We are based in Ithaca, New York and design in and around the central New York region. Our work represents a select range of building types, including hospitality and residential buildings. Our staff is united by a design-build business model: design that is imagined and built by the same team of highly skilled designers and master builders. We look to create spaces where people are able to truly embrace the culture and mission that our clients seek to evoke in their space.

We offer challenging, fast-paced, and interesting design projects where you will be asked to think creatively. We work collaboratively with our team in the field to answer questions during construction and ensure our client’s needs are being met on a daily basis. Each employee plays a critical role on the project team and our interactive environment encourages employees to be creative, communicate openly and think differently.




You are the owner of your responsibilities to yourself and your project team. We encourage our team members to find their balance between work and life. We believe in giving our employees personal time off to recharge and work with employees to find a balance that fits their lifestyle and supports our team.

We offer complete health and dental coverage for our full-time employees. Employees also have the option of participating in our Simple IRA retirement plan, in which we offer up to a 3% match in contributions to your account.



We support opportunities to build your career, achieve personal goals, and sharpen your skills. Our goal is to help you define a long and successful career path at Trade Design Build and our team is open to supporting our employees through licensing and certifications that will enhance their design and building skills.
