Nashville 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.

Featured Reviews for Design-Build Firms in Nashville
Hallmark Building Group, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Nashville
"Dan Morehouse is the most professional builder I have worked with at the residential scale. His estimating tools and communication skills far surpass those of any other residential builder I have seen. Both the homeowner and I felt informed from the beginning, and we were updated multiple times each week with photos and descriptions regarding the job's progress. I always felt engaged with the the project so I could weigh in on important issues as they happened. I recommend Dan to anyone looking to build a house or take on a large addition/renovation."
- Rocky Arnold

CDP Architecture, LLC

"I've worked with CDP on several projects and without any reservations would recommend them. They are remarkable at translating a client's vision into a finished product that stays within the frame of constructability and the client's project resources."

Gill Design & Construction LLC
Design-Build Firms in Nashville
"Jeremy Gill completely gutted our 70's style kitchen and replaced it with an updated, unique design. His mastery of wood created a warm, invititing, functional space that is now my favorite room in the house. We were worried that there would not be room for all the things stored in the two large pantries, but his innovative cabinet design more than made up for it while creating an open feeling. The finish on the cabinets makes the character of the wood stand out, and his attention to detail is outstanding. Anyone wanting something more than the standard fare from big box stores at a reasonable price should seriously consider Gill Design."

Austin Bryant Moore LLC.
Design-Build Firms in Nashville
"I initially went to Austin Bryant Moore LLC because I thought they could create what I had in my head for my workspace. After talking with Scott, his ideas and true genius in custom-woodwork design opened my mind to a world of new possibilities. The end result has left me with my own personal Camp David. From flooring to bookshelves to cabinets to my "command center" (aka my desk!), Scott and his team have WOW'd me every step of the way with their prompt and efficient execution. It was an outstanding experience from Day 1 and I would recommend their work to ANYONE!!"

- chriswhitsett
Design-Build Firms in Nashville
"Giachery really got our dream of having a contemporary, thoughtfully designed space in a traditional housing market. His help ensuring that the house's architecture style extended to even the smallest interior and construction details went above and beyond what most builders take the time to invest in a home."
- Melissa Lasher
Design-Build Firms in Nashville
"Steve was hired to provide construction management and oversite for a $3.6 million, 25,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in Minnesota that was contracted with a large established EPC contractor. Steve found numerous budget savings, provided technical advice and was very helpful in solving several issues that came up in the process and was instrumental in bringing the project in under budget. I would highly recommend Steve, he is extremely detailed in his approach and analysis and proficient at identifying and more importantly providing solutions issues before they become serious problems."
- John Carroll
Carbine and Associates, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Nashville
"We are a 7th generation Franklin/Williamson County family. We knew the Carbines from coaching their beautiful daughters in soccer. We recently, at 54, decided we wanted to downsize. We only had to look at our gorgeous home once and knew immediately that we wanted to work with this incredible company. We met with the Owner, President and Broker once and were on our way to owning our home. Everyone associated with Carbine treated us with respect and kindness whether we were calling, meeting in person, texting or emailing from start to finish. They even offered to help us sale our old home. All of their subs were complete and total professionals. They were clean, courteous and prompt in handling their duties. We were so happy with our unit we decided to stay with all their people. Now, almost two years later, we love our home and are as excited as we were our first day here. We moved from the historic Hincheyville district of downtown Franklin, TN. We had lived in that home for 34 years and hopefully we'll be in our new home for just as long. We are Happy "Carbine" Campers. Brad and Cammie Whit."

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 Nashville, 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?
