Who is CBI?

Our identity as a company lies in our name. The word "Caritas" is a Latin word meaning "Christian charity", and this is how we endeavor to treat each of our clients -with the consideration and respect they deserve. You can be assured that our deep rooted Christian principle of charity for our neighbors will be the foundation for all of our future interactions through the process of building your home.
