Since the age of five, Scott Harris has been consumed with a fascination about the way things work and dreamed of becoming a builder. After following his calling and wining numerous awards for his work, at the age of 15, Scott’s teacher’s selected him for an experimental curriculum to immerse him in the world of architecture and construction. Following his passion at the age of 20, he earned his General Contractor’s license and launched his business building his client’s home by day and designing them by night. Although his services were quickly sought after, he felt that a better understanding of design could elevate the final product.

Scott temporarily put his clients on hold after he was hand-selected to study and work with one of the world’s most influential designers, Barbara Barry. He focused for over five years learning the best-kept trade secrets of design, harmonies and mathematical proportions. He continued to gain even more valuable experience and further evolve his design insights while working at the prestigious ‘Studio William Hefner’.

His work has been published multiple times in periodicals such as: Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Interior Design, LUXE Magazine, Metropolitan Home and Traditional Home. Some of the clients he has had the honor to work with include Paul Allen (Microsoft co-founder), John Paul Dejoria (Paul Mitchell co-founder), Kevin Costner, Kevin James, the Sultan of Brunei and many more. Some of his previous commercial projects include the Savoy Hotel in London, AOC restaurant in Los Angeles, the Saint Francis Hotel along with Restaurant ‘Michel Mina’ in San Francisco, and the flagship  retail store and cafe for Catherine Malandrino in Los Angeles.

After weaving 24 years of construction, architecture and interior design experience, Scott Harris co-founded ‘Building Construction Group‘ in 2005. The firm is based on placing the client’s needs first and bringing a welcomed, well-rounded, five-star product & service experience that has been sought out by many of Los Angeles’ elite. This unique philosophy has quickly turned this company into one of the most respected construction firms in Los Angeles.
