About Us

We Are School Builders

image25

Everyone in business today must have a nitch or is labeled by others as to what their business is. To say it simply, "We are School Builders." There are two aspects or types of school buildings: the new structures and additions and renovations. We excel in both areas. Our philosophy is if the owner is successful from our efforts then we will ride the tide of success. We are trained from childhood to be builders. We are by providence trained, both educationally and field experience, in all aspects of construction but we specialize in the construction of all facets of school building needs. What sets us apart is for the past twenty five years 90% of our work has been and continues to be the school building industry. What is unique, is that we didn't start with the new school as a whole, but were blessed to construct a classroom addition, add to or renovate a kitchen, renovate the entire structure and over the years build entire new facilities.

We provide per-construction services for all construction management at risk projects along with scheduling (using Primavera Scheduling Software), budgeting, quality assurance, and safety. We provide the owner with a detailed schedule of how and when the project will be completed. We conduct monthly job site quality and performance meetings along with work performance inspections. We feel that a large portion of the qualified work force needed to complete a project can be found in the local communities where the projects are located. We believe in giving back to the community for allowing us to provide them with a quality built educational facility. We pride ourselves in providing a safe and hazard free work place.
