From Vision to Grand Opening

We value hearing your vision and immersing deeper meaning into your space, capturing your unique story and passion every step of the way.

For nearly twenty years our diverse group of architects and general contractors have journeyed with our clients from the dream stage to the grand opening. Along that journey, we help tell your story through your space. Even better, we love doing that in a way that costs less than you’d expect for the mind-blowing results we deliver. With a team made up of Imagineers, creative designers, world-class architects, and nationally experienced general contractors, you can rest easy knowing we’ve done this before.

Four Reasons Visioneering Design+Build is Different


True Collaboration

Our goal is to help bring clarity, creativity, and mind-blowing solutions to your project every step of the way. So whether you are looking for an architect or a general contractor, our team works together to make sure your project succeeds. 


Guided Concierge Service

As someone who’s been there before, we take pride in sharing the lessons learned from our years of experience. We’ll walk with you every step of the way, helping you avoid common hazards while celebrating important milestones along the way. 


Budget-Savvy Guarantee™

Your project has a budget. That doesn’t mean your vision can’t be amazing. We’ll work with you to understand your story and bring it to life in a way you may have never thought was possible. All while being trusted stewards of your resources.


Mind-Blowing Solutions

“It’s ok.” or “That’ll work.”These are not the response you’re looking for at your grand opening or big reveal. You should expect to be inspired and excited by your new space - that’s why our goal is always to deliver mind-blowing solutions.

"Visioneering worked within our budget to help us get the absolute maximum value while ensuring that the worship center would have a great look and functionality. Visioneering brought true expertise to the process, and the state-of-the-art worship center is extremely well designed, extremely well built, and highly attractive. We couldn’t be happier with the work of Visioneering and I can’t recommend Visioneering highly enough! I’m a fan of Visioneering!"
