Design & Build Construction


What is the difference between a design & build firm and a normal contractor?

As a design and build firm, we can handle the entire construction process, from initial design to final construction, under one contract. This allows us to communicate the details of your project more precisely to our architects, designers, subcontractors, and construction crews. With over 40 years of experience serving South Pasadena, Pasadena, San Marino, and La Canada we specialize in using this approach to efficiently bring your vision to life with a level of quality custom detail that can only be achieved with an experienced team collaborating under one roof.

Can you help me get my project approved?

Yes! We have decades of experience working with local planning departments and getting projects approved for construction. When working with you on a design, our architects know what makes a project more or less likely to be approved and will make suggestions based on experience. We will come up with a final design that is true to your original vision while cooperating with the planner’s requirements. We maintain good relationships with local planning departments and work with them to get your design approved as fast as possible.

Architecture & Design

Our incredibly talented team of architects & designers will turn your vision into detailed plans seamlessly.

We communicate with you throughout the design process. Our architects produce detailed plans of your project, including elevations and 3D renderings and we use these renderings & elevations to show you how the finished project will look before we begin construction. Once your design is complete, our architects communicate with city officials and work on getting your project approved as fast as possible.

Our crews include highly skilled craftsman and top tradespeople in the area. Doing everything in house allows us seamlessly acquire materials, dispatch craftsman to project locations, add custom features to our projects and ensure that the final result is everything you could of imagined & more.
