Unique Building Group is the San Diego Area’s Best Drywall Subcontractor; Here’s Why

Over the last few decades, Unique Building Group (UBG) has proven itself to be the best commercial drywall subcontractor in San Diego. When general contractors are seeking out partners around southern California to perform large-scale drywall installs, UBG is always at the top of the list, and for good reason.

We didn’t become the best at what we do overnight. It has taken us years of consistently delivering high-quality work to earn the reputation we have today. You don’t become one of the most recognized drywall subcontractors in the industry without going above and beyond for your clients each and every time. The key to our success has been developing consistent, repeatable, and reliable approaches to the following three areas of business:

1. Our Commitment To Safety

UBG prioritizes safety above all else. Nothing is more important than the safety of our workers, our partners, and everyone who steps foot on the job site. When safety issues arise, they not only put our teams in jeopardy, but they can also put the overall project at risk.

To help mitigate these risks, UBG has implemented world-class safety training, standards, and procedures. Training isn’t a one-and-done exercise; it takes place all year long. From daily safety meetings to annual trainings, safety practices are a simple habit at UBG. Our internal training programs far exceed OSHA standards. Some of our many safety requirements include:

  • All UBG foremen are OSHA 30 trained (at minimum)
  • All project leads must be OSHA 10 trained
  • We manage an ongoing safety training program through M2 safety

We also have a robust system for identifying and reporting incidents and hazards on the job site, and we’re constantly on the lookout for new technology that improves construction safety. We know we cannot be successful as a large-scale drywall subcontractor without the best safety training and procedures in place. When working with UBG, you can rest assured that our team does everything possible to create a safe environment.

2. Our Budgeting And Billing Practices

Budgeting and estimating are some of the most complicated components of commercial construction, but getting them right is crucial for success. Overbilling or underbilling can wreak havoc on a project budget sheet. As a result, we have a highly skilled estimating team that leverages multiple software solutions and draws from industry experience to ensure our estimates and budgeting are as accurate as possible. 

When it comes time for billing, we use a percentage of completion (POC) billing method, which is widely considered to be the most accurate and reliable strategy for accruing costs throughout a construction project. We bill our fees based on the percentage of completion in relation to the total project cost. This helps keep everyone on the same page and prevents billing errors and reversals.

3. Our Ability To Manage A Project Timeline

As framing specialists and drywall subcontractors, our work often sets the pace for the rest of the project. As a result, we understand delays can be disruptive to the entire project. Therefore, we do everything in our power to ensure we’re ready to go from the minute we step on the job site, and that we maintain a consistent pace throughout the duration. 

We use a platform called PlanGrid for project and timeline management. This tool helps us keep track of our work and keeps us working as efficiently as possible. The combination of PlanGrid with our excellent time management skills is how we manage to deliver our projects on time, every time. Our track record for doing this speaks for itself.

What To Expect When Working With UBG

As the best drywall subcontractor in the San Diego area, you can expect UBG to serve as a collaborative partner who does everything possible to ensure the project is a success. Whether it’s stepping out of sequence to accommodate a project timeline or drawing upon our vast experience to come up with creative solutions to problems, we will not only ensure our work is delivered on-time and on-budget, but that we’re doing everything possible to make the entire project a success.

Also, because we specialize in large-scale projects, there is never a job too large or too complicated for our teams. Our typical projects often require more than 100K sqft. of drywall. Our ability to manage massive projects combined with our commitment to safety, budgeting and billing practices, and ability to meet project deadlines, is what makes UBG the best drywall subcontractor in the San Diego area.
