We build spaces where people & business thrive

About Summit
Design + Build

In 2005, Adam Miller started Summit Design + Build with the goal of building a company where people loved showing up to work every day; a place where employees could thrive. He also knew a great general contracting and construction management firm is built on a foundation of outstanding, long-term client relationships. That meant delivering on every promise and commitment made and like a magnet, Summit Design + Build immediately attracted great people and diverse, complicated projects.

Since, Summit Design + Build has quickly grown to be one of Chicago’s smartest, most innovative general contractors by focusing on one key proposition: building spaces where people & business thrive. Now in our 18th year, we remain driven by this tenet and continue to leverage our diverse experience and financial strength.

Chicago Roots,
National Focus

Summit Design + Build has deep roots in Chicago’s Fulton Market, from our first office on Lake Street to our renovated office building on Carpenter Street. In February of 2020, we moved into our new home at 1040 W. Fulton Market as we continue to grow in tandem with the neighborhood we’ve long called home.

Summit Design + Build has grown our national footprint and focus with the opening of three regional offices. In 2017, we opened our first regional office in Tampa, Florida and in 2020, we opened our Austin, Texas regional office and in 2022 we opened our Kannapolis, North Carolina office.  This expansion has given us the opportunity to fulfill projects in the Midwest, Southeast and Southwest.
