Desert Star Construction Celebrates 37th Birthday

 |  Filed in The DSC Standard®


Desert Star Construction will celebrate its 37th birthday on February 14th. (That’s right – Valentine’s Day!) And every year we are humbled by the wonderful opportunities that inspire us to consistently deliver value, integrity, and excellence. Whether we’re building a custom luxury home, sharing our expertise with partners and peers, or being a good listener and a caring friend, we strive to enrich the lives of those around us. Our aim is to become better stewards for our clients, better partners for our teams, and better leaders for our community.
Here are just a few of the incredible experiences from 2014 we are blessed to share with you today.

Thank you for contributing to these wonderfully special moments of 2014 and for helping us celebrate our 37th Anniversary at Desert Star Construction! We look forward to creating even more amazing experiences together with you throughout the coming year.

With gratitude,
Jerry Meek and Team DSC®


Team DSC® is nearing completion on Desert Star Construction’s second Net Zero custom luxury residence. Once we finalize our last inspection and submit all the necessary paperwork to determine the official measures of sustainability integrated into the home, the residence will prove to be the largest and most efficient property located in Paradise Valley. With this project, we’re thrilled to be at the forefront of an exciting trend that is emerging among new homeowners who are looking to combine advanced “green” technology with exquisite design and quality workmanship. The long–term benefits of owning a sustainably built home gives you the greatest overall value, such as improved health, significant financial incentives, and overall lower utility costs. Contact us if you’d like to learn more about the benefits of building a sustainable custom luxury residence.


Among the many DSC projects started and completed in 2014, Team DSC® accelerated not just one, but two major custom luxury residential projects from ground break to final inspection within a remarkably short 12 month period. In order to finish each project on time, on budget, and with the same level of first–class quality and service that defines every DSC project, we are constantly optimizing and refining our building process to handle the complexity of detail woven into each of our custom projects as well as the thousands of decisions that must be coordinated and completed on a daily basis. As with every project, we strive to make the home building experience a truly worry–free process from start to finish for all parties involved – the client, the architect and design teams, our trades partners, and vendors.

This last year, several clients honored us by choosing to come back to Desert Star Construction to build a second and even a third home. It’s always exciting to discover how our clients’ needs evolve over time as their children grow, their careers blossom, and their aspirations deepen. Each home is a reflection of those experiences, which is why building a custom residence becomes such a personal and dedicated process. By coming back to Team DSC®, our clients show us the trust we’ve earned as their builders, and allow us the wonderful opportunity to truly be their Builder for Life®.
