What Clients Have to Say:
"Simply the best contracting experience, period. We hired Justin to build our custom home and from start to finish, it was everything we could have hoped for. Justin is meticulous in his work and it shows in every detail of our home, which is not only well built, it is stunning! He notified us of even the most minor issues and kept us right on time and budget. I highly recommend him for any job." Michelle & Todd Miller • March 2016
"We couldnt be happier with the house that Justin built! He is a very experienced builder who is committed to building a quality home. Justin is a perfectionist who takes great pride in his work. We were very impressed with the level of experience, knowledge and quality of workmanship of all his subcontractor crews from the framers to the finish carpentors. They were all top notch! Our home exceeded our expectations." Nancy & Craig Ferris • April 2017“
We moved to Colorado from Minnesota in the summer of 2014 and had about 4 days to make one of the largest and most important purchases of our life – a new home for our family. We looked at dozens of homes and none of them met our needs or expectations for the price. The very LAST home we looked at was Justin’s custom built home in Larkspur that was about 90% complete. The house immediately felt like our “home” and after meeting with Justin, discussing a few changes and additions we wanted to include in the final build, we knew we were home and working with a builder we could trust. Justin’s passion for quality and for ensuring his clients are satisfied was the reason we had him come back a year ½ later and build our full detached garage that matches the style/quality of our house perfectly!” Terence & Erin McMilon • 2014
Justin received his Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management from Michigan State University in 1999. He began his career with Pulte Homes of Michigan (NYSE: PHM) working several years as a Construction Superintendent before being promoted to Purchasing Manager for the division. A subsequent promotion brought Justin to Colorado. After six years with Pulte Homes, Justin took a position at MDC Holdings (NYSE: MDC) in National Purchasing where he was in charge of negotiating national vendor contracts, estimating building costs and assisting with purchasing for multiple markets. During Justin's 14 years of employment with these two home builders, he gained a great understanding of controlling house building costs, managing subcontractor relationships and establishing efficient building practices. Justin's in depth knowledge of the building process provided him with a great understanding of what clients were looking for in a homebuilder. In 2013, he launched Universal Design & Construction, LLC and built his first custom home. Justin's excellent project management skills and over-riding concern for his clients has allowed him to build a core crew of tradesman and craftsmen that share those standards. Universal Design and Construction, LLC allows each buyer to plan their dream house from the beginning and work with Justin personally throughout the build process.
