Carmel Building & Design, Inc., established in 2000, is located in Carmel, California. We specialize in applying advanced practices including Passive House to designing and building fine custom homes and extensive remodeling projects. We are working to change a “better way to build” into “the way to build” high-quality homes in the Monterey Bay area. Carmel Building & Design sets the standard and leads the transition by example. And in concert with others, we influence the evolution of building standards and practices in our region and across the U.S.
As long-time advocates and devotees of environmentally mindful design and construction, we apply advanced building science principles to every project.
Our capabilities and expertise feature Passive House and electrification, and also include Zero Net Energy, LEED and Living Building Challenge. These strategies significantly reduce a home’s demand for energy resources, improve indoor air quality, comfort and durability, increase the home’s value and are easy on the planet.
We build beautiful, high-quality, resource-efficient, healthy homes, impeccably matched to the objectives and preferences of our clients. And we provide an exceptional level of communication and collaboration with our clients and with the select professionals involved in design, specification and certification of their homes.
