Why Choose Design | Build?

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 contact and is used to minimize risks for the project owner in order to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project.

End to End Control

As a true design builder we start at the paper stage working with our clients to provide them with a building that is truly suited and designed for their needs. We aspire to be the best in energy efficiency, flow, and design. We provide custom tailored architectural designs, for any projects of any size.  At SBD, we are committed to working directly with our clients, keeping them informed and educated regarding how certain options will impact the project.

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.

General Contracting

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.
