Design | Build is a project delivery system used in the construction industry. It is a method to deliver a project in which the design and construction services are contracted by a single entity known as the design | building or design | build contractor. Design | build relies on a single point of responsibility contract and is used to minimize risks for the project owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project.
True Design Builders
We literally take your project from paper right through to moving in.
We design to not only suit architectural needs but also energy, cost, and space efficiency.
We give you more building for your budget.
Design | Build allows you to start with just a concept or a vision, SBD’s in-house design team will take it from there. We have the capability of extending far beyond general contracting, with our in-house design team we work closely with the designers to work out issues on paper before it gets to the site. Because the Design | Build process combines several phases of the project, it allows for greater control over the three key project parameters: cost, quality, and schedule.
Clients are able to move beyond low-bid price alone and set a maximum price going into the project, which allows us as the general contractor to offer the highest quality facility with the largest achievable number of desirable features. Working closely with bridging design and construction we aim to provide the very most out of the available dollar producing happy, returning clients in the end.

Traditional Lump Sum Tendering Construction Services
This is when a project owner or architect, acting as the representative of an owner, approaches Superior Buildings & Design with a complete set of construction documents. SBD works to compile and submit a firm price for the work shown in the documents. Once the price has been submitted and accepted, a schedule is agreed upon, and a traditional construction contract is drafted. This contract is entered into between the owner and SBD. It states the final price, completion date and contract conditions. Once the contract is signed, construction begins.
Our hands-on approach has provided clients with enhanced quality control and project delivery. Members of our construction team include project managers, skilled labourers, apprentices, licensed journeyman, safety coordinators and construction managers. Eliminating risk means knowing where to go to find the right people and materials, and how best to organize and manage work through the use of contemporary construction technologies.
