Our Founders Chris Chu & Tyler Tappan are fueled by their passion to create a company unlike any other that approaches design & construction differently with a focus on customer advocacy & not just the bottom line. A company that prioritizes a workplace that encourages free expression & doesn’t put anyone in a box. A place where customers & team members are encouraged to express themselves freely to foster the most refined collaborative experience.
Prior to founding Freedom Design + Build, Inc. Chris & Tyler worked together at several other well known design + build companies. They quickly discovered process pitfalls that were not efficient for the clients they were serving, or the companies they were working for & began to dream of a better way to serve people. They began to develop a process that gives freedom to their clients to explore their vision and design + build without limits, but also freedom for team members to thrive in an environment where they have influence that results in exceptional customer service & superior construction projects.
In 2015 Freedom Design + Build, Inc. began as a design firm serving business to business partners. In 2020, during an uncertain time in the height of the pandemic, the team trusted their passion & doubled down on their vision by adding construction to their growing services. They wanted to add a team member who was as passionate about production as they were about design. Dave Keys joined Freedom Design + Build, Inc. as Director of Production. The company continued to grow organically, with open-minded, passionate creatives who enjoy helping people.
Freedom Design + Build, Inc. aims to make a real impact in the world by using safe green technologies & helping local & international communities
– because in the end, we’re all in this together as a human race.
