ASSEMBLY ARCHITECTURE + BUILD is an Asheville-based design-build company with a unique approach to building.

Unlike other design build companies, which farm out the design part of the project, our company is made up of both licensed architects and builders. This unique combination allows us to work in-house with our clients to develop highly customized projects exceeding expectations and coming in on budget and on schedule. We call this unique approach Architect Led Design Build. Its an approach that is highly efficient and cost effective because we understand the entirety of the project from the very beginning.

At ASSEMBLY ARCHITECTURE + BUILD, we believe that our built environment shapes our daily lives and that a better built environment has the potential to improve our quality of life and conserve the earth’s limited resources.

That’s why we combined the practice of architecture and construction into a single method called Architect Led Design Build. Not only do we produce better work from the consolidated design build practice, our clients experience faster delivery times, less orchestration between separate entities, and less overall project cost. Check out our page on Architect Led Design Build to better understand why this process is revolutionizing the industry.



Architect Led Design Build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves the homeowner money and time by transforming the typical relationship of Owner-Architect-Builder in which all entities are separate to a simplified relationship in which the owner can deal with one entity that is responsible for everything. This simplification creates a streamlined alliance which fosters collaboration, teamwork, and a single flow of information between client and design/build team.

United from the outset of every project, an integrated team readily incorporates design ideas throughout the project timeline and can rapidly and affordably respond to the client’s requests and changes to the scope of work. There’s one company, one contract, and one contact person throughout the entire process from initial design concept to final project!
