Choosing a Chicago Northshore Design Build Firm

Choosing a Chicago North Shore design build firm? What you should look for.

A good North Shore design build firm should offer a turnkey solution to handling your project from conception to completion with in-house designers, architects, and construction crew. This all-inclusive process means less involvement from you.

Experience & Reputation:

The more time a company has been in business, the more experience they’ve had, which increases the level of trust. A big part of their continued business will result from the reputation they’ve built – client referrals and testimonials are a confirmation of this.

Design Flexibility:

A good design build firm should be able to accommodate any client’s style ensuring that the design aligns with their taste. This capability is maximized when a company can also include custom cabinetry to make any design configuration possible.

Quality of Work and Sensitivity to Surroundings:

Attention to detail can differentiate a design build firm’s quality of work from the rest, whether it’s a wall of built-ins or a seamless addition. Exterior transformation projects should reflect the character of the neighborhood and local preservation awards can affirm a Chicago North Shore design build company’s skills. Photos of their portfolio on the website or social media platforms are good representations of their craft.
