Founded in Steamboat Springs, Colorado in 2009, the GB Design Build team includes Steamboats top tier Architects and Construction professionals. GB offers clients the option to work together as a Design Build Team, an Architect, or as General Contractor and Builder, promising a home building experience that combines inspired design, efficiency, and superior craftsmanship through outstanding communication and collaboration.



Hans Berend and Jeff Gerber, both long time Steamboat residents, co-created GB to pursue their passions of design and build, adding their creative mark to the mountain community they love. In 2021, several dedicated team members were added as GB partners to lead the company into the future, including: Bert Larson, Operations; David Hoffman, Architect; and Adam Hartstein and Skip Warnke, Project Managers.

Now led by Hans, the GB team designs, builds or remodels mountain homes for families to gather, relax, and live within reach of the natural mountain environment, surrounded by beautiful materials and creative, thoughtful design. Every home GB designs and/or builds reflects the clients style and life. Mountain Contemporary, Modern Farmhouse, Old Town Contemporary, Mid-century Mountain, or something entirely unique, are all part of the GB repertoire.
