Featured Reviews for Design-Build Firms in Stonington, CT
Debra Geller Interior Design
Design-Build Firms in Stonington, CT
"I have worked with Debra Geller both for my own home and on multiple multi-family buildings my family operates. She decorated our home, she helped design a 3,000 s/f furnished basement build out, she helped rebuild 4 building lobbies after Superstorm Sandy. She is professional, responsive, and has an attention to detail that eliminates problems before they arise. Her ability to identify a customer’s tastes, illustrate it in a way they can imagine it, they execute all while coming in on budget and on time is second to none. Can’t recommend her services enough."

Caldwell & Johnson Custom Builders & Remodelers
Design-Build Firms in Stonington, CT
"We hired Caldwell & Johnson (C&J) for Dave's knowledge of green technology. Before the project began Dave showed us other houses he had built using some of this technology. In the last stages of design we decided to use photovoltaic technology. C&J installed solar shingles on the south facing roof that are producing more kilowatts than we are consuming. The photovoltaics coupled with other building techniques C&J uses to produce energy efficient homes (e.g. foam insulation) earned us a Home Energy Rating Certificate with a 5 stars plus rating. Dave followed through to get the house tested for its energy efficiency and we received certificates with the results. C&J was also top rate in terms of designing the interior details of the house. For example, board and batten was installed on the walls of the open staircase, craftsman style trim on all windows including some open transoms, and help when choosing finishes (e.g. tile). Dave's team is very knowledgable and professional!"

Walbridge Design Build, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Stonington, CT
"We have done several projects with David Beers in the past and keep coming back because of his customer service and quality work. Most recently, he remodeled our third floor guest bathroom where he installed a custom tile shower and introduced a creative solution to the sloped ceiling and lack of headroom by installing a skylight. He also did floor heat, which our guests love. He will be our first call if we have another project."

Vital Habitats
Design-Build Firms in Stonington, CT
"As an architect I have worked with Vital Habitats on a variety of projects including renovations, additions and new houses. They are true professionals that make the process less stressful and enjoyable. Detailed pricing is provided before construction begins giving the architect and client an opportunity to make changes to adjust the design if necessary. Their expertise allows them to give insightful suggestions regarding construction details, wall assemblies, insulation, materials, etc. They are a team of talented individuals possessing great communication and management skills. Vital Habitats provides a superb service which brings the project, no matter the size, on time and on budget. I highly recommend them, you will be well cared for."

BROM Builders, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Stonington, CT
"My first experience with Brom builders was several years ago. I purchased a Condo, they had built in Norwich Conn. The quality and detail was impecable. To this day my family discusses what a beautiful unit it was. Ican remember having a minor issue with the windows and how prompt and professional the service was. In my opinion if you are lookoing to build your dream house, there should be no one else that you'd want to do the job. Brom Builders is #1 in my book."

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, Stonington 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.
