London 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 London 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 in London 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 London 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 in London
Plus Rooms
Design and Build Companies in London
"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!"

Build Team
Design and Build Companies in London
"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."

Obespoke & Obbard Design & Development
Design and Build Companies in London
"Over the last 3 years I've worked extensively with Obbard on various high-end residential projects, providing soft-furnishings and window dressings. The Obbard design briefs are always clear, well thought-out and to the highest standards of contemporary, luxury design and functionality. I rate Obbard as one of my favorite, design-savvy clients. Budgets, scope of works and time scales are always clearly defined which makes the process much easier from the supply point of view. Invoicing, payment and admin are always prompt. It is always a pleasure to deal with Obbard and I would recommend them whole-heartedly."

Design and Build Companies in London

- Varun Malhotra
Zulufish
Design and Build Companies in London
"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."

Akiva Projects Ltd
Design and Build Companies in London
"St James design was recommended to me by a colleague in work when I was working in London I hired James to carry out a bathroom installation at my house in Berlin. On his first visit we went through designs of the type of bathroom I could have Within the area given. I wanted a bathroom that offered a calm and appealing approach whilst being minimalistic. I wanted to implement a clean storage systems that was hidden within the wall. James managed to supply me a beautiful shower with soft porcelain Tiles a nice glass shower screen and a beautiful bathroom suite. Everything is hidden away and it looks very clean and spacious. I will be definitely recommending him to my friends and family"

Grand Design London
Design and Build Companies in London
"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."

Barnes Design have always shown great ability to create a team atmosphere on every project, which is a key ingredient to all projects success. I highly recommend them, and look forward to working on more projects together in the future."

Fresh home builders UK LTD
Design and Build Companies in London
"Fresh home builders did the conplete fit out of the Maitre Choux store in South Kensington. While it was not an straightforward location, they managed the building site very well and provided a very high end level of results which has been praised by our customers since we opened. They have also been responsive when it came to coming back for touch ups and small repairs, which has been very convenient. I would recommend them and use them again."

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 in London 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 London design and build firm. If you are renovating one or a few rooms of a house, a design and build company in London 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 in London 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 in London 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 London design and build company:


  • How long have you been an established design and build company in London?
  • 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?
