The design-build process is the hallmark of S.B. Ballard Construction Company.

We take pride in our ability to oversee a design-build, which means we provide the owner a single point of contact for construction and design. Single-source accountability lets us streamline the construction process, stay on schedule and reduce cost.

With design-build, the designers, finance people, engineers, builders and owners all work together. And because the construction and design stages happen simultaneously, we can deliver the finished product faster and more efficiently than a traditional linear method of construction.

Over the years, we have executed dozens of design-build projects from simple commercial buildings to more complex facilities like schools, hotels and medical facilities.

Two examples of our design-build work are Union High School in Wise County, Virginia and S.B. Ballard Stadium at Old Dominion University.

No matter the size and scope, we bring the same dedication to excellence. That’s why we are the leaders in design-build in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.
