Christopher Burton - Founder/President

Based on the principles of integrity, innovation, quality & value, my passion is building homes that reveal elegant design, beautiful form and function. Living in a house that meets your distinct lifestyle needs is paramount.

With recent market swell for modern luxury homes, Florida provides a perfect backdrop for warm, clean-lined contemporary architecture and design. Brevard’s scenic natural amenities fully complement the integration of indoor and outdoor living environments where the homeowner can choose to either relax and reflect, or entertain friends and family. Enjoying fond memories and memorable experiences are only enhanced by engaging, scalable spaces.

The tipping point in starting Élan Builders was my relationship with renowned modern architect Phil Kean, AIA. After numerous requests by customers to build modern homes that feature open interior spaces, I approached Phil and cultivated a dynamic working relationship. Phil Kean is nationally recognized as a leading contemporary architect and recipient of numerous design awards. Combining Phil’s award-winning architecture and design with my skillful artisans, sub-contractors and design team, Élan Builders provides clients a seamless ‘turnkey’ solution.

Whether behind the gates of Adelaide or Modern Duran in Viera, or your private lot on the Space Coast, it would be my distinct privilege to build your new modern luxury home. The confidence in my team to design, build and deliver your vision is only surpassed by my passion for what I do.

I look forward to meeting you and your family, and the potential of teaming together.
