We had a fantastic experience with the Sustainable Design Build team. We worked closely with Mike and Derek throughout the project and they were consistently responsive and great listeners- always able to clearly explain why something was a particular way or how things could be changed to meet our needs. Critically they are a company that keeps their word. We ended up having to move half way through out project and the team was very accommodating on figuring out a clean way to wind down the process in a way that was fair for everybody. My wife and I were super impressed with their professionalism and honesty throughout the process and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is considering going through a major remodel and needs help with either the design or construction aspects of their project.

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with the SDB team on many projects, and their focus to be eco- friendly and minimize the impact construction has on the environment is true to their name. I appreciate the efforts made by all members of the team to recycle different materials and become more knowledgeable about the different sustainability practices in Denver and surrounding municipalities. A big thank you to the Sustainable Design Build team for your professionalism and reliability. You are amazing to work with, and I look forward to more projects together!

In the construction field is hard to find good companies to work with. In this case has been a great experience to work with Sustainable Design Build and be part of their team building a foundation addition. Their team is excellent, professional, responsible and friendly. We are looking forward to build more and more foundations and additions toghether in Colorado. Thank you Zack and Josh!

SDB did a great job of transforming what was on paper to something tangible. Our project was done in one of the hardest years to try and build a house which was 2020. Through all the building cost increases, delays, quarantines, etc. they were able to deliver a finished project that we truly enjoy.

We just finished the design phase of our Pop-Top with SDB and they have all of the contacts. The team at SDB brought in a qualified designer, structural engineer, asbestos and lead tester, blower door tester, Manual JDS tester, etc. We are about to embark on the build change so I'm looking forward to writing another 5 star review.

Working with SDB was a fantastic experience! We needed to remodel / transform an historic building into office space and this team was great to work with. From flooring, framing, electrical, plumbing...there wasn't a single area they weren't able to handle with top-notch workmanship. Super happy with the results and grateful for a GC you can count on, communicate easily with, and provide quality results. Thanks team!

We used Sustainable Design Build to finish our basement. We absolutely love how it turned out! Our project manager was so helpful throughout the whole process and it has exceeded our expectations in beauty, design and functionality!

We hired Sustainable Design Build to design and build our basement bathroom and refinish our basement bedroom. Jon and his team did an excellent job with the design, prepared a competitive and fair quote, and got right to work. Having been in Denver for 5 years and struggled to find any reliable contractors, SDB had a stable full of professional contractors for each part of the job (plumbing, electrical, HVAC, Paint, Tile, etc.). They ensured great work and that everything was up to code. For the miscellaneous pieces of the job, Josh and others on the SDB team were responsive and skilled to ensure the smallest details were not missed. When small issues came up, as they do with a project this size, Josh was timely and made sure things were done right. I definitely recommend SDB for anyone looking for help with their remodel and plan to use their services again in the future very soon.

Sustainable Design Build was the Design/ Build firm for a few large scale projects I worked on around Denver and I found them to be very responsive and professional. They received many accolades from their clients.

Featured Project

Here at Sustainable Design Build, we are proud to show references of our work. See our commitment to quality craftsmanship and customer service through our products.

Perry St Home Addition

SDB performed a whole home remodel along with the Perry St home addition scope of work. The results bring an amazing finished product making the final product more of a custom home build rather than a remodel.

Grant Street Project

Grant Street is an amazing example of how a home addition can incorporate custom home finishes. This Denver home is set to complete this Summer of 2022 but SDB couldn’t wait to discuss the beautiful custom home finishes and progress the project has brought.

4500 Yates Second Story Addition

This project was an opportunity to expand on a unique corner lot home. Sustainable Design Build provided services for constructing a second-story addition to the home, as well as, remodeling certain portions of the existing home.

Washington St. Remodel

Sustainable Design Build’s latest residential construction project is complete! This high-rise condo needed updates to the living room, kitchen, bathroom, and powder room. See how they all turned out!

Grape St Home Addition

Common Questions about Sustainable Design Build and our GC-led Design Build Process.

What is a GC-Led Design-Build Firm?

A GC-Led Design-Build Firm is an organization that offers both the design and construction services required for building residential or commercial projects. The Design services offered include architectural, structural, civil engineering, soil, and other required disciplines. All of those services will be managed and run by SDB as the project lead and main point of contact. SDB will also schedule, manage, and perform all construction trades needed to complete the project. The benefit of this is an all-in-one approach allows SDB to leverage their experience of construction through all phases of a project and produce efficiencies in a client’s budget, schedule, and finished product.

The difference SDB makes compared to others is our approach to a project’s budget throughout all phases. We operate with a budget-first outlook that is guided by our experience, giving us more insight into design choices and material selections that can easily overspend a budget.

This type of service is especially valuable to clients who are seeking larger construction projects such as home additions or custom home construction. Commercial construction clients like land developers can also see a benefit from this management approach. SDB acts as the main point of contact and helps navigate a project through nuances and complexities that would otherwise delay a project.

Is Design-Build more expensive than a General Contractor?

No, the design-build process is laid out to produce efficiencies where traditional construction methods lack, this in turn can help clients save more money on their project! The key is having SDB bridge the gap between the design phase and the construction phase of the project. Even more, SDB is a “Contractor-led” design-build firm unlike other competitors who are “architect-led”. This means that the leaders and project managers of SDB are experienced in actual construction which lends a pragmatic foresight on certain design requirements.

What are the BENEFITS of the Design-Build Process?

The design-build process is a unifying method of construction that is led under a single point of contact, Much like a general contractor. However, the design-build company offers much more by being a part of the design process of a project. This lends conscious decisions in the design of the project which will help align client goals later on down the road.


Single point of contact. Communicates with all trades and disciplines required for construction; architectural, structural, civil, soils, City Officials, Carpenters, etc.

Client-Conscious Design Choices

Can help clients identify cost savings in certain areas of their project where others would offer the more expensive or lengthy options.

Faster Project Completion

Experience in actual construction helps speed the process up through all phases of the project. Can make choices about time-saving designs, and can save money on material options that perform better and more cost-effectively.

What is The SDB Design-Build Process?

The design-build process is a streamlined construction method where architects and designers collaborate directly with contractors who perform construction. While beneficial, traditional companies that factor design build aspects from an architectural and design perspective operate at a disadvantage to the client. They might be unaware that those choices, while good on paper, will take too long to build or may even cost more. Sustainable Design Build is a GC-led Design-Build Firm, which means the people who are performing the construction of the project are present during the design phase. Our seasoned experience and knowledge in construction will guarantee the most efficient and cost-effective design and build.
