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.

We’ve been through several phases of construction with Owings Brothers over the past 5 years and I really can’t express enough our level of satisfaction. Every person we’ve dealt with in the organization has been professional, honest and prompt. The communication throughout each project was great and we’ve always felt like we were their only customer. There’s something to be said about that local family business, and Owings does it right. They have a customer for life with us. I’m only giving 5 stars because 6 stars is not an option!read more

As an older couple, we needed a total conversion of our master bathroom into a handicapped accessible bathroom. From our first meeting, we knew we were dealing with total professionals. Our work started on the date stated and completed on the date stated. Each and every tradesman was accomplished, efficient and very kind. All our questions and concerns were addressed quickly. Our bathroom is functional and stunning. We are so glad we chose Owings.read more

My wife and I used Owings Brothers for several projects over the past six years. Initially, we interviewed 4 different contractors. Owings Brothers was the clear winner then and remains so. We no longer seek other bids. Their work goes beyond quality to true craftsmanship. They transformed our kitchen into a thing of beauty. Most recently, they remodeled one of our bathrooms. What was once old and drab is now shiny, beautiful, and very functional. We have at at least three more projects lined up for them in coming years. In addition to quality work, they have relationships with the top vendors for granite, tile, cabinets, and appliances. When a neighbor asked for our recommendation, we provided Joe Smith's number and email address at Owings Brothers. We would not consider using anyone else. They are like family.read more

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.read more

From start to finish, our custom new home built by Owings Brothers Contracting, was done with great care and expertise. From the design phase, through the building process, our project manager, and each subcontractor carefully consulted one another, and us, to make sure each phase was done with excellence, and openness in communication and workmanship. As a family business, an atmosphere of open dialogue created flexibility within our floor plan, as well as careful progress planning each month during construction. Even as the job is completed now, we still experience careful followup of any additional changes or alterations, as necessary. The overall experience has been outstanding and my wife and I are grateful for such a beautiful and practical home. Thank you Owings Brothers!read more
