David Hirzel

David Hirzel began his career in the building trades in 1972, installing  kitchens.  Over the next decade he added the skills of carpentry, concrete forming, plumbing,  and electrical work.  This experience laid  the groundwork for his understanding of the systems which combine  to make a building, and how they interact with each other.   On acquiring his California General Contractor’s License in 1983, he  expanded his scope to include larger residential additions, adding design capability in 1986.  Working extensively with existing structures,  he gained an in-depth understanding of the many causes of building  system failures, and how the correct details, incorporated to every  design, can best ensure success.

David Hirzel Building Design is proud to be an early supporter and participant in Built It Green's sophisticated Green Point Building Design programs. 

As a certified Green Point Rater, David Hirzel can create energy-efficient residential designs incorporating BuidItGreen's latest concepts, and is available to Architects and Designers as a consultant to ensure that their projects can meet the Green Points now being required for new projects from San Jose to San Rafael.
