About US

Zip Design & Build, LLC was established in 2008 as the result of the owner’s passion for designing and building along with his years of experience in the construction industry.

Zlatko Ivan Pticek, the founder of Zip Design & Build, LLC, started his contracting career in Germany back in 1997 as a 20-year-old graduate from electrical technical school. After working on different projects for 2 years, an opportunity came to move to the USA. In 2000, Ivan started working as an apprentice for a Harrisburg, PA plumbing company, learning plumbing skills on different commercial and residential projects. Soon after, he was hired by a custom kitchen and bath remodeling company where he worked for 2 years learning the fine arts of carpentry and building custom spaces.

In 2002, Ivan started his own company, Zip Construction, in Harrisburg, PA, offering kitchen and bath remodeling services. His passion and talent for design, space planning and custom build spaces was always driving him to gain more education as a contractor. Learning new skills and how to use architectural computer software to create project drawings and plans including space planning and interior design helped to separate him from the competition.

In 2004, Zip Construction completed its first general contracting job involving designing, managing and building a 3200 square-foot custom home in Carlisle, PA. Soon after this successful project, Ivan and his wife were pursued an opportunity that became available in Jacksonville, Florida. After moving there in 2005, they started a new company, Done Right Zip Tile, Inc..

As a pro contracting state, contractors and companies in Florida must be very well educated and skilled in order to run a construction business. As a result, Ivan continued his education and was soon licensed as a Tile and Marble contractor. He started as an installer with a helper crew and soon Done Right Zip Tile was a business of 15-20 employees. Much of this growth was due to Ivan’s combined business and construction skills, good business practices and attention to detail. Working with top northeast Florida builders and interior designers, Ivan's company was involved in many custom projects throughout northeast Florida. Ivan’s team worked on homes ranging from $2-35 million dollars. Working along with architects and interior designers helped Ivan learn the importance of space planning, design and budgeting.

Since moving back home to Central PA, Ivan’s passion to design and build continues. Ivan is an experienced craftsman with 17 years of experience in custom building spaces. Ivan is continuing his education in interior design and will soon be certified by Interior Design Institute. Ivan is involved in every aspect of your project from start to finish to ensure the highest quality. He is here to offer you talent, knowledge and experience combined with his passion to make a difference.

That is what Ivan and Zip Design & Build, LLC is all about.

In 2007, Ivan's company had the privilege and honor to work on a very important project in the nation’s oldest city, Saint Augustine, Florida.
Ivan and his crew had the opportunity to install a beautiful mosaic that was created by two local artists.  This mosaic is a representation of the history of this amazing town. 

After successful completion of this project, our work became part of American history.  We were honored that the city of Saint Augustine trusted our expertise with the installation of such an important piece of art. In 2014, Ivan and his family visited St. Augustine and Ivan had the chance to inspect the work he did back in 2007.

As you can see in the picture below, everything still looks great. Being a contractor is one thing but being a contractor that truly cares about his clients and his work is something completely different.
