The Best Drywall and Framing Subcontractor in the San Diego Area

San Diego is full of innovative, complex buildings and Unique Building Group (UBG) has had the opportunity to work on several across the area. Because we’re the best framing and drywall subcontractor in the San Diego area, we’re often the first choice for general contractors who need a large-scale project done the right way. We didn’t become San Diego’s best commercial drywall subcontractor overnight. We earned this reputation through our ongoing commitment to excellence and consistent track record for executing on projects on-time and on-budget time after time. Here are three reasons why some of the industry’s top general contractors consider UBG the best:

1. 30 Years Of Experience

Our team is made up of some of the most experienced and talented professionals in the industry. From our founders to our foreman, we have built a culture of excellence that cascades throughout our company. Our firm started in 1990, so we have over 30 years of experience in the large-scale, complex commercial construction industry. Our experience and expertise starts with our leadership: 

  • Richard Thompson – CEO: With several decades of commercial construction experience spanning dozens of large-scale projects across the UK and the US, Richard Thompson helped turn UBG into the successful business it is today. Richard has a construction management degree from North East Surrey College of Technology and has an extensive skill set which includes design, innovation, and client services.
  • Paul Thompson – COO: Paul oversees all of UBG’s internal operations and has played a huge role in building the company’s strong foundation that has allowed it to scale into one of the best in the industry. Prior to UBG, Paul spent 10 years overseeing a team of 200+ at his father’s structural waterproofing company in the UK.
  • Michelle McNamara – CAO: Recruiting great talent, investing in technology, and enhancing safety standards are a few of the many contributions Michelle McNamara has made toward making UBG the best in the business. Michelle has been with UBG for over 15 years and her leadership is a large reason behind our success.

2. Our Portfolio Of Complex Construction Projects Around San Diego

We take complex building concepts and bring them to life, and our work is on display in the San Diego area and beyond. We’ve also had the opportunity to construct buildings that make a huge difference in the lives of people all over the country. Some of our favorite projects over the last few years include:

  • Copley Medical Outpatient Surgery Center 
    We supplied framing and drywall as part of this 40,834 sqft project, 3-story building. This project is a great example of our ability to be flexible and adapt to timelines, because we did the job while the hospital was still open!
  • 9514 Towne Center Drive
    This 70K sqft life sciences building in University Towne Centre has flexible floor plates and state-of-the-art infrastructure. This complex project called for angle-shaped panels, which were difficult to install due to the structure of the building. Nevertheless, we installed the panels, framing, drywall, and EIFS.
  • Bernando Center Drive
    This beautiful building contains a surgery center and office space for BioMed Realty Trust’s corporate headquarters. We supplied all the framing, drywall, and EIFS for this project.
  • The Salvation Army Adult Rehab Center
    We installed 45,000 sqft of drywall on this important rehab center, which provides critical resources to local residents suffering from addiction. 
  • San Diego VA Clinic 
    Metal stud framing, drywall, and lath & plaster was installed with perfection at the San Diego VA Clinic, a 176K sqft facility that serves up to 800 veterans per day. 

3. Our Ability To Precisely Manage A Project From Start To Finish

You can’t consistently deliver results on-time and on-budget for large-scale complex construction projects without having the ability to manage projects with precision. From our highly accurate bidding process to our excellent project management teams (who oversee each project from start to finish), our ability to manage every aspect of a project with impeccable detail is what sets us apart in the industry.

We’re also prepared for bumps along the way. Whether it’s solving a complicated installation issue on the fly or stepping out of sequence to allow for better success, there isn’t a problem too big for us to handle. Our processes are proven and repeatable, and our consistency is why general contractors trust us to get the job done right.
