Timely results, a respect for all budgetary goals and a sense of community and respect on site and in office.
TBI Contracting is one of Pittsburgh's few self-performing general contractors. We complete successful construction projects using efficient problem solving, teamwork and skill. Our craftsman are experienced and well-prepared for any project, no matter the size or application. And we take a particular pride in offering exemplary craftsmanship in the masonry, concrete, carpentry and finishing trades.
At TBI, we believe in effective, respectful communication - with clients, employees and the community at large. We make it a point to work in tandem with architects and owners during every project. Our staff and principals can be contacted directly at any time without administrative middlemen, confusing hierarchical structures or frustrating red tape. This allows for quicker responses, forthright answers and cost transparency - in other words, better service.
At the base of any good working relationship is trust, and TBI goes to great lengths to provide all necessary parties with itemization and allocation of costs. We have kept our operation lean and efficient so that bloated overhead costs will not be transferred to clients. Our goals are to provide expert craftsmanship completed in a timely manner and to build strong working relationships. Each project provides an opportunity to meet these goals, when all parties involved have performed to their highest levels of expertise and can shake hands over a job well done.
