Over 15 Years of Experience

Let our expertise guide you home. With over 25 years of experience building homes throughout Chicago and its beautiful North Shore, we are proud to go above and beyond to deliver excellence.


If an architectural design team has already been selected, Highgate can utilize our pre-construction process to accomplish your goals.


The pre-construction process mirrors our design-build process with the exception of the design team selection.  Highgate Builders is typically involved as soon as preliminary design has begun and helps the client and design team manage the project goals, as well as budget and permit oversight.


What if I have my own design?

We’ll work with your architecture and design team through the process and provide budgetary oversight!

Do I need the land first?

We have a number of lots available – but are more than happy to help guide you through the process. Our vast network of brokers throughout Chicago allows us to point our clients towards amazing land opportunities!

What's the first step?

The first step is to contact us and schedule a time to sit down and discuss your goals! Every project is different, we’re here to help answer any and all questions you may have!

What architects do you work with?

We work with a variety of architects from all over the country depending on the desired style!

Do you have build sites available?

Yes! Contact us today to learn about the sites we currently have available ready to be built on.


Involving Highgate Builders in the process at design conception allows our clients the benefits of a design-build process, while allowing the freedom to choose from a select group of qualified designers.  Once Highgate reviews your project goals and architectural style, we organize interviews with several partner architects and designers to find the best match for your home.


While we have a number of homes – either completed or under construction – currently for sale, if you are a looking for a home in a specific location, we have the tools and resources to deliver results!   From zoning and permits through the home design process and beyond, we’re here to guide you through the process.
