BC Build

BC Build (formerly New Heights Development) has been creating timeless real estate developments in the DC Metro area since 2005.  We assemble an award-winning team of architects, designers, & tradespersons to make exceptional spaces.  Each project comes from a passion to provide custom craftmanship.  No detail is overlooked.


Principal, Barrett Evans, is a native Washingtonian who cares deeply about the look, feel, and quality of DC neighborhoods. With nearly 20 years of construction/development experience and a background in law & valuation, Barrett has a unique skill set in the development community.



Much of his development work is carefully designed to fit within the detailed framework of Historic housing stock



Historic approvals and historic craftmanship can add significant time and costs to a project.  But the finished product is always worth it, as timeless construction will age well into the next century. 



Barrett manages the business operation and has financial oversight for all BC Build interests. He is responsible for deal sourcing, execution, creating debt and equity capital structures, and investor reporting and bank relationships.

Barrett has a B.A. from Tufts University and a J.D. from Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law. Barrett acquired much of his knowledge of value from a 5-year appointment served with the DC Board of Real Property Assessments and Appeals.


I have lived in a Barrett Evans house since 2017 and I can honestly say it is my favorite house I’ve owned. The house has a small

footprint, 4700 sq ft or so but every single inch of the house has been meticulously thought out. I have four children and yet, each child had his/her own room and own bathroom. The modern accents starting w a beautiful white/grey marble fireplace that carries to the same marble in the kitchen is slick. Every bathroom has top of the line fixtures and sleek tiling.  All my light fixtures are unique, cool yet functional. My favorite part of my house is the stunning two story drop chandelier that hangs from the third floor down to the second floor in the stairwell. Makes me smile every day.
When I needed Barrett’ help with something in the house, even 3 or 4 years after purchase he was always responsive and helpful. We have had not a single large issue. When every house in my neighborhood was flooding during historic levels of rain, mine stayed perfect. I’d buy another home from Barrett because he stands by his work and does whatever I have asked. Rare to have your builder’s cell phone. Thats who he is!
