Mission Statement

In the increasingly complex and ever-changing world of construction and development, we strive to be a broadly-focused, multi-disciplinary advisor, helping our clients navigate the key decisions and challenges of a complex real estate project.

Whether you are a first-time homeowner or a seasoned real estate developer, we offer personalized services tailored to the specific job at hand.  Having been partners in many deals ourselves, we are sensitive to the constraints of cost, schedule, and risk management.  Having hired and managed other design professionals, we provide the level of service that we have come to expect from our own consultant teams.  

We are a vertically-integrated design and development consultancy, and would be privileged to provide turnkey solutions for your next successful project!

Hayes Shair, AIA, LEED AP

Hayes is a practicing architect and real estate developer with eighteen years of experience in the building design and construction industry.  As an undergraduate of UC Berkeley, with a Masters from Columbia University, he has been involved in every facet of the design, development, and construction process, with a focus on Residential development and design. 

Having been an architect, a design-build contractor, and real estate developer, he has defined himself time and again as a professional with the breadth of knowledge to put all the pieces together.  With a specialization in managing complex entitlements on constrained infill sites, he brings a tactful, strategic approach to navigate the process seamlessly and efficiently.  

His experience has included affordable multi-family housing, high-end single family spec homes, multi-family condos, interior gut-renovations, townhouse planned communities, infill projects, master planning, and hillside subdivisions.

Hayes is an outspoken housing advocate and strongly believes that housing is a right, not a privilege.  He regularly supports housing non-profits including Habitat for Humanity, Abode Housing, Bridge Housing, and is a member of the AIA East Bay.

In his spare time, he enjoys playing sports and spending time with his wife, daughter and son.
