Providence 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.

Caldwell & Johnson Custom Builders & Remodelers
Design-Build Firms in Providence
"We hired Caldwell & Johnson (C&J) for Dave's knowledge of green technology. Before the project began Dave showed us other houses he had built using some of this technology. In the last stages of design we decided to use photovoltaic technology. C&J installed solar shingles on the south facing roof that are producing more kilowatts than we are consuming. The photovoltaics coupled with other building techniques C&J uses to produce energy efficient homes (e.g. foam insulation) earned us a Home Energy Rating Certificate with a 5 stars plus rating. Dave followed through to get the house tested for its energy efficiency and we received certificates with the results. C&J was also top rate in terms of designing the interior details of the house. For example, board and batten was installed on the walls of the open staircase, craftsman style trim on all windows including some open transoms, and help when choosing finishes (e.g. tile). Dave's team is very knowledgable and professional!"

Aquidneck Properties
Design-Build Firms in Providence
"I am an electrical contractor who wired the new house on Block Island at 162 Dunstown Rd, Swede Hill. I was hired by the General contractor doing the project. I worked closely with Nick Downes of Aquidneck Properties the project manager throughout the project. Nick worked closely with all contractors, in my experience working with Nick he was extremely helpful and always available in regards to making decisions. He considered problems that arose during the project as just a bump in the road. From the beginning to the end of the project Nick made it very clear that the main objective was to do the work properly and as efficient as possible. I would welcome the oppurtunity to work with Nick's company in the future."

Beasley Woodworks LLC
Design-Build Firms in Providence
"Absolute masters of their craft is the only way to describe the team at Beasley Woodworks. My wife and I bought a turn of the century Victorian cottage with clean lines in the beautiful seaside town of Narragansett, RI. It needed a lot of work, and we really wanted to transform it from a simple Victorian to a more classic, shingle-style home. But we saw so many beautiful old homes ruined by renovations that missed the mark, and we were apprehensive at best. We could not have made a wiser choice for this critical renovation. Our home is a showpiece. Everyone just assumes that it is an original shingle-style design from 1890. From his original sketchup (yeah, these guys crank out google sketchups as concepts) to the final product, we were promised thoughtful design and quality work. We got both and then some."
- Paul Mandeville
A-1 Roofing and Construction LLC
Design-Build Firms in Providence
"A-1 replaced my old slate roof, replaced eleven windows, and the back storm door. The estimates were spot on, the cost reasonable, and the workmanship excellent. The A-1 crew is very professional, respectful, and even came on a Saturday morning to make sure the work was finished. It was a remarkably easy experience for me as a woman on my own., Everything was done quickly and the clean up was even great. I've recommended them several times. And I would hire them again should I ever need any more work."

Avalon Design Concepts, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Providence
"Erick Malong, the owner, designed the plan for my home addition, which included a master bath, walk-in closet and garage. He was extremely professional and helpful. He went with me to my variance hearing review and meet with the contractor who was doing the work to answer any questions. My project was done over 5 years ago and now that my elderly mother needs an addition done, Avalaon Design was the first and only one I called. His prices are reasonable. He stated the costs from the begining. No hidden charges. He is kind, respectful, patient and understanding. Avalon Design will be the only contractor I will use for construction and design work on my home. I can't say enough good things about the company."

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 Providence, 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?
