NBR Design-Build is successful project after project because the Designer is also your Builder. NBR delivers creative, elegant solutions from a designer who knows and understands construction first hand. We eliminate the conflicts between the architect, designer and contractor during the construction process which is a common complaint and a leading cause of extra costs and delays in remodels. We, and our clients, are convinced that Design-Build is the best way to achieve the highest value while still meeting schedule, cost and quality goals.
