Seattle 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 Seattle
Sockeye Homes
Design-Build Firms in Seattle
"A year ago they came out and gave up a really great quote on our idea for remodeling our home. They are very professional and even went as far as taking us to a few of their project homes to show us the quality of work and some past successes. We weren't able to move forward with the process but as soon as we can we will definitely be using Sockeye Home to assists us."
- David Ingram
Riddle Construction and Design
Design-Build Firms in Seattle
"After much deliberation we chose Riddle Design and Construction. Our decision to choose them centered around their commitment to quality. We did not want any surprises and were not disappointed. Their knowledge of the current architectural style of our home and the builder eliminated any surprises. Our goal was to make our current kitchen a more efficient and inviting entertainment space while keeping with the traditional style of the home. Their design suggestions were accepted and we are very pleased with the final outcome."

Urban Oasis Design & Construction LLC
Design-Build Firms in Seattle
"I hired Urban Oasis to design a backyard garden and install new stairs and stonework. After a very enjoyable design consultation, Carrie presented three designs and I selected one with no reservations. I went with her to the nursery to pick out additional plants (she incorporated much of the existing garden.) Old raised beds were replaced with a bluestone patio, and a long flight of uneven concrete stairs leading to the house from the street were replaced with granite. All of the specialty stone work was done with exacting attention to detail. I have been delighted with the outdoor extension of my old Craftsman bungalow."

CRD Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Seattle
"We are very pleased with CRD’s basement renovation project. From design to completion, attention was paid to the important details that make such a project a success and stay within budget. Importantly, CRD and their skilled carpenter and subcontractors worked closely with us to translate our vision of the remodel into a warm and cozy basement living unit for our extended family. We highly recommended CRD and feel very fortunate to have worked with them on this and another earlier remodel project."

Schulte Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Seattle
"We contracted with Todd Schulte regarding our upstairs dormer project, which enlarged bedrooms and reconstructed our bathroom. He was responsive and responsible,. We were on a relatively tight budget and Todd was open to thinking through significant issues and allowing us to do some work on our own. We were quite happy with the work done"

Axiom Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Seattle
"We demolished our 1950's rambler with daylight basement house down to the foundation and built a 2 story contemporary home. John incorporated our ideas into a unique design that fit our family. A year later we still have people stopping by our house asking where we got the materials and design. Like any big project, not everything went perfectly, but Axiom worked hard to correct any problems."

Kimberlee Kristine
Design-Build Firms in Seattle
"Kimberlee transformed our loft space with the most elegant and beautiful fabrics I've ever seen. Our loft had 20 ft ceilings and she used these amazing fabrics to create privacy in our open space. We could leave the floor to ceiling drapes open during the day and close them at night for privacy, they are stunning and perfect! She also designed a custom island that not only looked incredible, but the quality and storage were exactly what we needed. The attention to detail, craftsmanship quality, and customer service are the reason I recommend Kimberlee Kristine for any remodel and project!"

Bakken Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Seattle
"I worked with Bakken Design Build to build a new three-story (attic on the top floor) home and garage from an existing foundation (garage has new foundation poured). The owner, Joel, was insightful during the planning and design phases, taking the time to meet me and discuss any questions or requests I had. He had great ideas and was able to plan well, also having given advice on living areas that I would not have thought about. During construction, the Bakken Design Build staff were very friendly and helpful. There were no problems with me stopping by the project site to asking questions or just checking out the work. Design or material choices were always offered with dollar amounts, preventing surprises. Overall, this company was a pleasure to work with, taking the project from start to completion. I've been living in the home for several months now, and it's a lovely place to be. The design aesthetics often get complements from passerby's and neighbors."

ACH Design LLC

"I can't say enough great things about ACH!! Julie is very knowledgeable and I love her vision! She's a delight to work with and I would highly recommend her services! She's helped me on two total bathroom remodels and is currently helping me on our kitchen project!! Her attention to detail is impressive and always provides the WOW factor!"

Neu Construction, Inc
Design-Build Firms in Seattle
"As a sub-contractor for Neu Construction, Inc. we appreciate the process of a remodeling project. Once the schedule is set the process stays pretty much on schedule. There are rarely any change orders because all decisions have been made prior to starting a project. Also prompt payment is very much appreciated. We have worked for Neu Construction, Inc. for over 15 years. One of our better contractors."

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 Seattle, 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?
