We strive to earn, maintain and nurture your trust. Trust in our process, trust in our trade partners and trust in our team. We Commit to applying our core values to every aspect of Intension and believe that through this application stunning projects and most importantly, lifelong relationships can be created.

Education through Design

At Intension we come at the construction process from the designer's standpoint. Every aspect of our builds are overlaid with a background, and understanding, of its design purpose.

Finished Eye

In the construction process, an understanding of the final details should have an immense impact on the rough work. Intension focuses intently on the finished product at all stages of construction to ensure the final details are never compromised.

Earned Experience

Mistakes happen, how it is handled and whether or not you learn from them is what's important. We have spent the last 15 years learning the ins and outs of Los Angeles' high-end residential market. We have worked hard to get where we are today and we bring that experience and work ethic to every project and client we work with.


The typical process for a project would be the Design - Bid - Build method. This is where an Architect designs a house, General Contractors bid on that design and then the project is awarded and built. At Intension, we work closely with architects and clients and strive to engage in projects very early - allowing the Design and Bid phases to happen concurrently. Allowing a more economical, streamlined and efficient project.
