Bring in the Big Block party

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY TO BUILD A HEALTHY HOUSING SUPPLY

In a dual role as construction manager and general contractor (CM/GC), we specialize in guiding community-minded organizations through residential and mixed-use development to design for high-impact project outcomes people and the planet can actually count on – and get your project from dream to dirt to done at high speed.

The road to realizing your building project isn’t just unpaved – it’s crossing unknown territory.

We’re developers who have been down similar paths before – and we have it on good authority that where you want to go, we won't need roads anyway. We can swoop in at any stage of your project and give you the guidance needed to make it work, so you can make your way out of the weeds and get back to serving your community.

Ready, set… get all systems go to build at full throttle.
LET’S IGNITE THE GREEN LIGHT

When you have a construction project ahead of you, getting to the finish line can be a big challenge. As your construction project co-pilots, Big Block has your back. Just point to where you want to go, and we’ll guide your leadership team on the journey to braver spaces, bolder outcomes, and bigger impact.

What it’s like to work with Big Block

1.

Building knowledge through curiosity and storytelling

We are lifelong learners intent on building collective knowledge alongside our clients. Through listening and open dialogue, we learn about our clients’ stories and histories to better understand how the community will be impacted by our developments.

2.

Capacity building, recalibrated for tenacity and resilience

Our goal is to help you build your capacity to tend to people, unite efforts, and make a lasting impact. We share our tools, skills and connections to upgrade your capacity, and integrate everyone involved in equity-oriented ways so all project stakeholders are aligned.

3.

Nothing built in invisible ink

We believe in transparency, which means open, honest communication whether that be in a presentation to a board of directors, talking through agreements and legal contracts, civil engagement sessions with local community members or measuring project outcomes.

4.

Cost-effective and hardwearing housing action with hustle

As developers who have been entrusted to budget and build more than $330 million in construction value, we recommend approaches that secure funds swiftly, allocate hard-earned resources responsibly, and encourage high performance throughout the building’s lifetime.

5.

High-caliber and low-carbon construction for the 21st century

Our award-winning construction technology meets Net Zero standard and is on average 10-20% more cost-effective in half the time, with half the CO2 emissions during the construction phase, and with less disruption to the surrounding community than traditional design-build methods.

6.

Serious work, without taking ourselves too seriously

A little well-placed levity lifts spirits and lightens workdays. We align our approach to the specific scenario, and don’t hesitate to take time for ceremony, celebration, and cause for laughter to keep the community close knit and in good spirits.
