DESIGN-BUILD streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork. United from the outset of every project, an integrated team produces the best results.
Benning Design Construction is Sacramento’s premier design-build company. BDC was created by Bruce and Eric Benning. The Bennings are a father and son partnership that originated from two of Sacramento's established and successful interior design and construction firms.
Bruce Benning began Benning Design Associates in 1984 as a full service interior design firm in Midtown Sacramento. The BDA firm has designed many of Sacramento’s iconic restaurants, signature residences, and corporate offices, winning numerous local and national awards. With a strong background in lighting design along with an emphasis of transforming interior space architecturally, the Benning team is acknowledged for their ingenuity and creativity.
In 1989 Eric Benning got his first job in the construction industry doing commercial and industrial construction. After working his way up the construction ladder, from a laborer to superintendent, and eventually project management, Eric decided to secure his general contractors license and start his own construction business. The business started out doing commercial work but soon the main focus evolved into high end residential remodel work. Eric began working in collaboration with his father Bruce Benning on Bruce’s interior design projects. With excellent design and superior craftsmanship, an exciting product was being produced. This is when the design-build concept was born for the Bennings. After years of working together on projects, the singular entity of BDC became official in 2016 and a new building and headquarters was purchased at 960 Fulton Avenue.
