Removing my prefix
Makes a familiar sound
Removing my infix
Helps you search all around

Removing my suffix
Means to make me whole
As a noun I’m complete
As a verb I’m yet to be so

Who am I?

You are

building

Removing my prefix \ Makes a familiar sound

ding

Removing my infix \ Helps you search all around

bing (really?)

Removing my suffix \ Means to make me whole

build

As a noun I’m complete \ As a verb I’m yet to be so

A 'building' is a complete structure, while 'building' it, it's unfinished.

Maybe a bit of a stretch but

fashion

which as a verb isn't done until in the past tense. '

But as a noun represent the item or the concept.

As I said, a stretch because there isn't any prefix or suffix.
