We listen to your needs and requirements and together we determine the most appropriate method of construction for your project.

Timbro Design Build Contractors is the Niagara Region’s exclusive design/build contractor for Butler Building Systems and is recognized by Butler as a Career Builder.

With the Design Build method, Timbro has designed and constructed medical clinics, office structures, retail plazas, warehouses, manufacturing plants, gymnasiums, curling clubs, green-house distribution centers, car dealerships, green/sustainable buildings, food processing and refrigeration plants using the most appropriate method of construction.

Timbro acts as a government liaison on behalf of customers, filing for building permits and creating site plan agreements, drainage and stormwater management plans, minor variances, re-zonings, etc. Our company also assesses proposed building sites for clients, determining development costs and performing geotechnical investigations, environmental audits and sewage and disposal studies.

Design / Build Contractors offer the following unsurpassed advantages:

Total Responsibility
As an alternative to General Contracting, Timbro’s total responsibility provides the client with one contact from start to finish.

The Timms family has been designing and building since the early 1900's. We involve all members of the construction team, from Engineers/Architects to Subcontractors, to design and construct an economical building that solves your needs and provides good value.

Timbro offers our total commitment to each project. A single point of responsibility and accountability provides responsive service in an efficient and timely manner.

Guaranteed Costs
Project costs and a firm budget are established early and guaranteed BEFORE extensive design and detailing are performed, eliminating the need for expensive redesign, lost time and frustration.
Once the scope of the project is established, the owner doesn’t pay for design errors or omissions. Contract price adjustments are only made when the owner makes a change to the scope of work or for unknown conditions.
With fewer parties involved, the administrative burden is reduced, communication is improved, time is saved and financial savings realized.

Phased Design & Construction
Contracts are set-up in phases, allowing the owner the opportunity to terminate the process should the project be faced with obstacles or should the owner not be satisfied with our performance.

Early Occupancy of Facility
Design / Build Construction allows the owner an opportunity to “fast track” the design and construction process, to obtain earlier deliveries and quicker occupancy.

Quality, Value & Integrity
Early involvement in the design stage allows for maximum impact on planning and the best opportunity to control costs. All materials and subtrades are selected based on quality, performance, integrity and reliability, NOT JUST PRICE. Competitive bidding on materials and subtrades ensures the owner receives maximum value for their construction dollar.

Specialty Systems Supplier
Our direct relationships with proven manufacturers of building systems ensures the owner receives unsurpassed efficiency and quality.

From initial design to completion, the team approach at Timbro achieves an effective balance between quality and service. This assures on-time and on-budget completion of your project with optimum return on your investment.
