Compass Design|Build is a full-service home building and remodeling company that serves the West County and St. Louis metropolitan area. Owned by Peter Uetrecht, an experienced second-generation home builder of over 26 years, Compass specializes in true Design|Build projects.
Pete is a Chaminade grad and attended the University of Missouri, Columbia, receiving a B.S. in Environmental Design. After graduating from Mizzou, Pete worked in the home building industry for 10 years before launching Compass Design|Build.
Compass handles everything from small remodeling projects, kitchen renovations and lower-level finish to large-scale additions, custom homes and boutique commercial build-out. Regardless of the project, Compass clients receive the same personal service, expert craftsmanship and attention to detail. “Our goal is to create an experience like none other for our clients,” said Pete. “Because we are a small, family-owned company – a husband and wife team – clients work directly with the owners.” Pete’s wife, Jennifer, is an award-winning interior designer. Jennifer works with each client from the onset, assisting with space planning and physical layout of the structure or space, as well as kitchen and bath design. She walks clients through the entire project from the onset to the final selections. The Compass approach is a commitment to delivering the best design and quality, conscience of the client’s budget, while providing exceptional service from concept to completion.
Compass is proud to have been selected by the Gary Sinise Foundation to build a new custom smart home for Ballwin Police Officer Michael Flamion and his wife, Sarah. “It truly is an honor to be working with such a great organization and has been a privilege to assist the Flamions throughout this process,” said Pete.
