By developing this strong working relationship from the start, project construction is often faster, less tedious, and more cost-effective.

The Hendel Approach means the highest levels of efficiency and accountability to ensure every project runs smoothly at every step of the way. Your interests are our interests. Your priorities are our priorities.

The Hendel Approach means both substance and style. We are a design-sensitive firm, deeply passionate about architecture. This means that we take the worry out of the architect’s job during construction. We provide a unique kind of value-engineering, as we meet targeted budgets without sacrificing quality or aesthetics.

The Hendel Approach means combining all this personal attention with the level of organization typically only found in larger commercial operations. From managing projects and tracking costs to updating schedules and providing professionalism, the Hendel Approach is completely unique to the residential home-building experience.

The Hendel Approach means that everything is always done right. It’s that simple.

“Beautiful Design, Sound Structure, Sensible Flow, and Immense Detail, these words describe what we do.

Who we are and the foundation of our company is, STEWARDSHIP.”

– Rick and Amy Hendel

At Hendel Homes, we believe in a philosophy of stewardship; this translates into putting service before self and looking out for the interests of our clients and designers. We do this by focusing on each detail along the way, not just the outcome of a building project.

A service mindset involves listening to more than just our clients’ words; it informs our consultative and collaborative style. Stewardship means approaching each task with humility. It’s honoring the wisdom and solutions our collaborators offer in any given circumstance. Our clients develop confidence in us because they see we’re working with their best interests in mind.

As builders, we deliver architecturally intricate homes with uncompromising quality. Through careful project planning and materials selection, we construct sound structures that enclose environments calibrated to your lifestyle.

We facilitate communication between owners, architects, designers, engineers, the local building department, and the members of our construction team. When key design decisions arise, we notify clients and provide them with necessary information. We strive to keep projects on track, always achieving a finished product that best reflects the client’s goals.

Hendel builds uncompromising quality in highly-detailed residences and renovations.  Our design sensitive firm provides high-expertise in construction management, scheduling software, cost tracking systems, and service-oriented professionalism.  Hendel’s commitment to excellence and transparency earns the trust from clients for life.  With an enthusiastic, collaborative-team, and innovative experience, we partner with our clients to discover and elevate their style of life.
