Salt Lake City 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.

Gardner Group
Design-Build Firms in Salt Lake City
"Long distance builds take courage, but when we walked into the Gardner Group’s stunning project on Mountain Top Lane (recently featured on Houzz), we suspected there was nothing to fear. What we have learned over the past year is that, working with the Gardner Group, even the Cowardly Lion could enjoy the process. The husband and wife team of Murray Gardner, who has coordinated all engineering, construction, landscaping, HVAC, electrical and automation aspects of our incredibly complex project, and Felicity Gardner, who has worked with us on the interior design choices, have been with us – by phone, by email, and even mini-video – every step of the way. From selecting the ideal lot to choosing the perfect stain for the base and case, they have sought our input when appropriate and never bothered us when we didn’t need to be involved in a decision. In less than a year, they have taken our project from an barren hillside to a nearly finished home. And in all that time, we have not experienced a single stressful moment. Just as the four ton steel beam in the second photo is absorbing all the structural stress of this build, Gardner Group has absorbed all the psychological stress. On any given day there may be 25 people from five different specialties at work on this project, but Murray has managed to keep them all on task and all working happily with one another. Felicity’s acute eye and knowledge of local design resources have meant that we’ve been able to plan an interior that should be as glorious as the views that surround our home…and do it all within our budget. No small feat. And did I mention that, on top of everything, they are two of the loveliest people we have ever met?"

I am currently in the process of building Steve's design and even in the framing phase, am receiving great compliments."

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 Salt Lake City, 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?
