What Clients Are Saying

Dave Rasmussen and his team have collaborated with our firm, Gast Architects, in constructing projects we’ve designed in the San Francisco Bay Area for over three decades on nearly twenty projects – Pretty amazing! That really says it all. They’ve built everything from bathroom remodels to complete renovations of city properties to new homes on country estates for us. We keep working together for many reasons: Dave and his crew work hard to achieve the highest quality results, they treat their clients and us with integrity and honesty, they believe in team work, and understand the design excellence and quality what we strive to achieve. The fact that clients return to Dave for repeat projects is a testament to his team's process and results. - David Gast, AIA, Principal

David S. Gast, Gast Architects


Dave Rasmussen and all of the people that work with him are among the most highly skilled, resourceful, honest and considerate people that we have ever had work on our home. Deadlines and budgets were respected and for the most part were adhered to, unless we changed the scope of work. On many aspects of the construction we were presented with various options so that the completed project (a kitchen, pantry, bar, family room and finished lower level) was very tailored to our needs. The whole crew was respectful to our neighbors who never complained during the year-long project. Dave worked seamlessly with architect David Gast, whom I would also highly recommend, so that the entire project proceeded smoothly without time delays or problems of communication.

Working with Rasmussen Construction is every architect or designers dream. They are very professional and and use highly skilled subcontractors and artisans. Their communication with the the team is excellent and they will always inquire if they are unsure of the design intent or have a question about the drawings. I believe our clients were very happy them and with the work they did. The project was a renovation and large addition to a 1904 single style house.

John Smith, City Front Plumbing


“DVR was the general contractor for major a renovation in my 4,000 sq. ft. apartment here in San Francisco. The finished product is absolutely perfect. Most of my guests exclaim that mine is the most beautiful apartment they have seen. I could not have chosen a better contractor, and if I were ever to do another such project, I wouldn’t hesitate to use DVR.”

Marsha Rosenbaum, Pacific Heights Client


“Working with you and the DV Rasmussen team made all the difference in my project. I was appreciative of your input and very important suggestions in the planning process. Once we were underway, you were always thinking several steps ahead in anticipation of what was to come so that your team was prepared and efficient. Further, the quality of the workmanship and the cooperative spirit of whomever came to work at my home made the project enjoyable while ever mindful of costs and budget. I look forward to working with you again in the future”

Shaari Ergas, Pacific Heights Client

Dave and his highly skilled, organized, and professional team make the process of building easy and fun. His bids are very thorough and clear, and set the tone for a smooth construction process from beginning to end. The skill level of himself and his team is nothing less than masterful. They are highly accustomed to fine building details and finishes and produce them with ease, on time and on budget. It was a joy working with him and his team. I highly recommend them!

Leigh Heydt, Heydt Designs


Working with Rasmussen Construction was a pleasure. They are thorough, well organized, careful craftsman. Besides doing excellent work they are very a likable group with a high level of honesty and integrity. We are a custom oriented, design driven architectural office with over 30 years experience doing residential projects. I would put Rasmussen Construction among the top contractors we have worked with on past projects. I would have no problem referring them to any of our future clients.

Ed Kaplan , Kaplan Architects


Working with this David Rasmussen and his highly talented crew, in the field and in the office, was the smoothest construction project we have ever gone through. His company came very highly recommended by a colleague in San Francisco and I would recommend this company to anyone fortunate enough to choose them. The honesty, integrity and the follow through was impeccable. Construction is very difficult on any family; however, our experience with D.V.Rasmussen was one that we would like to pass on to others. The final product, our remodeled house, surpassed everyone's expectations, including those of the design team involved.
