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.
