    Best Construction Companies in Los Altos

    Cody Vermette Group (formerly Cody-Brock Commercial Builders) has provided services to the greater San Francisco Bay Area since 1994. The company's primary goal is to surpass each client's expectations and offer them a hands-on, personalized approach. Over 90% of its projects come from repeat clients and recommendations due to the team's dedication to superior quality, affordable pricing, and excellent customer service. With the assistance of the architects from The Hayes Group, the CVG team constructed 480 Lytton for Wing Venture Capital. A 6,000-square-foot office building had to be torn down for this project. The team re-used the concrete tilt-up panels as structural elements for the new wood-framed building. An aluminum-clad panel façade, glass fin solar blinds on the second level, tile, and tempered glass storefronts are all aspects of the new structure. Energy-efficient systems are featured in the interior tenant upgrades, including the HVAC system, motorized blinds, and architectural lighting. Frameless glass fronts in private offices serve as a focal point; the unique glass and stainless steel railing system on an inside staircase provides the main centerpiece.
