Welcome to DRAMS Real Estate Development

At DRAMS, we are dedicated to reshaping the landscape of real estate through comprehensive solutions in design, construction, and investment.

With offices in Emeryville and Santa Monica, we proudly serve both the San Francisco and Los Angeles metropolitan areas, leveraging our local insights and broad expertise.

Our team handles a diverse range of projects, from expansive commercial renovations—including hospitals and airports—to personalized residential designs. We focus on creating spaces that are functional, beautiful, sustainable, and valuable to the communities they serve.

We Design. Starting as an architecture firm, design is the core of our business. We have grown to include interior design and aim to have structural design in-house. Our integrated design techniques ensure harmony in materials and colors throughout the project. All our design work is done in-house or by contracted designers; we do not outsource.

We Build. As a licensed general contractor, we ensure that our construction work meets the highest standards, whether we are building our designs or projects from other designers.

We Invest. We strategically invest in commercial and residential projects, identifying the right opportunities to create value and foster development.

CELEVLAND PORTER

I'm delighted to award DRAMS Architects a well-deserved 5-star rating for their exceptional and prompt services. Recently, I found myself in urgent need of an emergency drawing approved by the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District to proceed with my construction project. Thankfully, I was referred to the talented architect, Al Dram. Upon explaining my predicament, Al assured me that he could assist with this critical drawing to advance the project's completion. True to his word, within just 3 days, Al provided the much-needed drawing, which I promptly submitted for approval. Thanks to Al's expertise, my project stayed on track. I am immensely grateful and highly recommend Al for any architectural needs.

Al Dram and his team did a great job providing the designs and drawings for my daughter's 3660 square foot Barre and yoga fitness studio in Brentwood. The city of Brentwood can be very meticulous (picky) in their requirements but Al worked with them closely and was on top of everything they required and any changes they demanded. He is very professional and a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend him highly.

DRAMS Inc. supported me to get my Accessory Dwelling Unit through zoning and building at the City of Oakland, which is no small feat. What I appreciated most about his service was how responsive Al was to all my communication: He replied to my emails promptly. He almost always picked up the phone, and if it went to voicemail, he called me back almost always on the same day. Al was very patient and supportive as he guided me through a process I've never been through before. Thank you Al and your amazing team.
