To provide the best design and construction delivery method for our clients, demonstrating great communication, transparent pricing, outstanding quality and timely completions.
— Edward Stroop


Traditional construction projects can be costly as owners typically issue an RFP (request for proposal) to hire an architect to design the project, and then issue a separate RFP for a contractor to build the project. The two-step procurement process requires considerable management oversight and time, and can lead to miscommunication about design elements, costs, and responsibilities.

SDCI’s proposed approach combined the traditionally separate design and construction phases into a single in-house design-build construction management contract. This parallel process is more collaborative, and creates “buildable” and affordable projects that better match budgets and expectations.
