All About Claremont, California

Lotus Construction Group is located in the city of Claremont, California.

Lotus Construction Group is based in the Southern California city of Claremont, which was founded in 1887. Our office is situated approximately 30 miles east of LA, in a residential suburb. Claremont has approximately 35,000 residents and 140 acres of beautifully-developed parks and picturesque, tree-lined streets. If you are moving to the Claremont area, we welcome the opportunity to help you with your home building or remodeling needs.

Claremont Features

Although the city is part of LA County, Claremont is set apart from the hustle and bustle of downtown Los Angeles, and is known for the academically acclaimed Claremont Colleges. These are a consortium of five undergraduate and two graduate higher education institutions located near the center of town. The community values culture, education and architectural heritage, which is unusual for an area that has such a welcoming, small-town feel. Claremont also has condominiums, townhouses, and apartment living, to meet a variety of tastes, needs, and lifestyles. Along with residential development, commercial and industrial centers make up the town center, which is known as the “Village.”

History of Claremont

Claremont missions

Serrano Indians were the first known residents of the area. This is evidenced by the discovery of a Serrano village on a mesa, northeast of Foothill and Indian Hill Boulevards. In 1771, Mission San Gabriel was founded. Claremont was part of the vast swath of land that made up the community. After the missions were secularized by the Mexican government in 1834, most of the land within the present Claremont city limits became part of the Rancho San Jose. The arrival of the Santa Fe railroad in 1887 launched the beginning of the City of Claremont with its incorporation some 20 years later. The local citrus industry’s expansion was helped when the Claremont growers established one of the earliest co-ops for marketing and shipping their goods. The industry thrived until the end of WWII when residential development caused the growers to sell the orchards.

Today, Claremont boasts stately, beautiful single-family homes, many of which have historical significance: Sumner Hall of Pomona College, the old railroad station, Claremont Colleges’ Bridges Auditorium, Pilgrim Place – which contains both Porter and Decker Halls.

Welcome and Hello...

Whether this is your first visit to our website, or you have been visiting for a long time, we would like to say “hello” and tell you a little bit about ourselves and how we do things here at Lotus Construction Group.    

Something or someone has brought you to our site - a recommendation from a friend, our sign in the neighborhood, or an internet search.  So, we’d like to let you know a little bit about what makes Lotus so different, and we think, better than the way the home remodeling industry typically works.

On our website you've taken a look at Our Approach, our Talent and Portfolio, Raving Fans and Design Build.  Now you want to know what it’s like to work with us.

Claremont's Best Design-Build Contractor

From the first time we meet with you, all the way through to the end of your project, and well beyond, we think of your house in the same way we think of our own homes.  Your home is more than a collection of doors, windows and walls; it contains the spaces where you dream, where you entertain family and friends, and where you feel most safe and secure.  When you invite us into your home, we consider it a privilege and a welcome responsibility, and we have maintained cherished friendships with our clients long after the completion of their projects.

Our process is designed from the onset to involve you, the homeowner, and we consider your input to be one of our most valuable tools.  We begin with an initial conversation about what your remodeling needs and goals are.  From there, we put together a proposal that describes everything we are going to do to get you to the design you want, and an accurate estimate for that design.  Then, the fun begins!  The Design Build Analysis allows us the opportunity to take the information and ideas you have given us that are important to you (i.e., design, materials, budget and schedule) and prepare a set of drawings and plans of the designs that fulfill your dreams.  Once you are happy with the design, we create a thorough and accurate cost estimate.  Our estimates are lengthy, as they provide you with detailed line items and the cost for each line item, as well as the cost for the materials and hours of labor to complete your project.  There is very little ambiguity in our estimation process.  We then spend the necessary time going through all line items with you to make sure you are as informed as possible and that you are satisfied all your questions have been addressed.  At the conclusion of the Design Build Analysis, we provide you with a valuable document that gives you an accurate and detailed cost estimate for your project.

Stay in Touch

In short, the difference at Lotus is that we take a well thought out and complete approach to your remodel or addition needs and goals, thereby providing you with a positive experience and seamless project.  So, come back and visit our website and our blog to find out more about who we are and how we do things differently – the Lotus Way.
