Former Clients of Plateau
We highly recommend Plateau Building Group for custom residential design and construction. Our first interaction with Plateau was through meeting Dave Keefe. Dave’s enthusiasm, confidence, and knowledge of the local real estate market coupled with his insight on land availability in Mountain View sold us the possibility of building our dream house in downtown Mountain View.
Within 60 days of that first meeting, we purchased the land that Dave mentioned was available, entered into a design-build contract with Plateau, and began demolition of the existing structure. Within the design meetings, Dave’s knowledge of Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) structures and building material costs were essential in helping us design an environmentally efficient and beautiful home within our budget.
We broke ground on the new construction of the home, approximately one year later. At that time, we had the pleasure of meeting the entire team, Jay Brown, Tomio Izumi, and shortly thereafter, Daniel Fonseca. Throughout the process of construction, it became apparent that each of these individuals had their own expertise in critical components that we needed to make this project successful. Jay was extremely cost conscious which helped us to understand real time implications to our budget when we made modifications. Additionally, due to his extensive knowledge in concrete, he ensured that the foundation and structure of our home were strong and well-built. Tomio consistently maintained a pleasant nature even at the most stressful times during the construction process. He has a great rapport with his team and a solid technical background in mechanical systems—such that we knew our complex radiant heating and solar panel systems, or in essence, the heart of our home, were in good hands. Finally, the essence of the home was cultivated by Daniel. Daniel worked with us intensively to guide us through everything from hardware and tile choices, to paint and cabinetry in a manner that was both creative and grounding at the same time. Daniel’s artistic ability is complimented by his background in construction which was instrumental in making our vision a reality.
