INNOVATIVE AND SUSTAINABLE HOMES SINCE 1997
Award winning Custom Home Builder, Collins Design-Build’s passion comes from knowing that we’ve carefully managed, protected and added value to your home–one of your most important financial & personal assets–that we have become friends and trusted advisors for all improvements to your property.
Visiting you in your finished home is always a celebration and acknowledgement of the creativity, communication, and mutual respect that built your home. We are an Unlimited Licensed Builder and are not limited by project size or value.
Collins Design-Build understands that building a new custom green home is a creative and collaborative process. We strive to provide a total team effort dedicated to fulfilling clients’ dreams and desires from concept to completion. Our success is measured by the satisfaction of our clients.
Custom Home Builder Chad Collins transforms clients’ vision into elegant, fashionable, timeless homes while maintaining a reputation for skilled craftsmanship, superior quality, and incomparable client service. Collins Design-Build is consistently ranked in the Triangle Business Journal Book of Lists as one of the top custom home builders in the Triangle.
Since 2010 100% of our homes have been Certified Green By Home Innovations Research Lab. 100% have meet the qualifications of ENERGY STAR and Certified Natural Wildlife Habitats. Our Average HERS Index Rating is 59. A number we are proud of as it’s not all that easy in Zone 3 of North Carolina to score this low without renewables like solar.
Chad’s commitment to excellence has earned Collins Design-Build numerous top industry awards, including the National Certified Green Professional Builder of the Year. The Durham, Orange & Chatham’s Builder of the Year, and twice awarded the coveted Triangle Sales and Marketing Council’s MAME Building Company of the Year. Chad is one of fewer than 50 Accredited Master Builders in the state of North Carolina. In 2018 North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper Appointed Chad to the North Carolina Home Inspector Licensing Board.
