Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia
Kyle Baptiste
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia
"Kyle converted our garage into an extended living room. He completed the project on time and within budget. Kyle was very helpful in suggesting design and layout plans in addition to making recommendations to the final finished product involving woodwork trim, lighting and flooring ideas. He took all the guesswork out of the conversion and made the project a stress free and enjoyable experience. We love the extra space and highly recommend Kyle and his team to anyone looking to renovate or to make home improvements!"

Bellweather Design-Build, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia
"Our third major project carried out by Bellweather turned out as well as we could have ever hoped. It involved the removal of walls to open out the ground floor, moving the back wall of the house further back to add square footage to the ground floor, the design and installation of a new kitchen and renovations to what had been the dining room. The project included significant electrical and plumbing work, design work by an architect and coordination with the City to obtain permits and get the work approved."

Lasley Brahaney Architecture + Construction
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia
"Lasley Brahaney's crew did beautiful work on our new addition. They executed their tasks with skill and professionalism, handling all the details and keeping the stress level as low as possible. The workers were friendly, easy to talk to, and always willing to discuss any aspect of the project. Although our project was not a large one, the owner Marc took personal interest in making sure we were happy with all aspects of the work. We recommend Lasley Brahaney highly, and will definitely use them again if we have future construction projects."

Spring Creek Design
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia
"Pete and his team did a complete refinishing of our basement. It was done in two stages: the first included designing the empty space to make it most functional for us. We needed apartment type living as our daughter and two granddaughters are living with us. We wanted as much light as possible which he accomplished with the installation of extra windows and great lighting. In addition to a living area, we needed a desk area, a bedroom and bath and plenty of usable storage. He covered existing support posts and added closets. The second stage was begun after three years when we decided a kitchen was also needed so Pete again used his design expertise by converting the desk area into a wonderful kitchen which includes plenty of cabinet and counter top space, a refrigerator, sink, dishwasher and stove along with the addition of a beautiful, functional breakfast bar. Pete and his carpenters, plumbers and others were always respectful, on time and kept us abreast of what was happening on a daily basis. There were no unexpected delays. We could not have asked for a better outcome."

TATCOR Building & Remodeling
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia
"Steve Tatios from tatcor.com is first of all a gentleman who spent hours discussing my project before I even hired him. His ideas and dedication to detail was what I was looking for. In addition, I needed someone to design, draw and then take the project to completion. The work was outstanding in quality and detail. Anything we wanted to change or tweak, he was more than willing to do. The final project gets the "oohs and aahs" from friends one would hope for and our new basement is now the most fun and inviting part of the house. Multiple parts of the project were somewhat "out of the box" and Steve took to researching and handling the project. I highly recommend Tatcor.com. It is like a gourmet meal. It takes a few extra days but it is perfect when done."

AD Panaccio Building and Renovating Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia
"We have recommended using AD Panaccio to many of our customers for their kitchen renovations. The results are always great. The professionalism and the quality of the service that Al Panaccio and his crew supply is always the best. Our customers frequently make the comment that it was actually fun working with Al and the guys! 5 stars, and we wouldn't recommend them to our customers if it was 4 1/2."
- Main Line Kitchen Design
Ryann Reed Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Philadelphia
"Remodeling Concepts installed an entire new kitchen; including cupboards, countertops, hardwood floor, backsplash, lighting, etc. Two walls were removed and hardwoods in the living room, dining room and hallway were refinished to match the kitchen. We were very pleased with their professionalism, working every day for the entire month. We are very happy with our new kitchen."

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 Philadelphia, 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?
