Our Mission

The Streamline Difference – Arete!

Years in the industry have taught us that all our clients are experiencing similar issues dealing with contractors. We’ve learned that their frustrations stem from the following three issues: A lack of communication, A lack of transparency of issues as they arise, and Contractors not doing what they say they’re going to do.

Well, we listened and at Streamline Builders, we’ve developed the following solutions:

  1. Joint-Controlled Process our collaborative Team Approach & Inclusive Communication.
  2. Issues-List, our transparent process to collaboratively identify, prioritize and solve problems as they arise.
  3. Extreme-Ownership, we own everything, right and wrong, while managing expectations.

Our systems have been designed to ensure you are part of our daily communications, leaving no stones unturned. Together, we will collaborate to solve problems as they arise and, in the end, we will take ownership of the entire process, while managing expectations.

The values that were instilled in me on the job site at a young age, lead to every decision in my life. Every decision I make personally and professionally is founded in the roots of my culture, which are now the roots of my company culture as well. This is the protection I guaranty Streamline Builders has to offer you that most other companies simply can’t”.
