Class B California Contractor's License #898602

I am an architect and have worked with Brad on a few projects and I hope to work with him on many more. Brad is the kind of contractor who I think really loves what he does for a living. I get the sense that he takes a real pride in his work and also considers his relationship with his clients and other professionals as very important to him. He is thoughtful, thorough, organized, highly skilled and seems eager to always be improving his business.

Patrick Perez, Architect

I worked with Brad, the principle of Doran Construction and Design, on the complete gut and remodel of my home in the Mission District of San Francisco. We went from a relatively personality-free, worn down Victorian to a modern home. I found Brad to be great to work with. He collaborated easily with the architect and structural engineer, was flexible around meeting times given my busy work schedule, and was fluent with trade-offs that are part of the design and build process. I’m more than pleased with the outcome of the work and regularly give Brad references.

Brett Lider, Homeowner

Brad was G.C. for a residential remodel my office designed in San Francisco. His bid was competitive and organized and won him the job. The owner was very happy with Brad’s communication skills, his coordination of the trades, attention to detail and of course, the final outcome of the work.
