Firm profile and philosophy
MacLeod Design & Construction, established in 1995, is a full service architecture and general contracting firm specializing in creative, innovative and high quality residential projects with an emphasis on customer service and environmental sustainability. We enjoy challenging and unusual projects that require a high degree of care and finesse in terms of the process and finishes. We consistently work with well-known local architects who have the highest standards in their work. We have successfully completed several projects on some of these architects’ own homes.
We also do our own architectural work ranging from kitchens and baths to whole house remodels or new construction. As design/builders, we are able to integrate our practical knowledge of construction materials and methods with the higher vision of well-designed beautiful spaces. Because we do cost estimating as part of the design process, we are able to adjust the project early on to accommodate the clients’ budget and avoid any large cost surprises once the design is completed.
We give high priority to environmental concerns such as renewable and recycled building materials, natural and low-toxicity materials, recycling of construction waste, energy efficiency and daylighting, and alternative energy possibilities such as photovoltaic solar panels and solar hot water panels. We are currently interested in the concept of net zero energy homes. Our goal is to create lasting and beautiful work, maintain friendly and positive long term relationships with our clients, while making the design and construction process as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
