Centoni Restoration and Development, Inc. is a design-build firm based in San Francisco. We believe in collaboration with our clients, improving the function and value of our clients’ homes, and honoring the original architecture of the structure.

We focus on delivering excellent customer care while ensuring on time and budget development projects.

We set up as a design-build firm — rather than a more conventional system of architect and general contractor — because it offers our clients many benefits, including:

TEAMWORK — We’re all in this together, and we all have the same goal – to arrive at a successful project that meets or exceeds the client’s expectations. When challenges are encountered on a project (and there are always challenges), everyone rolls up their sleeves and works on solutions.

ACCOUNTABILITY — We are accountable for everything from schedule to budget to the final look. Since we are designing the project and building the project, we pay much more attention to pricing and scheduling in the design phase. That helps avoid the common pitfall of “our remodel cost twice as much as the architect said it would.” We focus on results, not on excuses.

CONTINUITY — A design-build firm is involved from start to finish, which adds efficiency and efficacy. We don’t miss the small details that turn into big issues.

INVOLVEMENT — Design-build makes room for homeowners to participate in the design and construction of their homes. By getting involved, they are guaranteeing the outcome and satisfaction of their goal, and they have lasting pride in the work.

COMMUNICATION — We believe in open, honest, and consistent communication. We want our clients to understand the process and what’s happening at every step.

TIME — Design-build creates opportunities for clients to sit with big decisions, ask questions, and consider their options. This way of working is highly adaptive and responsive in the field. Big decisions can be revisited during construction without change orders or additional fees.
