building brands since 2008.

For over a decade, we’ve collaborated with some of the biggest brands and newest innovators to create spaces that draw people in. BUILD IT has completed over 600 projects since our inception in 2008, but our mission has always stayed the same: to build iconic spaces that inspire success from the inside out — smarter, honestly, and to a higher standard than anyone else.

what we do.

We create environments that authentically express your brand’s attitude and story. The most important point of contact you’ll ever have with your customer comes the moment they step inside your doors – and we know what it takes to set a world class standard in hospitality, retail, and commercial spaces.

Our BUILD IT team works on a broad range of construction projects, including new builds, retrofits and repurposed spaces. We source locations, collaborate with engineers, designers and architects; we assemble trustworthy construction teams and provide on-site management services. From start to finish, we bring your brand to life.

a passion for the craft.

We take great pride in having one of the country’s most talented collection of tradespeople and construction experts. Other companies bring in hired guns — we hire them full-time instead. And over the last decade, we’ve established a culture of accountability and dedication, where everyone is encouraged to think like entrepreneurs.

the first thing we build is trust.

Our ability to communicate open and honestly sets us apart. Our real-time project tracker streamlines the process, allowing clients to monitor their project in real time from any location. With tablets on every job site, our project managers are constantly providing progress reports, uploading photos and keeping clients informed of major milestones.

technology in our toolbox.

Emerging technologies are transforming the way we approach builds. Whether it’s integrating VR into site drawings, using drones to complete inspections, or creating interactive environments to improve customer experience — our BUILD IT team is always exploring newer, smarter ways of doing things.

great projects require constructive thinkers.

We’re in the construction business. But more than anything else, we’re just really good problem solvers. Our team of in-house specialists is always finding new ways to tackle challenges, emphasizing collaboration between stakeholders, architects, designers, engineers and trades.
