Renovation projects are complicated. Upgrading existing structures and systems is less straightforward than new construction, requiring an uncommon level of expertise. The team at SDS Construction has a proven track record in this aspect of commercial project management. More, we really enjoy it. Whether it’s a derelict historic property or a poorly utilized warehouse, we are passionate about the process of revitalization.


Whether tenants are moving into a new location or upgrading their current one, we draw upon our expertise to design, plan, and build the exact space clients want. This goes beyond understanding the client’s needs to fully knowing their aspirations. Next, we get creative, helping to take what they envision and finding a way to realize it.

Budget considerations are vital, and our team is unique in our ability to value engineer the desired design features. Cost is reduced while function and beauty remain uncompromised. The breadth of the construction team’s skills, such as metal fabrication and fine woodworking, coupled with established vendor relationships, allow us to offer clients a product quality that exceeds its cost.

Construction Management

With a comprehensive plan developed, execution begins at the job site. SDS Construction adheres to fixed scheduling, allowing the client to be involved in all aspects of the process and anticipate next steps. This is a collaborative process and ongoing communication is fundamental.

“Chuck combines an amazing breadth of construction knowledge with deep hands-on experience. Both his attention to detail and his project management skills were key to our ability to meet the high bar we’d set for our building’s transformation.”

CK AndersonCreative Director, Helveticka

“I went over the hopeful plan with Chuck, that we wanted to co-design a new coffee bar from top to floor with him, and that we needed his team to have this completed and ready to re-open in two days…. He and his team, and their work performance, were friendly, courteous, professional, knowledgeable, expedient, clean, and even quiet…. We have been exceptionally happy with the results, and our experience working with them, and I would again in a hot second. I’d recommend SDS to anyone.”

Project Close

Projects are remembered not by how they start but how they finish. All too frequently a construction project begins to sputter toward the end as the focus moves to future jobs. At SDS Construction, our projects don’t close until our client is satisfied. We remain committed, addressing any concerns immediately and remaining available post-occupancy.

Preservation of Resources

Sustainability is about carrying out activities without harmful impacts, and renovating existing structures is central to sustainable construction. Renovation is the primary focus of SDS Construction. More, our team has extensive experience with adaptive reuse of historic properties. They work closely with the Historic Preservation Office to meet the needs of the modern workplace while maintaining historic standards. Projects of note include The Legion Building, the Washington Cracker Co., the Iron Goat Brewery building, and Helveticka at 121 E Pacific Ave.
