For over fifteen years, high-end design-build firm Logic Build, Inc. has been specializing in the design and construction of new custom homes, residential remodeling, and executive-style kitchens for discerning homeowners throughout the Bay Area.
VISION & EXECUTION
As a consumer, it’s easy to overlook the importance of the design-build connection. Unfortunately, many consumers waste precious time and money by hiring one firm to design their project and another, separate firm to build it. This disconnect is quite simply a recipe for disaster. The fact is, successful projects feature close collaboration between the people making the plans and the ones putting those plans into action. That’s why our design team and project managers work together under one roof. This coherence of vision and execution is a foundational part of the thinking that makes the Logic Build team so successful. When you work with Logic Build, you can feel confident knowing that our design team’s vision will never exceed our construction crew’s ability to execute within budget.
Our team’s goal is always to understand your vision, anticipate your needs, and enhance your quality of life.

STEVE CLOUD - PROJECT MANAGER
“I’ve worked for a few construction companies in the past, and I finally feel like I have a home with Logic Build. Each employee is treated with respect, and it feels more like a family than a boss and a bunch of employees. This is unlike any company I’m familiar with. We’re a real team of folks all working toward the same goal: a successful project!”
At Logic Build, we take great care in recruiting, hiring and training only the most skilled, trustworthy project managers in the business. Steve’s role is very hands-on, and quality is his number one priority. He begins by meeting with clients to ensure open, clear communication. After that, Steve is directly involved in every aspect of the project, including taking preliminary measurements and thoroughly investigating the building site. Our clients rest assured that Steve will be on hand for all inspections and take responsibility for communicating with city and county building officials. But Steve’s role does not stop there. He also runs a field crew and communicates, when necessary, with our industry-leading subcontractors. Steve is inspired by the opportunity to overcome the inevitable challenges that come with each new project. With over fifteen years in the construction industry, Steve’s proud to have found a home with the Logic Build family. Once you meet him, you’ll see for yourself that he’s the right man for the job.
TROY O'BRIEN - PROJECT MANAGER
“I love the hugs, gifts and cheer we receive from our clients when they see the new space we created. It’s exciting to know that they will enjoy this space with their families for many years to come.”
Project Manager Troy O’Brien has been working in the construction industry for over thirty years. Like Steve, Troy oversees the whole building process for each project he’s asked to manage. He’s personally involved in every crucial aspect of the project’s development, including site measurement and investigation, inspection oversight, communication with the city and county, navigation of the day-to-day building schedule, running an expert field crew, and guiding clients safely and sanely through each stage of their project as it unfolds. That’s a lot of responsibility, and it takes a project manager like Troy, who is not only a leader in his field, but also a great communicator, to get the job done right, every time. Troy’s been a licensed contractor for over twenty-five years and has experience working on commercial projects, tenant improvements, restaurants, hair salons, and much more. You name it, he’s probably built it. Troy particularly enjoys managing Logic Build’s high-end kitchen and bath remodels, home additions, and the many public works projects we’re hired to complete for the City of Morgan Hill. Troy considers himself lucky to be a part of the Logic Build family. Our clients tell us that Troy’s warm personality makes them feel instantly at ease, and Troy tells us that the friendships he builds with satisfied clients make his job a joy.
