Our Team

Jared Raksits - Owner

Jared is a second-generation northern Utah builder, who founded Alexander Design Build in 1999 as part of his passionate pursuit to offer clients the best in mountain living. As both designer and builder, Jared is committed to working closely with you in a hands-on approach through the entire evolution of your custom home, from its initial design to final construction. Jared is poised to give every aspect of your dream residence the level of attention you expect.

Justin Andrew - Lead Drafter

Justin was born in Oklahoma, but moved around the western United States for much of his childhood. Once they finally settled down, he spent his summers working with family as a framer at industrial construction sites. After graduating high school, he attended Idaho State University for archaeology and owned a framing business to pay for college. Afterward, he became a wild land firefighter, then a police officer, but continued construction work. 

He joined the Alexander Design Build team in early 2000 when he oversaw the building of a small northern Utah subdivision. Over time he transitioned from his role as a project manager into drafting. 

Jamie Andrew - Project Manager

Jamie has always loved a challenge and being outdoors. He spent much of his youth exploring southern Utah. As he got older he challenged himself by working in management positions in various industries. He now works for Alexander Design Build as a project manager and loves to see a finished product and know he had a part in it. 

Jessica Fletcher - Drafter

Jessica grew up in Park City, enthralled by the outdoors and dinosaurs. Because of this, she was convinced that she would grow up to become a paleontologist. In high school, however, she found her first love- physics. From there she decided to pursue knowledge of the stars and attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University where she received a bachelor’s in Space Physics and met her husband. 

Design work appealed to her inner artist and physicist brain, and she now works for Alexander Design Build assisting clients in making house plans into dream homes.

Ashley Crawford - Drafter and Assistant Project Manager

Ashley grew up in the Park City area where she spent much of her time hiking, biking and skiing in the surrounding mountains. A love of STEM led her to receive a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Utah. Despite a fondness of robotics that was supported by her education, she jumped at the opportunity to begin working with family as a part of the Alexander Design Build Team.  Ashley is now an integral part of the team participating in drafting, project management, website design, social media outreach and has become the resident photographer for the ADB group. 

Misty Castagno - Office Manager

Misty grew up in the small town of Stockton, Utah. She has had a love for horses, livestock, adventures and the outdoors since she was young. She attended college at Utah Valley University and more recently at Utah State University. After getting married, Misty and her husband took their interests and hobbies to the next level, by turning it into a family business. Misty is an energetic professional who does not mind wearing a few hats and embraces challenges. She loves using her skills and abilities to help others achieve their goals. She has a natural positive attitude and attention to detail that will help make your transactions smooth and painless during your next build.

Client Reviews


Project Date: November 2015

I consider myself fortunate to have had Jared Rakisits of Alexander Design Build as the contractor on three projects in Park City, Utah - one renovation and two new build residences. I was the Owner on each of these projects as well as the Architect. As an Architect with over thirty years of experience I am most particular concerning the quality of the people who I select to represent me on these type projects and I have never once had any reason to question Jared's competence, knowledge of the marketplace, relationship with his subcontractors or his ability to communicate effectively with all the regulatory players who are involved in the building process here in Summit County. Not only do I HIGHLY recommend Jared and his company, I feel so strongly about his contribution to the team that I will not build in Park City or Summit County if he is not the contractor.

Project Date: January 2007

I have had two homes designed by Alexander Design. Jared has a wealth of experience designing and building homes in and around Park City. He cut his teeth early on in framing and home building in Park City so he understands better than most designer the nuances of construction which impact cost, etc.. Jared and his team have a great sense of style and are always on top of the latest trends in mountain home design. If your looking for value and want to save considerably over what you would pay for a top-name Park City designer, I would strongly recommend Alexander Design Build, for both design and construction.
