Design and Build Companies

Planning a renovation project or building your own home can mean involving a lot of different companies, contractors and professionals, making everything a bit of a struggle to stay on top of. One way to cut out a couple of middlemen is to use design and build contractors to build and design a house or a few rooms; handling your project from design and planning right through to construction. Hiring a design and build firm will make it so much easier if you plan to build your own house from scratch as they can work with you through every step of the process, without having to switch from architect, to designer, to builder, to stylist and back again. Design and build contracts have become more and more common as homeowners look to find more efficient ways of building custom homes, and you can find a whole list of design and build contractors right here on Houzz if you’d like to find out more about hiring a design and build company.

Featured Reviews for Design and Build Companies
Plus Rooms
Design and Build Companies
"Living through a kitchen extension on a terraced London house isn't fun. We both work full-time and have two children at school so returning at the end of each day to the property once works had commenced could be a little stressful; but PlusRooms protected our downstairs areas, created a temporary kitchen for us and were really considerate of the fact we were living through the works. They project managed the whole thing right from design, costing, adjustments, planning, build scheduling, (prompting us what to buy and when), right through the build - and we couldn't be more delighted with our new space. Living through building works is unpleasant but was made less so with Robbie and James' support and professionalism. We had the odd snagging that needed resolving at the end of the job, which you would always expect, so we are more than happy to recommend PlusRooms and may be using them again next year!"

Huntsmore
Design and Build Companies
"We hired Huntsmore to refurbish two bathrooms in our house completely, including plumbing in one of the bathrooms. Working with Eamonn was a pleasure, and the fee was easily worth it. The prices we ended up paying for the hardware were significantly below retail price, and total savings probably ended up close to the cost of the fee anyway. Even if we had seen no savings at all, I would probably still say it was worth it. The entire process was completely hassle free, and dealing directly with Eamonn left us feeling very comfortable that everything was being handled, without having to pay attention to all the details around the job. Would definitely recommend Huntsmore to anyone with a renovation project."

Aflux Designs
Design and Build Companies
"Creative and well presented design ideas for contemporary homes. Very happy with the execution - on budget and in time. Great team of builders and designers - and competitively priced."
- Varun Malhotra
Grand Design London
Design and Build Companies
"After considering 4 other contractors we selected Ryan's Decorators on the basis of previous projects, references and their clear understanding of the project. Do not be fooled by the company name - they do far more than just decorating! In summary Ryan's Decorators offer and deliver a first class service at a very competitive price. I would not hesitate to recommend this company."

Zulufish
Design and Build Companies
"Zulufish have now completed a couple of jobs for me. The first was a full commercial design and build of our studio in Notting Hill, from start to finish the level of service received was exemplary. The brief was to turn a relatively tight space into a hub of creativity and they certainly delivered. My second experience took residential form on a property in Chiswick, it was essentially a full loft conversion and side return which once again was delivered exactly as we could have hoped. I could not recommend them more highly."

O&A Design
Design and Build Companies
"I engaged Oleg Klodt Studio to do a complete remodel of my country house. They handled everything from design to moving me in and out of the house during the construction. It was important for me to have a complete turnkey team since I do not live in the country full time and needed someone to handle the entire process. The result was fantastic. The place looks great, it was completed on time and within budget. I would highly recommend this team for decorating projects."
- Eva Delmonte
BTL Property
Design and Build Companies
"From the outset the project management skills and interior design skills came together to make the total refurbishment of this studio flat completely in accordance with my requirements. No request has been too much trouble and I have been kept completely in the loop regarding costs, issues and decision making. Nothing has been too much trouble and the standard of work has been exceptional."
- Kerry Porritt
Clarisford
Design and Build Companies
"We have used Clarisford for both residential and commercial jobs and all have been completed to a very high standard. Ultan, the designer working in their team was a particular stand out for us. Would use them again."
- Lucan Salem
Robert's 21st Century Design
Design and Build Companies
"I have used Robert on a number of occasions, in this case it was for the removal of a chimney breast. Robert is well presented, polite, professional and does a good job. He can handle difficult situations (in this case we we had a structural support issue requiring engineering after the start) and does so without the need to complain or charge a fortune for additional works. When minor issues arise after the works have been complete I have never had a problem with him coming back to address them. Frankly given some of the terrible experiences I have had with builders, I have not hesitation recommending Robert as a competent and reputable builder."
- dyoung678
Build Team
Design and Build Companies
"Build Team have just completed the design phase of my kitchen side return extension project and we have planning permission. I'm very happy with my final plans and the whole process. My designer was very professional, courteous and helpful. He kept me informed throughout the process, gave good advice and listened to my ideas and concerns."

What is design and build?


A design and build company does pretty much what it says on the tin – designs and builds your home; helping you design your own house from scratch, pick out the small details and actually bring your dream home to life. They will take on the responsibility of planning the project, drawing up the designs, costing, sourcing the building materials and supplies, building the structure, installing any permanent features and possibly advising on the interior design of your home; all while consulting you every step of the way. A design and build company will usually employ in-house architects to handle all of the technical design aspects of your renovation or build, whether that’s to design a house or just a kitchen, and will also have main contractors or project managers that will oversee the construction work. The project managers will either work with external building contractors or construction companies, or the design and build company may employ their own builders to carry out the construction work. Either way, all the work is managed by one company and so this means communication is easier and the work is more streamlined. You’ll probably have just one design and build contract, making responsibility simpler and clearer, and also reducing costs for you. However, you should always check this design and build contract closely to see exactly what the firm is agreeing to take responsibility for, so that you don’t get left in the cold at any point.

You don’t have to build your own home to hire a design and build firm. If you are renovating one or a few rooms of a house, a design and build company can still help you – they can design a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or living room and then complete all of the renovation work for you. This could be a really good option if you are selling your home and want to increase its value quickly – hire a design and build firm to redesign and renovate a few rooms of your house without the hassle of dealing with various professionals or the time-consuming effort of doing it yourself.

If all of this sounds ideal, then start searching for design and build procurement companies that can design a house, or room, for you and discuss design and build contracts with you. If you want to look for more specialised contractors, designers, architects or builders to help you renovate or build your own home, then you can still find them on Houzz. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of design & build: Interior Designers, Landscape Architects & Garden Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Photographers.

Questions to ask a design and build company:


  • How long have you been an established design and build company?
  • How does your business work? Do you have architects, designers and builders in-house or are you a project management company?
  • Will you help me to build my own house?
  • Will you handle the interior design of my home as well?
  • What will a design and build contract involve? Do you use a Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) approved contract?
  • Have you worked on similar projects to mine before?
  • How long do you estimate each part of the process to take? Will the design aspect overlap with the construction?
  • Can you give me a written estimate for the whole project?
  • What happens if the final cost exceeds my budget?
  • Who should be my main point of contact throughout the project?
