What is Design Build?

Design-build firms take on the responsibilities of architects, contractors, and construction companies all under one roof. These firms focus on a streamlined process, from the initial design to the estimating phase to physical construction, 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 different phases of a given project, often expediting the completion of construction significantly.

The design-build approach relies on a single point of responsibility in order to minimize cost and time to delivery while boosting collaboration, creativity, and quality by allowing the designers and builders to freely and openly communicate during the entirety of the project.

Longfellow Design-Build provides a one-stop, collaborative service by utilizing our talented in-house design staff, master tradesmen, and a network of carefully chosen professionals with whom we have worked consistently for many years and on hundreds of projects. The Longfellow team includes Customer Service & Project Managers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Architects, Engineers, Master Carpenters, Plumbers and Electricians, and our Materials and Finishing Experts. Our proven track record and reputation are as solid as the homes we build.
