Our History


Our philosophy and principles that still guide us today from our inception in 2008; to reduce build times and costs, while striving to increase quality and improve profitability for our clients.

We treat each project and client as a partnership, acting with our clients’ interests at our core.

What We Do

  • BUILD IT By Design is a full-service general construction company that provides a one-stop turnkey solution for our clients.

    "There are
    no problems;
    only solutions."

  • As a construction company, BUILD IT By Design maintains the highest quality and best value work possible. We oversee all aspects of the construction process. Why? It is because the same people who work on your projects are guaranteeing the quality and consistency of their work.

    BUILD IT By Design can provide our clients the same excellent results, time and time again. Whether it’s repurposing existing space, retrofits, new construction, maintenance or service, BUILD IT By Design will take care of it all.


  • As a construction group, we employ everyone outside of licensed trades. This means framing, drywall, taping, millwork, tiling, and finishing are all done in-house.

    Your construction department will be made up of a team of highly skilled in house, seasoned professionals containing interior designers, architects, engineers, project managers, project coordinators, site supervisors, construction crews, and a full millwork shop. For millwork; we employ designers, AutoCAD technicians, and in-house millwork installers.



  • Action


    Due to our vertically integrated business model, we are able to have and maintain full control of projects large or small, at all times.

    We are known for being able to mobilize teams quickly and efficiently, with minimal notice. What this means for you is having a team that is on standby 24/7 to overcome any challenges you may encounter.
