Industry SpecialtiesMixed-Use & Multifamily

At DDB, we bring the expertise, the resources and the experience to get your multifamily or mixed-use project completed on time and within budget.

There is an art to phasing multifamily and mixed-use projects for maximum efficiency. With DDB, you get a team who understands how to create a seamless experience from start to finish. Over the last two decades, our team members have successfully delivered large-scale mixed-use and multifamily complexes all over Southern California. We know the ins and outs of working with cities and municipalities and the unique code requirements that come with a given use.

And all of that expertise is at your fingertips at a fraction of the cost of a large general contractor.

Unlike many firms our size, we employ an expert team of quality craftsmen in-house, so we’re not beholden to the increasingly competitive sub-contractor market. Our in-house craftsmen are capable of performing a number of the tasks typically farmed out to a sub-contractor on a multifamily or mixed-use project. Having these resources in-house allows us to more accurately predict the time and cost it will take to complete your job.
