Founded in 1977 , S + B James Construction

serves the entire West Coast from offices in California and Oregon . With Heman Chand , Silas Nigam and Josh Walker among the executive / ownership group for the Sacramento office , this design and build contractor is a certified minority-owned company backed by a team with two-and-ahalf decades of experience in California .
Client-focused and service oriented , S + B James offers a wide range of both design and construction services . The firm ’ s expertise in preconstruction , design and building construction gives it a unique perspective of both the big picture and the details that most impact the client ’ s needs from budget to schedule .
With in-house designers , engineers and project managers , S + B James handles entire projects from the first sketch to the day the doors open . The firm has many projects in
the health care and education sectors but also works on industrial , commercial , office , retail , governmental , religious , multifamily housing and mixed-use projects .
“ When we are part of the team during preconstruction , you get personal executive-level involvement from day one ,” says Chand . “ We ’ re extremely responsive and return calls , oftentimes within the hour . In these uncertain times , our team delivers certainty over and over again !”
A testament to client satisfaction comes from Brett A . Mitchell , director of facilities expansion at UC Davis Health . “ I have found the S + B James team to be very open and transparent in their approach ,” Mitchell says . “ They ’ re truly owner-centric in their approach with a focused eye toward longterm relationships , with business practices that support it . This commitment transcends the owner agreement and is required from their own trade partners as well .”
More than 90 percent of the firm ’ s clients are repeat clients , and the goal is to continue the quality of work and level of service that keeps them coming back . “ We want to be trusted advisers for our clients , architects , engineers and anyone else we work with ,” Chand says .
“ S + B James Construction has demonstrated thoroughness , professionalism and teamwork , which has allowed me to sleep at night while being responsible to deliver a very complex project with a compressed schedule for a very important client .”
