Maryland Design Build Contracting

Benefits of Design-Build

Design Build is a method in the building industry to deliver a project in which design and construction services are by a single entity. This approach minimizes risks for homeowners and reduces the delivery schedule by offering in tandem the design phase and the construction phase of a project.

The traditional approach for construction projects consists of choosing a designer or architect and also a contractor. The Design-Build approach for home improvements or custom built homes offers the homeowner a single point of responsibility in an attempt to reduce overall cost.

Owings Brothers Contracting can offer Design-Build services or can build according to your architectural plans. Our project specialists have much experience in working with architects and designers and can offer support as part of your project building team for bath & kitchen remodeling or any other interior/exterior remodel, as well as, additions and building your custom home.

Design Build Testimonial

We interviewed about a dozen contractors and firms to do our first floor and kitchen renovation in Silver Spring, MD. Owings Brothers was by far the most efficient, resourceful and transparent. We could not have made a better decision and intend to use them again for future projects. Owings Brothers uses a program called Co-Construct that allows you to keep tabs on the job from an app on your phone and a portal website through a browser on your computer. Everyone in their company is trained on using Co-Construct and all activity, purchasing, financials and progress is documented through this application. The foreman loads daily photographs of the work and all questions are answered through the app, so anyone participating in your project can see the documentation. You never have to wait for a response from the company and you can always log on to check on all activity with your account. Owings Brothers supplements this digital communication with a prompt text, email or phone call whenever needed. Our job took about 3 months and was completed on time. John, our foreman was exceptional. He communicated with us clearly, anticipated problems, kept his tradesmen on task and on schedule. His craftsmanship was great and he always left our house as clean and tidy as possible at the end of the work day. Once we got into the mindset of undergoing construction, it was as pleasant a situation as possible. John oversaw the job with obvious skill and knowledge. Also, Owings Brothers provides a warranty on all their work. This causes them to do it right the first time. If not, they’ll come out to tend to any repairs. Doing your homework and interviewing multiple firms will allow you to see how exceptional Owings Brothers Construction is.

We couldn't be happier with the job Owings Brothers did in finishing our basement. Everyone there was great to work with -- from the office staff to the designer to the project manager and guys on site. When it comes to general contractors, I've found that you get what you pay for, and Owings Brothers was worth every penny. Highly recommended.

Owings Brothers did a great job thoroughly scraping and repainting the wood trim on our house. Joe Smith and his painter were very professional. They cleaned up when they were done, and it still looks great almost one year later. Definitely recommend Owings Brothers.

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Joe Smith as a peer in our professional organization over the past few years. It has been a while since a business owner has impressed me with his intense desire to learn and grow his company, being a diligent student of his business and of other successful companies as well. He is a talented and inspiring individual who cares about his team and his clients and will continue to go far. I wish you Joe, and Owings Brothers continued success into the future.

"Owings Brothers Contracting recently built a new home for my wife and me during 2015, in southern Carroll County, MD. Their workmanship was impeccable, and their workers were always friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable throughout every phase of the job. Wherever planning and construction adjustments were needed, everyone from our project manager, to those involved in the Owings' front offices worked diligently and thoroughly, to make sure every change occurred smoothly and timely. Our new home is creative in layout and gorgeous in appearance! Owings Brothers easily deserves a five star rating for this project! Lee Kiessling

Owings Brothers Contracting has recently remodeled my home with a beautiful new kitchen and open concept. They took my very small split foyer and made it feel very spacious. I would not go anywhere else. No matter what need presented itself in my remodel, they were able to come through with amazing results. Each member of the team handled the job professionally and they had great ideas. They made sure we got exactly what we wanted, but were considerate of our budget and offered advice for what may be best for us. There are not enough words to express my happiness for a job well done. Thank you Owings brothers. I LOVE IT.
