Better built since 1935.

Building Leaders

B.D. Stevens Ltd is a third generation family-owned construction company with nearly 90 years of experience. Our company’s namesake B.D. got his start in construction in the 1930’s and incorporated the company in 1953. As a founding division of the diverse and well-respected Stevens Group of Companies, BDS has broad recognition for integrity and honesty within the greater NS business community.

Offering professional Design-Build project management services, we work with our clients to best serve their construction needs. Leaders in the tilt-up construction industry, we are also proud to be founding members of the Tilt-up Concrete Association (TCA).

We have built a network of service providers sharing the same work ethic and vision to realize a successful build for our clients. Our connection with our sister company Citadel Contractors in Apex, North Carolina also helps us determine trends and new approaches to design and construction techniques.

Our firm is known for its integrity and honesty as we work with our clients to ensure satisfaction in a new build, expansion or renovation.

Our Team is Your Team

As a design-builder, our in-house architectural and engineering divisions are able to work directly with our clients. Our team of professionals ensure that the design parameters meet the owner’s requirements, and clearly define the various components within the project for optimal pricing. Delivering projects on time and within budget is a realistic vision when working with our team.

The continual interaction between the owner, designers, cost estimators and field crews ensure that the implications and benefits of every decision is understood throughout the process.

“The B.D. Stevens team is excellent at tailoring a space for your needs while providing professional and knowledgeable guidance. We have been very pleased with the project from beginning to end.”

— Jim Mills, CEO, Office Interiors

A Track Record of Excellence

The late Laurie Burnett (L.B.) Stevens, B.D.’s son, was named an Honourary Life Member of CANS in 2003 and we continue to work to maintain the level of integrity and respect garnered by the first two generations in our projects to this day.

Winning awards over many decades has allowed us to retain our reputation for being the best choice in commercial construction services in our region.
