Raleigh 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.

Quality Design & Construction
Design-Build Firms in Raleigh
"Prepare to be pleased. Fortunately, someone recommended Quality Design & Construction to me at the turn of the century (when they were called Quality Home Improvements) to renovate our master bathroom. I was pleased. Since then they have redesigned and renovated our kitchen, a second bathroom and our deck. They have replaced all our windows with energy efficient ones. They have repaired or upgraded much of our aging home as recommended by periodic home inspections. As perhaps their strangest project, I had them build a black bamboo pot. This pot is twelve feet long by three feet wide by 30 inches deep with six inch poured concrete walls. We hope that it will contain the beautiful, but invasive black bamboo. And my personal favorite, they build a bridge over Honey Brook. It has an attached pergola (I had to look that one up in the dictionary) to hold our climbing, hardy kiwi. I found a builder who is trustworthy and up to any challenge. You, too, will be pleased."

Chandler Design-Build
Design-Build Firms in Raleigh
"We are thrilled we hired Beth and Michael to design a renovation/addition. From day one they listened to our needs, immediately made design suggestions, and instilled in us a sense of confidence in their experience. Since then they delivered an amazing design with thoughtful suggestions for materials and energy efficiency. They continue to be open to revisions and helping us discover what it is we are ultimately wanting in our new spaces. Michael and Beth will not be building our project but they will act as consultants to help us select a builder to build a high quality project at a reasonable cost. They sat in on one meeting so far with a prospective builder and their experience shined through immediately. Beth presented the design concept and communicated our vision while Michael shared the nuts and bolts of the construction details. After the meeting we knew their role in the next phase of the project is invaluable. They are definitely looking out for our best interests. We look forward to seeing our project be built with Beth and Michael as our allies."
- Ryan Ford

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 Raleigh, 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?
