New Orleans 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 New Orleans
Jackson Construction, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in New Orleans
"Ed Jackson provided us with a very detailed and realistic estimate of the job and had thought of several things that needed to be addressed that other contractors did not mention. Through out the job, he was constantly on top of things and when ever there was an unforeseen problem, he did an excellent job of explaining our options. The main way he keep the project moving was with a checklist he provided us with what we needed to choose and by when so time wasn't wasted waiting for materials to be delivered. If I ever do a major house remodel again, this is the company that I will choose."

D. Jenks Designs
Design-Build Firms in New Orleans
"We purchased an older home knowing we would need some updates and renovations. I contacted d. Jenks because they had a great reputation as craftsman, but also I would need creative talent to understand what I needed with function and style. After spending time discussing the usage for the renovated space, Art Studio/Office, Dylan honed in on my style. He came back with design ideas that I hadn't considered. His use of space, lighting both natural and electric. All of this delivered within my budget! The process and timing of demo and renovations in a occupied dwelling could be catastrophic, but Dylan and David Jenks worked tirelessly to deliver on time a space beyond our expectations. What a great team of skilled craftsman. They finished the project with custom bookcases and a beautiful rustic reclaimed cypress mantle. The art studio has vaulted tongue in groove ceilings with natural and indirect lighting. We love our new space."

DAKMAK Construction
Design-Build Firms in New Orleans
"After Hurricane Gustav, the crew at Nelson Dakmak were on hand almost immediately to repair our home. We had one large tree crush the front of our home, taking out most of the brick column porch and buckling the bricks across the front of our home. We also lost our back patio to another large tree. Nelson and his crew were on time, meticulous, and wonderful to work with. This is something I have never been able to say about other contractors that we have worked with. A real quality company."

Habitat Digital Design & Construction
Design-Build Firms in New Orleans
"Building a high quality 4 bedroom / 3 bathroom home in an upscale neighborhood. We didn't design the house but we were able to completely customize the interior. We chose paint colors and flooring which included wood, tile, and carpet. We also chose counter tops, tile, and cabinet stain. During construction my wife and I notice several areas that would make good nooks or storage / tornado shelters and they accommodated those requests."

Precision Construction Group
Design-Build Firms in New Orleans
"Rick Vinyard with The Precision Construction Group took on the challenge of a major remodel of our den, kitchen, dining room, living room, stairs and a connecting hallway. Rick took our house from a dark, boxy, 1970s house to a modern, light, open concept HOME of this century. The 900 sq ft remodel project included gutting all 4 rooms, replacing exterior doors and windows, replacing 2 load-bearing walls with flush beams, new floors, custom cabinetry and new appliances - all while we lived in the house. Like most remodels, there were a few surprises - all handled well. Of course, there was the inevitable "scope creep" - also handled well. Rick's crews were always respectful and patient. Rick went out of his way to make our experience pleasurable and our house our HOME."

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 New Orleans, 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?
