SCOTT HARRIS, Co-Founder & Chief Operating Officer

T 323.297.2220


Since he was 5 years old, Scott spent his childhood inventing contraptions and experimenting on how to perfect a home. He was 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, construction and design.

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.

After weaving 24 years of construction, architecture and interior design experience, as COO, Scott Harris co-founded Building Construction Group in 2005 with stellar AIA architect, William Hefner. The firm is based on placing the client’s needs first and bringing a welcomed, well-rounded, luxury 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. Scott is deemed one the foremost building (general) contractors and the industry’s noted “triple threat” (design, architecture and building) “go-to” experts for residential and commercial properties specializing in environmental (“green”), new technology, renovation, deconstruction, reconstruction, restoration and building as an art form.

Scott has not only redefined what a home should be, but his vision has reached millions, stretching what we thought was the norm for simple construction. Scott’s vision, creativity and mission reach farther than mere construction.

He is a favorite among a long list including billionaires and celebrities (i.e., Paul Allen, Taio Cruz, Kevin James, Kevin Costner, John Paul DeJoria, London’s Savoy Hotel, LA’s AOC restaurant, San Francisco’s Saint Francis Hotel, restaurants for Gordon Ramsay and Michel Mina, creating elite and jaw-dropping crème de la crème estates including actor-environmentalist, Ed Begley Jr.’s new certified LEED PLATINUM home.

Scott’s unique approach to building has landed him guest and featured appearances in numerous, highly respected media outlets such as Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family Show, Lifestyle Magazine TV, Studio 11 Fox News, CBS, TV, KTLA, HGTV, Adam Carolla Show, Evox Television, and magazines such as Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Luxe, House Beautiful, Interior Design, Los Angeles Times, Metropolitan Home, Oprah, Going Organic, Traditional Home, Cliche, Milieu, Focus and many more.

Scott doesn’t just build a house, he creates a home and lifestyle for his clients.

From the heart of a family man, “Our goals extend well beyond building the next estate, they project toward building relationships and a respectable, honorable future and environment for our family’s generations to come. “I want to change the course of construction to give people healthier homes and happier lives.” ~ Scott Harris.
