OUR CLIENTSLove Our Work

Great partnerships are built on trust. We earn that trust every day by delivering on our promises. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what our clients have to say.


Douglass Design & Build is very oriented to meeting and exceeding the client and owner’s expectations for quality, budget and schedule. We have found that the culture of Douglass Design & Build is very consistent, and provides a team effort to complete projects on time andon budget. Kevin’s team knows when to ask questions and when to move ahead. There is never a ‘problem’ on a project only a challenge requiring a solution. These solutions are foundthrough dialogue between the Architect/Designer, the Tradesmen, and the Client. Kevin demonstrates a thorough understanding of construction and the construction process and his work is well coordinated and well organized. His project management and attention to detail are assets throughout the project. Catherine McKenna, Principle, Catherine McKenna Architects, LLP

Douglass Design + Build was a pleasure to work with on our retail build out. The condition of the building and municipal codes created several challenges for the master plan. In each instance, Kevin and his team came up with realistic solutions to keep the project tracking on time and on budget. The transformation of the space from a former municipal garage to a modern, cutting edge retail operation was truly amazing. Our client and all involved in the project are grateful for the professionalism and quality of workmanship provided by Kevin and his team at Douglass Design + Build. Timothy Johnson, Retail Services Executive, Giant Bicycle USA
Douglass Design + Build took a blank warehouse and made our vision for a world-class office and kombucha manufacturing site a reality! Kevin and his team supported us in every way with limited change orders and great-communication. Kevin offered a lot of great ideas to enable Health-Ade to move to the next level without simply ramping up cost. We’re so thankful to DD+B and we couldn’t be happier with the process and outcome.Justin Trout, COO/Co-Founder, Health-Ade, LLC

As a structural engineer, I consider Douglass Design + Build (DB+B) a partner in always delivering client-focused high-quality results. Because the DD+B team thrives on solving problems, I strongly prefer having them as part of any challenging project. Not only can I rest assured the construction will be of very high quality, but also that I have a collaborative partner who will make my design even better. It is a joy to work with the DDB team.
