Construction Services

Our construction services and project management expertise have earned us a loyal clientele and a reputation for success. Ranked among the Top 400 General Contractors in Engineering News Record’s annual listing, we offer the knowledge and skill that results in on-time, on-budget construction that keeps us in the forefront of Southeast contracting companies. Plus, we match this expertise with service that’s second-to-none, from permits and building codes to the final walk-through.


Our in-house design/build team underscores the value of a veteran contractor with extensive experience in developing design parameters. We align the creativity you expect, the collaboration you need, and a single source contact for timely communication, precise cost management, fast-track scheduling and a continual focus on budget, quality, schedule and safety.

Traditional Design Bid Build

Founded on hard bid projects, Shelco continues to be a leader in local hard bid markets. By bidding in this competitive arena, we maintain concrete data on current market and real-time costs to save our clients’ money. Through successful competition, we have assembled a solid network of skilled subcontractors and suppliers we can count on for reliable budget pricing.

Construction Management at Risk

Because we started as high-quality builders, our construction management team instills confidence others can’t match. Whether you need construction management at risk, agency construction management or a hybrid, our track record for superior craftsmanship delivered on time and on budget remains impeccable. Because we work closely with owners and team members, we offer guaranteed maximum price (GMP) structures that make everyone feel comfortable with all facets of a project.

Project Management

Our team is led by a dedicated project executive, project manager, on-site job superintendent, director of field operations and director of safety to maintain quality control and safety at all times in the field. This flat management structure affords ready access to all members of the team, as well as prompt decision-making and timely job completion. In addition, each project manager tracks the critical path using our in-house computerized scheduling system, and provides weekly field update lists to senior management, subcontractors, suppliers and owners to keep everyone informed.

Cost Efficiency

To keep each project budget on track, our Computer Methods International Corporation (CMiC) cost-reporting system matches each item with its estimate and details all costs assigned to a job including vendor names, original estimates, estimate changes, purchases, amounts paid, outstanding fees, and any variances between estimates and actual purchases. This detail enables our clients to examine the financial status of their projects at a glance.


Every Shelco project strives not only to be on-time and on-budget but on-point regarding safety and quality.  Our Safety Director assures compliance with constantly changing OSHA requirements and facilitates weekly team meetings with subcontractors to verify all protocols are followed.  In addition, our director conducts pre-construction and pre-task planning meetings with all subcontractors.

“Shelco was able to deliver a high quality finished product while meeting these important milestone dates and staying within budget. This project went extremely well, with no delays, no issues and no change orders! We would recommend Shelco’s team be included in any fast-tracked tenant upfit construction project.”
