About Us

A Culture of Service

The best project experience ultimately comes down to having the best project team. We bring decades of experience in Denver’s construction and development industry, from ground-up construction to tenant improvement in industries ranging from office to restaurant, retail, hospitality, multifamily and more.

We know what it’s like to get lost in the shuffle at bigger firms. When you work with Taurus Builders, you’ll get dedicated, personalized service from an experienced team known for transparent communication, attention to detail and exceptional quality.

Our team produces a level of craftsmanship you’ll be proud of, and we stand by our work. If something needs fixing, we’ll be there. When you want to celebrate a job well done, we’ll bring the beers. And when you’re ready to tackle the next project, you’ll know who to call.

How We Work

Understand your goals

We start our relationship by understanding your goals for the project. We take the time to listen to your needs and coordinate with your project stakeholders. Then, we build a plan that will help us exceed your expectations.

Optimize your project process

Our expertise allows us to partner with you in a variety of ways – whether you need construction management or a full design-build approach. We strive to improve the construction process at every turn, bringing new ideas that add value and create efficiencies for you. We take the initiative to look at your project from all angles, identifying potential issues before they become problems, and finding ways to help you optimize cost and schedule.

Build the right team for the job

In addition to direct leadership involvement on every project, we’ve established strong relationships with skilled trades. We’ll build an experienced team dedicated to helping you maximize value while delivering quality you can count on, every time.

Communicate and deliver

Our leadership team is on-site, keeping you informed at every step of your project process and ensuring the safest, most efficient job site possible. Our industry-leading project management system keeps our entire project team aligned and informed, and helps us ensure a streamlined construction process for you.

Follow up

When we say we build relationships with our clients, that means we’re there for you no matter when you call us. Even a year down the road, we check back in to make sure you still love the results.
