Design-Build

We speak both design and construction—we can see the big picture and the details.

Anyone can put up four walls and a roof. We’re here to build your future. We make sure we understand your objectives, then we assemble a team of experts whose design will meet your needs for function, site plan, price and timeline. When it’s time to break ground, we work with your project manager and our construction team to get the job done smoothly and efficiently.

We choose the best partners, consultants, trades and subcontractors to realize your vision.

We’re comfortable being in the project driver seat from concept to post-construction. We can help you determine project feasibility and design, then prepare for construction, liaise with municipalities, issue contracts, manage personnel, troubleshoot, and ensure work is completed on time, on budget and to our high standards of quality and safety. We choose our team carefully to match our small-firm mindset and value-oriented philosophy.

General Contracting

Our word is our bond. That’s why we get invited to bid, even on jobs that go to tender.

If you’ve got the specs, Schilthuis has the know-how. We carefully select the trades we work with and materials we use to ensure that the end result will be one we’re all proud of. Then we work hard to get the job done right. Our price won’t be the lowest. But it will be the best value. And that’s the reason we get many of our general contracting work through word of mouth.
