Additions & Alterations

We hear from our clients often times that that the local regulations are preventing them from adding a simple addition to their home.  While this may be true in some situations, we have found that with a little imagination, that we can design beautiful and functional spaces that meet all of their needs.  At Monarch, we take pride in our ability to find refined ways of combining existing structures with new construction that creates seamless architecture.

New Construction

With a full range of design services, we can tailor the design process to fit any of our client’s needs and expectations. With the use of 3-D modeling software you will have the ability to see all elements of your project prior to construction. This technology grants our clients the capability to review all of the interior and exterior spaces and even evaluate solar heat gains. It is our goal to provide all of the information that is so vital for our clients to make well-formed decisions about the design of their project.

Commercial and Interior Fit Out

As small business owners ourselves, we find commercial projects uniquely appealing. Commercial Design is about creating a positive experience for your customers and employees while supporting your Bottom Line.  Our ability to streamline the design process combined with understanding of construction costs bring value to any project.

We provide design, management and construction services all under one roof. This allows us to make the best use of your time.


As Designers and Builders, we are able to incorporate the most efficient techniques into your design avoiding potential trouble spots.

When it comes time to build, our knowledge of the design and owners intent helps to create a streamlined work flow. This is very helpful in eliminating many of the budget and construction issues that can arise when contractors and architects do not work together.

At Monarch, we collaborate with the engineers, interior designers and subcontractors required for your specific needs early in the design phase. Through this process, it becomes possible to determine exactly what materials and labor are needed even before the plans are approved. This means that you leave little to chance and have more control over your design and budget.


Our clients make up the most important part of the design-build team. At Monarch we recognize that the people we work for are as diverse as the projects they build. Being able to provide design services for contractors and other industry professionals is quite a bit different from completing an addition for a young family.

​We take pride in the fact that we can be flexible, understanding and accommodating to any projects needs however big or small.
