Park City Design+Build is a Modern Architecture and Construction firm that was founded by Chris and his uncle Matt Price in 2009 as a sister company to Park City Construction. Matt has been designing, engineering, and building projects in Park City since the 1980’s, and when Chris moved to Park City to design homes, they started Park City Design+Build. Today Chris & his partner Andrew Foster run the show. PCD+B caters to clients that want to push the norm, that want a home designed for the site, and to minimize the total impact to the environment.
Being a Design + Build firm has many advantages. We have the unique ability to be there for you throughout the entire project: helping you find a site, designing a home fully adapted to that location, and constructing it. Our thorough perspective of the entire designing, building, and occupying experience equates to smarter, more efficient, and cost effective buildings.
Sustainability is in the blood of Park City Design Build. We carefully evaluate each site in order to maximize the buildings potential while reducing our impact to the native landscape. We never stop learning and growing, we embrace new techniques and technologies, and keep open minds. Passivhaus principles are at the core of PCD+B’s thinking, and we have the honor of designing and building Park City’s first Pre-Certified PassivHaus building in Utah, the Summit Haus. PassivHaus principles revolve around designing the most efficient house possible in order to minimize energy demands. In Park City with our primary heating climate, this turns the focus to super insulated windows, walls, roof, floors, and special attention to the air leakage and thermal breaks throughout the envelope all to minimize the heating demand needed in the cool mountain environment.
