About Design-Build

Design-build is an industry standard that takes a holistic approach to home remodeling. The same firm that designs your renovation also builds it. This approach solves a frequent challenge for homeowners of how to find and select a designer, a builder, and tradespeople separately. Since one company is responsible for both design and construction, you only need to choose one firm to oversee your project from start to finish.

There are several advantages of hiring one of the most experienced design-build firms in the Reston, VA area like Synergy Design & Construction. You will receive a design-build approach —but above all else, you benefit from the synergy and consistency of service that comes from working directly with one firm.

Benefits of Design-Build

A Strong Working Relationship with Professional Guides

The design-build process allows us to establish a strong connection from the very beginning. During our first meeting, we explore the vision for your home remodel, discussing both the overarching concept and the intricate details. This guarantees the realization of your desired outcome without the challenge of navigating an overwhelming array of details on your own. A strong relationship between us ensures your comfort throughout every phase of the project as we work together to bring your vision to life.

Understanding Costs

After we have a full understanding of your vision, we will set an investment goal early on. In doing this, we proactively steer clear of creating a design and offering a cost estimate that exceeds your budget.

Then, with our valued trade partners, our team conducts a thorough assessment of your home to anticipate any potential challenges. With our findings, we fine-tune the project cost, significantly minimizing the likelihood of surprises when construction begins. This predetermined budget will be top of mind throughout the project, ensuring a transparent process.

Time & Cost Savings

Using a design-build method reduces overall project cost and time. Our team manages the entirety of the remodel to guarantee your budget and timeline are honored. In other words, there won’t be any “I wasn’t expecting that” moments!

Single Source Accountability

Working with one company that ensures accountability and stands behind its work is not only convenient, but it also provides consistency. When the right hand knows what the left hand is doing, there are less misunderstood intentions, lower construction costs, no messy hand-offs, and the entire process takes less time.

Continuity & Seamless Transition from Design to Construction

When working with a design-build firm that is involved from start to finish, the chance of things “falling through the cracks” is greatly diminished, creating seamless continuity between the vision of the design and the realities of construction.
