About Us

Compass Design | Build is a full service home building and remodeling company that serves the St. Louis metropolitan area.  Owned by Peter Uetrecht, an experienced, 2nd generation home builder of 26 years, and his wife, Jennifer, an award-winning interior designer, the company specializes in true “design / build” projects.

Pete grew up in the home building industry, working as a summer laborer during his middle and high school years at Chaminade.  After graduating from the University of Missouri, Columbia with a degree in Housing and Environmental Design, he spent 10 years working in the building industry before venturing off on his own in 1999.

Jennifer specializes in a home’s total interior, and exterior, design.  She works with Compass’ clients from the onset, helping with space planning and the physical layout of the structure or space, as well as kitchen and bath design, lighting, plumbing, and all of the selections necessary.

While Pete focuses on the daily management and technical aspects of construction, Jennifer guides their clients gracefully through the design and selection phases.  Jennifer developed the Compass Homeowner’s Handbook which walks their clients through the construction and selection process.

“Our goal is to create an experience like none other for our homeowners.  Because we are a small, family-owned company – a husband and wife team – clients are working directly with the owners.”

Compass Design Build handles everything from small renovations and additions, to the design and construction of luxury homes.  Regardless of the project, all of our clients receive the same personal service, expert craftsmanship, and attention to detail.

“We demand the same quality and craftsmanship from our subcontractors whether we are building a $20,000 bath remodel or a $2 million dollar custom home.  We strive to deliver excellent design, provide a quality product, and are committed to superior customer service.
