Construction that minimizes the mess

We're not going to show up with a sledgehammer, knock down walls, and then disappear for weeks at a time. We aim to complete the project quickly and with as little disruption to your life as possible.

Once a Construction Agreement is in place, we'll begin to assemble all of the materials and fixtures that we'll need to bring your new space to life. We'll wait until almost everything is in hand to begin demolition. Special order materials may take several weeks to reach us. We'll ask you for a deposit to cover the costs of these special order items, but that will be the only time we ask you to pay up front. Later invoices will reflect work that has been completed already.

Alpha Design Build

Let's bring your
dream space to life.

Keeping kids safe, pets happy and the project on schedule

We'll kick off the project with a Pre-Construction Meeting. Together with your designer and project manager, you'll meet the lead carpenter who'll be working on your project daily. Alpha's lead carpenters are master woodworkers, expert problem-solvers, and probably moonlight as rocket scientists. We do know that they turn design magic into real rooms. During this meeting, we'll review the specifics of the project, and discuss property protection, your schedule, your pets, your alarm system—everything we need to know to make the Build process as painless as possible for you.

Over the course of the project, your project manager will:

  • Keep a job schedule posted on-site
  • Meet with you weekly (at least) to answer questions and prepare you for the next week's developments
  • Schedule tradesmen such as the plumber and electrician so that work runs smoothly and continuously
  • Be available to you for questions and concerns

Your lead carpenter will:

  • Do much of the construction and installation work
  • Supervise tradesmen as necessary
  • Answer your day-to-day questions

And as the construction project wraps up, we'll assure that every last detail is completed with care.

All smiles from start to finish!


Cy was a fabulous construction manager. Always communicated with me about any issues, arrival time, etc... So polite and kind. Mary was also so great. She's so creative!

Karen & Dave, Ann Arbor, MI

We appreciate the quality of the work by everyone who came to our house. Dan Mattes was very patient and helpful and answered all of our questions. Our new bathrooms are great!

Steve and Melissa, Ann Arbor, MI

The entire Alpha team was so nice to work with. Every person we dealt with knew their craft and the final product is an example of that.

Jonathan and Amanda, Ann Arbor, MI,

We liked the people. Good working relationship. Design fit our vision. Materials and workmanship were high quality. We would definitely use you again on a future project.

Brian and Joey, Ann Arbor, MI

Ken, Mary, and Phil made the renovation process for our bathroom-laundry room pretty painless. They kept us in the loop, cleaned up at the end of the day, and always demonstrated a high level of professionalism (early/on-time, respectful, reliable, etc.) which made them stand out compared to all the other contractors we contacted.

Adrianne and Chris, Ann Arbor, MI

The new bathroom is great. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. The quality of the people working for 
Alpha is a real credit to the company.

Chris and Pam, Ann Arbor, MI

When it comes to design, cost management and construction, the team at Alpha made me feel confident and reassured that my project would be completed on time and on budget.

Jeff and Mary, Ann Arbor, MI

I have nothing but good things to say about Alpha and what they did for us and our house. What Alpha says they will do, they do. Everyone I talked to had a horror story about contractors. Alpha is the anti-horror story. Alpha is that rarest of commodities – a genuinely reliable contractor.

Tony and Lisa, Ann Arbor, MI

I would highly recommend Alpha to others. The company workers are courteous, show respect and concern for the customer and demonstrate careful and fine workmanship.

Sara, Ann Arbor, MI

In our initial meeting, Alpha was very informative giving us a step-by-step on how and when things happen through the remodel process. Alpha took what seemed to us an overwhelming job and made it a very clear, step-by-step process ending in a great new kitchen!

George and Barb, Pinckney, MI

I absolutely love my house now. It looks brand new, and I have received many compliments from my neighbors (some of whom I have never spoken to before).

Kathy, Saline, MI

To the Alpha team who helped our kitchen be such a wonderful place for us to hang out, cook, and simply enjoy. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. We were most impressed with the professionalism you people displayed while working with us. Thank you.

Fred and Barbara, Ann Arbor, MI

We had Alpha build a two-story addition on our 1927 Dutch Colonial house. The design team at Alpha did such a good job of matching the style of the house that people who see it now believe it was all part of the original house.
