What makes NBR unique

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.
Also, NBR Design-Build tailors its services to your project needs and provides continuous oversight from start-to-finish. We also work with clients wanting a hands-on approach and who want to participate actively in the process with us. NBR Design-Build works with you to select quality materials based on your budget. We are experienced in combining the right finishes for a high end result regardless of the amount spent on the project. NBR has a breadth of available local and internet based resources spanning from the ultra high end to the more economical bang for your buck. You can select the finishes yourself or let us do it for you.

NBR Design-Build is reliable and dependable. We have multiple repeat customers who value NBR’s combination of design, construction and business savvy skills. Our reputation speaks for itself. Please feel free to contact us for a list of references and/or see our testimonials here
