Art & Craftsmanship
At Altmann & Associates, we enjoy the art of construction and the challenges that accompany it. Every project is unique and requires imagination, creativity, and craftsmanship to succeed. We are an independently-owned construction company with experience in all aspects of residential construction from architectural concrete and foundation work to the highest quality mill work and trim.
Drawing from experience
Whether we are restoring an old Victorian or Craftsman home, or working with the close tolerances demanded by a mid-century modern or steel-frame home, our years in the construction business—nearly three decades—provides us with a wealth of experience from which we can draw. Our team of skilled and friendly carpenters and expert subcontractors are truly interested in realizing your vision and exceeding your expectations.

Plan for building in design
Design phase input
We are often hired at the same time as the architect to provide critical cost input during the design phase to aid in keeping the project within its intended budget. This team approach is often the key to the ultimate success of a project with valuable, practical construction expertise provided during the critical design development phase of the project.
When a final design is arrived at we generate a detailed estimate and a fixed price contract. This gives the owner the greatest amount of control over design and budget and prevents the issue of the beautiful but unaffordable project.
Under certain conditions such as expedited projects or for clients who prefer total flexibility during the course of construction we propose time and material billing.

Our home base is in Oakland on the Berkeley border. That central location gives us the ability to serve clients throughout the region as well as access to some of the best talent, materials, and resources. Reach out, and let's talk about your project.
