Orange County 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 Orange County
Design Intervention
Design-Build Firms in Orange County
"I have known Kirk Nelson of Design Intervention since 2002 and have followed his work throughout the years. As a stager in Southern California, I staged one of the properties that had been completely remodeled. This home was put on the market for sale and no doubt sold because of the attention to detail used by Kirk Nelson.."

Do It Right Remodeling
Design-Build Firms in Orange County
"I heard about this company through a co-worker that had their kitchen remodeled by Do it Right. After hearing constant compliments about their work, their CLEANLINESS (my co-worker said she's never been in a cleaner construction area), their attentiveness, and most importantly, they met their deadline..something i've learned most contractors tend to miss. I'm simply in awe of the work this company does..I know they only work by referral only which speaks about their finishing quality and overall customer satisfaction. What I really enjoyed about them is their 3D renderings. A lot of other contractors either draw the design by hand or use an out of date software..their software is extremely detailed and from the pictures it shows that the 3d renderings match the end result. I have sent them an email and will update my results!"

MTR Construction, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Orange County
"We had MTR Construction retile our shower in 2011 and they did such a great job that when we decided to have our kitchen done we gave Mike a call to come out and take a look. He gave us a very fair estimate so we decided to have MTR do the work. The work took about two weeks and we are very pleased with the final results. Mike is very honest and always goes the extra distance to make sure you are happy. We would not hesitate to use MTR Construction again in the future."

SC Homes
Design-Build Firms in Orange County
"SC Homes built my house, and the quality is superb. In 2010 I hired SC homes to build a new roof deck, including new access stairs. It was a big job and it was finished on time. Any small problems which arose later were quickly corrected. I would have no hesitation in recommending SC Homes for a new build or a remodel."

Zen Architect
Design-Build Firms in Orange County
"I needed to remodel my master bath and closet but had no clue how to design the changes. My contractor required specific architectural plans right away. Thankfully, I was aware of John Salat's talents and called him with my urgent request for architectural plans. He showed up the same evening, took pictures, measurements, and discussed creative changes. He asked me a million questions. His plans were ready within 2 days. He was extremely thorough, professional, and insightful. He grasped the few ideas I had and gave me so much more to think about. His design was fabulous and fit all my needs and provided much more than I had thought about. He really understood my needs and incorporated them into his design concepts. He created the pictures of what I wanted from the many questions he asked. During the construction, he came back to check on the work and was in constant communication with the contractor. He suggested so many design details. I had nothing to worry about. He and the contractor did it all. I would recommend him to everyone."

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 Orange County, 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?
