WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Heman Chand has earned my respect through his professionalism and leadership skills in teaching, coaching, and mentoring our college construction management students and graduates over the past 15 years we’ve worked together.
Heman is a proven leader who is capable of inspiring and leading his team in the collaborative delivery of complex healthcare projects. As an owner, I found him to be transparent, straight forward and always ready with a solution.
Throughout both the design and construction phases, the S+B James team has been very client-centered, highly collaborative, and budget-conscious. They are responsive to our needs, resourceful, and solution-oriented. We couldn’t have picked a better partner for this project.
Silas Nigam and Heman Chand handle themselves with the utmost professionalism and have the entire team’s interest in mind throughout our projects.
From start to finish, the crew at S+B James made sure that our needs were being heard and met. They really took the time to develop a plan to optimize functionality and design, while simultaneously keeping budget constraints and time management in focus. If something didn’t work with the necessary constraints, the crew found innovative solutions to address the problems and were very responsive to our needs.
Mercy Flights would recommend working with the team at S+B James. They value collaboration, craftsmanship, communication, and creativity. They are always professional and embody integrity with an energetic attitude during the whole process. You can tell that they love what they do, and they do it well!
Heman was instrumental in guiding the team to successfully address the project challenges. He maintained a schedule where the client required several intermittent design reviews while construction remained active. It was the processes and protocols such as pull plans and action plans, that he introduced and implemented from the inception of design that created a structure of rigor and accountability in the team from day one, and continued through the life of the project.”
The S+B James staff exhibits teamwork and a “can do” attitude. They completed our construction projects on time and within the budget. Silas and his team are very professional, knowledgeable, and take a collaborative approach to getting the job done.

Silas is a true partner in every interaction. He leads projects successfully and cares about the people who deliver it. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Silas and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again – anytime, anywhere).
What pushed [S+B James] over the top was their willingness to work with us on a budget and help us figure out alternatives… Scott, Josh, and everyone on the crew was incredible to work with, went out of their way to make things work for us, and were very understanding when we needed to work through the hiccups. It was like they became a part of our company.
I have found the S+B James team to be very open and transparent in their approach. Truly owner centric in their approach with a focused eye toward long term relationships, with business practices that support it. This commitment transcends the owner agreement and is required from their own trade partners as well.
S+B James does what they say there are going to do and they get things done in a timely manner. What they say can be counted on. They care about giving you a quality product. They never say “we can’t.” They listen well; they give quality feedback which really helps a guy like me make the right decisions. With any project comes unforeseen issues / headaches, etc. When problems arise S+B takes care of them. If you want something built then call S+B James.
Silas is a tenacious leader who inspires, mentors and supports his team to consistently deliver quality projects on time and within budget.
S+B James Construction understands the unique pressures associated with Healthcare construction. The team, including our Project Manager, engineer, and sub-contractors developed a plan to ensure that the equipment that was being installed would meet all current regulatory compliance, as well as have the ability to be adapted to future changes. The Project Manager listened to our concerns about the demolition, and construction process and ensured that his team made appropriate accommodations to ensure that our safety and infection control team was satisfied with the construction plan. Of the many healthcare construction projects that I have been involved with this is the first to be completed on-time, and under budget, while maintaining happy customers… I would highly recommend S+B James for any project that requires significant attention to detail, flexibility, and expertise in a highly regulated environment.
We recommend S+B James without any reservations. They have the technical expertise, the work ethic and the sensitivity to customer needs to do the best job possible. We would feel confident using them again on any construction project.
We can’t say thank you enough for the great work. You are doing the heavy lifting on this project and helping us complete our vision.
I have found Silas Nigam and Heman Chand to possess a knowledge of the construction industry that benefits their trade partners and clients. Construction is based on many things but trust and integrity allow construction to gain a speed. Silas and Heman have built these relationships with their trade partners and clients over the years and have gained that trust that allows construction activities to move with greater speed and certainty.
S+B James Construction has exceeded our expectations. They were always ready to listen: Whether we had questions, concerns, or suggestions for changes to the project. They took the time to understand each individual business need, overall project, and create specifications to meet them. They took our need for energy efficiency seriously and designed and constructed 2Hawk Winery with that in the forefront of the project specifications. Our building was designed with roof-mounted solar panels and was constructed to utilize the natural slope of the land for passive temperature control. It’s apparent that S+B James is passionate about incorporating the customers’ needs, wants and desires while constructing a solid building.
The Mountain Meadows Owners’ Association, a 55+ community in Ashland, could not be more delighted with the Clubhouse expansion designed and constructed by S+B James. The S+B James team was professional and competent, working effectively with the Mountain Meadows Board of Directors and architect-in-residence. The work was completed on schedule and within budget. We are proud of our new Clubhouse expansion and give credit to S+B James Construction for the many contributions they made to a successful project.
My projects would not have been successful without Heman’s involvement, guidance, training and his skills as a project executive. Heman is passionate, highly focused and result oriented construction professional. He led several of my projects through complex preconstruction services with integrity, reliability of durable decisions, and confidence in his work products.
Silas came up with solutions to resolve all of the project challenges in an extremely efficient, timely, and most economical manner. The project was completed on time, within budget and created an extremely successful project for all parties involved. This experience with Silas resulted in an excellent professional relationship and a friendship in which we would trust his leadership on future projects.

They truly were a partner through the whole process from listening to our needs and wants and helping us examine the building for additional needs. There were a number of surprises along the way but the team from S+B James were right there with us, in working out the solution.
Thank you… for not only creating a beautiful, dignified and functional space for our permanent home, but ensuring that we were able to move into it when we needed to on such a short timeline. [S+B James has] gone so far above and beyond to ensure that the people we serve have a place to go and continue to receive the vital services that are provided by Compass House.
From start to finish, the crew at S+B James really worked efficiently to optimize functionality and design while simultaneously keeping budget constraints and time management in focus. If something didn’t work within the necessary constraints, the crew found other solutions to make things happen and keep the project on schedule. We would most definitely recommend S+B James to anyone who wanted their construction project completed within budget and adhering to quality craftsmanship, great communication, time management and attention to details.
