The best people equal the best product.

Our blueprint is better. Years of experience in the industry has led us to rethink the way we view the construction business. We simply found that we could improve upon the way things had been done. Our experience and background in architecture and construction have given us a comprehensive understanding of traditional repair methodologies, materials and techniques. More importantly, this experience has enabled us to develop alternative methods and techniques that can assist our clients with decision making, and allow us to design projects that meet our clients’ budgets.

“Nautilus finished ahead of or on schedule, at or below budget, and is professional in every aspect of their business; including interfacing all interested members within and surrounding the community.” – Gary M. Roth HOA Board President, La Jolla Alta Master Council

Repairing structures. Building relationships. Exceeding expectations. Construction is a commodity. Having the technical skill to perform our work at a superior level is a given. However, we work in and around occupied buildings, in homes and offices. We work with people in all we do – owners, tenants, property managers, adjusters, subcontractors and neighbors. People matter. As a result, Nautilus is a service-oriented, relationship-driven business. In every aspect of our work, we focus on taking the strain out of difficult projects by making it easier on others. We differentiate ourselves from our competition by being better communicators, better listeners and better problem-solvers, and by providing a level of service that exceeds our clients’ expectations.

We specialize in Homeowners Associations. The unique dynamic of a homeowners association requires specialized attention. Over time, we have developed not only the special skills, but the special communication tools that allow us to coordinate multiple and often divergent parties, including owners, tenants, Boards of Directors, property managers and attorneys. We have the skill to work successfully with demanding owners and divergent interests. We understand Boards. In fact, our philosophy of partnering with homeowners associations has allowed us to become the recommended market leader in homeowners association reconstruction and maintenance. This is our signature.
