FR Review:
Don't let the hip, progressive aesthetic of Minardos Construction fool you—this experienced GC brings the efficiency of its commercial operations to custom residences as well. Minardos Construction tackles assignments that range from tenant improvements to galleries to high-end custom homes. While the firm's resume includes notable architects and designers, it prides itself on working well with young, fresh talents—as long as communication is clear. Minardos also cites "joy and humor" as two on a long list of governing values, which should be a clue to the joie de vivre infusing this firm's blend of art and architecture.

A graduate of the Wharton Business School, principal George Minardos pursued a degree in architecture before his passion for building eclipsed his interest in pure design. References tell us this foundation enables Minardos to work well with architects. We hear the firm prefers to jump into projects early, during the strategic stage, providing insightful budgetary advice and details on the reality of executing challenging design elements. All projects have full-time field supervisors and project managers with GC experience. The firm is technically oriented, with DSL links, computers and schedule software on-site, allowing for immediate electronic communication and processing of paperwork. In-house carpenters and laborers round out the team. Minardos Construction's preconstruction services run from conceptual to schematic. The firm also provides risk analysis, with experience in hillside building.

Minardos Construction's familiarity with contemporary materials, such as steel and concrete, can be seen in its gallery and museum work, including the Santa Monica Museum of Art and Huntington Library. In 2002, Minardos captured the Golden Nugget Award for best Custom Home, in the 3,500 to 6,000 square foot category. All residential work is done at a negotiated fee.

Representative Client Comments:
"It's rare to be able to laugh on a job, especially a job with tight deadlines. But the mood just seemed lighter with them around." "Artists with calendars, it's amazing!" "If you look at mod, hillside homes from the last five years—they either did it or they studied it."
