Creative design and precision building is expected. A simple approach of thoughtful dialogue and generous support is why we’re different.

Aforma is a residential designer, a general contractor and a single point of project management. We guide you through design, engineering, permitting, budgeting and schedule, and construction. Reduce risk by working with one trusted partner through a cloud-based dashboard, understand and control timelines, avoid dropped batons and miscommunication, convey details once and avoid many frustrating hours coordinating between multiple managers.

Our Process


Let’s make a plan

Starting with a free consultation, we learn about you, your family and your dreams. Together, we find a common ground between potential and price. Learn quickly about how the City’s zoning and building regulations may affect your program and how lending may help.


Work with us to inspire

Visualize every piece of marble and oak floorboard during the design phase. Capture every aspect of your home before it’s built. By using state-of-the-art design and visualization tools, Aforma is able to produce inspiring renderings quickly.

Quality and delivery

Aforma consolidates design, permitting and construction services, simplifying the workflow and reducing risk. Avoid the stress of personally juggling a complex design and custom building process. Focus on life while we focus on project delivery.

For now and for later

Our structures resist the elements in beautiful ways and we never leave your side even after our services are rendered. Aforma can provide comprehensive maintenance contracts, scheduled in advance. Like a friendly doctor or a favorite teacher, your builder should stay with you for a long time.
