709 North 2nd Street - Adaptive reuse and new construction completed in 2021.




Everything changes when your general contractor has an interest in the long-term financial success of your real-estate project. This is why we always offer to put 10% of our fee into the deal as it ensures our interests are aligned. This shift in approach impacts every decision we make. From the care we take in creating an estimate to decisions made to stay on budget to ensure that every finishing touch enhances short and long-term property value.

We pride ourselves on operating a construction company that is relationship-driven, fostering a team-based atmosphere and placing our highest priorities on exceeding our client’s expectations. We strive to do this by paying close attention to preconstruction (in the areas of design constructability, budget and schedule) and promoting sustainable construction practices. While the concepts of finishing projects on time and at or under budget are inherent in what we do, we also work hard at interacting with the design team, owner’s representative(s) and subcontractors/suppliers, so that the entire team is committed to the owner’s goals for the project.
