Vancouver 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.

Kerr Construction and Design
Design-Build Firms in Vancouver
"All the support posts for our car port were rotten and needed to be replaced. The estimator from Kerr came over and reviewed the project. We discussed my requirements: demolition, post replacement, cedar siding and plexiglass windows. The estimate was acceptable and I gave the project the go ahead. Shawn was the contractor for the project. He was very pleasant. We reviewed the job and discussed his suggestions, all of which were positive. Shawn raised some concerns after the demolition. This resulted in additional work and materials. I was very concerned about the overruns but after conversations with Shawn and Dave I agreed to proceed. The end result is excellent. I will use them for future projects and would recommend them to anyone reading this review."

Novell Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Vancouver
"We have been dealing with Laurel and her design team for six months now and have found the experience to be satisfying -- and exciting. Laurel includes us in all aspects of the decision phase, right down to taking us out to meet the suppliers so we can make an informed choice. We look forward to the build phase of our project. Now we are well into the build phase of the project we can see the meticulous detail that Angelito and his crews put into the structure. We meet with them every other week, but we can also contact them at any time with questions or concerns. (update)We have now moved into our home and love it! It is so comfortable, and perfect for us. We are very happy with the quality of the work."

Mike Strutt Design
Design-Build Firms in Vancouver
"I contacted Mike about renovating my bathroom after I saw the renovations he did in my friends' condo. From my first meeting with Mike through the entire process I was very happy with his work and his professionalism. We worked together to create a vision that was within my budget. He sent me lots of photos from past projects so I could form ideas. Mike always contacted me before doing extra work which would add cost to the project or making any changes to the plan. During the renovation he was careful not to damage anything in my apartment and kept the space as clean as possible. I have been enjoying my bathroom now for over 6 months and have no complaints other than that he is a popular guy and I will have to wait in line the next time I am looking for a renovation!"

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 Vancouver, 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?
