Passion for design. Reputation for quality. At Waterstone, we are in the business of designing and building residential and commercial environments. Every day we work with individuals and businesses to create solutions. We imagine new possibilities and have the ability to bring them into reality. We are more than just contractors - we are partners that can provide complete design services, assist with the evaluation and purchase of real estate, and provide turn key construction services.

Design Matters

Live. Play. Work. Good design not only responds to these basic functions, it enhances them. Design isn’t optional, it is essential. Waterstone is, at it’s very core, a design firm. The concepts of form and function, people and space, instruct everything we do.

Design is not just what it looks and feels like. Design is how it works. Steve Jobs

Without great design, no amount of money or craftsmanship can deliver a great project. We have the opportunity to build something significant together. Design will be our first step.

design / build

Design Build is single source responsibility for the design and construction of buildings. Typically, an owner hires an architect to design a building and a contractor to oversee the subcontractors that will build it. This separation can cause a disconnect between quality, cost and schedule. Clients lose out. Design Build is a dynamic process in which the same people are responsible for an entire building project. Our designers are also construction professionals, meaning feedback between method of construction and design is fluid and responsive. Priorities between design, cost and schedule are clear.

Project Delivery

Construction is specialization. Carpenters, plumbers, tile setters, painters…each has a set of skills that will make or break any project. Waterstone succeeds by having good design, a well defined delivery system and bringing on the best subcontractors in the local area.

We respect the building process. Construction is craft. It involves many people working towards a clear goal. Construction demands accountability. Successful teams ask questions, evaluate reality and follow through.
