St Louis 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 St Louis
Mosby Building Arts
Design-Build Firms in St Louis
"My husband and I hired Mosby Building Arts to remodel our kitchen and to replace an existing deck with a three season room. I was dreading the thought of construction but the professionals at Mosby from the engineers, to the design crew to the craftsmen who worked on our project made the entire process flow so smoothly that before I knew it we had our marvelous living space redone and enjoying the fact that it was so much more functional than it had been before. Mosby took a great deal of time in the planning stages of our project, asking questions about what we liked about our living space and what things we wanted to change. With such great dialogue and attention to detail, we were able to create a kitchen, laundry room and three season room that is MUCH better suited to our work flow, entertainment habits, and daily needs than the original home layout. It could not have been a more pleasant experience. I would recommend Mosby to anyone who is looking to make their home a better place to live."

C&S Custom Building LLC
Design-Build Firms in St Louis
"After visiting several well known kitchen and bath firms in the St. Louis metro area, I followed a suggestion from our custom builder, Chris Bednarek of C&S Custom Builders, and called Jeff Carapella of Custom Wood Products. Jeff offered quality cabinet choices, design guidance, and personal service all within a reasonable price range. He will work with one's own designer or architect without being obstructive. We love the high quality cabinets and his help with counter top and backsplash choices was priceless. Jeff was more than patient as I tend to work the deisgn process full circle a couple of times around just to make sure it is really what I want to live with for many years; re-arraging the layout, moving from wood tones, to paint colors, to white and back again. Enough to drive most crazy but he understood. Jeff was very helpful with the process. White was the final choice as our kitchen area receives a grey light in the late afternoon and I wanted the area to remain fresh and bright looking late in the day and winter months. I did not want too yellow or too grey a shade of white. This meant looking and searching for the perfect "white" which Jeff found in the end. The result is happy, fresh and just what I wanted. It is a timeless design."

Heartlands Building Company
Design-Build Firms in St Louis
"Heartlands installed a screen room on our covered back porch: They removed the supporting beams because they were not close enough to meet code, installed Geodeck composite decking, installed aluminum railing, floor to ceiling screens, two outdoor ceiling fans, and an outdoor tabletop propane heater. They also removed the old railings and a metal circular staircase that had been cut into the back porch by the previous owner. The whole project went beautifully. We had scheduled appointments for estimates with three different companies, and had already met with one before we talked with Larry Brost. The first company had given us a bid of almost $20,000 for just a screen room, which did not include replacing the supporting beams or existing floorboards. They were just going to lay plywood over the existing boards, which we would then have had to find some way to protect from the weather. They were also going to install only one ceiling fan on the porch. Larry gave us a bid for approximately half their price, but it included replacing the supporting beams, the existing floorboards with no-maintenance composite boards, two ceiling fans and a propane heater. We were impressed by his honesty, his knowledgeability, and his suggestions to keep the overall costs down. For example, we had been thinking about having a three season room instead of a screen room, but he advised that would cost a good deal more and we wouldn't get that much more use out of it as opposed to a screen room. After talking with him, my husband told me to cancel the third appointment, we had found the company to do the job. Larry kept us informed as to when his crews would be at our house, and they showed up promptly as promised. The only delays were due to things like weather which were beyond his control. The crews were polite, professional and cleaned up the work site at the end of each day. We love our new screen room. The fans make a HUGE difference when the weather is warmer. We haven't had a chance to use the heater yet since it hasn't been cold enough, but I was shown how to turn it works when they first brought it out and it is very simple to use and generates quite a bit of heat. I think we have used our back porch more in the past month than we have in the past five years combined, and we're already thinking that we should have the same thing done with our front porch. I highly recommend this company."

"We worked with Benchmark homes on a custom home project. The job site was always well run and clean. We were impressed with the trim work details and the care in which they protected the home when the subs were there. The design and finish work was exceptional. The home truly is beautiful. The project manager and builder were always readily available and responsive when we had questions."

HomeMatters Alliance, LLC
Design-Build Firms in St Louis
"We hired HomeMatters Alliance to renovate our kitchen. Very pleased with the final result. There were a few minor problems that the owner of the company came back over to fix himself. The cabinets were made in Missouri & quartz countertops were made in USA (which was a big deal for us). The quality of work done by the carpenters, electricians & tile setters was excellent. We have had many friends & neighbors comment on our beautiful kitchen & ask who did the job. We are happy to tell them "Kevin Franklin with HomeMatters Alliance"."

Formed Stone Design
Design-Build Firms in St Louis
"Eric is a 10 out of 10. He is responsive, detail-oriented, thoughtful, and supremely talented. He loves his work and it shows in both the process and the product - he expends time and effort that are far beyond what can possibly be justified by the price of the project. He is a pleasure to work with and a genuinely nice and trustworthy person. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone and DEFINITELY plan to work with him in the future as soon as I come up with another concrete project to work on."

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 St Louis, 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?
