Our Story

Our company was established in 1936 after the Great Depression to restore confidence in construction lending. The founding partners helped in the economic recovery by providing clear process for lenders and builders in the construction industry. 

 

Knowledge to Navigate the Industry

When building gets too complex – when building codes, lending practices, and land-use regulation become tough to understand – it benefits those with the knowledge to navigate the industry. They profit from this increased complexity and charge higher fees.

Efficient Solutions

At BuildZig, our goal is to make the process simple and easy to understand. We find the most simple and efficient solution to achieve your goals. We understand the building process and we know how things can be done differently, in ways that are both less complex and less expensive.

We empower those who can dream it, to build it.
