CG&S Design-Build was founded in 1957 by Clarence and Stella Guerrero as a remodeling business based in Austin. They taught the business and craft of remodeling to their children, who ultimately took the reins of the company in the 1990s. Architectural services inspired by the nascent design-build movement were added at this time. Today, CG&S retains a full-edged architecture staff, estimating team and construction workforce. CG&S provides full residential design-build services to the Austin metro area. Dolores Davis is the second-youngest child of the Guerreros’ eight children. She started working with CG&S as an office manager, initiated marketing activities and eventually oversaw all of CG&S’ production. Now she is the general manager of the entire operation, with an eye toward CG&S’ future. Iris Davis-Quick, Dolores Davis’ daughter, joined the firm as a receptionist in 2011. She quickly expanded her scope to include marketing, and now manages the department. She represents the third generation in the family business.
