About DBS Group

Who We Are

DBS Group was founded in 2015 by a group of hand-picked, veteran design and construction professionals who are passionate about what they do and doing it together. Experts in design-build project delivery, DBS Group manages projects from conception to completion, and collaborates with a wide range of designers to provide construction-only services too.

What We Do

DBS Group provides services across the construction contractor continuum, specializing in the design-build approach. Design-build is increasingly becoming the preferred method for the construction of new facilities, as well as expansions and renovations to existing facilities, for multiple reasons:

  • Upfront collaboration between the owner and design-builder results in optimization of budget and quality goals during design and preconstruction, as well as fewer change orders during construction that can affect your bottom line and your project timeline.
  • With design-build, there is a single point of responsibility for all issues related to design and construction, placing responsibility for coordinating all project elements squarely in the hands of the design-build team and allowing the owner to focus on their business priorities.
  • Because the design, vendor bidding and construction phases can be overlapped, the process is expedited, saving valuable time and reducing the overall project schedule.
