Bill Powers Owner/Manager:
Head of Planning and Development – Powers Design and Build, LLC is a “Boutique Building Company”. Our clients work with Bill throughout the process. We generally have 4-6 projects in production at any given time which allows him the time to guide each client through the design process including all selections, bidding and the actual production of each project to completion.
2017 marks Bill’s 38th year owning his own building business. His educational background is in business and project management. For the first 10 years Bill did all the design work, pricing and selling of all projects and Bill did a lot of the work with his crew. He found over time that he was a better designer and businessman and have since left the actual construction to the artisan-craftsmen we have who really enjoy that aspect. Bill finds great pleasure in this work and he insists that our clients do the same. In today’s world it is a great privilege to do this kind of work and for the people that are our clients to be able to afford to modify their homes is a blessing, so my goal is for everyone to enjoy the process. A promise Bill makes to clients is that if they employ our firm, we will be friends when we are done. Everyone wants a good experience and it takes constant management of expectations and delivery of good results to have a good experience. With over 1,00 projects completed, we can deliver on promises made.
On a personal note, besides the building business, Bill loves to cook and entertain. He also reads quite a bit and likes to write. In fact, at this time he is working on his second novel, Hunter’s Bridge. Bill is happily married and lives in south Tulsa with his wife, Julie, 2 dogs and a cat. They currently have 4 married children and a total of 7 grandchildren with whom they enjoy spending quite a bit of time.
