PPRESCOTT VALLEY - A plumber here has diversified by opening a design/build business under the same roof.

Jeremy Rushton, owner of Yavapai Plumbing and Heating LLC, said he opened Yavapai Design Build LLC to provide more services to homeowners. The Arizona Registrar of Contractors issued the license to him Sept. 12, according to its website.

"A homeowner can come to us, and we can take them through the design process," Rushton said. "We can develop their blueprints. "Basically, take them through the permit process and through construction."

Rushton continued, "We are able to budget the home for them and design the home around the budget."

Rushton said he bought the plumbing business in 2007 from his father, Darwin, who started it in 1991. Yavapai Plumbing and Heating, located at 5860 N. Fulton Drive, has about 50 employees.

"We do all kinds (of plumbing)," Rushton said. "Our focus is commercial, and residential repair and replacement."

He said his uncle, Warren, a former Dewey-Humboldt town councilman, brings at least 30 years of experience in construction as well as a background as a mechanical engineer to Yavapai Design Build.

Contractors holding licenses in unrelated specialties are not unusual, according to Tyler Palmer, public information officer for the Registrar of Contractors.

"A contractor who is qualified is always welcome to hold more than one license," he said. "We regulate and review the qualifications. We look at the qualifications of each applicant."

Tyler said licenses require four years of experience in the trade "for which you are getting a license" and passing an exam.

Rushton said he meets the trade experience by bringing aboard his uncle, who will serve as project manager at Yavapai Design Build.
