Meckauer Design+Build, Inc.
About this pro
Robert and his team were a God-send for us! Our project was a moderately large one (for us). Robert was able to give us several design ideas and we were able to find one that we could both afford and LOVE! Robert also did the general contracting and kept us within budget and within time constraints. He found us qualified, reasonable and talented carpenters, electrician, painters, etc. We are SOOO glad we found Meckauer Design and Build. We would recommend them unconditionally.Feb 18, 2017
We spent the last year with our home in shambles because we decided to remodel our kitchen and ended up with a contractor that had no ethics. One error after the other, the final straw was when the "contractor" literally burst one of our pipes and almost caught our house on fire and melted our electrical line without even bothering to tell us. There was a bright light in the midst of the wreckage. When Meckauer Design and Build came to evaluate our home Robert identify the errors, came up with incredible solutions no one else seem to be able to find, he quickly assessed and found that the previous contractor did not even have the permits in place even though he had posted papers on our home. Yes the previous contractor lied and put our home at risk! Robert knew the laws surrounding construction and how to rectify what has happened to us. Everything he does is in blueprints and has gotten done efficient and effectively. Robert documents and shares his knowledge on how to right a wrong. He is very well versed on California Contractors License boards regulations and bonding. If you need help with filing papers or trying to resolve something with another contractor he will walk you through the steps. He does not only the know the laws, he follows the law and will help you understand the law. What a team! Jean his office manager is continually checking, keeping us informed. and and Robert has more in the past few weeks than the other contractor was in the entire year and it is done right with real live inspections. This has been challenging year and seeing the progress in the kitchen these past few week has been such a treat. It has been a pleasure to be here while talented professionals who are righting wrongs. The work is beautiful and the contractors Robert works with and has choose have been both skilled and professional. We have repeated been shocked when we came home to clean countertops when dry wall has been cut and clean floors when wood work has been done. If anyone finds themselves looking for someone who can assess work, correct work, or work from the ground up this is the go to company. Our only wish is that we had Robert and Jean from the start. Out of this frustrating series of events the end has been a pleasure because of the insight these professionals have brought to the job. We are now resting assured that our home is safe and well take care of because of their ethics, insight and skills.Feb 9, 2017

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Assess their needs and desires, any challenges or possible obstacles to create a preliminary workscope and budget. For a minimal fee I create a basic sketch of the proposed design and determine their budget parameters. If they like the design, and I feel confident I can work within their budget, we enter into a contract and begin designing the plan. This works for a remodel, renovation or new build.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Architecture from UC Berkeley. I have over 35 years experience in design, permit expediting, project management and construction.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After graduating from Berkeley, I started swinging a hammer on construction sites so I could learn about the ground up process to compliment the conceptual process I had just mastered. From there I moved up to project manager and freelance designer.
