Bullseye Construction Services
214 Judy Place NE, Albuquerque, NM 87111
Bullseye Construction Services is a locally owned and operated general contracting firm serving the New Mexico area. On top of its residential design-build services, the firm also provides clients with full interior design services. Its team uses a three-step process to deliver quality work. Every project begins with an initial consultation—an in-house designer visits clients in their homes to understand both the client and the space the team will work on. This meeting allows Bullseye Construction Services to identify problems and opportunities. Once projects enter the design stage, the firm will discuss styles, layouts, and client requirements in-depth. The firm then takes measurements, comes up with floor plans, and selects materials. Finally, the construction phase begins after logistics are finalized.
The A Splash of Copper project is part of Bullseye Construction Services’ remodeling portfolio. Requested to update a traditional Southwestern home with modern details, the firm carefully selected materials, colors, and furnishings to create an organic design. The firm incorporated subtle copper elements into different aspects of the home, including the kitchen and living room. Bullseye Construction Services balanced the copper touches with wooden furniture like tables and chairs. Some of the copper details include light fixtures, cabinet handles, and a kitchen faucet.
