Blending architectural and construction expertise has paid off for Gerber Berend Design Build, a company helping clients from blueprints to building.

“We do the design and the build,” said co-owner Hans Berend, who partnered with architect Jeff Gerber in 2009. “It’s a much smoother process. The collaboration between the client, builder and designer starts at the very beginning, and we price it from the get-go so it doesn’t part with a client’s budget.”

The company does everything from new builds to additions and remodels, all over town.

“We do a lot in Old Town, but you can find our projects in every neighborhood in Steamboat,” Berend said. “It’s been a great partnership.”
