Seaside Builders, Inc Has been working as a Design/Build Team in Virginia Beach, VA since 1998. We enjoy the challenge of working closely with its clients to transform their visions and dreams into the unique architectural features of their new home, remodel or addition. The creation of such a truly custom home demands not only close attention to detail and precise workmanship, but the ability and willingness to listen to shared ideas and suggestions. Seaside Builders, Inc. is proud of its strong reputation as a 3rd generation builder for building quality homes and renovations. It is our core belief in the importance of customer satisfaction that focuses on quality and attention to detail with our experienced team of employees.

We appreciate the opportunity to work with you using our own Home Designer or yours. However, please do not hesitate to come to us with your architect or home designer. We work well both ways.


Design-Build. You might say it’s a simple approach to construction. A team, working together from start to finish in open communication and purposeful collaboration to deliver otherwise unachievable results. It’s the notion that when owners sit at the same table with the Home Designer and builder, engineer and estimator, great ideas — the best ideas — are born. And the way is paved for creative solutions to take hold, resulting in costs minimized, schedules streamlined and efficiencies realized.


Design-Build is a construction delivery method that provides owners with a single point of contact for both the design and construction phases of a project. One entity holds single-source responsibility and contractual risk for every aspect of a build — from estimation, assessments and pre-construction to architecture, schematics, engineering, subcontracting, construction and post-construction. This entity, the Design-Builder, manages all contracts with companies, such as subcontractors, equipment vendors and materials providers.
