Looked upon as the “go-to” expert for all things rebuilding and beyond, Scott’s been interviewed by a wide variety of talk and news shows. From building “green” or conventional to “fire-proofing” your home, to spiritual/metaphysical to scientific to luxurious lifestyle and empowerment.
His path to where he is now with a multimillion-dollar company and aligning himself with premier AIA architect William Hefner (Studio William Hefner), is also quite an inspirational success story…overcoming obstacles, holding to his vision. 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.
Unlike other building contractors, Scott has a fresh, inspirational, unique perspective and knowledge about life, building (residential/commercial), and how it all really affects our lives…what we can do to be proactive in making changes to improve the quality of our lives…mentally, emotionally, spiritually. He brings you to a new level of awareness, which is not only an eye-opener but entertaining as well. He applies his expertise and insight to every jaw-dropping, creme de la creme, multi-million dollar property including LEED Platinum certified home of noted actor-environmentalist, Ed Begley Jr. Scott is a favorite among a long list of billionaires and celebrities (e.g., Paul Allen, Taio Cruz, actors Kevin James and 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.
An articulate, unique writer and photographer, Scott is a continuing contributor for select publications including GLADYS and Builder & Developer national magazines. He’s been interviewed and covered just about any topic from DIYs to trends in building homes, remodeling, empowerment, sustainability, celebrities, home improvement, lifestyle, celebrity homes, architecture, metaphysics, interior design, health, repurposing, recycling, deconstruction, new technology, “green” ecology, building, design, cooking (yes cooking)…and building as an art form.
GLADYS Magazine listed Scott as one of their top 100 favorite influencers in their fall 10th Anniversary issue along with “A” listers such as Oprah, Gordon Ramsey, Martha Stewart, and Madonna!
Scott also has a strong presence on other media platforms. Malibu’s Choice Award for Green Construction 2017 Recipient, his 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, Spectrum News, Hal Eisner’s “In-Depth,” “What The Hal?” CBS, TV, KTLA, HGTV, Adam Carolla Show, Evox Television, and national magazines such as Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Luxe, House Beautiful, Interior Design, Builder & Developer, Los Angeles Times, Metropolitan Home, Oprah, Going Organic, Traditional Home, Cliche, Milieu, Focus, Gladys and many more.
At the age of 5, Scott spent his childhood inventing contraptions and experimenting on how to perfect a home. He was consumed with a fascination with the way things work and dreamed of becoming a builder. When Scott was 15 years old, after following his calling and winning numerous awards for his work, his teacher 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 homes 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 on 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 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 has 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.
