Amsted's design-build services provide a one-stop solution for homeowners looking to renovate or build a new home. Our professional design and construction experts work together under one roof, creating a seamless process that saves you time and money. We also offer you opportunities to get actively involved in the renovation process so you can achieve a greater sense of pride in your home. It's all part of the Amsted Advantage.

What We DoWhat We Do

Amsted is here for all of your home improvement needs. Whether you are looking to renovate a single room, your whole home, or you're starting from scratch to build a custom home, our experienced team will work with you through all aspects of design and construction to personalize your space.

And if your home just requires a little care without the design work, we can do that too!

Your Design-Build Team

Throughout your renovation or building process, you will work with an Amsted Project Coordinator, Designer, Project Manager and team of carpentry professionals, all dedicated to your project.

Your Project Coordinator will begin the project with you, right from your free in-home consultation. Our team of designers is available if you require architectural or interior design for your project. Your Project Manager will tend to every detail throughout your construction process, monitoring the scope of work and cost throughout.

Our team is with you every step of the way. This personalized service empowers you to be as involved as you want to be, while ensuring the project design meets your goals for function and style.

Amsted’s Design-Build Benefits

Design Innovation

Bringing together designers and builders at the start of a project enhances design inspiration, through creative brainstorming on aesthetics, functionality and building science.

“From initial conceptual meetings through to the final design, Amsted brought significant value-added expertise and realistic solutions to the challenges the project faced – a major benefit of the design-build process.”

– Sarah & Alex

Better Quality

Design-builders are experts in both fields, enabling them to see alternatives that deliver a better project than you initially imagined.

“It impressed us that the designer and construction crew took the time to discuss the situation and work together to leverage the diverse skill sets of the team to arrive at the best possible solution. The result was exceptional workmanship.”

– Jennifer & Chris

Cost Savings

Budgetary goals and true costs are considered in design, and monitored and assessed throughout construction.

“Our budget was as serious to Amsted as it was to us. We felt we got the best for our money in Amsted.”

– Co P.

Faster Delivery

Integrated project management means our construction team is brought in at an early stage in the design process, which allows your project to begin sooner, and be completed faster and with fewer challenges.

“The schedule was adhered to during the entire construction phase. For a four-month project, I think this was exceptional, and certainly impressed our neighbours.”

– Katie & Andrew

Singular Responsibility

Just one company is held accountable for cost, schedule and performance; everyone from the lead architect to the labourer is clearly focused on one goal – your goal. There is only one point of contact for you, and no confusion over responsibility.

“The entire renovation experience, from beginning to end, was a positive and happy one for us. Amsted is a first-class organization that, in our view, operates in accordance with its core values of integrity, teamwork, respect, trust, empathy and loyalty.”

– Lindsay & Ivan
