BDCSI Receives our First STEP Award

BDCSI is proud to be recognized for our commitment to safety.  In fact, we recently took our entire Airport Team off the job for two days to send them to OSHA 10 training.  Last night we received a 2016 STEP (Safety Training Evaluation Process) Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). This award recognizes BDCSI’s Silver Level of achievement and ongoing efforts in the development of a quality safety program.


BDCSI to Partner in FATVillage Project

Big Dog Construction Services is excited to partner with Kaufman Lynn Construction and The Related Group to build an apartment complex in downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Flagler Village.  Called the Gallery at FATVillage, the 12-story project was designed to have 150 affordable apartments, 41 market-rate apartments and 4,000 square feet of retail space.

Read more about the project in the Dec. 2-8, 2016 edition of the South Florida Business Journal.


Big Dog Construction Services Launches New Web Site!

After many sleepless nights, our NEW AND IMPROVED website is now online!

It showcases our services and portfolio of projects (stay tuned…we will fill in additional projects and descriptions in the days and weeks to come), as well as the design partners with whom we have worked.

The site features not only “Big Dog” projects, but also highlights the $1 billion in construction projects that Dave completed prior to starting our own company. This will provide a more complete picture of his impressive experience (in the humble opinion of his proud wife)! You will find bios for Dave and I, accolades, and even a link to read the fun book that we wrote together, Management Lessons from the Dog Park.

Dave now has the blog that he has wanted forever. We’ll be posting news, info about current projects, contractor tips, construction humor, and pages from our book. Be sure to check back often for updates and like us on social media at the bottom of the home page so you will see our updates.

Happy “National Dog Day”

At Big Dog Construction Services, we thematically celebrate dogs every day. However, August 26th is the official National Dog Day. This day is meant to celebrate all breeds, pure and mixed and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year. National Dog Day honors family dogs and dogs that work selflessly to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage.

In honor of these wonderful companions, please consider adopting a rescue dog today. And be sure to give your current dogs a little extra love and attention!
