Design/Build

Serving the Mat-Su Valley, Eagle River & Anchorage.

Building is a big deal.

At Falcon Alaska, we understand how stressful it can be and are dedicated to organizing your project in a way that gives you confidence and peace of mind. By honing our unique design/build process, we leave no detail to chance.

We design your project from the ground up through careful analysis and execution of your needs and goals. Our dedicated experts listen to your thoughts and ideas, then guide and educate you toward a structure that is authentic, personal, and functional.

Residential Forever Homes & Multi-Family ProjectsHigh angle of a new, large house with woods behind it

Since 1995, Falcon (formerly Wirtanen Custom Homes) has been building the highest-quality custom homes in the region. Recognized by design awards and in numerous publications, we take great pride in our craftsmanship and client satisfaction.

All styles and scales are welcome for our residential design/build services. We ensure each custom home is built with the highest of material standards and is low maintenance, energy-efficient, and architecturally inspired.

In addition to building custom homes in Palmer, Wasilla, Eagle River, Anchorage, or elsewhere in the Mat-Su Valley, we’re also available to design and construct multi-family residential homes or entire communities. Even in large-scale projects, we don’t restrict our developer clients to a single floor plan. We leverage our architectural design staff to deliver designs that are value-engineered and inspire tenant enthusiasm.

We Build Energy-Efficient Structures Using the Whole-Structure System

Over the past 25 years, we’ve developed a minimum building standard for all projects to ensure our structures are at the highest level of quality, require minimal maintenance, and have exceptional longevity.

This “Whole Structure System” encompasses all structural, mechanical, and electrical components inside the building’s thermal envelope, starting with the foundation and framing.

Our goal is to provide clients with a value-engineered outcome that stands the test of time without over-investing. Such attention to detail requires continued education, expertise, and a willingness to grow. We believe this continued growth and quality standard is critical for delivering the best projects in the state and for maximizing energy efficiency in Alaska’s northern climate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process for obtaining permits and meeting building codes in Anchorage?

Each project’s specific requirements and procedures can vary, but your design/build team will obtain all applicable permits from local authorities.

They’ll carry out the typical permit and building code process in Anchorage:

  1. Research and plan which requirements apply to your project
  2. Create detailed plans that comply with applicable codes
  3. Apply for permits
  4. Wait for plan review by the building department
  5. Receive approved building permits
  6. Start construction and inspections
  7. Receive final approval and occupancy

The Municipality of Anchorage’s Planning Department has various zoning restrictions and land-use regulations that could impact your project’s design and construction.

Some residential, commercial, industrial, and mixed-use zones have specific rules like building height, lot coverage, and setbacks.

Some districts, including historic overlay zones, require design or architectural reviews to ensure historic preservation. And land-use restrictions could limit what type of property you can build.
