Why We Do It
The Elevate mission is to serve our clients with the highest level of architectural design and construction management possible. We strive to make their building project a positively memorable experience.
What We Do
We believe that the design/build process gives our clients the best possible outcome for their project by building a trusting relationship and seamless communication from design through construction. Design is the platform on which our client’s ideas are brought to life. Construction is a matter of proper management, which includes a sensible plan for making material choices, a reasonable schedule, a reasonable budget, and maintaining clear communication.
“Elevate just wrapped up a whole-house remodel project for us. It was my first time on a home project of this size, and they were great to work with. Going with a design/build firm has a number of advantages, the biggest, in my opinion, is eliminating the finger pointing between the Architect and the contractor, and having them all on the same team. Justin, Chris, and the rest of their team were great at taking our ideas and incorporating/refining them into the design. Construction was well-planned and executed. Also, I was impressed with the work of all the different trades they brought to the project. Overall, I would recommend them without hesitation for those interested in a home remodel”
“Justin and Jeff Barrett were AMAZING!! Such great people and good quality work too! Justin and Jeff have done multiple projects at our home in Orinda. They care, they respond quickly, and they get the job done in a timely fashion! They take care of all the details. They hire really great subcontractors as well. Their project manager, Chris was amazing also. He gave us a timeline of things they planned on getting done that specific day. We will likely use them again for a future projects.”

One of the greatest success stories coming out of our house remodel was meeting and working with Jeff Barrett of Elevate Design Build! Contemporary, creative, flexible, timely, innovative, great sense of humor, really interesting to talk to, super guy – simply brilliant!
We had a general idea of what we wanted to do and Jeff executed flawlessly to meet our core objective. He responded extremely well to input and requests for changes. What made the experience really special was the slew of ideas he proposed to make our new house even more fantastic. His ideas and advice ranged from structural reconfigurations to materials for floors and types of doors. He even took us to a local stone company to show us different tiling options.
His architectural drawings were immaculate and so comprehensive that our plans breezed through the HOA review and City Planning – rare I’m told. We were so impressed with his designs and work ethic that we wanted to continue the project with Elevate into the construction phase. Unfortunately we were already contractually committed to another contractor.
I would highly recommend Jeff and Elevate to anyone thinking about a remodel – big or small! You will not be disappointed.”
