About us

actually, we're all about YOU.

Premier Construction is your trusted builder serving Palm Desert and throughout the Coachella Valley.

We’re Proud to Be The Desert’s Trusted General Contractor. Robert Deville is a third-generation general contractor. Growing up in Louisiana, his clients love the fact that he’s very easy to talk to, very laid back, and — after 25 years — very good at what he does. His grandfather built custom homes in Louisiana and Robert grew up at his knee, learning those old-school skills. After high school, Robert started devoting himself to construction projects, then worked his way up in a friend’s company to become Lead Project Manager. In 2002, after 14 years in Seattle, Robert had the opportunity to move to the desert. At first, he thought he’d live part-time in Cathedral City for the summers, but soon realized that he just loved the hot climate and friendly lifestyle.

The Customer Treated Like Royalty.

Robert started with odd jobs for residential and commercial projects while Crystal ran the office. Because of their growing success, they soon began managing larger projects. From his grandfather and other colleagues, Robert knew that success is all about building customer relationships.


Robert adds, “Most of my clients from Seattle or Vancouver now have second and third homes in Southern California. They might make a few trips here to see the progress, but we streamline the process. Most of them don’t even need to come down here because I’ve earned their unqualified trust.”

He says, “We make sure that our customers are treated like royalty. We go the extra mile to make sure they’re happy. That’s why we get a lot of repeat business and customer referrals from our clients.”

Owner | Founder | Office Manager

Crystal Deville is Co-Owner and the Office Manager for Premier Construction. She has worked in the construction and remodeling industry for 11 years now. Before starting Premier Construction, Crystal worked as an advertising/marketing manager for a leading real estate company where she learned the art of seeing properties from all angles – the client’s perspective, the resale perspective, and the design perspective.


Crystal and Robert saw a huge need in the Coachella Valley to service clients who may not be local to the desert, but need a passionate and talented team of professionals to turn their vision into a reality. Premier Construction prides themselves on their team’s combined years of experience and expertise paired with the unparalleled support and guidance they provide for their clients.
