Calgary Design-Build Firms

When building a new house, people often turn to architects to kick off the project. However, a different model is becoming quite popular: design-build. Instead of dividing tasks between separate architecture and construction companies, you can hire a full-service design-and-build company to complete your entire project, from initial sketches through final construction.

Alloy Homes Incorporated
Design-Build Firms in Calgary
"Alloy Homes designed and built a full size inner city home for us about 2 years ago. We had an excellent experience with Alloy during the design and construction phases. Alloy continues to help us with new projects involving the house and has been very responsive and helpful with the little post-build issues that have come up over time, notwithstanding the expiry of our New Home Warranty. We love the home Alloy built for us - it's just beautiful inside and out. There are several unique and clever design features and the quality is superb. They proved to be great partners in designing a home that suited our needs and tastes and in helping us make modern, practical and stylish design decisions. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Alloy Homes and would absolutely choose them again were we to build another home."

"Empire has completed three different renovation projects for us in two different homes over the past 20 years. Each time we were pleased with the results and enjoyed working with the Empire team so we keep going back to them. They offer a comprehensive home renovation service which we appreciate. Our most recent renovation involved refreshing the main and second floors which included a completely new kitchen and upstairs bathroom - both of which we love."

Wilson Homes
Design-Build Firms in Calgary
"I hired Wilson Homes to complete full interior and exterior renovation of an older home and had ambitious expectations on the timeline. They delivered in every aspect someone could expect. The trades and suppliers were very professional, clean, timely and cost effective while Wilson Homes was excellent at communicating schedule and progress. All changes encountered (as expected with a 50 year old home) were presented in a clear manner with expectations of costs and added value, which made decisions easy. I was most impressed with how quickly everything was done and seems to be much quicker than any of my friends renovations in recent memory. I would definitely recommend Wilson Homes to anyone for any job, big or small, simple or complicated."

"Ranger Homes helped us to design and build our dream home. Working with them was a pleasant, positive experience. Each decision in the process was broken down for us, so that it did not become overwhelming. The trades working on our home were very skilled and enjoyable to deal with also. Our home was built according to the budget set out at the beginning, with some differences caused by decisions made by us. Any queries, suggestions or issues were always dealt with in a helpful, positive manner. Andy made building our wonderful home fun and I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation."

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, 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 Calgary, 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 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 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?
