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.

Southwest Ranches Loft Completed

What do you do with “wasted” soaring ceiling space when you want more usable square footage in your home? You create a loft as Big Dog Construction Services did in this Southwest Ranches home. The new loft provided the family with a second floor office/family room. Additionally, the narrow staircase was widened and completely replaced including a new railing.  As an added bonus, the new lower kitchen ceiling now can hold a pot rack.

Check out the before and after photos.



New loft built by Big Dog Construction Services — the workpersonship is spot on. They use top quality subs. Who clean up every day. We lived in our house and cooked every morning and night while they added a ceiling to my kitchen with the floor in the loft overhead. They removed our stairs and put in new safer ones too. Also relocated the pantry and A/C. Thanks Dave, Rhonda, Joe and crew! Lori Parrish, Southwest Ranches


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.
