Project Management 

As one of Western Canada’s largest General Contractors with specialized capabilities in residential mid & high rise construction, we offer our clients reliability and diligence from planning to occupancy. DBD is capable of building projects that range in size from $1 million to $250 million multi-phase developments.

Our approach:

  • Using in depth knowledge of the building type, DBD assists developers to control the design to effectively meet their cost pro forma; developers have complete control over the design of the project and DBD’s role is that of a cost advisor

  • By providing up to date cost budgets, developers can have a greater level of certainty in construction costs before applying for a Development Permit

  • We will work with the design team to assist them on decisions affecting constructability in their designs

  • After several pricing iterations and toward the end of the working drawing phase, the Developer will be offered a fixed lump sum contract for construction

  • Scheduling

  • Quality control

  • Safety management

  • Subcontractor management

  • Status reporting
