ideas, although Claire does offer to Skype, it was the perfect service for me because of my location, busy schedule, and smaller budget. I was able to get the benefits of a high-end designer at a fraction of the cost and on my own time. I highly recommend Chic Abode Interiors, and I’m excited to continue collaborating with Claire Bell. If anyone has questions about my experience, I’d be happy to answer them. You can reach me at Melissa.Lind@abbnebraska.com."

New River Building Co.
Design-Build Firms in Smyrna, 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."

Atlanta Design & Build
Design-Build Firms in Smyrna, 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, Smyrna 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?
