LUXUS Design Build, an award-winning full-service residential and custom home contracting firm, has appointed industry expert Travis Holden as the company’s project manager. “Holden is a perfect addition to our team and a master of his trade,” said Michael Gardner, owner and founder of LUXUS Design Build. “His extensive background in civil engineering, architecture, design, and construction are just a bonus to his unparalleled work ethic and the value he brings to our clientele.”
Since building his first home by himself at just 20 years old, Holden’s subsequent 16-year career has revolved around the architecture, construction, and engineering industry. His skill set was solely developed through hands-on learning and field experience, allowing him to perfect his craft and organically evolve.
Holden’s role with the firm includes overseeing day-to-day operations, managing contracting and bidding, managing job sites, and assisting with billing and finances. Holden joins the team from his role as a project manager and partner of a local architectural studio for 14 years.
“Joining the LUXUS Design Build team perfectly aligned with my professional and personal values, specifically because of the emphasis they place on quality over quantity,” said Holden. “The entire team is genuinely passionate about the craftsmanship of every project and always caters to the minute details, which is a rare find.”
With his new title, Holden plans to help develop the company’s construction division to ensure it is equipped to build all the company’s original designs and transition to in-house building only. Holden’s current projects include the 2023 The New American Home, a custom high-performance home as part of the National Association of Home Builders’ annual home build project.
