A Bit About Us

Creating truly unique spaces reflecting our exceptional attention to detail 
Why Choose Design-Build?

From the early design stages to the constructed end product, Sullivan Building & Design Group is an active partner in the process. As a design-build firm, all of our services are in-house – from our design team and designers, to our full service woodworking facility, and highly trained craftsmen working in the field. Some of the many benefits of choosing a design-build firm include open, faster communication, fully customizable projects, and a seamless project timeline. Maintaining a strong relationship between our designers, craftsmen, and clients is what sets us apart and allows each project to flow effectively and efficiently.

Since we save time in areas that are usually spent coordinating and communicating between numerous parties, we are able to spend more time focusing on refining our projects. This allows us to continue to achieve the highest standard in design through our outstanding attention to detail.
